FAQ ------ Road To WrestleMania (RTWM-A) Why does it keep crashing at Elimination Chamber? Universe Mode (UNI-A) Why won't Demoliton unlock? I've won the belts X times already! 6. Contact Info and Legal Stuff (CONL) =============== 1. INTRODUCTION (INTRO) =============== Thanks for checking out my guide. I wasn't sure I would do a FAQ for WWE 12 since the RTWM is 100% linear and the unlockables are automatic but after being requested by some users, I decided I may as well. The Universe Mode unlockables were trickier to get as people were unlocking them with different methods and many (including myself) were using the Game Guide as our main source. Short version: I made a topic for the unlockables on the X360 and PS3 WWE 12 boards and my fellow posters were very helpful in working out the kinks in the Universe unlockables. My final findings after many save file deletions are below. Special thanks to Hellion_Claire for being my PS3 tester. Usual stuff with any FAQ, please no hate mail, feel free to email questions you need answered, I might add them and of course let me know of any mistakes you come across. All this information was acquired on my own through trial and error and assistance on the GF message boards, especially for the Universe Mode unlockables. Nobody contributed directly to this FAQ and no other sources were copied, however I have asked questions on the boards and used other sources to assist me in writing this. Also, my apologies for any grammar/spelling mistakes. I use spellcheck frequently but stuff always slips through the cracks. Please let me know if a mistake makes something difficult to understand. As with my previous FAQ, this guide is written solely for GameFAQs and only GameFAQs has the right to host it. ================= 2. GUIDE CONTENTS (GCON) ================= The different sections of this guide are meant to make your navigation easier. Section 3 is a detailed outline Road To WrestleMania (you will see SPOILERS). Please note that Outsider Story tags are using the letter O, NOT a zero (0). Section 4 is a list of unlockables in the same order they're listed in-game. Section 5 will contain a FAQ with some glitches and fixes and Section 6 is for legal stuff and contact information in case you want to help out (be sure to include your name or GameFAQs nickname so you can be credited). ======================= 3. ROAD TO WRESTLEMANIA (RTWM) ======================= ------- ------- VILLAIN (RTWMV) ------- ------- You start in control of John Cena after a real movie-like opening. This should be good. There's nothing to see back here so good left and up to James. Little segment with Big Show and Jack Swagger on your way to the ring. John Cena walks out for his match with Undertaker and you are now in control of Sheamus, thus beginning the Villain Storyline. ------ Week 1 (RTWMV1) ------ As Sheamus you are attacking John Cena, for reasons yet unknown. There's really no point to wrestling right now, just irish whip him up the stage and use your finisher button when prompted for the cutscene. Match: Singles vs. Daniel Bryan This is just a regular singles match, no cutscenes or anything so just finish off Daniel Bryan and you'll move to next week. ------ Week 2 (RTWMV2) ------ Sheamus will kick things off with a promo about wanting a title shot when he interrupted by Bragging Rights Team Smackdown. He'll run up the ramp and Wade Barrett is volunteered for the brawl. Match: Brawl vs. Wade Barrett After a few hits you can use your finisher button to trigger the cutscene. Match: 6-Man Tag w/ William Regal & Drew McIntyre vs. The Miz, Wade Barrett & Jack Swagger Objective: Weaken The Miz. Okay, so you just need to beat on him for a while until he's critical; around the time you hit a finisher you should be close. He'll start reversing everything and trying to run to his corner; LET HIM. You can't pin him anyway for storyline reasons. Cutscene: The Miz ignores Barrett and tags Swagger. Objective: Defeat Swagger. Continue beating on Jack until eventually you get another finisher button prompt. Cutscene of Jack ignoring Barrett and tagging Miz, prompting Barrett to knock them both out with his magical fists. Pinfall and win. I can see this prompting situation is going to make for a long RTWM. ------ Week 3 (RTWMV3) ------ Match: Singles vs. "Dashing" Cody Rhodes This is just a regular singles match, so just finish off Cody and move on. ------ Week 4 (RTWMV4) ------ Match: 6-Man Tag w/ William Regal & Drew McIntyre vs. Edge, Mark Henry & Alberto Del Rio. This is just a regular 6-man tag. Luckily the partners don't interfere too much so you shouldn't have much trouble finishing this one. After the match you get a cutscene of Edge and Sheamus staring each other down when Triple H interrupts and says to save it for Team SD. --------------- Bragging Rights (RTWMVBR) --------------- Match: 14-Man Tag w/ Mark Henry, William Regal, Alberto Del Rio, Triple H, Drew McIntyre & Edge vs. Cody Rhodes, The Miz, Jack Swagger, Big Show, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio & Wade Barrett. Well, unfortunately THQ will not give us more than 6 on screen at one time so you guessed it: cutscenes. You can't lose, you can't get DQed and nobody will tag out or interfere so it's only the people in the ring (unless noted). I just wailed on Cody Rhodes and eliminated him; he doesn't try to tag out and nobody tries to stop the count. Simple. Cutscene: Big Show enters the ring (who has replaced the fallen the pinned man in the 6-man format) and he eliminates Mark Henry and William Regal. Alberto Del Rio and Triple H come out to replace them (off screen). Objective: Finish Big Show. Sounds simple but he's actual quite challenging for Alberto. It took me until my second signature to get Big Show beaten enough for the cutscene prompt. Cutscene: Big Show reverses Alberto's finisher and eliminates him. Objective: Finish Big Show. WTF was that? Anyway, again start beating on a refreshed Big Show; luckily you get your prompt much quicker this time. Cutscene: Triple H and Drew McIntyre come in to help finish Big Show who is defeating by, of all things, a 3-man suplex. Not that Alberto or Sheamus did anything more powerful than that by themselves, right? Randy replaces Big Show. Objective: Finish Randy or Miz. Okay, so you're controlling Triple H now. Continue beating your opponents as you have been all match (and letting the cutscenes tell the story). Cutscene: Facing Randy in the ring, he will accidently hit the ref. Miz throws him a chair and the ref, seeing this, DQs Randy. Miz finishes off Triple H, but Drew hits the SCF on Miz and now we're all tied up. (Note: if you get the prompt with Miz, the cutscene starts with Randy tagging Miz out and then the original cutscene starts so it makes no difference really.) Objective: Defeat Rey Mysterio. You're controlling Drew McIntyre now. Beat on Rey until you get the prompt. Cutscene: Drew slaps Rey, Rey kicks him, 619, Drew is out. You know, I don't like beating somebody just so I can lose. Anyway, I'm not saying another word about this BS. So now it's just a regular match. Nobody will interfere, you still can't tag out, so controlling Sheamus, just defeat Rey. After the pinfall... Cutscene: Wade and Jack stare down Sheamus and Edge, then Wade and Sheamus turn and beat the crap out of Jack and Edge. Drew and Regal return and the four leave the ring together. I think Sheamus patting Wade on the shoulder was a nice touch, don't you? ------ Week 5 (RTWMV5) ------ Cutscene: Edge informs Sheamus there's another match coming up to determine number one contenders but attacks Sheamus now. Match: Singles Backstage Brawl vs. Edge Objective: Wear down Edge and finish him near the arena entrance. You might as well just duke it out where you stand, and once you get the prompt move down the area that's lit pink (just south of where the bout started) and do it there for another quick cutscene. Match: Handicap Backstage Brawl vs. Alberto Del Rio & Jack Swagger Objective: Wear down Jack and Alberto and hit the prompt near the entrance on the last man. Pretty much, after a short beating, I hit the prompt and it threw Alberto into the crates. I then had to attempt a grapple in order to perform the same boot from the end of Edge's fight (which was cutscene). Afterwards, hit the prompt on your last foe in the designated area and cutscene time. ------ Week 6 (RTWMV6) ------ Match: Singles vs. Alberto Del Rio This is just a regular 1-on-1 match. No prompts, nothing fancy, just beat Del Rio and move on to next week. Must win. ------ Week 7 (RTWMV7) ------ Match: Tag w/ Wade Barrett vs. Big Show & Jack Swagger You start out as Barrett and you won't be able to pin anybody or lose. Basically you need to beat both of your opponents until you get the prompt. When one starts reversing everything, leave him alone and he'll run to his corner and tag his partner. After another beating you should get the prompt and a cutscene of Big Show making a statement. ------ Week 8 (RTWMV8) ------ So you start out in Sheamus's locker room. Nothing to see here so leave and Regal will tell you to come to the garage and beat up Big Show. Turn right and follow the corridor. Match: Handicap Backstage Brawl w/ Wade Barrett vs. Big Show You'll get a prompt fairly quickly here to slam Big Show into the crates. Cutscene: Big Show knocks out Barrett. