Do not train to increase your skill level on a CAW until you buy the premium ability kits. If you do, it will be a waste of time since the skill levels will be set to the defaults. Train only after you have purchased it to bring it from the 80s to the 90s and 100s.
Use either a created wrestler or an original superstar, and make sure you have two controllers. Choose your match in 24/7 mode and select your opponent. Do not select your wrestler. When the match begins and it is just normal rules, grab a weapon and hit your wrestler for the DQ, or you can just get counted out. This results in an easy victory for the character you selected. In a Fatal 4 Way match, put both players one and two on any two goons. Focus on the single CPU wrestler and help your character to an easy win. This will work under any difficulty setting. Simply switch the CPU opponent to your control and cause him to lose.

When first starting 24/7 mode, you are given four exhibition bouts and your salary is $2,000 a week during that time. After completing these exhibitions you will get a set salary, which is based on your popularity. Do not waste your time training. You have four days before each bout. Spend $1,500 on three trophy dates and one day signing autographs a week. Watch your fatigue level and pace yourself so you do not go past your last two strikes or you will get injured. If you get injured it is no big deal since it's usually a minor injury for four weeks. Your early matches are very easy. Once done, you will get $16,000 a week. Whether you win or lose your bout does not matter. Use that money to purchase skill kits. The basic kit is $30,000 and premium kit is $110,000. Get the basic kit first. Your salary does not change once under contract until it expires again. Note: a $1 million dollar contract is only $20,000 a week.
When trying to become the General Manager Of The Year in GM mode, follow the 30 CAW creation and drafting method, but only use 25. Before Wrestlemania, fire all of you superstars to have the best superstars be stolen by the opposing shows. Then, turn them off from being drafted and have nothing but three CAWs on your roster (the other two are insurance in case you do not get it the second year either). After Wrestlemania, switch your high level popularity characters back to "on" in the roster section and rehire them. You will most likely have had to renew the contracts soon anyway. For example, buy only six superstars (Edge, John Cena, Triple H, Undertaker, Rey Mysterio, and Shawn Michaels), however buy a full year's contract. Skip to the two weeks before Wrestlemania. Set up the CAWs, turning those characters off, because by that point two to four of them will have 100 popularity, which may make your ratings plummet after the event.
Use the following hint to complete the Hall Of Fame mode task that requires completing a Royal Rumble under the Legendary difficulty entering at number 1. At the main menu, enter the "Options" menu, select"Gameplay Settings", then "Custom A.I." settings. Scroll until you get to frequency of COM's usage. There will be a couple bars. Set them all down to the lowest possible so that your opponent cannot reverse attacks. Play a Royal Rumble and put your entry to number 1. When you start the match, you can easily throw your opponent out, but you must do it before the number 3 entrant comes out. The trick is to wait facing the ramp just outside the third rope's shadow. When the superstars come out, simply wait until they have gotten up and then just Irish Whip them over the ropes. Repeat this until you have won the Royal Rumble.
Set the difficulty on Legend and begin the Royal Rumble match as the #1 entrant as The Great Khali. When the match starts, Strong Irish Whip the #2 entrant over any top rope. Once they are over the top rope and are on the apron, strike them nonstop and relentlessly. When the #3 entrant is four seconds away from entering the Royal Rumble (check the timer on the left side of the screen), stop striking the #2 entrant and grab them. If done correctly, the #2 entrant's meter should be halfway or more gone, resulting in easy pickings when you grab them. Do this to entrant after entrant to ensure victory in the Royal Rumble.
-Select a superstar that is overall better than 90 in attributes (your choice). Begin 24/7 mode and simulate the entire year by going all the way to March on the calendar. Choose the "Wrestlemania" icon. You will be asked if you want to simulate everything until this point. Accept it and answer "Yes".
-Choose a superstar that has high popularity and attribute points (for example, HHH or Cena). Start 24/7 Season mode under the Legend difficulty setting. When you get to the locker room, select the calendar and go down until Wrestlemania. Select "Yes I would like to simulate the days" and wait. This will take a bit of time. Participate in your Wrestlemania match and look at your money. It should be in the high thousands, if not millions. Do this two or three times and you will have enough money for everything you need from the shop.
Using any dirty superstar, store your fighting style icon and use the dirty special move. When your oppenent turns around, press theRight Analog-stick Right to roll him up and grab his tights for the win.
As a GM in 24/7 mode, pick a pre-set roster and set your champions. Go forward a couple of weeks into the calendar, and simulate matches up until that date. Renew the contracts of a couple of your superstars for as long as is possible (make sure you include your champions). Go to the calendar, select a date just before the contracts expire, and select to simulate up until this point. You will have made enough to renew the contracts again. Repeat the same procedure until you get to WrestleMania. You should get there with a couple of decent superstars to compete in a championship match. Put the championship on the line, and fight the match to unlock Vince McMahon.
To do a 619 as Rey Mysterio in a Parking Lot Brawl, Irish Whip your opponent into the middle of the limo on the right. When they fall to their knees, hit their head against the window until it breaks. Then, get a finisher and Irish Whip them into it again they will fall to their knees. Press TRIANGLE when it appears. Rey will back up and do a 619. This will give you a K.O. if they are hurt enough. If not, do it until their head is red.

