Basic singles match, use it to get used to your character’s move set.
Prior to triggering your next story match, look for Randy Orton in the east locker room. Talk to him, and he’ll pick a fight with you. Beat him to clear the first challenge match.
Another basic singles match, no surprises.
Prior to triggering your next story match, look for Vladimir Kozlov in the interview area near the gorilla position. Talk to him, and he’ll pick a fight with you. Beat him to clear the second challenge match.
Triple threat match, but there will be no winner here, no matter how well you do. Fight hard either way, though.
Standard tag match, no surprises.
Prior to triggering the next story match, look for Dolph Ziggler in front of the door to the GM’s office. Just approaching him will trigger the brawl. Beat him to clear the third challenge match.
Triple threat ladder match, which will be your first real challenge. The trick to multi-man ladder matches is to let the other guys do most of your work for you. Pick one opponent and beat on him as much as you can while the other guy actually fetches a ladder and gets it in the ring. When you have the first guy injured, or if the second guy starts climbing early, you’ll need to switch your focus. Use a lot of running attacks to keep both opponents on the ground as much as possible.
Once the match has gone on for a couple minutes and everyone is weak, you’ll need to keep both guys as busy as possible. If you have Hammer Throw, keep throwing them out of the ring (especially on the same side) so they stay down and have to work extra hard to stop you. If you don’t have Hammer Throw, you can still try throwing your opponents to the ropes and attack to send them over, or throw them to the corners and just leave them injured against the turnbuckle. Once both guys are occupied, set up your ladder, climb up, and snag that briefcase. Remember that there is no object meter this year in the game, so the important thing will be to climb the ladder and start flicking the right stick like your life is dependent on it.
A little gimmicky and VERY freaky (look at the audience!), it’s you against 14 opponents. Despite the fact that your opponents look like they’re on the same team, they will attack each other as well as you. Just fight this like any battle royal or Royal Rumble: keep your momentum high, fling guys over the top rope, go for fast eliminations to minimize getting caught by surprise, and take any double team opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.
No DQ singles match. Finlay starts off with a weapon, so beat him down and take it, then start hitting him with it. Chairs, tables, and anything under the ring: grab it all, use it all, and Finlay will go down shortly.
Standard handicap match with tag rules. There is a surprise here: the first few times you go for a signature or finisher, you will be interrupted and not allowed to go through with it. However, after enough attempts, you’ll be able to finally pull it off. You’ll also see a minor bizarre interruption during the match, but ignore it and just attack.
Otherwise, you basically want to treat this like a standard singles match, but right before you’re ready to make the pin, run over and clothesline the illegal man off the apron. It should be enough for you make the pin.
No DQ singles match, but you have to “achieve a five-star match.” What this means — as the pre-match popup box helpfully tells you — is that you must perform five specific moves to fully clear the match. It’s pretty simple in practice: you do both your signatures, both your finishers, and you must put Shawn Michaels through one of the announcer’s tables.
Dealing with the table should be your first priority. Get out of the ring, press against either table with the left stick, and use the action button (A or X, depending on system) to clear the table. Get Shawn out of the ring, whip him against the table. Grapple with him again to prop him up completely on the table. Then, run into the ring, get on the turnbuckle, and fly off to put him through it. Note that you don’t need your momentum filled to do this.
After that, it’s a simple matter of getting in the ring and doing a basic singles match to build up your momentum. Hit both your signatures and both your finishers, make the pin, and you’re good to go.
In the next storyline segment, you’re supposed to go to the interview area. Near that will be standing Big Show. Speak to him (don’t shove him), and let him challenge you to a match at WWE Superstars. After he makes the challenge, you can then shove him and pick a fight if you wish. Either way, once he makes his challenge, you can be free to continue the story.
Standard singles match here, but you get the optional goal of “not letting Jake do much damage to you.” Basically, if your character starts holding a body part, you have failed. Just use quick strikes and plenty of running attacks to wear him down. Once he’s hurt, start busting out stronger moves. End the match as normal. If you succeed in your goal, you will unlock Jake “The Snake.”
If you let Big Show challenge you prior to Match 10, you get to face him in a Tables Match at Superstars. Unlike it would be in reality, this isn’t too tough, and there are no surprises. Win here, and you’ll clear the fourth challenge match.
Standard singles match, with the optional goal to win within three minutes. Same strategy as with Match 10: fight fast, fight hard, and use your signature and finisher as quickly as possible. Win within three minutes, and you unlock Jimmy Snuka.
If you have collected all the souls up to this point, there will only be a single one left prior to Match 16. Grab it, and you will unlock Kane’s old-school outfit.
Standard singles match, no surprises.
Prior to your next story match, look for Batista in the east locker room. Talk to him to trigger a backstage brawl. Beat him to clear the fifth challenge match.
This is a standard Backstage Brawl, with the special (and required) goal of beating him in under 90 seconds. The best way to pull this off is to immediately throw him into the TV just above your starting position repeatedly. You can start your next throw while Paul is still in his animation of selling a throw. After about five or six such throws, you’ll see that your finisher is charged. Hit your finisher, and you should be done, though you may have to hit a second finisher to fully end it.
Now, if your character doesn’t have a standard finisher, then you can’t win this. It’s no problem if you run into this: just exit the game, assign a finisher from the front for now, then head back in. The autosave will have triggered prior to the match, so you won’t lose any progress.
Be sure to save prior to this match in case you lose. Unlike other matches in RtWM, if you lose here, that’s the end of the story.
If you have cleared every challenge match up to this point, then you can get a special match at WrestleMania. Prior to triggering your fight with Undertaker, head to the green room. The Rock is just hanging out in there, standing and staring off into space. Go up and talk to him. He won’t say anything but you’ll immediately start a one-on-one Last Man Standing match.
For all intents and purposes, this is a no DQ and no countout standard singles match. Just beat the hell out of the Brahma Bull, then back off and let the ref count to ten. Rock will probably get up at some point unless you hit him with a finisher or put him through a table. Win here, and you’ll unlock the Great One.
Standard singles match, no surprises, but Taker is pretty tough. He’ll reverse quite often, and he gains his momentum faster than normal. You need to time your own counters and reverses perfectly to keep him at bay. This is a standard match but you should make good use of ringside, throwing him into barricades and whatnot to lower his health.
Remember, he can’t pin you outside, so if you need to, exit the ring to regroup and make him chase you a bit, especially if he builds up his finisher and you need to kill some time. Also remember that you can fling Taker out of the ring, then taunt a few times, to build up your momentum so you can hit your signatures and finishers as necessary.
Beating the Undertaker will unlock Paul Bearer.
Losing to him will end the story and net you the achievement or trophy, but it won’t unlock anything for you.
And that’s it hopefully The Dead Man is now 18-1.
