SMACKDOWN Here Comes the Pain
When you are in a submission/Bra and Panties hold, instead of
pressing only X press X, Square, Circle
and Triangle to make the meter go up or down (depending
on who started it). Also, if you are in the training room (only
in a hardcore match) go to a treadmill and press Square.
You should start walking. Press all of the buttons to charge your
Hint: Elimination Chamber match: Shatter
You can shatter the glass by Irish Whipping someone into them. It will do a lot of damage to them. It does not matter if the chamber is occupied or not.
Hint: Elimination Chamber match: Climb
You can climb the cage by pressing Toward the cage and Square. You can climb up slightly, then move left or right until you get on top of the chamber. You can also climb on top of the chamber by getting on the turnbuckle first and then pressing Up + Square.
Hint: Elimination Chamber match: Easy win:
When it is your turn to enter the match, immediately climb the chamber wall (Square + D-pad) and move toward the holding chambers. Do not get on top of them. When an opponent approaches you, move on top of the holding chamber. Your opponent will climb the wall after you. As soon as this happens, press Square to get onto the turnbuckle. Your opponent will follow you and get on top of holding chamber. Then, press Square (do not also press the D-pad or you will climb back up again) to get back onto the mat. Your opponent will jump off the top of the holding chamber and will hit the mat. This causes extreme damage to your opponent. You can repeat this as many times as needed. This works under any difficulty setting.
Get a wrestler with a top rope move (for example, RVD). Get your
opponent weak and climb on top of the one of the cells then do
your special. You should get the 3 count.
Hint: Hardcore match: Easy win:
During a hardcore match, bring your opponent backstage to the area where you can ride the Undertaker's motorcycle. Irish Whip your opponent into the semi with the WWE insignia. He will automatically climb it, and walk off. Each time this is done, it will affect his entire body. Repeat this until his meter is red.
If you are one of the initial two superstars, fight to build up
your SmackDown meter until another opponent is released. Climb
out through the ropes and stand as close to the cage as possible.
Keep taunting while the other wrestlers are battling it out between
them. If a superstar approaches you, throw him back into the ring,
then continue taunting. Eventually when there is only one other
superstar remaining, you should have a few finishers ready. Lay
the SmackDown a couple of times and pick up the victory. It may
take a while, but may be worth it. This also helps if you pick
up a lot of damage in the match and do not want to risk losing.
Choose the Training Room. You can Irish Whip your opponent against
the wall. It will break after you do this twice. In there, you
can also throw your opponent into the showers or the lockers,
which will do some damage.
Hint: Hardcore match: Jump from the light
post to the helicopter:
Note: You must purchase the Times Square arena in season mode for this trick. When you get to the Times Square location, climb up the light post in the bottom right corner and press Square. Then, have someone else climb on the helicopter ladder by going directly under it and pressing Square. Have the person on the light post aim at the player on the ladder. Jump and you will knock down the player. You will now be on the ladder.
Hint: Hardcore match: Get signature experience
Go to the training room backstage in a hardcore match. Find a treadmill and press Square while facing it to get on. You will begin to walk on it. To gain experience, repeatedly tap X. The faster you tap X, the quicker you will gain experience.
Hint: Hell In The Cell match: Easy win:
Break open one of the two sections in the top of the cell first. Then, go up to the top and the CPU opponent will follow you. Move yourself so that the opponent will step right into the open spot, falling to the ground and suffering major damage. The key is to stay on the side of the hole that is opposite of the CPU opponent.
Get out of the ring and grab your opponent's feet to choke him
on the ropes, then exit the door. Wait until your opponent comes
out of the cell and do a move to knock him down. Climb to the
top of the cell. If your character has a SmackDown! move that
does not involve the ropes (for example, the 619, etc.), go over
to the doors on the floor and slam him through the door. Pin him
for the win.
