WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009 Guide by The Smoking Ace
Hey folks this is The Smoking Ace. Thanks for taking the time to check out my guide for Smackdown vs Raw 2009 for the Xbox 360. This is my first guide and I hope that you all find it to be very,very helpful. This guide is exclusvely for XBOX360achievements.org If you wish to post this on another website please give me proper notification/permission first so I can decide if I want to give the okay or not.
It's really not fair to give a rough estimate on how long it will take to unlock all of these achievements because it all depends on the individual's skill but with free time invested and patience all achievements can be obtained within 2-4 days max
There are a total of 18 achievements for this year's title and are easily obtainable with just putting in a little bit of work. By using this guide getting them all should be no problems. So without any more delay here's the guide. Enjoy!
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/-X5RFw==.jpgCongrats are in order 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
This achievement you can obtain just from going into exhibition mode on the main menu and selecing any type of match to play and win.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/-19Yog==.jpgSmokin' 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Defeat Kane in an Inferno Match.
This is a very fun match as I'm sure you'll find it to be as well. The object of this match is to set your opponet on fire. The key to victory is to do as much damage to the limbs as much as possible until you feel there is no way your opponent will be able to escape his fate of defeat. Personally I like to damage to my opponent's limbs until they are red that way I know the match is going to be over with. When you feel you've done enough damage get them into a standing lock up position and drag them to the ropes to set them on fire. You can get into the lockup position I mentioned by holding on the RB and moving the RS up and you'll see the wrestlers go into a lockup position. Drag the opponet to the ropes by moving the LS into the direction you want to go in. This is how you beat Kane in the Inferno Match
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/-r+gMQ==.jpgCreate A Finisher 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Defeat an opponent using a Created Finisher in a match.
One of the best features about this game is the ability to create your own finishers and use it on your opponents. You can access the create a finisher feature from the main menu and then selecting create modes and it'll be the first thing you see afterwards. It is not complicated at all using and tons of fun so feel free to spend some time creating a finisher and once you're done and you've saved your finisher, you can apply it to your WWE superstar or CAW by selecting create a moveset and under specials. Once applied go on to do a match in exhibition and defeat your opponent using the created finisher.
The Next section covers The Road To Wrestlemania Mode. There is a total of six diffrent wrestlers you can choose to play as ( Triple H,Undertaker,CM punk,Batista w/Rey Mysterio and Chris Jericho). Each wrestler has a unique storyline and can be completed respectfully in under 90 minutes, possibly less.
Cena Story 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Complete Cena's story in Road to WrestleMania mode.
You can choose Cena by picking him in the The Road to Wrestlemania Mode. From there just finish out his story to unlock the Cena Story achievement. Also be sure to pay attention to any white notice slips in the locker room giving you a specific optional task which if you can complete you'll get a bonus.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/+EVDIQ==.jpgChris Jericho Story 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Complete Chris Jericho's story in Road to WrestleMania mode.
Just complete Jericho's Road To Wrestlemania story and you'll get this achievement. Also be sure to pay attention to any white notice slips in the locker room giving you a specific optional task which if you can complete you'll get a bonus.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/+-uu4A==.jpgUndertaker Story 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Complete Undertaker's story in Road to WrestleMania mode.
Complete Undertaker's Rode To Wrestlemania storyline and be sure to pay attention to any white notice slips in the locker room giving you a specific optional task which if you can complete you'll get a bonus.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/+mRKlA==.jpgMysterio & Batista Story 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Complete Mysterio & Batista's story in Road to WrestleMania mode using both Superstars.