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Big Show Punch and stuff for a little while and you'll get another prompt. Cutscene: Sheamus slams Big Show's arm in a car door. And that's it. I think I spent more time trying to get to the garage than I did in both these "matches". --------------- Survivor Series (RTWMVSS) --------------- Match: 6-man Tag w/ Drew McIntyre & Wade Barrett vs. Jack Swagger, Alberto Del Rio & Edge Objective: Defeat Jack and Alberto. Regal is sitting this one out because Big Show is injured so you'll get some funny commentary from Regal. He also reveals their faction is called the United Kingdom (classic). Drew is stuck in there by himself, you can tag out (uh oh) and Jack and Alberto will tag out each other but never Edge (unless it screws up). Anyway, there's nothing really to, beat them both. Cutscene: Big Show enters and pins Drew. So now it's 2-on-2. Objective: Defeat Big Show. Beat him until you get the prompt. Cutscene: Big Show throws Barrett out of the match, apparently knocking him unconscious (?), Regal gets a chair to the head (unconscious), and Sheamus knocks out Show with a big boot. Objective: Finish Edge. Now it's down to you and Edge. He had a finisher upon entering the ring so I was careful about my reversal but since I never stole it I'm assuming he never tried to use it. Anyway, building up to your finisher should be enough to get the prompt. Cutscene: United Kingdom with the victory. What is gonna happen next? ------ Week 9 (RTWMV9) ------ John Cena is talking about TLC and facing Sheamus when Sheamus runs out. Kofi interrupts and puts his title on the line against Sheamus. Match: Singles vs. Kofi Kingston (U.S. Title Match) No objective here or anything, just beat up Kofi, pin and you are the new champ. You can't lose, and it might have been me but I had a fair bit of trouble reversing Kofi's moves. Took two finishers but I got the pinfall. For being so reluctant, Sheamus sure is happy with that belt. ------- Week 10 (RTWMV10) ------- The United Kingdom get things started with a pretty funny segment re-introducing the European championship. I never understood why they got rid of it to begin with but anyway. Drew steps in it with Rey and he's got himself a match at TLC, much to his distress. Match: Tornado Tag w/ Drew McIntyre vs. Rey Mysterio & John Cena Beat your opponents until you get a prompt. I focused on Rey and got my prompt after hitting my sig. Cutscene: Cena will hit the Attitude Adjustment but Sheamus will knock out the ref in the process. Barrett lays out Cena, throws Sheamus on top of him and the ref makes the count. Finally beating somebody up and using the prompt actually results in a win. ------- Week 11 (RTWMV11) ------- So you start off backstage, looking for The Undertaker. Follow Barrett and you'll get to his lockerroom. You'll see Ted and Cody on the way put you can't talk to them or anything, so just follow Wade. Cutscene, Wade is knocked out and you are left alone with Taker. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. The Undertaker Objective: Finish Undertaker near his lockerroom. Well, you might as stay in that corridor for this fight. It's not difficult but I would like to mention that Sheamus ended up going through the wall at one point. Taker couldn't find him but luckily I was able to move right back into the corridor and everything resumed as normal. Build up to your prompt. Cutscene: Kane runs up with a chokeslam and changes you both to a tag match. Match: Tag w/ Wade Barrett vs. The Undertaker & Kane Beat up your opponent until you get the prompt; you can't pin. You must be getting used to that now. Talk about repetitive. Cutscene: Your opponent goes for chokeslam, Barrett hits him with a belt and he and Sheamus take off. ------- Week 12 (RTWMV12) ------- Match: Mixed 6-Person Tag, Layla w/ William Regal & Drew McIntyre vs. Natalya, Ezekiel Jackson & Christian You should be able to finish this one with Layla if you keep on top of Natalya. The AI is smarter than last year so the guys most likely won't get DQed and thankfully this is a regular tag match, so go ahead, get the pinfall or submission and enjoy this rarity. --- TLC (RTWMVTL) --- Match: TLC vs. John Cena (World HW Title Match) So apparently Wade beat Undertaker for the WWE title, and Drew/Regal won the Tag belts AND Drew won the IC belt. Pretty impressive. On to your match, you must win (shock!). There's no objective but this is a prompt match so bother pulling on the belt, it'll do you no good (tugged on it over 20 times, no dice). Around my second finisher I got the prompt so you need to wear him down a lot. United Kingdom is now on top. ------- Week 13 (RTWMV13) ------- United Kingdom debuts their new music and talk about being the greatest faction in history. Honestly, a month old faction of 4 winning 5 different titles could make such a claim, but Arn Anderson takes exception to that and he's supporting Cena, who is cashing in his rematch clause right now. Match: Singles vs. John Cena (World HW Title Match) Cena is actually fairly easier than he was in the TLC match so have at it until you get the prompt (should be your first finisher). Cutscene: Sheamus gets hit with an AA but hits the ref while counting. Drew runs in, Arn runs in, mayhem ensues. Cena hits the AA, 1-2-thr... Drew pulls the ref outside. Arn goes back at Drew but the ref is forced to DQ Sheamus. (I can't help but think I've seen this on tv before.) ------- Week 14 (RTWMV14) ------- This week opens with a quick promo from Sheamus, and we find out Regal/McIntyre are defending their tag titles tonight. To make matters worse, U.K. is banned from ringside. Kofi throws out some witty comments at the pigmently-challenged Sheamus. Match: Tag, Drew McIntyre & William Regal vs. Kofi Kingston & Daniel Bryan (Unified Tag Team Title Match) Objective: Weaken Daniel Bryan. You can actually tag your partner here so feel free to switch out if desired. Right now your main goal is to beat down Daniel Bryan until he starts reversing everything and running to his corner. Let him tag out. Objective: Defeat Kofi as William Regal. No matter who you beat him up with, you'll only get the prompt as Regal. Cutscene: Kofi reverses, Power of the Punch from Regal and a 3-count. Arn runs out to show the ref the Brass Knuckles and the ref reverses his decision but it doesn't really matter because U.K. still has all the gold. I have a bad feeling about RR coming up. ------- Week 15 (RTWMV15) ------- Welcome to The Cutting Edge. Our first guest, Mr Arn Anderson. Our second and third guests, Wade Barrett and Sheamus. You can see where this is going... Match: In-Ring Brawl w/ Wade Barrett vs. Arn Anderson Beat on him a bit and you'll get your prompt fairly quickly. Cutscene: Edge will congratulate you but you'll have no part of a non-U.K.