Break your opponent through one middle thing. Then, get out of
the ring and get back on the top. When they climb back up, make
sure you are on the opposite side of you. When they try to get
you, circle so that you will always be on the opposite side. When
they walk straight they should fall into the ring. Note: When
they fall in, power up by taunting. Note: Keep doing this until
your opponent is in the red, then get down, do your special, and
Hint: Royal Rumble match: Better number:
Use this trick to get a higher number in the Royal Rumble. Whenever Eric Bishoff spins the wheel for your number in the Royal Rumble, if it is low, reset the game and try again. The number will be different each time.
Hint: Tag match: Easy win:
In a normal tag match, do you special until your opponent is in the red. Then, knock the other person down and they should go back on the outside of the apron. Very rarely they may try to break it up, but they will not be able to make it on time.
In a normal tag match, beat your opponent up until you can get
a three count on them. Then, pin him and press Select to
change to your partner. Run in the ring and stop the opponent
from breaking up the three count.
Hint: TLC match: Serious air time:
When doing the TLC match, take both tables and throw them onto the table at ringside. Set the one table up, and throw the other one on top of the first. Then, climb onto that table, and set the other one directly on top of it. Grab the ladder and toss that onto the first table, then the other table. It will be thrown onto the highest table. Set the ladder up, and you now have three tables with a ladder on top. Climb all three tables and the ladder. You can do high flyer moves from very high in the air. As long as your opponent is close, you can land on them for some serious damage. If you miss, you are going to lose the upper hand. This also works on the RAW set with JR and King's announcer table, although you seem to be limited to the ladder and one table. If you break the RAW table prior to setting this up, you can have both tables and the ladder. The moves from the ladder will now be done from high above a concrete floor. If you are in a tornado tag match, and someone tips the ladder, both of you will take serious damage from the high fall onto the floor. You cannot climb sets in HCTP, but you can still do serious high flying.
Hint: TLC match: Wear opponent down faster:
If you are in a Ladder or TLC match, when you use the grapple move for the ladder, (Up + X or Down + X) and your opponent is lying on the ladder in the ring on the floor, quickly climb a turnbuckle. Jump off onto the person lying on the ladder so that when you jump on them, the ladder goes into their back while they are lying on it to do more damage. Note: This works better when you use Rob Van Dam's Five Star Frog Splash when jumping on your opponent.
Hint: TLC match: Use the ladder when in
When competing in a TLC match, there will be a ladder in the upper left-hand corner. In the upper right-hand corner will be a table. There are two ways to use the ladder to knock your opponent onto the ladder. First, you can pick up the ladder and press X + Down to drop the ladder and put your opponent on it. You can use it while it is in the corner; just throw your opponent towards that corner and he will land on it, similar to if you had thrown him onto the table. From there, press Circle + Up, Down, Left, or Right to do a move involving the ladder Note: It may not work for every direction.
Hint: Season mode: Easy money:
IF you hold a title in season mode, you will get more money in every match your superstar is in. Also, holding more than one title will let you have more than one match, resulting in more money.
Hint: Season mode: Easy win:
In season mode, set up a table in the corner of the ring and move near it until the CPU opponent puts you through it. They will be disqualified, and you will win the match, getting more respect and superstar points.
Take the fight outside the ring. Use every tactic you can without
getting DQed (for example, whipping opponent into steps, audience
barricade, etc.). Do this enough and your opponent will be "laid
out" (spread-eagle). Get into the ring and you will win by
count-out. Slamming your opponent through the announcer's table(s)
will not get you DQed and will do a lot of damage.
Hint: Season mode: Skip matches:
After a year of season mode, you will be able to skip your matches. Note: When you skip, you will automatically lose.
Hint: Season mode: Enter females:
The game normally will not allow female created superstars into season mode. If you want to enter a created female superstar into season mode,go into create mode, go to the character's profile, and change the gender to "other". You can now take your female character into season, and get some points to increase her stats and make her ready to compete. However, since the gender will no longer be female, you still cannot go for the women's championship. Once you are done with your season, you can change the gender back to female and still keep the points.
Hint: Season mode: Las Vegas roulette:
Whenever your show is at Las Vegas, Eric Bisschoff (Raw) or Stephanie McMahon(Smackdown) will run Raw or Smackdown Roulette. In this, they will spin a roulette wheel to choose the show's matches. Note: They will only pick for you.