To just unlock this achievement I reccomend playing as Batista only and win every match playing as him. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled once it's week 12 and stop saving. You'll know you're at the right point when Batista and Rey Mysterio have to face off against The Brothers of Destruction, Kane and The Undertaker just before Batista and Rey face off 1 on 1 at Wrestlemania. From there just move on to Wrestlemania (again be sure to not save but continue on with the story mode) and win the title from Rey Mysterio. Once you've completed Batista's storyline you'll automatically be kicked back to the main menu after the auto save feature kicks in (unless you disabled that feature), select Road to Wrestlemania again and load up week 12 only this time playing as Rey Mysterio finish the Road to Wrestlemania storyline and upon completion of Rey's storyline you'll get a message that reads: Result: Success-Mysterio & Batista scenario is completed. When all this is done you'll only be missing two more unlockables which I'll cover later on in this guide under the achievement called Bonus Collector but you'll be able to get them really fast I promise
11-23-2008, 02:17 PM
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/+htWcw==.jpgTriple H Story 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Complete Triple H's DX and Evolution route in Road to WrestleMania mode.
In order to get this achievement Triple H needs to complete 2 storylines, The DX storyline and the Evolution storyline. You wil have the opportunity to chose which story arc you want to do as of the No Way out ppv as Triple H will be the guest referee for a match between Shawn Michaels and Randy Orton. If you decide to have Shawn win then Triple H will be going the DX route. If you decide to have Randy Orton win then you'll be taking the Evolution route. Make a game save before you referee the match so that after you complete the story arc you decide to go with you can just reload it and go with the other story arc.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/-iZZ-g==.jpgBonus Collector 150 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Obtain all bonuses in Road to WrestleMania mode.
With each wrestler you select for the Road to Wrestlemania mode, you'll gain the opportunity to unlock certain unlockables. Here's a list that I was able to make and major thanks to my wife for playing this game with me & helping me make notes of the unlockables:
RTW Bonus Unlockables
CAS Moveset #1 & 2
I chose to play as as a single player with Batista in Road to Wrestlemania and then win the Royal Rumble. From there go on winning matches. After you've won the tag belts from Miz & Morrison make sure that come the No Way Out ppv you have a 2nd controler handy. I can't stress this enough because it will be near impossible to have Rey lose to Edge at the ppv and a 2nd controler will save you a lot of time and effort. Once you get to the No Way Out ppv save your status and back all the way out till you get to the main menu. From there load up that same game file only this time bring in the 2nd controler. With the first controler select Rey Mysterio and with the 2nd controler select Batista. Now have Rey Mysterio lose his match against Edge. One the very next edition of Smackdown Rey & Batista will have to face Kane & The Undertaker with your tag titles on the line. Be sure to win that match. Afterwards save the game file ( If you want you can now overwrite the No Way Out save file but be sure to save).Then the very next week of Smackdown you'll have to face Miz & Morrision for your tag tiles. You should still be controling Batista & Mysterio. You'll get a cutscene with Rey and Batista talking about how their partnership needs to end. Once the cutscene is over you'll be taken to your locker room where you'll see a white note. The note basically is telling you to lose the tag titles match. Have Rey Mysterio loose the tag belts to Miz & Morrison to unlock CAS move presets Set 1. Once you've unlocked it save your status in a diffrent slot. Remember the previous save you did earlier right before you had the actual match with Miz & Morrison? Well load that up and this time have Batista lose to Miz & Morrison to unlock CAS move presets Set2. It's that easy and the fastest way to get them in a shorter amount of time.
Hawkins & Ryder ( They were part of Edge's stable earlier this year) Right after Edge spears Batista at the end of the Smacdown team vs Raw team match ( and you've helped Edge and your brand pick up the win), Edge will spear Batista. The very next week on Smackdown right before your match against Edge and Big Daddy V, you'll come across a white note in the locker room basically telling you to make sure you've speared Edge twice. You can either use Batista's signature spear or just go into create a moveset and change the running strike to a spear rather than have the shoulderblock and/or clothesline this way you can spear Edge quicker and look good really doing it. Make sure to win the match and you'll unlock Hawkins & Ryder
Saturday Nights Main Event Arena
I reccomend having a backup save file handy. Make sure that you're playing as Batista and that you're winning your matches. Don't worry about Rey Mysterio as the computer will make sure he wins but just to be safe make sure you ahve a 2nd controler handy in case you may need it. Eventually Batista and Mysterio will have to take on Miz,Morrison and The Great Khali in a 2 on 3 tag match. Before the match you should see a note in the locker room telling you to make sure you give a finisher to each of the three wrestlers. Successfully doing so as well as winning the match will unlock the SNME arena.
