Wrestlers Unlocked Via Other Means  - Ric Flair, Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris

The only "other means" I can vouch for is you'll see a screen after a month has
been simmed with a pic of you at your desk. The text will ask you a Yes/No
question. Answer yes and your Match 5 will be against a mystery wrester (It's
not really a mystery cause they do name him, but I can't read japanese.
Answering Yes also negates the Random select, much like facing another
promotion in a PPV) If you beat this wrestler. He'll be added to your list of
selectable wrestlers in One Night Match. There are also "Style" titles that you
can win. The only one I know so far is the Showman Style title, which unlocks
Ric Flair. To earn this, play MoR as WCW and do your best to be successful.
Hopefully you'll unlock Flair (I don't know exactly how it works). I know there
are other Style titles, I know you can unlock The Sheik like this. But I
haven't been able to try it as of yet.

Unlocking the "Legendary 5" - Submitted by realrockyboy

Just play any organization and get a score like 8xxxxx, and a group named
"Legendary 5" (Rikidozan,Karl Gotch,Lou Thesz,Bruiser Brody, Andre the Giant)
will challenge you. It will be a 5-match show, one on one!!! Lou Thesz for
strong style, Bruiser Brody for hardcore, Andre the Giant for showman, Karl
Gotch for SHOOT FIGHTING, and Rikidozan for king's road. And to unlock them
all, you need to beat all of them and get a overall rating higher than 80%.

I've heard that there is a Second Legendary 5 in the game if you play as a
shoot fighting fed (Pancrase, RINGS and the hidden PRIDE). I've also hear that
this might just be K-1. Unfortunatly these guys are also hiddens.

1st Fighter: Mirko CroCOp Filipovich
2nd Fighter: Francisco Filho
3rd Fighter: Peter Aerts
4th Fighter: Jerome Le Banner
5th Fighter: Ernesto Hoost