-er. Match: In-Ring Brawl w/ Wade Barrett vs. Edge. Funny but you should actually get the prompt faster than you did with Arn. Another cutscene of U.K. making a point and that's all, folks. ------- Week 16 (RTWMV16) ------- Match: 6-man Tag w/ Wade Barrett & Drew McIntyre vs. Arn Anderson, John Cena & Edge Objective: Weaken Arn. Best thing about this match is that you can tag but your opponents won't (kind of). Same as usual, weaken Arn until he reverses EVERYTHING and let him tag out. Objective: Keep attacking Cena. I guess they're trying to be creative with their wording. Anyway, attack Cena until he starts reversing everything, then let him tag out. Objective: Finish Edge. I'm not sure how many times "Finish" has actually resulted in winning the match... this time is no exception. Destroy Edge until you get your prompt. It doesn't matter which superstar you're using. Cutscene: Edge reverses into a floating DDT; unfortunately your teammates are preoccupied outside the ring and unable to assist. Spear and done. After all those beatings you still lose. ------------ Royal Rumble (RTWMVRR) ------------ Well, we begin the event by seeing that Triple H has won the rumble. This should make for an interesting WM. Sheamus will come out to congratulate him. Match: In-Ring Brawl vs. Triple H Beat him until you get the prompt and Cena will run out. Match: Singles vs. John Cena (World HW Title Match) Objective: Finish Cena. Arn is playing "Enforcer" (shameless plug) to keep U.K. members from ringside so I don't recommend venturing outside; he'll actually walk around on the apron as well so be careful of that. Otherwise, same as usual, Cena isn't very difficult here, though it seemed like it took unusually long to build up my finisher. When I hit the prompt the scene didn't change right away but then a cutscene kicked in. Cutscene: Cena reverses into an STF, Sheamus crawls to the ropes, then outside. He grabs a chair, Arn stops him and Cena lifts up Sheamus for AA outside the ring. Arn hits Cena with the chair, Sheamus gets the 3-count. I honestly did not see that coming; considering the first 16 weeks I didn't think this RTWM had it in it. Pleasantly surprised. ------- Week 18 (RTWMV18) ------- As Arn and Edge alluded to, U.K. is breaking up their team for a better shot at successfully defending their titles at Elimination Chamber. First up: Match: William Regal vs. Daniel Bryan Very straight forward match. No tricks or anything, just beat Daniel and celebrate with Sheamus. Regal is actually in Barrett's match tho so let's see what happens next week for Sheamus. Unlockable (Attire): Sheamus With Suit ------- Week 19 (RTWMV19) ------- RAW has a surprise: Finally The Miz... has come back... to... oh wait, wrong THE. Anyway, Miz wants his shot at the Elimination Chamber, so here goes. Match: Drew McIntyre vs. The Miz So apparently whatever Miz says, goes because Barrett has left ringside. Well, there's no objective but any pinfall attempt just picks Miz off the mat so beat him until you get a prompt. I actually found Miz reversed a fair bit in the match but it's nothing too troublesome. Cutscene: The ref gets knocked out, Barrett hits McIntyre with the big boot by mistake and The Miz is going to Elimination Chamber. Sorry Sheamus... Unlockable (Attire): Wade Barrett With Suit ------- Week 20 (RTWMV20) ------- Sheamus throws Wade up against the wall but Regal is there to calm everything down and figure out a solution. Alberto Del Rio is outside their lockerroom so Regal suggests they take him out which should also put McIntyre back in the match. Match: Backstage Brawl w/ Wade Barrett & William Regal vs. Alberto Del Rio Same as usual; get Del Rio down to that area that's lit up purple and beat him until you get the prompt. This would be easier by yourself because you may find Regal and Barrett just getting in the way but, you know, for the storyline. Ugh... just keep at it, it's not too painful. Custcene: Uh oh, dissension. ------------------- Elimination Chamber (RTWMVEC) ------------------- Regal and Sheamus are there to congratulate Barrett on his world title defense... or are they? Dun-dun-duhhh... no surprise there. Match: Elimination Chamber vs. John Cena, The Miz, Daniel Bryan, R-Truth & Drew McIntyre (WWE Title) So you start off with John Cena. Beat him for a while and The Miz will enter. Objective: Defeat The Miz before the next pod opens. You shouldn't have any problem here since Cena pretty well ignores you. You'll get the prompt after he's damaged enough. Cutscene of him being eliminated and then it's you and Cena again. Cena is still damaged, continue his pounding until Bryan enters. Objective: Defeat Daniel Bryan outside the ring. Beat him until you see the prompt, then move him outside (if you're still in the ring) and cutscene. Continue pounding on Cena until R-Truth joins the match. Objective: Defeat R-Truth in the Ring. The fact that Cena is getting saved for what I'm assuming is last makes me thinks Drew is going to cost Sheamus the match. Let's see. I had a sig built up by the time R-Truth joined in, and after hitting my sign and finisher only, I received the prompt so it's happening pretty quickly. Cutscene. Objective: Defeat John Cena before the next pods opens. Oh well. There goes that theory. Continue beating on Cena AGAIN until you get the prompt. Cutscene: Cena fights back and McIntyre pretends to go after Sheamus but Future Shocks Cena instead. 1-2-3. Barrett then comes up through the floor and knocks out Sheamus then gives McIntyre the World title. Well, we knew Sheamus wouldn't be leaving with the title. This has to be the fastest implosion ever. ------- Week 21 (RTWMV21) ------- Move Sheamus out of the lockerroom and towards Wade who's doing an interview. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Wade Barrett Objective: Defeat Wade to the right of the vending machine. Same as the others, just beat him enough until you see the prompt. You should already be to the right of the vending machine so if you stay around here you should be okay. Cutscene of Sheamus showing up how stupid he is. ------- Week 22 (RTWMV22) ------- If you listen to the commentary before the week starts you'll find out that U.K. is involved in a Fatal 4-way match at WM for all the gold. Meaning whoever wins gets all the belts. Which is crazy. Sucks for Drew since he has three of them himself. And how does one person holds the tag titles? With some degree of difficulty I would wager. And what about Triple H's title shot? Anyway, Sheamus needs to go track down Regal. Move out of the lockerroom, and towards that hallway with all the doors (right, then right). You can't talk or interact with anybody so just move along. It's the door on the right. Cutscene: Sheamus and Regal come to an understanding, then Drew and Barrett show up. Match: Backstage Brawl w/ William Regal vs. Wade Barrett & Drew McIntyre Same as always. Get one of them to the right of the vending machine and hit the prompt. You know, I think I would rather have all that pointless backstage exploration back (from 2011) then have to do these for the next 48 weeks. Anyway, you can slam one of their heads in the door on the left of the vending machine to knock him out, then get the remaining man near the purple area. One thing I should point out, the prompt pretty much just throws him against the crates and you need to grapple or attack him to get the ending cutscene, so you can end this without using the prompt. I'm sure you figured this out by now, just thought I'd mention it. ------- Week 23 (RTWMV23) ------- Match: Tag w/ William Regal vs. Wade Barrett & Drew McIntyre You should be able to end this one with Barrett still in there. The other man doesn't break up pins so just beat him until you get the victory. ------------ WrestleMania (RTWMVWM) ------------ Match: Fatal 4-Way vs. William Regal, Wade Barrett & Drew McIntyre This match is an elimination, falls count anywhere match as well, so it's divided up. Objective: Defeat William Regal in the ring. Focus your attention on Regal and you should get a prompt around the time you get a sig or finisher. Cutscene of betraying Regal and the others are running away. Chase McIntyre to the garage (which is down past Big Show). Objective: Defeat Drew McIntyre in the garage. Again, you don't need to actually use the prompt