Vince McMahon aka Mr. McMahon
Just play as Rey Mysterio or Batista and complete the RTW. I reccomend playing as Batista so you can get through all the matches and obtain the bonuses quicker.
Tribute to the Troops Arena Successfully make MVP submit. This can be done at The Tribute to the troops show. You should come across a note in your locker room saying that you need to look really good in front of the crowd and to make sure you make MVP tap out.
Tony (John Cena's military friend) At one point during John Cena's RTW you'll have a match against William Regal and Umaga ( Umanga as William Regal likes to call him). Before your match you should come across a white note in your locker room which saids to make sure you give an FU finisher to Regal & Umaga. Successfully fullfill this and win your match to unlock Cena's military friend.
Gene Snitsky Week 11 of Raw you'll have to interfere in a match involving MVP. You'll only have a certain amount of time so try to do as much damage to MVP's head to make him bleed before he makes a run out of the arena. Successfully doing so will unlock Snitsky
Gauntlet Match In week 12 of John Cena's RTW you'll have to face Mr. Kennedy. He'll say something to the effect of he needs to conserve his strength,beat kennedy as fast as possible in 2 minutes or less. Be successful and this is how you unlock the Gauntlet Match
John Cena & Tony's Military Vehicle entrance
Just Complete John Cena's RTW to unlock this really cool entrance
WCW Brand & Title
In the 3rd week of Raw you'll have a match with Finaly. Be sure to beat him and you'll unlock this
Chris Jericho's Alternate Attire aka classic Jericho - As you're going down the list of suspects be sure to question Jeff Hardy. When you do Shane McMahon will put the two of you in a match against eachother. Before the match starts and while in your locker room you'll get a note that saids there's no way that Jeff could be in on the scheme and to take it easy on him by not using a finisher on him at all. Successfully doing this and picking up the win will unlock the classic Chris Jericho skin
Generic Code entrance video for Create an Entrance
One the final Raw before the Wrestlemania ppv you'll have to face Ken Kennedy. If you are not having a match against Kennedy on the final Raw before Wrestlemania it may be because you selected Randy Orton as the masked man way too early. The first time I played this I didn't get Kennedy as being part of the masked men ebcause I accused Orton very early on and called him out. The 2nd time I played I made Orton the very last suspect but before I could do a follow up interrogation it was too late and I was attacked by Orton & Kennedy dressed as masked men so just a heads up in advance. Be sure to make him bleed and you'll unlock the generic code entrance. I missed this the first time I played as Jericho but hopefully I saved some of you the trouble of needing to play as him again to unlock this video
Masked Man ( Person who attacks Jericho) Just complete Jericho's Road to Wrestlemania and you'll unlock this
11-23-2008, 02:18 PM
Locker Room Backstage Brawl
Keep your eyes peeled for a triple threat match involving John Morrison as its the only triple threat match involving him and you. Right before the match you'll get a note in your locker room where CM Punk expresses that he needs to score a pinfall of Morrison so be sure to score a pinfall on him and you'll unlock the Locker Room Backstage brawl.
CM Punk's Attire B Put Elijah Burke through a table in a match. No way you can miss this one as it progresses the story.
