|Increase SmackDown Meter|
During a match, you can quickly increase your Smackdown Meter until it is full, by pressing Taunt. If your SmackDown meter is almost empty, you will have to repeat this a few times. After every taunt, you will see your meter grow a percentage until it is full.
Note: When performing a taunt, it leaves you open for your opponent to attack. This is best performed while they are either groggy or on the opposite side of the arena.
When creating a wrestler, you can make people such as Ric Flair, Hall, Nash and others and the announcer will actually say their names.
|Secret Standard Attacks|
Play as any wrestler in any match. One on one works the best. After beating down your opponent for awhile, the recovery will be slower. Grapple the person and get near the ropes by holding the D-pad. When close to the ropes, press R2. If done correctly, the opponent will be resting on the ropes. Press Triangle or press R1 and an Attack button to clothesline them over. You will also flip out of the ring. This also works with the back grapple. In this case, Triangle does the attack where your wrestler chokes the opponent with the middle rope, and R1 and an Attack button performs a hurdle onto the opponent.
|Skip Matches In Career Mode|
When you are in a match in career mode, select "End Match" and you can then go on to the next arena without fighting that match.
|Throw Opponent Over Top Rope|
Press Circle to tie them up, use the D-pad to push them back up against the ropes, then press R2.