When you reach October 1st in season mode (depending on if you formed a faction or not), you will compete in the RAW or SmackDown! roulette. If you do not like the match you are in, then reset the game. You will get a different match. Note: A money match is recommended.
Hint: Slobberknocker mode: Keep specials
When you are running out of specials, grab a garbage can lid, then press Left and hit the opponent two times to get a special. Repeat this as needed.
Hint: Parking lot: Electrocution:
Backstage in the parking lot, you will see an electric box with a little fence around it. Irish Whip your opponent into the fence and it will fall down. Then, Irish Whip your opponent into the electric box to electrocute them.
Hint: Parking lot: Freight box:
In the parking lot there is a another vehicle (not the motorcycle but the other yellow forklift). To get more than one more box after you are done pressing Circle and there are no more, go to the bottom left of the area with the vehicle. One more freight box should appear on the carrier. You can do this as many times as desired.
Hint: Parking lot: Ride vehicles:
When you reach the parking lot where Undertaker's bike and a forklift is located, you can ride them by pressing Square. On the forklift, you can drop the box onto the opponent by making the lift go up and down. If you are on Undertaker's bike, you can grab the opponent and drag him around the lot.
In the parking lot, you can ride a motorcycle. If you pull off the throttle and press Circle, you will grab someone. Quickly hold on the throttle and you will drag him. While driving, press Circle and you will throw him.
Hint: Parking lot: High flying from semi
To the far right of the parking lot is the WWE semi truck. If you look at the ground, you will notice a white arrow on it. Walk over to the truck, press Triangle + Right on the D-pad. You will jump onto the top of the semi truck. From here, you can do high flying moves or knock your opponent onto the ground for serious damage. Note: You cannot get down without damage unless you hit a move. You can only dive out until the arrow becomes narrow, anything past and you will hit the ground.
Hint: Parking lot: Easy win:
Equip your wrestler with "Shuffle Sidekick 3" as a ready striking move. In the parking lot, climb atop the semi. When the opponent follows, use the kick and they will fall backwards off the semi. The AI will repeat climbing back up, and you can continue to knock them back down for some heavy damage each fall.
Equip your wrestler with the F-5 (from powerslam position). Run to the semi in the parking lot and get on top of it before your opponent. When they climb up, get below them on the screen and hit them with a toe kick to stun them. Perform the F-5 and your opponent will crash face first into the ground. This causes a huge amount of damage and makes for an easy victory.
When in a hardcore match or a match that places you in the parking lot, go to the middle of the semi truck and get next to it with the opponent. Irish Whip him into the truck and you will then rub his face on the side. Turn him around and slam the back of his head into the truck. It may not do a lot of damage, but it looks good.
Hint: Times Square: Actions:
To climb up the ladder, press a direction + Triangle.
To climb up the ladder then other level with the words going across, press a direction + Triangle, then Up + Triangle
To climb up the ladder then other thing with the words going across, climb to where it says "Smackdown!", then press Up + Triangle.
There are four store windows that you can open. Irish Whip your opponent into the glass (located on right and left side of ladder). There are two or three on the left side and one on the right side.
Weapons that can be used behind the glass windows include a mannequin and shopping cart.
To get on the helicopter, get directly in the middle of the helicopter windm then press Square. Then, aim where you want to land
Note: You can also blow up cars

Hint: Times Square: Very high flying move:
When standing on the tip top area in Times Square, you can do a very high flying move by pressing Toward the street on the D-pad + Square.
Hint: Times Square: Exploding cars:
Climb the top of the ladder then climb it again and press Square. You will do a frog splash and can make cars explode.
Hint: Training room: Hidden area:
When you are doing an Hardcore match, go to the training room and you will notice a wall that has a crack in it. Irish Whip your opponent into the wall two or three times. The wall will fall down. There will be a little steam room that you can throw your opponent into, and two closet with Diva posters in them.
Hint: Training room: Walk on treadmill:
If you get on the treadmill, you can walk on it by holding Square.
Hint: Training room: Easy special from
When in the training room, hop onto the treadmill. By tapping X while walking, your wrestling will start to run. This causes your special to fill very quickly. You can then keep hitting your special for the win.