At the No Way Out ppv you'll have to face Big Daddy V. Before the match you should see a note in the locker room stating to try and beat Big Daddy V as fast as possible (2:30 to be exact). Successfully defeat Big Daddy V within the time allowed to unlock the lovely diva,
Tazz (ECW Orignial)Successfully complete Punk's Road to Wrestlemania and you'll unlock Tazz
Remaining CAW movesets The very first match Triple H has on Raw ( Week 1 ) is against Edge. You'll get a note in your locker room saying to make sure you pin him. Doing so will unlock the remaining CAW movesets
Jillian Hall ( The really,brutal singer/diva) In the 3rd week of Raw HHH will be involved in a tag match. There will be a note waiting for you in the locker room before your match giving you an optional goal. Be sure to fullfill it and most importantly win the match and you'll unlock Ms.Hall
***At one point before the No Way Out ppv it is revealed that Triple H is going to be the guest referee for Randy Orton against Shawn Michaels. You'll have to decide if you're going to go down the Evoultion storyline or the DX storyline. I reccomend saving at the No Way Out ppv and avoid overwriting it so that you can reload it once you're done with the first storyline you chose. It is okay to create a new save in any other slot but don't overwrite the No Way Out game save. I will start off with the remaining unlockables if you go with the Evoultion Storyline
Evoultion entrance,music,video Week 12 on Raw Triple H will have a match against Batista. In the locker room before your match you'll find a note triple h left for himself saying that he needs to conserve his energy and beat Batista in under 2 and a half minutes. Beating Batista in the time allowed will unlock the Evolution package
Ric flair At Wrestlemania there will be a triple threat match. Be sure to win it and you'll unlock The Nature Boy... Woooooooooo!!!
Under DX Storyline
DX entrance,music,video,animation 13 days before wrestlemania on Raw HHH will have a match against Randy Orton. Before the match you'll see a note in the locker room with an optional goal. The optional goal saids for you to give Orton the pedigree three times. Doing so and winning the match will unlock the DX entrance,music,video and animation
DX Outfits After beating Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania you'll unlock the DX outfits. HBK and HHH will now have a 2nd outfit option when you select them for matches
Hornswoggle (Not playable/only available as manager) Week 2 on Smackdown you'll have to face Finlay. Before your match you'll get a note in your locker room with an optional goal. The optional goal reads for you to beat Finlay in a certain amount of time. Doing so will unlock Hornswoggle
Brothers of Destruction Entrance With just 30 days to go until Wrestlemania you'll have a match against Finlay. Before the match you'll come across a note in the locker room which gives you an optional goal. The goal is to make Finlay bleed during the match. Successfully doing so as well as picking up the win will help you unlock the Brothers of Destruction entrance
*** Just 1 week after getting the Brothers of Destruction entrance ( 23 days until Wrestlemania ) you'll have to chose between Finlay and Santino for a ladder match with The Undertaker's urn as the prize. Once the match is over Undertaker will transfer the power inside the urn and place it into the wreslter you chose to fight against in the ladder match. Once you have chosen which of the two you want to face in the ladder match make note that from that point on they will be under your control as they will become a zombie. I reccomend saving after you won your match at No Way Out and saving in a diffrent slot so that once you have obtained the zombie skin for one wrestler, you can just reload the save after you won your match at the No Way Out ppv and then go for the other zombie skin. Both skins can be obtained on Smackdown 9 days before the ppv.
Finlay Zombie Help Rey Mysterio beat Zombie Finlay in his match on the episode of Smackdown 9 days before Wrestlemania
Santino Zombie Help Rey Mysterio beat Zombie Finlay in his match on the episode of Smackdown 9 days before Wrestlemania
The Boogeyman Successfully clear Undertaker's Road to Wrestlemania stroyline and you'll unlock him
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/+v2zWw==.jpgA brawl to end them all 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Win in both a Locker Room Brawl and Backstage Brawl.
If you remember playing as CM Punk in the Road to Wrestlemania mode you'll remember that one of the unlockables obtained is the Locker Room brawl that now becomes available in exhibition matches ( 1 on 1 only ). So once you've unlocked it go and play against the CPU and you'll unlock this without any problems
11-23-2008, 02:19 PM
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/UPuCsiA=.jpgA year in the life 100 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Complete 1 year of Career Mode playing each match.