On the Road to the WWE Hall of Fame challenge for May 25, 2006, you are instructed to do the following: With any superstar, win the King Of The Ring tournament in Tournament mode under the Legend difficulty setting. These matches, even the first round,are pretty difficult for players. To do this easily, when you go to the screen before you play your match, there are four options: "Play", "Simulate", "Match Rules", and "Select Arena". Go to "Match Rules" and turn off DQ. You now can use weapons and will not be disqualified, making the tournament a lot easier.
-Take both ladders to entrance ramp all the way to the place where the superstars enter, then wait for the other superstars to go to you. Once they get there, hit them all with a ladder and run back with one ladder to get the briefcase. Note: Superstars only walk; they do not run. This trick also works in a Ladder match.
-Get both ladders and set one up under the briefcase/title while setting the other one diagonally. Run up the ladder that is set up diagonally while holding the Left and Right Analog-sticks. If done correctly, your superstar will grab the briefcase/title and both the ladders will fall.
-Create a superstar and duplicate him thirty times. Then, start GM mode and turn off every superstar while only leaving on the created superstar. The other two brands will be left with the CAW at 20 popularity. Turn on the superstars again in available draft the next week. When they become available, sign them to win the ratings easily.
-Send your superstars on trophy dates until their popularity reaches 100. Once it does, it almost always stays there and will only come down a point or two. When all your superstars are at 100, simply maintain the ones at 99, 98, etc. This will give you easy four star match ratings. Have as many rivalries as you can, and a couple weeks in you will get five star match ratings.

CHARACTER - HOW TO UNLOCK JBL - Get main eventer rank in main event mode for smackdown! Shane McMahon - Get main eventer rank in main event mode for raw. Vince McMahon - Get main eventer rank in main event mode for ECW.
To stack a table on top of another table in the matches with two tables, first set one up in the ring. Get the other one and walk towards the set up table and press A. Your character should set the table on top of the other, giving a special up and throwing your opponent against the table. Press triangle to take your opponent on the ropes and suplex him through the tables.
When starting WWE 24/7 mode, go on trophy dates as much as possible. This is the fastest and easiest way to earn popularity. Your salary is based on how popular you are, so get your popularity at 100 (or close to it) when your contract expires. The next week you will get your salary notification. Teddy Long or Coach will tell you that you now have a $1 million salary ($20,000 per week).
This hint only works if the Tag Team championship is vacant and you are playing RAW or SmackDown!. Do this if you want to make the Hardcore Triple Threat tag team match into a title match. When at the GM desk, select the CPU and go into "Options". Then, choose "Play Options" and turn "Title" off. Doing this will allow you to strip any champion of their belt or belts, therefore making the title vacant and you can choose a new holder. Strip the Tag Team champions of their belts. Then, put them in the Hardcore Triple Threat Tag match against any other two teams of your choice and make it for the Tag Team Championship. Next, go back and put the belts back on the superstars you just stripped the belts from and turn "Title" back on. The match will now be a Tag Team match and the champions will actually be entering with their belts on.