Hint: Training room: TV monitor weapon:
To obtain the TV Monitor as a weapon, go to the training room and whip your opponent into the stand with the monitor on it. It will fall and become available to use.
Hint: Training room: Opponent in the toilet:
When fighting in the training room, there will be a toilet in the far left corner. Irish Whip (throw) your opponent into the toilet straight on. He will go into the toilet, with his head dangerously close to it. The door closes, and the wrestler walks back out, while you hear a flushing sound.
Hint: Backstage valves and controls:
The backstage has two valves that you can turn. Each valve has a different color and they work only for the pipe with the same color. Walk up to the valve and press Square. There is also two control panels that you can push. One is on the upper level, and the other is on the lower level. Press Square when your opponent is in front of the garage door on the lower level and you will see boxes and everything flying out at them. The cage also can be broken. Throw you opponent just right on the cage and it will break. They will then have to rip off the left side of the cage wall in order to get out.
Hint: Exit backstage cage:
In the Arena backlot entrance, you can drive your opponent through the top of a cage the is on the far right side of the room. Once inside the cage, it will seem that you have no escape. Walk to one of the edges and press Square. Keep tapping Square and you will shake the cage door until it falls off.
Hint: Take off turnbuckle:
When in the ring, approach any turnbuckle and press Square to take them off. When outside of the ring, Irish Whip your opponent into the turnbuckle pole. They should now be leaning against it. Press Up + Circle or like you are doing a move and you will slam their head into the pole and throw them in the ring.
Hint: Drag opponent:
When your opponent is on the ground, hold Circle and a desired direction to drag him or her.
Hint: Hit opponent while dragging them:

Hint: Do opponent's second finisher:
You can do your opponent's second finisher(if they have one) by holding L2 and pressing L1 + D-pad. Note: You must have two SmackDown moves in order to do this.
Hint: Quick finisher:
When you are starting a match, clothesline your opponent (Triangle + X), then press Circle + X and quickly press L1.
Hint: Faster running without increasing
Go to "Create an Animation", "Create a Running Style", then go to the samples. Choose the one with the character ice skating. Name it and continue, then make your character have that as your running style. He will run very fast. Note: When you run to a turnbuckle to get on, it will stop. If an opponent Irish Whips you to the turnbuckle, you will not be leaning on it, and will be ready to attack.
In a match that allows interference, press R3 to have someone come to your rescue. This only works if you can have interference in a match and if you are in a stable.
Hint: Standing Anglelock:
Choose any superstar who is assigned with Anglelock 1 or Anglelock 2. Reverse any type of striking kick and tap L1 quickly to do the standing Anglelock.
Hint: Perfect Chokeslam:
To do a perfect Chokeslam, give someone with a Chokeslam the Goldberg Wake-Up. Then, while your opponent is up and his or her back is facing you, do a Taunt Kane 4 and execute your Chokeslam.
Hint: Drop kick with chair:
To drop kick a person with a chair, go to "Moves", then for "Fighting Style" pick RVD.
Hint: Shooting Star Press on ground:
Set one of your taunts to be Spiny Roony 1. Next, set one of specials to Shooting Star 2. Finally, have a match and do the taunt. The SmackDown icon will appear very quickly. If timed correctly, you will do the Shooting Star Press. Note: You cannot do this in the ring.
Hint: Extra Smackdown special for Wrestlemania
When competing in the main event as the champion defending his title, during one of the week's shows before your championship match you will be interviewed (by whom depends on show, RAW or Smackdown). In the interview, you will be asked a series of questions. Each question has a negative answer followed by a positive answer. Answer all three questions the respectful way (positive) and you will receive an extra Smackdown special for your match at Wrestlmania, as well as 3 Superstar points on the night of the interview.