A lot of people have expressed to me difficulty of getting this one. Make sure that you are not going for a title but instead just keep playing regular matches on one brand. The computer automatically skips weeks when you're trying to play a championship match which can hurt those of you trying to ge this achievement so just make sure to stay fighting the same wrestler on 1 brand and loose to them 54 times by DQ to help get this achievement quicker. You may get the disqualification but it'll still count towards this achievement so for each match grab a wepon and start swinging and there should be no problems obtaining this achievement.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/-eeo2A==.jpgGold Rush 60 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg In Career mode, win every WWE Championship at least once.
You will need to accumulate x amount of points in order to qualify for the respected title & you'll be able to choose who you want to face. Your stats will go up depending on what all you did during the match so be sure to mix it up a little. This can be a bit time consuming but eventually you'll win every title in career mode. You don't have to worry about storylines or anything hidden. Just pick your opponents,win,build up your stats,get the title,etc. Once you win the respected title you can choose which title you want to go for next as a new title path will be unlocked and you'll be transfered to that path. Be sure to also play as a diva/female wrestler so that you can compete for the women's title and defend it as well as it also goes towards this achievement. You also need to defend the titles you obtain as well which will help set u up for the 5 Hall of Famers 100 achievement which I cover later in this guide.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/UPpiSrM=.jpgUnstoppable 60 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Use a created Superstar and obtain 6 abilities in Career Mode.
Easy way of getting this achievement is by going for the following abilites. I list them below and give a description on how to obtain them. Also I can't stress enough to disable the auto save feature so that in case you get a ability you don't want you can just go reload the game data again and try to get the abilites you want then settle on ones you don't want.
Fan Favorite: Just taunt your opponent 10 times in a match. Your taunts must be successful and stealing your opponents taunt doesn't count
Cage Match: Successfully win a cage match in under a minute by escaping. If you find that you might be having problems with this one be sure to lower the game difficulty and there should be no problems
Submission: Do 7 SS submissions in one match and win the match. It doesn't matter if your opponent breaks out of them. Just be sure to do 7 of them and then be sure to pick up the win to get this
Referee Shield: With a heel wrestler get a total of 5 Disqualification loses and then win a championship match against a clean wrestler
Lock Pick: Go against Chris Jericho and successfully escape his finisher, Walls of Jericho.
Outside Dives: Perform 25 dives throughout your career. Just setup a No DQ match and make sure to change the game difficulty to easy and proceed to beat up the CPU to the point where their entire body is in red. From there take them out of the ring and make sure to perform a grapple move where they will be on the ground for a while giving you enough time to perfrom a outside dive from the turnbuckle. Rinse and repeat and you can get this in 1 match with ease. Be sure to have a pen and paper handy so you can keep track
If you would like to gain other abilites for your wrestlers here's a list:
K.O.: Earn a "5 Star" rank against every wrestler in a title path, not including the title match.
Dirty Pin: Recieve a "5 Star" rank against 3 different wrestlers who have this ability.
Durability: Beat a wrestler that has a 20 point higher overall while both have orange damage.
Evasive Dodge: Win a special match against 2 opponents.
Hammer Throw: Earn a ability within your first 10 career matches, then get the "Sit In The Corner" award.
Kip-up: Win 6 titles.
Ladder Match: Get a 5 Star"ranked Ladder match against jeffy hardy or matt hardy
Move Theft: Beat 20 diffrent superstars
Object Specialist: Perform 50 object attacks throughout your career.
Springboard: Win the Cruiserweight titleSteal Taunt: Foil your opponent's attempt to steal your taunt (cannot have Fan Fave ability).
Bloodshed: Make your opponents bleed 10 times & bleed yourself ten times
Table Match: Break a total of 40 tables throughout your career ( this includes the announcer's tables).
