Press Dodge when your opponent is doing a move on your wrestler. If done correctly, your wrestler will pretend to be stunned. Do not move to remain in the fake stun.

Hint: Winning a 3-on-1 Hardcore
Grab a weapon and run to where the wrestlers appear. Use the weapon and fight all three of them (who will not have weapons). They will not go back to get any weapons, and none will fall where you are fighting.
For another way to win, run to the outside of the ring before any CPU wrestler attacks as the match begins. Then, run when the wrestlers try to jump over the top rope. Target one wrestler while still on the outside and beat him while ignoring the rest, if possible. If not, just throw the wrestler down, then press Block, change view, and do the same move. Do this until the person is on the floor or standing up in a dazed position. Then, quickly enter the ring. One wrestler should be eliminated. Then. do this again to eliminate the second wrestler and face only one CPU wrestler. . You can face him and beat him down, or just run outside and wait for him to be dazed and get back into the ring at the last second.
Hint: Time Out Victory:
While in a Triple Threat/ Triangle/War mode match, select 3 or 4 players. Then, do the most damage and have the person who did all the moves in the entire matchget counted out. This works best with a 1:00 time limit. After the time is up the message "<wrestler name> wins by declaration of Vince McMahon" will appear.

- Double Powerbomb: Front and back of CPU wrestler
- Double Supplex: Both in front of CPU wrestler
- Double Legsplitter: Both at legs of CPU wrestler on ground
- Doomsday Device: Have one partner on turnbuckle and the other with the opponent on his/her shoulders. Then, have the partner on the turnbuckle press Punch to perform the move.
Hint: Royal Rumble Elimination:

Hint: Two-on-One Matches:
When you are facing two people (usually in career mode) instead of trying to pin the opponents, keep beating them up until time runs out. If your wrestler hits them enough, you will win by most damage.
Hint: I Quit Cage Match:
In the odd time you are playing this type of match, do not waste your time trying to get your opponent to submit. You can still win by climbing out of the cage.

Hint: Stunning the CPU in Tag Team

Hint: Training for Reversals:

Start a vs. match, select your character, choose default as your opponent, and set the time to no limit. This will allow you to train against that move.
Hint: Getting Your Opponent Booed:
Start a match that is not a weapon or cage type. Run and slide down to the outside. Your opponent will follow you soon. Slide back into the ring, then slide out again when your opponent gets onto the apron. When you slide down again, your opponent will turn around and get ready to get down to the floor again. Slide back in before he or she gets down, and the crowd will begin to boo. This is useful to get the crowd to stop cheering for your opponent.
Hint: Baseball Swing with Weapon:
Get your opponent stunned in a hardcore match:. Get a weapon that you use with two hands, such as the ladder or the chair and hit your opponent. Your wrestler will do a baseball swing with that weapon.
Hint: Sliding Strategy:

Repeat this until your opponent is knocked out, then perform a springboard to them to do a lot of damage. Keep repeating this until they are in the red, then pin them.
Hint: Walk Around After Match Ends:
Start moving immediately before the time runs out. Your wrestler will be able to walk around for a few seconds.