Hint: Run over someone's car:
Note: This may not work in every season. Begin a season mode as anyone and become a big superstar. A few months before the Survivor series, you will be shown arriving to the arena in a car. You will walk away and another superstar will approach you and say that his is better. You will have two choices; to ignore or attack him. Choose to attack him, and you will be in a match. A couple of weeks later, it will show you leaving the arena and get in the car. The superstar that you attacked will pick you up in a forklift then tip over the car with you inside. One week later on your way out, he will throw you in his trunk and drive off. The week later at the beginning of the show, that same enemy will appear and talk about it. You will then be shown walking in the back, getting in a monster truck, and run over his car. At Survivor series, if you win the match it will show the medics carrying away your opponent on a stretcher.
Hint: Getting weapons:
You can grab weapons from under the ring on the outside by pressing Square in the center of the ring. You can only grab one weapon from each side of the ring.
Hint: World Title or WWE Title:
In story mode. if you have over 85 SP you can challenge the main title. If you are on Raw, it is the World Title. If you are on SmackDown, it is the WWE Title. Instead of asking for the title shot, you must get involved with a storyline involving the current champion. In Raw it is HHH, and in SmackDown it is Angle. If you continue to do well in your matches, eventually Vince McMahon may give you a title shot at the next PPV against the champ.
Hint: Women's Title:
Enter a created female into the season (as a female). In any match she is in, go to play and select her. Eventually they will give her a title shot. Play that match and win. Note: If she is in the second position when you select "Play" press the D-pad over and it will select her.
Hint: Title shots:
In season mode, if you want a title shot, go to the "Move" option and choose "GM Room". The titles vary, depending if you are on Raw or SmackDown. You can challenge for every title on the show except for the World Title or WWE Title. You have to have enough SP to get a title shot. The only way you do not get a title shot is if you do not have enough points, or you are too involved with a storyline.
Whenever you have a title and you do not want to defend it, exit out of the game. You will lose the title. The next week, go to the general manager and request a shot for the title you just lost. You can now earn it back easily. This will ensure that you have a title match every week and give you additional money to help unlock expensive items.
In order to get a World/WWE title shot, you first need to make
yourself the number one contender. Check your status in season
by looking at the title information. Then, you need to start the
first week or whichever promotion you belong to and reject any
storylines people present you with. At some point Vince McMahon
or someone else will offer you a shot at the title.
To get a title shot during season mode, you must have at least the following amount of superstar points and not be involved in any storylines. Note: You cannot win the Women's Title in season mode. Also, you must talk to your GM with that amount of Superstar Points.
Cruiserweight: 60 points
Hardcore: 60 points
Intercontinental Championship: 70 points
U.S. Championship: 70 points
World Heavyweight: 85 points
World Tag Team: 130 points(combined)
WWE Championship: 85 points
WWE Tag Team: 130 points(combined)
Hint: Easy wins:
Note: This trick only works in a match where DQ is on. At the start of the match, kick your opponent or just go outside the ring. Go to where the table is under the mat then press Square and take out the table. Get back inside the ring with the table and set it on one of the corners quickly, or the referee will take the table away and take it back outside. Then, keep running toward the corner where the table is, putting yourself onto the table. If the opponent is close enough, he or she will grab you and put you through the table, causing a DQ and making you the winner.
Note: This trick only works in a no DQ match. To get an easy win with a sledgehammer, you need to have a running move that will knock down the referee (such as the Sweet Chin Music). In a no DQ match, run towards the referee and do the running attack. Go to the outside the ring and get the sledgehammer from the bottom lower apron. Run back in the ring and use the sledgehammer grapple attack. It will give you most of your special bar. It also damages your opponent after two times. You can probably get in two sledgehammer grapples while the referee is down. Do this repeatedly to weaken your opponent and get specials. Then, do your specials to your opponent and you should get an easy pin (if you have two powerful specials).
Unlock Ted DiBiase. Switch one of your wrestler's finishers to the "Million $ Dream". While in the match, work on the opponent's head. When their damage meter's head turns red, lock in the Million $ Dream. The slider bar will have a small amount to go before submission. This trick also works with the Dragon Sleeper 2. That way, you do not have to use a special.
In a single match, go over to the side of the stage and fight until they are weak. Make sure that they will tap out, then knock them down and run into the ring. When they get in the ring, knock them down and make them tap out. Note: Your body might be weak; do not let them touch you.