button, you just need it to be there. Anyway, cutscene and now we're chasing Barrett. Just go back towards the entrance and you'll get a cutscene of Barrett jumping you from inside the ambulance. Objective: Defeat Wade Barrett near the entrance. Here, I got the prompt which slammed Barrett's head into the crates but it didn't end it. I had to hit prompt again which triggered the cutscene. Cutscene: Barrett goes for wasteland into a light, but Sheamus reverses and Barrett ends up in the spot light. As the ref is putting all the belts on Sheamus the announcer calls the next match... for the WWE Championship! Triple H attacks Sheamus and brings him to the ring. Unlockable (Extra): Outsider Story. -------- -------- OUTSIDER (RTWMO) -------- -------- *This FAQ was written as I was going through RTWM for the first time. This comment was added after completion because I thought it was necessary to prepare you. Triple H's RTWM is very tedious and annoying. You will be doing the same thing many times and have many pointless matches/brawls, but stick with it and the Hero Story (as well as unlockables) will make up for it. You are now controlling Triple H who has his sights set on Sheamus's WWE title. Match: Singles vs. Sheamus (WWE title) This should be quick; after a few punches I hit Sheamus with the WWE title and received the prompt. ------ Week 1 (RTWMO1) ------ Triple H starts out with a promo that Miz interrupts. Tonight begins the KotR tournament that he plans on winning at Extreme Rules. Triple H is also included with his qualifier right now. Match: Singles vs. Zack Ryder Standard match. No prompt or anything, just beat Zack as usual. I found Ryder actually reversed a fair bit here but nothing difficult. ------ Week 2 (RTWMO2) ------ Quarter-Finals. Match: Singles No DQ vs. Dolph Ziggler Standard match. No prompt or anything and actually easier than Ryder. ------ Week 3 (RTWMO3) ------ Semi-Finals. Match: Singles Table vs. Jack Swagger Nothing fancy, again no prompt. I find Tables matches are easiest by leaning against the ropes and throwing your opponent into them rather than having to drag them to a table that's setup. Build up to you sig, finish him, cutscene. ------ Week 4 (RTWMO4) ------ RAW Finals. Match: Steel Cage vs. The Miz Objective: Weaken The Miz. You know what this means: prompt. This match should be your easiest so far; you should get your prompt by the time you have a finisher. Cutscene: Miz, Swagger and Ziggler handcuff Triple H to the cage and beat on his knee with a steel chair. -------------------- Week 53/WrestleMania (RTWMOWM) -------------------- Really! Enjoy the cutscene. ------ Week 5 (RTWMO5) ------ Well, let's just keep this by the game's count. Triple H is back after almost a year off, and he's feeling a little off his game. While looking for his lockerroom (which is North of the arena entrance) he'll have a little confrontation with the NEW King of Kings. He'll call an old friend for a little pep talk and that's where we have a stupidity. Apparently he doesn't really the person he's talking to is standing next to him, then BOOM, Jackknife in the lockerroom and Kevin Nash seemingly disappears. Maybe this was meant to be in his head or something but either way they failed miserably. Triple H heads out of his lockerroom to see that Ziggler has spray painted SUX under Triple H's name plate (the one that wasn't there while we looked for the lockerroom). Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Dolph Ziggler Did this match a few times and Ziggler reversed like crazy out of the gate but once I got some offense going he quickly went down. Once the prompt is there, get him thrown into the environment and grapple to finish him off. Match: Brawl vs. Chavo Guerrero & Ezekiel Jackson Objective: Defeat Chavo and Zeke, beat the last man in the ring. A couple grapple moves will usually keep one man down long enough to punish the other. This is pretty easy and you'll get a prompt quickly. After the first man is down, get in the ring and beat the other until you get the prompt. Cutscene. ------ Week 6 (RTWMO6) ------ Leave your lockerroom and you'll get a cutscene with Orton and Henry. Orton tells Triple H that Miz and his "cronies" are making life hell on SD so he wants them to work together until that situation is resolved. Triple H blows him off (no surprise). Match: Singles vs. John Morrison Standard match, no prompt. ------ Week 7 (RTWMO7) ------ Match: Singles vs. Dolph Ziggler Standard match, no prompt. Ziggler actually poses a challenge this match because he reversed me like crazy. If he didn't have his sig built up by the time I hit mine I'd say he was close. If I retried it might be different though so you may have an easier time.' ------ Week 8 (RTWMO8) ------ Cutscene: Miz and Randy Orton signing the contract for the WWE title match at Extreme Rules when Triple H's music hits. Match: Brawl vs. Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler & Zack Ryder Objective: Knock out Rhodes, Ziggler and Ryder and finish the last man on the side of the ring with the ramp. This is much easier than it first appears. A couple of grapples and each man will stay on the mat for longer than typical. Also, it doesn't take much damage to get the prompt so hit each one as you can. Remember you must finish the last one on the side of the ring with the ramp (left side). Cutscene: Triple H wants in on the title match, The Miz is more than happy to oblige (something's up) so Randy agrees. Ziggler puts himself through a table in a bad attempt at humour. ------------- Extreme Rules (RTWMOER) ------------- Match: Triple Threat vs. The Miz & Randy Orton (WWE Title) Objective: Defeat Randy Orton. Okay, so you know that means prompt. Now, this is actually a very quick match. I used several taunts to get my sig quickly and hit both on Orton and the prompt was up. Cutscene: Ziggler and Swagger attack Triple H while Orton pins The Miz. They handcuff him and attack Orton while Miz recovers. Miz orders them to get the steel steps but while he's carrying them towards Triple H, Orton dives at him, taking out his leg resulting in the steps falling on The Miz. ------ Week 9 (RTWMO9) ------ Cutscene: Triple H complains about Randy when Miz shows up in a wheelchair with some interesting news. ------- Week 10 (RTWMO10) ------- Cutscene: Miz wants to give Triple H his title shot at Orton when Edge complains about Triple H getting so many opportunities. The Miz makes a #1 Contender's match instead. Match: Singles vs. Edge No objective here but you will have to wait for the prompt. Edge isn't difficult but I had to wait until after a few grapples after I hit my finisher to get the prompt. Cutscene: Edge reverses the Pedigree into a Small Package but Ziggler runs out and rolls them over so Triple H has Edge pinned. 1-2-3, nobody knows what happened but Triple H is the #1 Contender. ------- Week 11 (RTWMO11) ------- Cutscene: Edge is doing a promo, accusing Triple H of being in cahoots with The Miz. He calls out Triple H but gets attacked by the "mizfits". Match: Brawl vs. Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler, Zack Ryder & Jack Swagger Objective: Hit all opponents with a finisher. This is pretty easy because even though there's an extra guy this time, Edge is there to help occupy them. Edge will even (sometimes) hit a finisher if a guy has a prompt icon over his head. Worse thing about Edge though is he might get in the way when you're down to one. Oh well. Took me about an extra minute to end it thanks to his "help". Cutscene: Orton hits Triple H with an RKO. ------- Week 12 (RTWMO12) ------- Match: Tag w/ Edge vs. R-Truth & Randy Orton Objective: Defeat Randy Orton in the ring. Beat up R-Truth until he tags in Orton, let him because you can't pin R-Truth anyway. Continue beating Orton until you get the prompt, doesn't matter if you're Edge or Triple H. Cutscene: The mizfits attack and Triple H follows Cody Rhodes backstage. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Cody Rhodes Okay, so you should have these down pat by now so I'm not going to describe them in any great detail unless there's something different about it. Anyway, finish Cody, doesn't matter where this time. -------------- Over The Limit (RTWMOOT) -------------- Match: Singles vs. Randy Orton (WWE Title) Beat Randy until part of him is red to get the prompt. This might take until you get your second sig, maybe sooner. Cutscene: Ziggler goes after Triple H with the handcuffs but Triple H catches him and uses it to strangle him. Kane comes in with a chair but Edge spears him to save Triple H. Match ends in a draw. ------- Week 13 (RTWMO13) ------- The Miz gets to choose one of Randy's opponent at Fatal 4-Way and the other two will be decided in qualifier matches. Also, his contract will be terminated if he interferes in any more PPV matches. Sweet. Match: Triple Threat vs. R-Truth & Cody Rhodes Triple Threat and Four-Way matches tend to take a while longer than typical. This one is no exception, you'll need to wear both opponent down until you can get the pinfall. To avoid having the pinfall broken up, knock one opponent down, throw the other from the ring, then go for the pin on the other man. Simple but you can't do it early. ------- Week 14 (RTWMO14) ------- Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Kane Objective: Finish off Kane near the arena entrance. You know, that purple/pink lit area. Kane reversed like crazy with me and had me beaten to the point of being able to end the match before I had him to that point so this one may be difficult unless you keep at him. Cutscene: Kane chokeslams you onto the concrete floor and tells that he's Miz's hand picked man for the WWE Championship match. So that whole thing was pointless. ------- Week 15 (RTWMO15) ------- Edge will call Triple H and ask him to keep the mizfits from interfering in his match. Triple H agrees and walks out of his dressing room to issue the challenge to his awaiting audience. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger & Cody Rhodes No trouble since the prompts come quickly and the guys stay down longer, as is custom. Once the match is over Triple H will ever Cole/Lawler saying Edge has won his spot in the match. ------- Week 16 (RTWMO16) ------- Match: Triple Threat vs. Edge & Randy Orton No objective here but you can't pin, you just need to beat them until you get the prompt. Ziggler and Rhodes run down to attack Orton and Triple H chases Ziggler to the back. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Dolph Ziggler Objective: Defeat Ziggler to the right of the vending machine. As usual. THQ didn't really think this through before they did it. Anyway, no surprises here Afterwards, R-Truth will run up and say they were attacked by the mizfits. Once he approaches the lockerroom, Kane busts the door open, knocking out R-Truth. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Kane & Jack Swagger They stay down longer than usual once they start getting some damage so keep at them and you can finish them off anywhere, doesn't need to be the entrance area. ----------- Fatal 4-Way (RTWMOF4) ----------- Match: Fatal 4-Way vs. Randy Orton, Kane & Edge (WWE Title) Objective: Weaken all opponents. You need to get all of them in the red, so try to focus on one area of one opponent, then move to the next. Once they start staying down for extended periods you should be clear to move on. They will try to escape during the match so you'll need to keep an eye on that as well. Once all three have beaten enough you'll get the prompt. Cutscene: R-Truth climbs the outside of the cage to assist Orton but instead slams his head into the cage. Edge spears Triple H and gets the 3-count while Kane watches, the two hoist Orton and HHH on their shoulders and R-Truth hits a double Doomsday Device from the top of the cage. Epic. ------- Week 17 (RTWMO17) ------- Match: Handicap vs. Kane & R-Truth Actually easy considering because the other man won't interrupt pinfalls. Try to keep R-Truth in the ring and wear him down, as usual if your pinfalls are being broken up, hit your finisher, knock the illegal man off the apron and quickly go for the cover. ------- Week 18 (RTWMO18) ------- Triple H starts with a promo telling Edge he's getting a rematch at Money The Bank. Miz comes out explains Edge was smart for teaming with him and received the title as a result. Edge comes out in a wheelchair and says he'd give HHH that title shot IF he didn't sprain his ankle. Triple H runs up the ramp after them but the mizfits intercede. Match: Brawl vs. Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes & Zack Ryder This is as easy as the previous ones. Just beat them until you get the prompts and finish it. Simple. ------- Week 20 (RTWMO20) ------- Triple H is doing another promo when Miz interrupts and gives him an opportunity at MitB IF he can defeat Randy Orton. Match: Singles vs. Randy Orton This was easy until I hit my finisher. Orton kicked out at 2 and then started reversing me like crazy and my reversals were suddenly harder to time. Anyway, another Pedigree got the 3-count. ----------------- Money In The Bank (RTWMOMI) ----------------- Match: Money In The Bank vs. Dolph Ziggler, Kane, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger & R-Truth Guess you saw this coming as well. Anyway, you'll have automatic sig/finisher the whole time but what you need to do is get up that ladder and grab the title to initiate a cutscene. Cutscene: Paramedics will take Ziggler away but Swagger will knock you off the ladder. Objective: Hit everybody with a finisher. Make sure nobody gets at the briefcase too long, you can even knock over the ladder and bring it outside if you want. It's not difficult to hit your finisher and it'll keep them down so it gets easier everytime. Cutscene: Triple H is climbing the ladder and Miz is ringside watching. He panics and jumps out of his wheelchair, knocks HHH to the outside, then carries R-Truth up the ladder for the win. Wonder if he'll be fired? ------- Week 21 (RTWMO21) ------- The Miz, Edge and R-Truth are having fun in the ring when Triple H comes out with his sledgehammer. Match: Brawl vs. Kane, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes & Jack Swagger Objective: Hit you opponents with the sledgehammer near the ramp. Really, that's all you have to do: one sledgehammer shot and he's down (times 4). Simpler than simple. Cutscene: Triple H hits Edge and R-Truth with the sledgehammer, then tells Miz that since he lost his GM job, Triple H got him his old job back, as well as getting him in the WWE title match at SummerSlam. Then some Sledgehammer in the face. Awesome! ------- Week 22 (RTWMO22) ------- Match: Tag w/ Randy Orton vs. Edge & The Miz Objective: Defeat your opponents as Triple H. If you want, try to tag Randy before the prompt a little cutscene, but you're doing this alone. You can't pin Edge so, as we've done before, weaken him until he starts reversing everything, then let him tag out. Beat Miz until you get a prompt. Cutscene: Randy begs for a tag and Triple H gives in, only to be RKOed. Randy leaves resulting in a loss by countout. ------- Week 23 (RTWMO23) ------- Match: Singles vs. Randy Orton Beat Randy until you get a prompt. The ring will be surrounded by mizfits and you'll need to clear them out together. Match: Brawl w/ Randy Orton vs. Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler, R-Truth & Kane Objective: Defeat all opponents with a finisher, finishing the last man near the ramp. You may recall you did this with Edge a while back. Same thing here beat them until you get a prompt, hit the finisher, move on. Last one needs to be outside the ring on the ramp side. Cutscene: Orton offers Triple H his hand which HHH accepts but then pedigrees Orton. You knew that was going to happen. ------- Week 24 (RTWMO24) ------- The WWE title match is a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Last Man Standing Match. Triple H and Miz do a promo, then HHH follows Miz backstage. Run to the garage where Miz will jump you; the garage is down past Zeke if you forgotten. