1.1) Reverse 10 Strikes Superstar: Any Match: Any Reverse 10 strikes in a match Strategy: Pick someone with good technique, like Angle, and play against Tajiri to get it done easily. If you wish you could try and get the 10 Grapples done as well. Remember, it is L2 to reverse a strike. Reversing requires precision. It is easier with the grapples. But for the Strikes, as soon as you see them move their foot or hand, press L2. __________________________________________________________________ 1.2) Match: Any Superstars: Single Reverse 10 Grapples Same as 10 Strikes, but instead of Tajiri, pick Cena. This one is relatively easy, just be sure to reverse a lot. It is R2 to Reverse a Grapple. My best advice is to wait 2 seconds while they are grappling you, then press R2 and it will reverse whatever they attempt. __________________________________________________________________ 1.3) Double team challenge Match: Any tag format match Superstars: Any Perform 3 Double team moves in a match Quite easy, do it in tag match, and do corner grapples. It is a whole lot easier to use people who have good tag team attributes, such as La Resistance or The Bashams. Irish whip the opponent into your corner, then press Circle and a Direction to do a double team move. It would be easier in a Handicap Match Though __________________________________________________________________ 1.4) Perform 3 Finishers Match: Single Superstars: Any one Easy enough, just get 3 finishers as anyone to beat it. It will take some work but after the second finisher, they should be easy prey. Pick a clean guy, as their aerial moves can get up their finishers quickly. You do not have to win the match. __________________________________________________________________ 1.5) Steal Taunt Match Type: Single Superstar: Any It is easy, just get a super clean metre full, then taunt. You do not have to win the match, but you have to complete the taunt. It is best to do a power move inside, get full momentum, then go outside and steal the taunt. That way, you do not have to worry about it being interrupted. __________________________________________________________________ 1.6) Steal Finisher Same setup as Steal Taunt, but stock a super clean move and use the finisher steal. Then, pin the opponent. To steal a finisher, just get full momentum and a stored finisher, then get into their situation and press L2+L1. It is best to go against someone like Triple H, Benoit, Cena or anyone else who has a front finisher. __________________________________________________________________ 1.7) Dive Challenge Match: Singles Superstar: Any Just perform 5 dive attacks to the outside. Use a cruiserweight for best results. You can also do an aerial move. I recommend that you use a super clean guy, that way, you can get the steal a taunt, and, steal a finisher challenge done here. Which is good because you get 3 Challenges done in one match. __________________________________________________________________ 1.8) Destroy commentators table Match: Singles Superstar: Any Just do a move through both commentators tables. Make sure they break and win the match. __________________________________________________________________ 1.9) Possum Match: Singles Superstar: Any Perform a possum attack. While you are down, you must have a stocked finisher and you have to have the momentum meter full. Hold O and press L2 to reverse a strike, and R2 to reverse a grapple. To pin, it is R2 and to strike, it is L2. You do not have to win the match to get the challenge completed. __________________________________________________________________ 1.10) Finisher reversal Match: Singles Superstar: Any Just reverse a finisher. When the time is right press, R2 + L2. You do not need to have anything stocked to reverse it. __________________________________________________________________ 1.11) Super Dirty Move Match: Singles Superstar: Any Dirty Character against Anyone Perform a Super Dirty Tactic. Get super dirty metre up full, then do the move __________________________________________________________________ 1.12) Kick Out of A Possum Pin Match: Singles Superstar: Any This is relatively easy if you can get out of pins quick enough. Just kick out as you normally would. But it does take forever for your opponent to do a possum pin, so it is much easier just to use a second character here. You do not have to win the match to get the challenge completed, you just have to kick out of the pin. __________________________________________________________________ 1.13) Interrupt a Stolen Taunt When a person steals your taunt, attack them. Challenge done. Keep in mind that they have to actually be a clean wrestler. I recommend using two players for this because in my entire plays of the game, only one Computer controlled wrestler has stolen a taunt from me, which I interuppted. But I had already done the challenge. __________________________________________________________________ 1.14) Throw 10 opponents Match: 30 Man Royal Rumble Anyone Throw 10 opponents out by yourself in the rumble. It is hard, but it is possible. You should pick Big Show or Andre. Then, grapple by the ropes to lift them over the ropes.

Best way to do this is to hit with a chair 4 times. Since you can do this in any kind of match, do it in a Hardcore match. You do not have to get the win, but after breaking 4 weapons, it is pretty much implied that you will win. __________________________________________________________________ All Amateur challenges done and Wrestlemania 21 Arena unlocked.

Pick someone with good endurance, like Angle or Show. Alternatively, use two players, build up two finishers on the second controller and use them. Then, do not use the second controller again in the match. __________________________________________________________________ 2.4) No Limb Damage Superstars: Anyone vs Anyone Match: Any Win without getting any limb damage at all Pick someone with good endurance against someone with weak stats. I used Angle vs Heidenreich. Or you could use two players, and just not use on of the controllers at all to do this. __________________________________________________________________ 2.5) Lets spank Match: Fulfill your Fantasy battle royal Superstars: Anyone vs Anyone Perform 3 Spank Moves succesfully This should be challenging, but easy at the same time.

You have to repeat this 3 times. __________________________________________________________________ 2.6) Ironman Match Match: Ironman, Single Superstars: Anyone vs Anyone Win the match by 5 or more points Since you can play with 2 Players, select 2 players. Then just beat on the second player and you should get the win quickly. But even without 2 players, it should be easy to do. Hit a finisher, then pin. Get them all red and do power moves. Pin them 4 more times and just run away from them when they come close to you. __________________________________________________________________ 2.7) No Finisher Challenge Match: Singles Superstar: Any Win a match without using any finishers Easy. Just pick someone with very high strength, like Big Show, and just use your power moves ______________________________________ 2.8) Without Storing a Finisher Match: Any Superstars: Any Win a match without storing a finisher You can use a finisher though. Soon as you get it, use it and pin to get t he win. Just be sure to use it as soon as you get it. __________________________________________________________________ 2.9) Casket Finisher challenge Match: Buried Alive Superstars: Anyone versus Anyone Perform a finisher into the casket This is tricky as it requires precision. Get right next to the casket with a finisher, and perform your finisher into the casket. You also have to have a stocked finisher and full momentum. You then press L1 While next to the casket. To get them groggy, irish whip into casket. __________________________________________________________________ 2.10) The Top of The Cell Match: Hell In A Cell Superstars: Anyone vs Anyone Throw someone off the cell and win the match Get 2 players, then get on top of the cell.

When his head is red, get him on the ground and do the Leg Drop _______________ 3.5) ECW Rematch Match: Single without manager Superstars: Benoit vs Guerrero Arena: ECW One Night Stand Defeat Guerrero Easy enough given how durable Benoit is. Lock the crossface in as soon as you get it. He will counter a lot though so use lots of reversals, then get some quick grapples in. _____________________ 3.6)Rest in Peace Match: Buried Alive Superstars: Undertaker vs Kane Beat Kane This is hard.