Resiliency: Kick out of a pin at "2" while having two parts of the body damage in red
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/UPhDQwY=.jpg5 Hall of Famers 100 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg In Career mode, induct 5 Superstars to the Hall of Fame.
Just play with five diffrent people throughout career mode and have each of them respectively wining all the titles as well as defending the titles and they'll be inducted into the HOF. You don't need to get ever single title, I reccomend setting yourself up to get the Hardcore title,ECW title,Intercontential title,WWE title, and you should be able to start defending one of those belts. Just defend one of them 3 times and you'll get a pop up message saying you are a legend and a member of the hall of fame, rinse and repeat and you'll get this achievement in no time.
*Turn off entrances,DQ,countout,ropebreak to save time
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/s3.jpgThe end of the road 200 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Complete Road to WrestleMania mode using each selectable Superstar.
If you have played with all six wrestlers in the Road to Wrestlemania mode and completed their respected storylines (Batista w/ Rey Mysterio,Chris Jericho,Undertaker,CM Punk,Triple H,John Cena) then you'll get unlock this achievement. Be sure to read above for getting 100% completion of Triple H and Batista w/ Rey Mysterio storyline for tips
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/s1.jpgLights,Camera,Action! 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Create at least 1 original WWE highlight reel.
This one is easily obtainable without needing to get in depth into the highlight reel. To make an original WWE highlight reel all you need to do is push the start button to pause the game. From there you will see a list on the right hand side and towards the bottom you'll see Highlight Reel option. Click on it and read the menu options so that you know which one is for save. Save the clip and back out to continue with the match as you just need one clip. Once you do have a clip you can always quit the match you're in or finish it if you'd like but in any case just look for the main menu of the game and click on My WWE which will lead you to the Highlight Reel option. Click on new and it will take you to your storage device. Once its loaded select the add video clip and again you'll be taken to your storage device,select your clip and just hit complete. you don't need to create a cover desgin at the cover design menu so just go all the way down to save and exit,enter the name for your dvd and that's it, achievement unlocked.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/s2.jpgHot Tag 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Perform a hot tag in a tag team match and win.
Anytime that you are in a tag match and you are the illegal tag partner outside the ring, you can move the D-pad up and down to begin building a hot tag. If the computer/ actual player performs the hot tag you will see a cutscene and a mini game that you can play where you have to hit the correct buttons that show up on the screen. If you are the legal partner in the ring and your team has build up its hot tag meter ( found in the upper corner of the screen. It will be in flames if you've build up the momentum) then all you have to do is perform the hot tag by pressing RB +Y
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/680/s4.jpg5 Stars 60 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg In Career mode, Obtain a 5-Star match rating
For this I reccomend turning off DQ so that you'll be able to use weapons,and spend a good 10-12 minutes beating up the CPU,use everything in your arsenel and when 10-12 minutes is up go for the pin and you should have received a 5 star rating for your match. It helps if you ahve some good music playing on your headphones to make you kind of forget about the time as you're going for this achievement but you should be able to get this off the break
Well I hope you all found this guide helpful and please if you have any questions or want to bring something to my attention of my guide that needs to be updated feel free to let me know and in the meantime keep laying the smackdown!

A lot of people have been having problems obtaining some key abilities in career mode. Well today is your lucky day because I'm going to break them down for you. Something that really and rarely has not been done. This is from my own notes from playing this game and I've tried to take the easiest route to get the abilites quick. I reccomend getting the abilites first before focusing on leveling up your caws because it's much easier to do so. Without further delay here's a breakdown of all abilities:
Dirty Pin-This ability allows you to put your feet up on the ropes when going for a pin as long as you are going for the pin while close to the ropes
How to get this-Just earn 5 stars max in your match against 3 wrestlers that have this ability. You don't have to edit the roster so the wrestlers who have this abilit are on the same brand as you are on. As you proceed through career mode just keep on the lookout and when you come across a wrestler with this ability put on a great match and the rest will follow.