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. The Miz Beat Miz until you get the prompt. He'll jump in his car and drive off. ---------- SummerSlam (RTWMOSS) ---------- The Miz enters with Triple H's throne and his King of Kings theme. Guess that's unlocked now. Match: Fatal 4-Way Elimination Last Man Standing vs. Edge, The Miz, Randy Orton Objective: Finish off Randy Orton in the ring. Okay, so this will apparently be very similar to the Villain RTWM. Anyway, focus your attention on Randy. You should get the prompt around the time you receive a second sig/finisher. Cutscene of DDTing Randy outside, and he's out. Objective: Perform a finisher on Edge on the stage. You start outside the ring so either throw Edge up the ramp or run up there yourself and beat Edge until you get the prompt. Once you beat The Miz until he's in the red, hit the prompt to end it all! Or not. Triple H will put The Miz in a figure four and keep it on him even after Miz taps out... in... this... Last Man Standing match...? Miz will call out to his mizfits and you'll have another section of your match. Match: Brawl vs. Dolph Ziggler, Kane, Jack Swagger & R-Truth Objective: Weaken your opponents and hit them with your finisher, finish the last man on the stage. Well, they'll break up your finisher attempts so this can be a little difficult, especially since those shots will take their toll. Keep plugging away and make sure you finish the last man on the stage. Cutscene. Well, I really don't want to spoil it... so I won't since there's no reason to. Unlockable (Extra): Hero Story. ---- ---- HERO (RTWMH) ---- ---- This one begins with Cole and Lawler discussing the NXT participant Jacob Cass. It will lead into a character creation screen where you will create him. I don't recommend spending too much time on him since his moveset and everything will be automatically created for you. Unless you plan to take JC into Universe mode or something, don't bother putting too much time and effort into it. Personal opinion. ------ Week 1 (RTWMH1) ------ Cole and Lawler announce JC won NXT and will be in his first match tonight. You'll start in the lockerroom and when you try to exit Husky Harris will jump you. Match: Brawl vs. Husky Harris Same as always, finish him near the purple-lit area. Rey will jump in for the save. ------ Week 2 (RTWMH2) ------ Match: Singles vs. Daniel Bryan Well, your moveset isn't too bad. Your music sucks though. This matchup isn't hard, your sig and finisher are both vertical so that's good. You also find out Rey was JC's mentor on NXT so that explains the save last week. Also, forgot to mention Jacob is now added to Universe mode. ------ Week 3 (RTWMH3) ------ Match: Tag w/ Daniel Bryan vs. Husky Harris & Justin Gabriel This match is easy since partners don't interfere, however, I don't know if JC's attributes suck but Husky kicked out of my sig and finisher. Anyway, got the 3-count shortly after. Cutscene: Wade Barrett attacks JC and big boots Mysterio who came out for the save. ------ Week 4 (RTWMH4) ------ Match: Singles vs. Justin Gabriel No objective but you need to beat Gabriel until you get the prompt, should have it after you finisher. Cutscene: JC messes up a move and Gabriel (apparently) goes crazy. Cole receives an email saying there will be a new GM for both RAW and SD and he'll be introduced at Survivor Series. No finish to the match so I don't know if JC is still undefeated (not that it matters). --------------- Survivor Series (RTWMHSS) --------------- Match: 6-Man Tag w/ Rey Mysterio & Daniel Bryan vs. Wade Barrett, Husky Harris & Justin Gabriel You start as Daniel Bryan vs. Husky Harris and you can't tag out. There's n objective here but you need to wait for a prompt so just concentrate on one area. Cutscene: Barrett saves Harris from elimination, Harris is then able to beat Bryan. Down to 2, Gabriel steps in against Mysterio. Same as before, go until you get the prompt, shouldn't take as long since Rey has better stats. Cutscene: Barrett saves Gabriel from elimination, pulling Mysterio outside and hitting Wasteland. He throws Rey back in and Gabriel gets a 3-count. JC hurries in and rolls up Gabriel for a 3-count. In comes Barrett. No interference from the partner here and no prompts so take out Barrett and Harris as usual for the win. Cutscene: Barrett will take exception to the loss and attack JC. Cole will announce the new GM is going to reveal himself and Kevin Nash comes out and jackknifes Barrett. ------ Week 5 (RTWMH5) ------ Nash does a promo saying their doing a Clash of Champions tribute show at the end of the month and he's going to be bringing back some old time WCWers as guest hosts. He introduces Arn Anderson who announces the CoC title match will be John Cena vs. Rey Mysterio for WHC. Alberto Del Rio comes out and says he deserves to be part of the title match so Arn says if he can get past JC tonight, he'll get his title match. Match: Singles vs. Alberto Del Rio Del Rio is tough but not difficult so if you it might take more than your sig/finisher to get this one done. Thankfully, no prompts so just win the match as usual. ------ Week 6 (RTWMH6) ------ Match: Tag w/ Husky Harris vs. Tyson Kidd & Ted DiBiase Nash booked this to see if you could work together; the winner also gets to compete against RW Animal and a mystery partner at CoC. You'll notice Harris isn't on the apron so you won't be tagging out here. Beat Kidd until he tags out and then beat DiBiase until you get the prompt. Custcene: Harris sabotages you and DiBiase wins with a small package. LoD music hits and Animal comes out then Vader appears beside him and they walk down towards the ring. Match: Brawl vs. Vader & Animal Objective: Defeat Vader in the ring. Same as every other time, try to focus on Vader eventually you'll get the prompt. Cutscene: Vadersault and JC is done. ------ Week 7 (RTWMH7) ------ Rey Mysterio does a promo about WCW memories which prompts this flashback match. Match: Singles, Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio You control Eddie and you're in the Nitro arena. Pretty spiffy. Seeing Eddie in the ring really brings back some memories. Anyway, you can lose this match, it doesn't matter. ------ Week 8 (RTWMH8) ------ Booker T is this week's guest host and he's arranged for a Loser Leaves RAW match between JC and Husky Harris. Also, the winner gets a match against him at CoC. Very well. Match: Singles vs. Husky Harris Standard match, no prompt or anything. Harris goes to attack JC after but JC gets saved by Booker. JC then bows to Booker and gets a scissors kick for the respect. ---------------------- Clash Of The Champions (RTWMHCC) ---------------------- Match: Singles vs. Booker T Regular match, no prompt or anything so just beat Booker T as usual. He's not difficult. After your win, Rey Mysterio will come out and ask for you to watch his back against Cena. Cutscene: Mysterio and Cena are in the middle of their match when Arn Anderson. Vader, Booker T and Animal come out, take out Mysterio and attack John Cena. Match: Brawl w/ John Cena vs. WCW Your objective is just to keep fighting, so after a while, I guess when one of your opponent's goes red, another cutscene will play. Cutscene: JC gets knocked out with a superkick and they continue to beat on Cena who starts a comeback. Nash comes out to help Cena but instead gives him a jackknife and sets up him for a vadersault. Nash, Vader and Booker than spell out WCW. ------ Week 9 (RTWMH9) ------ Randy Orton calls out Kevin Nash regarding Mysterio's and Cena's injuries, Kevin Nash says whoever wins the Royal Rumble will be WHC. Orton then runs after Nash but is blocked by Animal and Vader. Cut to backstage where JC leaves his lockerroom in time to see John Morrison get chokeslammed by Vader. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Vader Wow, I don't know what's up with this, but I lost this one three times. I don't know if it's JC's attributes or my timing suddenly sucks but my reversal rate dropped to about 25%. Anyway, nothing I can really say except stay on him and try to move the fight down the entrance area because he can finish you anywhere but you can only finish him down there. After the win, JC walks away pretty cocky hearing Taker, Orton and Big Show have cleared out the ringside area of WCW. ------- Week 10 (RTWMH10) ------- Match: Singles vs. Kofi Kingston Standard match, no prompt. Gotta say I'm loving these "real" matches, none of this prompt stuff. Anyway, Kofi poses no real challenge and I guess JC's stats are increasing because I can now get a 3-count after my finisher (could on Booker T as well). Cutscene: While celebrating the victory, Animal and Arn Anderson attack JC. They go for the Doomsday Device when Big Show hits knocks Arn off the turnbuckle and Randy RKOs Animal. Randy sets up the punt kick but Arn pulls Animal to safety. Unlockable: Road Warriors- Animal & Hawk. Unlockable: WWE Tag Team Titles. ------- Week 11 (RTWMH11) ------- You start in your lockerroom, so just leave to find your brawl. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Vader & Booker T Surprisingly easier than last week's (I don't know, maybe my timing is better). You can sort of focus on one man, and when he starts staying down for extended periods, punish the other man. Finish the last man near the arena entrance (shock!). Cutscene: After the win, Kevin Nash beats on you with a crowbar. ------- Week 12 (RTWMH12) ------- Match: Singles vs. Animal You'll begin in a weakened state and Animal will be going for the pin early so be careful. I needed two finishers to put Animal away, luckily no prompts required. Good match. ------------ Royal Rumble (RTWMHRR) ------------ Match: Royal Rumble, #36 (World Heavyweight Title) Objective: Eliminate Kane, Dolph Ziggler, Randy Orton, John Morrison, Rey Mysterio & Ricky Steamboat. Cody Rhodes & Big Show will also be here but can't be eliminated, so either you're supposed to lose or there's a cutscene. Or both. It doesn't matter who eliminates who as long as the objective is completed. Cutscene: Kevin Nash shows up and Big Show & Rhodes hold you back and hit you. Rhodes attempts a CrossRhodes but JC reverses it into an elimination. Big Show comes up from behind with a huge fist and JC is eliminated. Nash presents Show with the WHC and he spray paints WCW on it. (Guess what you just unlocked.) ------- Week 13 (RTWMH13) ------- No JC this week. Big Show and Cody Rhodes are in the ring explaining why they turned their backs on WWE. Taker's music hits but he comes out with Vader and Arn Anderson pummelling him. Orton's music hits... Match: Brawl, Randy Orton vs. Arn Anderson, Big Show & Vader Objective: Hit your finisher on all three men, finish the last one near the announce table. Rhodes ran off so you only have to face three. As if you haven't done this countless times already. This isn't too bad because they don't interfere too much so you should be able to focus on one long enough to get your prompt. Once two are down, make your way towards the announce table and finish the third. Cutscene: Orton punts Anderson, then Show charges through the steel steps. ------- Week 14 (RTWMH14) ------- Match: Tag w/ Rey Mysterio vs. Big Show & Cody Rhodes Standard tag match. You should be able to finish this one yourself but tags are working. Cutscene: After the win, Kevin Nash comes out and tells Rey he has to decide. Mysterio shakes his hand and Show hoists him up the air. Cole says JC returns backstage but Mysterio starts punching Show in the head. JC is nowhere in sight and Show throws Mysterio from the ring and thru the announce table. ------- Week 15 (RTWMH15) ------- JC starts with a promo about WCW eliminating some top names and puts Big Show on his hit list. Show comes out and says he can't compete at Elimination Chamber, but since Taker can't defend his title, the winner will be crowned the new WWE champion. Got a feeling we won't be winning this one but anyway. Lawler and Cole mentioned the qualifiers will be held tonight in steel cage matches. Match: Steel Cage vs. Vader I don't know what's up but Vader is ridiculously hard for me to reverse. I got this first time but he had me beat pretty badly. After I hit my finisher I was straight up the cage and barely managed to escape in time. If he catches you going up then I'd suggest throwing him into the lower left turnbuckle and superplexing him from there to open the door and go out that way. ------- Week 16 (RTWMH16) ------- Lawler and Cole reveal your EC opponents are: Vader, Cody Rhodes, Booker T, Animal & Kevin Nash. And tonight, 1-on-3 Handicap match for you. Match: Handicap vs. Vader, Cody Rhodes & Booker T Well, you'll notice you can't go for a pin but there's no objective either so beat on Vader until he reverses everything, he'll over and tag in Rhodes. This took me until I got my sig. I immediately hit Rhodes with my sig and finisher, then after a few more grapples he tagged in Book. Get The Book in the red and you'll finally get your prompt. Cutscene: Nash comes out and jackknifes JC. Book will go for a scissors kick but Triple H's music will hit. He comes out and pretends to pedigree JC but instead clotheslines Nash outside the ring and pedigrees The Book. He then tells Nash that WWE means more to him than the Kliq and he's the new GM of SD and RAW, BUT... BUT Nash is still in the EC match. ------------------- Elimination Chamber (RTWMHEC) ------------------- Man, I love the EC music. Made it my CAW's theme (in Universe) actually. Anyway, JC walks into his first EC match. Match: Elimination Chamber vs. Booker T, Sheamus, Edge, Kevin Nash & Mystery Opponent. Objective: Defeat Booker T before Kevin Nash enters. So you'll notice the participants are different AND one pod is empty; that would be the mystery opponent. Anyway, you'll have plenty of alone time here so really go all out of Book, once he's in the red (usually after a finisher), Sheamus will come out and you should soon get a prompt. Cutscene: Sheamus double-axe handles JC by mistake and Booker T delivers a Book End for the 3-count. JC gets up and super kicks Book's head off for a 3-count. Then Nash appears. Objective: Defeat Kevin Nash before the mystery opponent arrives. As before, you should get the prompt around the time Edge's cage opens. Cutscene: Big Show slips Nash a crowbar. Nash hits JC and avoids a spear, then hitting Edge with the crowbar and getting the 3-count. The lights flash and Mysterio appears in the empty cage. Nash points to Cass who is laying on the middle rope, Mysterio hits the 619 and Nash pins JC. Finger Poke of Doom later and Mysterio is the new WWE champion. A little spray paint later... ------- Week 17 (RTWMH17) ------- Mysterio and Nash have a funny promo when JC comes out and asks Mysterio what happened. Mysterio says he couldn't refuse their offer and then offers JC a place in the group. JC refuses and Big Show appears behind him. Match: Brawl vs. Big Show Objective: Defeat Big Show on the ramp. Another prompt match; Big Show is very easy (for me) compared to Vader. No idea what the difference is, but anyway. Beat him until you get the prompt. Cutscene: Once again you beat somebody up enough for a cutscene to show you getting owned. Well, almost. Thanks to Triple H for the save. HHH asks Nash what all this is about and Nash says he wants to go back 10 years when WCW and himself ruled the wrestling world; he wants to destroy RAW and bring back NITRO. Triple H wants the titles back so Nash makes him a once-time offer: WrestleMania Tag match. Jacob Cass & Triple H vs. Kevin Nash & Rey Mysterio. HHH accepts. ------- Week 18 (RTWMH18) ------- Match: Tag w/ Triple H vs. Cody Rhodes & Animal Standard tag match, no prompt. They're pretty easy so you should be able to finish them yourself but you can use HHH if need be. ------- Week 19 (RTWMH19) ------- Match: Singles vs. Big Show Non-title, prompt match. This is for WM practice as well but it might not end so well. Big Show can take a lot of damage meaning if Show starts mounting offense he might be able to pin you before you get the prompt. As usual the prompt relies on getting him in the red so try to focus on a specific body part. He should be red by your second finisher, keep in mind you can make some changes to JC's moveset to focus more on specific body parts if you're having trouble. ------- Week 20 (RTWMH20) ------- Open your lockerroom door to see Vader pounding somebody (off screen). You'll yell at him to knock it off and Vader and Animal will start walking towards you. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Vader & Animal I was really hoping these were done with, or at least the Vader ones who seems to have my #, but oh well. But after doing the match I may have spoken out of turn since they're pretty easy. As usual they'll stay down longer than normal allowing you to focus on one so you'd best use that to your advantage. Running grapples are usually successful as well (always a good tactic for large groups). Finish the first man wherever but the second near the purple area. Cutscene: JC walks towards Mysterio and says the time for words is over. Nash proceeds to lay him out with the crowbar. Mysterio seems remorseful. ------------ WrestleMania (RTWMHWM) ------------ JC is admiring the audience, feeling doubtful but after a Triple H pep talk, it's time. Match: Elimination Tag w/ Triple H vs. Kevin Nash & Rey Mysterio Objective: Tag in your partner. For real; that's all you have to do. Don't bother wasting your time with Nash because the cutscene splits the match in half. Cutscene: Triple gets tagged in, Nash slaps him, Triple H knees him in the gut, Pedigree, 3-count. Mysterio hits him from behind, 619, 3-count. Just like that it's down to 2. Now we put Mysterio in the red to get a prompt. Cutscene: JC hits his finisher but the ref is knocked out. Mysterio starts getting up so he runs to the ropes and Nash hits him with the crowbar AGAIN. 1-2-3 and WCW is back. Nash spray paints the ring NITRO. ------- Week 21 (RTWMH21) ------- Everything is Nitro in WWE now and Nash is soaking it up when Triple H interrupts his promo. Triple says this is WWE and although he's got the banners and the ring he doesn't have legitimacy; WCW is still dead. HHH offers a 12-man HiaC for total control of RAW, no one-year stuff. Nash accepts but the match will take place at StarrCade. ------- Week 22 (RTWMH22) ------- Edge and Miz blame JC for losing RAW so he challenges to a match, which they accept. Match: Handicap vs. The Miz & Edge This is a prompt match but you won't want to throw the controller afterwards so don't worry. As usual, beat Miz until he starts reversing everything and runs for the tag. Believe it or not he started reversing everything right when I went for my finisher so guess what he stole? Edge then took it into the match but he didn't use it oddly enough. Anyway, once Edge is in the orange you'll get the prompt. Cutscene: JC is handling Edge when Miz attacks him from behind. JC is resting against the bottom turnbuckle when Miz hits a bronco buster!! No, I'm just kidding. Vader and Booker T come out and attack Miz and Edge, JC gets to make the save. Edge offers a handshake then prods Miz into one. ------- Week 24 (RTWMH24) ------- I don't know where week 23 went but anyway. Open JC's lockerroom door and get attacked by Vader and Animal. (sigh) Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Vader & Animal This one is even easier than the last one. Finish the last man near the purple area. Then Cody will call out to JC and you'll chase him to the garage. Match: Backstage Brawl vs. Cody Rhodes & Booker T These guys can take a lot of damage before you get the prompt so make sure they don't damage you took much or you'd better be excellent at reversals. Just finish them in the garage, there's no reason to leave the area anyway. Cutscene: Triple and Sheamus show up, HHH gets an idea and JC & Sheamus throw Cody Rhodes into the trunk of a car and HHH drives off. --------- StarrCade (RTWMHSC) --------- Triple H interrupts Nash's promo to introduce the rest of team WWE: John Cena, The Undertaker and... Mr. McMahon. Match: 12-Man Elimination Hell In A Cell w/ John Cena, Sheamus, Triple H, Mr. McMahon & vs. Vader, Booker T, Big Show, Animal, Rey Mysterio & Kevin Nash So JC starts the match with Vader. Cole/Lawler kindly explain the rules: 2 men start the match, then every minute another man enters, alternating from each team and the team that eliminates all their opponents wins. Not sure if that's a whole minute (didn't feel like it) and Booker T comes into the match. I concentrated on Vader and by the time Cena came in, I had him in the red. Cutscene of Vader stopping JC at a 2-count to go for a vadersault, JC moves and rolls Vader up for the 3-count. (I never received the prompt to break out of the cell either so I don't think that's an option in this match.) The match then continues wherever it left off so I still have The Book and Cena in here. Big Show is next in but I'm concentrating on Book since he's yellow. Sheamus made his entrance to trigger a cutscene of him getting owned by Show and we're all even. Few more grapples and Book is red so another cutscene. JC throws Book out of the ring and Book tries for a Book End onto the steel steps but JC reverses into a "MASSIVE" brainbuster, then throws him into the ring for a 3-count. Start on Big Show and Cena kind of just stands there and watches (mostly). Animal is next in and triggers a cutscene of Cena getting speared by Show and defeated. This can be tough because unlock all those backstage brawls, these two are constantly trying to hit you. Shortly after Triple H will enter and he'll be followed by Rey Mysterio, followed by Mr. McMahon. Big Show and Animal really put a hurting on JC here and he got pinned, restarting the match with all the current participants but everybody was refreshed. Just wanted to point that out. You can't finish Mysterio here so go after either Animal or Big Show (after McMahon is out). For Animal, Triple H breaks up a pinfall attempt on JC, hits the Pedigree and gets the 3. For Show, Mr. McMahon hits a low blow from behind and JC, HHH and McMahon pile up for the 3-count. Once they're both out another cutscene triggers of Nash appearing, jackknifing and eliminating Triple H. It's you and McMahon against Mysterio and Nash. Taker will show up and once Mysterio is red, he can now be eliminated (but not Nash) to trigger the next cutscene. Taker will try to Last Ride Mysterio onto a chair but Mysterio will reverse and kick Taker into the chair, getting the 3-count (weak). JC will then slam Mysterio into the chair and get the 3-count (new champ maybe?). Now it's Nash against JC and McMahon. Once he's red, you can trigger another cutscene. Nash will run and grab the crowbar, hit JC with it, then absolutely brutalize McMahon. Nash will pin McMahon, then lazily lay across JC conveniently enough to not see JC's arm shoot up before the three count. The audience goes wild but Nash thinks he's won. A refreshed Nash will begin beating on you and I found the best way to put him in the red was pound him with the steel steps. However you do it, you'll get a prompt. JC has some impressive offense going and he doesn't stumble on the ropes this time. Nash is on the outside and JC flies through the ropes, only for Nash to sidestep and JC takes out the cell wall. JC gets back up and Nash goes for a jackknife outside the ring but JC grabs the cage wall and starts climbing. Nash follows... You're both refreshed again so wear him down AGAIN until you get the prompt. Enjoy the (brief and sudden) ending. Congratulations. The Hero Story was really good but it doesn't quite make up for the stupidity of the Villain Story or the tedious, boring, repetitiveness of the Outsider Story in my opinion. Hopefully you enjoyed it more than I did but I will say I'm glad they ended it with a strong story. ============== 4.

FAQ ====== Road To WrestleMania -------------------- (RTWM-A) Why does it keep crashing at Elimination Chamber (Hero Story)? Answer: This is a glitch that might happen if you change Jacob Cass's moveset. The general fix is to go back into the moveset and set it to default again. I'm not 100% but I think it only happens if you remove the superkick from JC's finishers. Universe Mode ------------- (UNI-A) Why won't Demoliton unlock? I've won the belts X times already! Answer: Sometimes just winning the belts without editing the match at all isn't enough. Some people have reported only unlocking them at WrestleMania (and not even year 1 WM). I know you can unlock them on the first RAW of Universe mode but if you're past that, try to win the belts at WM and see if that does it. ================== 6.