Go outside of the ring. Go up to the apron nearest to the ramp and press Square to pull out a table. Get in the ring, walk towards the turnbuckle, and press Square while pressing and looking in the direction of the turnbuckle that you want to set the table on. Do this quickly or the referee will take the table away. Then, run to it and the other wrestler will throw you into it and get disqualified. This works in tag matches and singles in exhibition or season. This will not work in a table or non-DQ match.
Choose a wrestler that has a special front grapple move, such as Brock Lesnar. Go to the top turnbuckle and side. Get your special meter up and Irish Whip your opponent into that turnbuckle. Walk towards him and press L1. You should do your finisher. Once he hits the ground, pin him and you should win.
Note: Disqualification must be on for this trick. When you start the match, get your opponent on the ground in the middle of the ring. Go outside the ring and get the table from under the ring (the top of your screen), and bring the table in the ring with you. If your opponent is standing, knock him or her to the ground again. Set up the table in one of the turnbuckles. When your opponent gets up and close to you, run into the table. About 90% of the time, your opponent will grab and throw you into the table, causing him to be disqualified and giving you the win.
Hint: Easy specials:
Hold Down/Left or Down/Right and press Attack. This will have the wrestler perform a straight kick to the stomach and stun them for more then enough time for you to press L1 to do your special. This works for all wrestlers. To do your opponent's special move, hold L2 then press L1.
Knock out the referee by running at him and trying to tackle him. Then, go outside and grab a chair from under the ring. Either run back into the ring or wait for the opponent to come out. Then, keep X + Right pressing to continuously hit your opponent in the stomach. Keep doing this and you gain your special very fast, and also do serious damage to your opponent. Note: Make sure to throw the weapon away when the referee is getting up or else you will get DQed.
Hint: Popcorn combo attack:
The following is a one to six hit taunt attack that sounds like popcorn popping because it can hit so fast. Go to "Create Animation" then to "Create Taunt". It is best to pick one simple motion, such as charge or step in. Select the explosion looking icon (where you can put an attack for a specific limb). After you pick a body part and it flashes red in the frames where you want it, press Triangle to go back a step and choose another body part until both arms, head, body, and each leg is flashing red. The whole body can be marked in red all at once. Save the move and give it to your character. It is very cheap and fun, especially since you can taunt attack into another taunt into a normal 3-hit combo. This results in a possible 1 to 9-hit combo if your opponent does not fall down before all the hits connect.
Hint: Post-match actions:
After you defeat your opponent a small menu may open up at the bottom. "Taunt" will allow your character to do a post-match taunt. "Attack" allows you to beat up your opponent. Early in season mode, the "Attack" option may often be reversed by your opponent, especially if you have suffered more body damage than them, or have lower stats. "Respect" has your character shake hands with and cheer for your defeated opponent. Sometimes your opponent will attack you during this. Note: This does not work during any other matches than normal matches, and will not work with female characters.
Note: This does not work in exhibition mode . It will appear occasionally in season mode only when there is no intermission sequence or event happening after a match .
Hint: See wrestler:
In season mode, when you go to move, the only place it will let you go is the GM Office. If you go there then exit, most of the time when you go back into move you will be able to see a wrestler.
Hint: No blood:
Certain people in the game cannot bleed, including all women (original or created).
Hint: Brock Lesnar: Easy win:
When you start, rush your opponent and Close Line them. When they are on their back, press Left + Square. He will start to knee your opponent in the head about six times. You can do this repeatedly. Then, when your opponent is lying on his face, press Right + Circle and tap Left + X + Square and your opponent will tap out.
Hint: Brock Lesnar: Shooting Star Press:
In an Elimination Chamber match, go onto a turn buckle as Brock Lesnar then press Square. You will now climb on top of a chamber. Then, press Down + X to do the Shooting Star Press.
Hint: Chris Jericho: Combo:
Irish Whip your opponent to the ropes, then run the opposite way. When you are running back to your opponent, press Square to duck and get behind them. Back away slightly from them. Then, run to them and press Circle to do the Bulldog. Finally, quickly do his Lionsault special and pin.