Evasive Dodge- Allows you to avoid grapple/attacks by rolling pass them
How to get this- Just win any type of a special match against Jimmy Yang, Jeff Hardy or 619 Rey Mysterio. Once you've unlocked Table,ECW Extreme Rules,Steel Cage mathces just seltect any one and take these wrestlers out 1 by 1 and you'll get this ability
K.O- This allows you to knock out your opponent with your finisher so long as they have obtained red limb damage
How to get this- Earn 5 star matches in every single match of a title path minus the champion. This really isn't that hard. I reccomend having a pattern when wrestling each opponent for example 5 SS submission moves, chair shots till your smackdown meter builds completly,etc. Get a nice groove going and take your time and in about 10-15 minutes you'll have earned a 5 star rating for your match. Rinse and repeat and this ability is yours
Lock Pick- Instantly breaks SS ( aka Struggle Submission ) holds
How to get this- Face Y2J Chris Jericho in a singles match and escape his Walls of Jericho finisher. Sounds pretty hard, right? This is really all about luck and also having decent durability and submission so that you can escape his finisher. If you haven't edited the roster then usually Jericho is one of the last men you face in the one of the final 2 title paths, the WWE title and the Heavyweight title. Just allow the CPU controlled Jericho to beat you up so he can get his finisher early on and slap it on you and try your best to escae it. If you're not able to just push the pause button and restart the match until you escape it and once you do win the match. Oh and be sure that the singles match has DQ,count out turned off so you can go for weapons after you escape the Walls of Jericho so you can hurry and end the match quicker
Table Match-Allows you to match tables
How to get this- Break a total of 40 tables throughout your career (announce tables count). If you start early on and break the two announcer tables in your matches this will help towards getting this ability. If you still don't have the ability by the time you've unlocked the special tables match you should be able to getit fairly quickly in no time
Referee Shield- You can shove the ref into your opponent
How to get this- Accumalate 5 Disqualifications ( aka DQ ),losses, then win a championship match against a clean wrestler. This is really easy to get and needs no further breakdown so I'll move on to the next one
Move Theft-Allows you to steal your opponents finisher or signature move
How to get this-Just defeat 20 different supserstars. If you want this ability just make sure you have a free slot available and beat every single wrestler in a title path,then the champion, that's 5 people in one title path. Upon completing your 4th title path you should unlock this ability
Steal Taunt-You can steal your opponent's taunt
How to get this-The main reason as to why I'm making this because a lot of people including myself experienced difficult getting this ability but I discovered that it's easy. First off let the controled CPU beat you up to begin the match and keep letting them attack you till their meter fills then run away from them. Watch to see if the CPU tries to steal your taunt while their meter is filled. If they don't and the full meter disappears just restart the match till you get the ability but it's easy to obtain
Hammer Throw-Stronger version of the irish whip
How to get this-Get a ability in the first 10 career matches, then get the Sit in the Corner award. You get the sit in the corner award for irish whipping your opponent into a corner ten times
Object-Enables object grapples
How to get this-Complete a total of 50 attacks with objects aka weapons. Very easy to get so I'll move on to the next ability
Resiliency-Increased kick-out ability
How to get this-Getting the resiliency attribute requires some time so do not attempt this if you can't spare this and most importantly you need patience. Now that that is out the way here is some key notes to make for getting this. Keep in mind i just got this attribute so this is 100% accurate
***Make sure your caw's attributes are in the mid to late 70's ( A must for durabilty,strength,speed ). by default your stamina and tech should be a bit higher than the rest, charisma and hardcore doesn't really matter. In my case I had a caw with an overall of 83, the stats were as followed:
I am not suggesting to follow these stats exactly,this is just giving you an idea of where my caw attributes were and i got the resililiency ability.
***You want to make sure you face a wrestler that has a lower overall than you and is weaker in strength & durability.
***When you start a match make sure that DQ,KO,Submission,Ring Count is off. Entrance is optional but to save on more time I reccomend turning it off.
***Make sure that when the match starts you allow the CPU controlled opponent to beat you up but watch their meter. Watch the CPU's meter build till its close to getting a smackdown finisher,you want to intercept the CPU before its meter is full. As you're attacking focus on building your meter and save a signature move and don't waste it,then continue attacking the CPU until your meter is almost full again then let the CPU attack you again. When the CPU is close to getting a finisher,start attacking them again and doing your finishers but not signature moves as you should always have a signature stored. You're basically setting the CPU to attack you and get whatever 2 body parts in red. Once the CPU gets 2 of your body parts in red get back on defense and start attacking them till your meter is full then stop attacking them. If they are on the ground be sure to pick them up as your full white flashing meter will expire shortly. Let the CPU attack you and they should try to set you up for a pin. When they do pin you,mash down on 2 buttons, this combined with your full white flashing meter will automatically help you kick out of the pin. I was able to kick out 3-4 times back to back doing this.
How to get this-Defeat a superstar with a overall rating 20 points higher than you while both having orange limb damage. It's okay if if you,the cpu have as 2nd,3rd limb a diffrent color so long as you both have orange damage as you're going for the pin
Bloodshed-Hardcore Resurrection-Using blood to recover your health
How to get this-Make yourself bleed 10 times and make our opponents bleed 10 times. Yes I know it sounds hard and it is kind of hard. I don't reccomend going for this early on but instead when you're about to go for the WWE title or World Heavyweight title as by then you should have high stamina and durability. Once you have those I reccomend doing a extreme rules match and just lure the cpu outside the ring and just proceed to do your part to make them bleed and then once you do let the cpu beat you up but never successfully putting you back in the ring so they can get the 1-2-3 on you. Once they've made you bleed end the match asap, rinse & repeat and you'll get this ability in no time
Kip-Up-Temporary damage recovery
How to get this-Win 6 championships. This doesn't need any further breakdown so I'll move on
Fan Favorite-Special taunt that lowers opponent's momentum
How to get this- You can't have the steal taunt ability and in 1 match you must successfully taunt 10 times to get this ability
12-07-2008, 11:31 AM
Ladder Match-Enables special ladder match actions
How to get this- Earn a 5 star rating in a ladder match against Jeff or Matt Hardy. No further breakdown needed so I'll continue on
Cage Match-Increases cage match actions,helps get out cage quicker
How to get this-Escape the cage in under a minute. Best tips I can give you for this is do midsection grapple damage to your opponent and irish whip them to a corner on the other side of the ring and try escaping the cage. I also reccomend going for this ability later on when you have built up more strength
Outside Dives-Dive onto an ut-of-ring opponent
How to get this-Complete a total of 25 dives ( outside dives count as well folks ), in career mode. It may sound like a lot but you can do all 25 dives in one match if you want
Springboard-Enables springboard attacks to in-ring opponent
How to get this-Just win the cruiserweight title. Yep, that's all so I'll move on to the next ability
Submission-Opponents can tap to non-finisher submission moves
How to get this-In one match do a total of 7 SS sumbmission moves ( It's okay if your opponent doesn't tap out or breaks the hold,just make the attempts ).
Possum Pin-A sneaky,pinfall, catching your opponent by surprise
How to get this- Defeat 3 other wrestlers who have the possum pin ability.
That's all folks. I hope this helps as on so many forums people only list the abilites but give no details as to how to exactly get some of these abilites as some are difficult to obtain. Overall I reccomend making a list of what abilites you want to give your caw and then when you're sure what abilites you want, start career mode. This way you know what abilites you need and which ones to dodge. Also disable the auto save feature so that you can save manually. If you get a ability you don't want do not save, just back all the way out pass the main menu to the SvR 09 title screen and reload your data again so you can get the abilites you need. Well I hope this helps and sorry for the delay in this but I had to learn first hand about the abilites and how to get them but this offically completes my SvR 2009 guide. Happy Gamming!!!