Hint: Goldberg: Easy win:
When the match starts , toe-kick (Down/Left + X) your opponent and do a spear (run towards him and press Circle). If done correctly , he should lie on the ground . Go beside your opponent's head and press Left + Circle. Your opponent should slowly stand up and turn his body around, facing you . Immediately do a spear. Keep doing this process until the status of your opponent's body turns red . You should have some Smackdown! icons stored . You can make use of them to do Goldberg's Spear or Jackhammer . Do this a few times and pin the opponent. You should win the match easily without any damage done by the opponent.
Note: This trick only works in a cage match . When the match starts , try to get the opponent groggy by doing a toe-kick (Down/Left + X) . Run towards him/her and do a spear (press Circle while running) , which is not the finisher . If the opponent did not counter the spear, you will immediately climb the cage . Climb the cage quickly by rotating the D-pad or Left Analog-stick counterclockwise. By the time your opponent gets back to his feet, you will either be on top of the cage or have already won the match . This works well if you do the spear near the cage and climb quickly.
When you start to fight someone in an Elimination Chamber match, make sure you Spear them a lot until their mid section is red. Then, take them out to the outside and whip them through two chamber containers made of glass. This should make all of their body yellow. Then, simply Jackhammer them. You almost always will get the pin.
When playing as Goldberg, use your running move a lot (Triangle + X), and your X button combo. When he is on the ground and you have a special, always pick him up and use it. You will win matches much faster.
Keep Irish Whipping your opponent into the turnbuckle and Spearing him or her by pressing X. It will injure their ribs and fill up your special meter. Keep doing this until you have a Smackdown! and use the Spear. It will almost always be a three count.
Hint: Kane: Classic version:
To unlock the classic Kane, buy the Kane card at Shopzone. You will now be prompted every time you use Kane if you want the mask on or off.
Hint: Randy Orton: Real entrance:
To get Randy Orton's real entrance, set his entrance move to Christian.
Hint: Rey Mysterio: West Coast Pop with
When playing as Rey Mysterio, instead of needing a Smackdown to do the West Coast Pop, whip your opponent into a turnbuckle and press the Circle + Left. If done correctly, Rey should do the West Coast Pop.
Hint: Rey Mysterio: Perfect 619 without
To do a perfect 619 without the special, do Rey Mysterio's submission grapple (Down + Circle). Then, press Down + Circle again. He will do the drop toe hold that he does for his special move. Then, when they are hanging on the ropes, run and press X. If done correctly, he will do the 619 that he does for his special move. You can also attempt this alone without the drop toe hold.
Hint: The Rock: Perfect Rock Bottom:
This requires one of The Rock's special meters to be filled. When your opponent is on the ground, go to his/her head and press Left + Circle or Right + Circle button. If done correctly, the Rock will stalk his opponent, and Smackdown! will flash above. Press L1 and you will have completed the perfect Rock Bottom.
Hint: Shawn Michaels: Hit the Sweet Chin
Music from the corner:
Instead of pressing L1 from front position, floor your opponent in the center of the ring, move by their upper body, and press L1. Shawn will move to the corner, do his trademark foot stomping, then hit the Sweet Chin Music on his opponent just as they are back on their feet.
Hint: Shawn Michaels: Special entrance
from Wrestlemania XII:
It is to see the entrance that Shawn Michaels did at Wrestlemania XII when he fought Bret Hart in the Ironman match, do the season mode as Shawn Michaels and win the rumble, allowing you to be the #1 contender. Then, just before Wrestlemania (the week or two before it), the coach will approach you and say that they have ideas for your entrance at Wrestlemania. When he offers if you want to hear them, reply "Yes". At the Wrestlemania, he will come down from the rafters as he did against Bret Hart.
Hint: Shawn Michaels: Wrestlemania entrance:
During story mode, if you are the champion defending your title at the main event at Wrestlemania, someone (depending on show) will approach you and ask if you have a moment to speak with the stage crew about your Wrestlemania entrance. This will occur sometime in the weeks before Wrestlemania. Answer "Yes" to speak to them about your entrance. Then, at Wrestlemania you will come down to the ring on a wire from the rafters, just as Shawn Michaels did at his Classic Wrestlemania match.
Hint: Sting: Entrance from the rafters:
Create (Crow) Sting, then play in season mode. Make it to the Wrestlemania main event, and make sure you talk to the stage managers about your Wrestlemania entrance. At Wrestlemania, when Sting does the special Shawn Michaels entrance, it will be similar to him coming from the rafters.
Hint: Jerry "The King" Lawler
Play season mode until you go Jerry Lawler's hometown (Memphis, TN). If you are a face, you will see Lawler backstage. Your character and Lawler will have a conversation. He will then ask for your assistance. If you choose to assist him, you will team up in a match with him. Note: This does not mean that you have unlocked him for season or exhibition modes.
Hint: Tazz appearance:
Play in season mod until it is time to go on a UK tour. Before the event starts, Tazz will appear (with his suit) and ask if you will go on the UK tour. Note: This does not mean that you have unlocked him for season or exhibition modes.
Hint: Spike Dudley appearance:
If you watch the Dudley Boyz video carefully, during some of the flashes you will see Spike Dudley's face.
Hint: Chris Jericho's song without countdown:
If you leave the default team of Chris Jericho and Christian, notice that in create a stable, their the music will be blank. Leave it that way and when they have tag matches, their music will be Y2J's without the countdown.
Hint: nWo Black and white entrance graphics:
In order to get the nWo entrance graphics from WWE: Smackdown: Just Bring It, use Matt Hardy's entrance.

Hint: Difficulty differences:
When setting the difficulty of the game, keep the following in mind:
Easy: Player attacks do twice as much damage. CPU takes heavy damage from falls (top of Hell In The Cell, backstage areas). Reversals are very easy for the player and the CPU opponent does not reverse often. Weapon attacks are reversed often.
Normal: Player attacks do normal damage, CPU attacks do normal damage. Reversals are slightly more difficult to do, CPU reverses moves more often. Both CPU and player take moderate damage from high falls. Weapons are reversed very often.
Hard: Player attacks less damage, CPU attacks do twice as much damage. Reversals for player are very difficult, CPU reverses moves almost all the time. Player takes extremely heavy damage from high falls, CPU takes very minimal damage from falls. Weapons are reversed almost all the time.
SmackDown!: Player attacks do less than half damage, CPU attacks do nearly four times as much damage. Player almost cannot reverse attacks, CPU reverses almost all attacks. Falls for player are fatal (for example, falling from a high area will do 100% damage to the player across entire body). CPU is not hurt by falls. Weapon attacks are always reversed by CPU, and can not be reversed by player. SmackDown! meter fills up twice as fast for CPU opponent, and takes twice as long to fill up for player.
Note: The higher the difficulty, the more money, creation points, and superstar points you will receive for winning matches.
Hint: More points for character creation:
This is the simplest method of getting more creation points for created wrestlers. Create a generic male character. Try to set his stats to an equal amount, or leave them alone. Simply create the character and do not bother with the looks or move set. Set the game difficulty to "SmackDown!", which is the highest setting. This will get you the most points per match. Every time you have a match, set up a table in the corner turnbuckle and force yourself on it, and have the CPU player throw you through it for an instant DQ. You will gain the highest possible amount of creation points. When you have a suitable amount (about 1000 or more), go back to "Create a Superstar" option and copy the wrestler as many times as desired. You will then have all the creation points that he has at the time. For female wrestlers, set the gender as "Other" in the profile section and do the same thing. You can set the difficulty as high or as low as desired, however by setting the difficulty to "SmackDown!" you will receive the most amount of creation points.
Set the game difficulty to SmackDown!. When you play matches with DQ on, always put a table on the turnbuckle, then keep running into it and try to get DQed. If it is mostly any other match, like No DQ, always get a sledgehammer and press Up or Down + X to choke them out with it.
Hint: Hidden female wrestlers:
Go to create mode and create an appearance. Create a female. If you select the sample model, you will find Shaniqua, Nidia, Mae Young, Gail Kim, a witch, and others.
