[1]  I N T R O D U C T I O N

Welcome to the CAW Replacements FAQ for WWF No Mercy.  This is something I
did for WWF Wrestlemania 2000 for numerous websites, and it proved very
popular so I decided to do one for WWF No Mercy, however this time exclusive
for GameFAQS.

If you're wondering what this FAQ is about, let me explain.  There are numerous
create-a-wrestler websites and FAQs out there, all listing from 5 to over 100
wrestler templates.  However, as WWF No Mercy only has 18 slots, you can only
really create 18 wrestlers.

That's where this FAQ comes in.

Most wrestlers have very similar moves to other wrestlers.  Some just have a
trademark move that is shared with another wrestler.  In WWF No Mercy, each
wrestler has 4 "slots", at which they usually wear different outfits(ie: slot
#3 is usually a referees outfit).  However you can actually use those slots,
and edit the wrestlers appearance, name, entrance music, height, weight etc.

You can also use these slots to add in created wrestlers.

If you write down a list of a wrestlers trademark moves, and you look about
at the move lists in WWF No Mercy, you can usually find at least one wrestler
that has those moves, or variations of them.  Sometimes these can be very
close(ie: Christian has same front/back specials as BIlly Kidman would have),
to very vague(ie: Rikishi and Earthquake, because both are big, fat guys).

This FAQ will cover wrestlers, how they fit in over another wrestler, and
the reason(s) why.  If you have any of your own to submit, or any suggestions,
please send them to me at  I have over 300 to eventually
put in, so expect regular updates to this FAQ.  If I mention a wrestler
here who you don't know how to create, e-mail me and I will provide his
CAW to you either in this FAQ, or via e-mail.

Please read the "FAQ's" section of this FAQ(Section #5) before e-mailing me

Alex Wright
Slot: Kurt Angle - Slot #3.
Reason: One of Angles back moves are a German suplex, which Wright often
        uses.  Both of them use similar dancing moves, and their movesets
        are extremely similar.

Billy Kidman
Slot: Christian - Slot #2.
Reason: Both high-flyers.  Front special and back special are the same.
        Only flaw is that he won't have the shooting star press.  However,
        no other wrestlers in the game do have anyway.

Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake
Slot: Billy Gunn - Slot #2.
Reason: It's the only gimmick Ed Leslie hasn't used yet.  Har-de-har.
        No...Beefcake's finisher was the sleeper and Gunn uses that as
        a back strong grapple.

Slot: D-Lo Brown - Slot #3.
Reason: First off, they're tag team partners.  Second, their tag finisher
        was a superplex by Chaz, then a frog splash by D-Lo, and both
        these moves are in this moveset.  Also similar wrestling style.

Chris Candido
Slot: Chris Benoit - Slot #2.
Reason: Benoit has a top-rope powerbomb as corner special, which is
        basically the "Blond Bombshell".  Similar movelists.

Slot: Lita - Slot #2.
Reason: One of the only WCW female wrestlers with talent, plus
        the "screamerrana", or "frankenscreamer" or whatever you
        want to call it, makes her a perfect fit in Litas slot.

Diamond Dallas Page
Slot: Bubba Ray Dudley - Slot #3.
Reason: Bubba has all possible Diamond Cutters.  Only problem is
        no Diamond Cutter sign.  Ah well.
Slot: Steve Austin - Slot #2.
Reason: If you don't want to do this, feel free to not do it, however
        these two do match up well.  Disqo's finisher, The Last Dance,
        is the Stunner, and he also does the mudhole stomping, plus
        both move lists are extremely similar.

Slot: Bubba Ray Dudley - Slot #4.
Reason: Bubba has tiger bomb, which was Droz's finisher.

Slot: Andre The Giant - Slot #2.
Reason: Same high-flying, death-defying moves.  Also the running butt

Ernest "The Cat" Miller
Slot: Shawn Michaels - Slot #2.
Reason: Agility, dancelike taunts, and of course the Superkick(Feliner).
        Plus if Miller would ever actually wrestle anymore, you'd see
        him and HBK have similar movesets Miller used to use all the
        time on WCW Saturday Night.
Slot: Perry Saturn - Slot #2.
Reason: It's been awhile since Gangrels featured on TV.  However move lists
        are very similar, and back special is a tiger suplex pin, which
        Gangrel has recently used on WWF Jakked.

Slot: Faarooq - Slot #2.
Reason: Finishers and move lists are similar.

Kevin Nash
Slot: Undertaker - Slot #3.
Reason: Big boot, powerbomb as finisher, both lazy as hell.

Kid Kash
Slot: Eddie Guerrero - Slot #2.
Reason: Movelists are similar.  Guerrero and Cash have the same top-rope

Joey Abs
Slot: Shane McMahon - Slot #2.
Reason: Despite being an awesome wrestler, Jasons gimmick in the WWF rarely
        saw him do what he does best; WRESTLE.  Thus the Joey Abs gimmick
        is perfect for the slot of his one-time good buddy, and also rather
        poor wrestler(in this game), Shane McMahon.

Juventud Guerrera
Slot: TAKA Michinoku - Slot #4.
Reason: This was a tough choice.  I originally had him in Matt Hardy's slot #2
        due to the 450 splash being his top-rope special.  However the lack of
        a Juvi Driver really bugged me, and TAKA has that move(Michinoku Driver),
        plus the same high-flying type moves as Juvi.  The top-rope special is
        a back flip splash too, so I decided Juventud would be better in TAKAs
        slot #4.

Legion of Doom/The Road Warriors
Slots: Hawk   - Bubba Ray Dudley - Slot #2.
       Animal - D-Von Dudley     - Slot #2.
Reason: First off, they're a tag team.  Second, very powerful tag team,
        just as LOD were.  One of Hawks trademark moves was a neckbreaker,
        which Bubba has in his move list(also the 3/4 turn neckbreaker as
        front special).  Running moves are very similar.  Animal has the
        running shoulderblock, as does D-Von.  And finally....The Doomsday
        Device, which the Dudleys have, and which is LOD's trademark move.

Slot: Chyna - Slot #2.
Reason: Let's be honest; when Madusa returned under the Vince Russo regime in
        WCW, she was being made out as the new Chyna.  While both these females
        don't exactly have the movelists that would have Liger or Angle shaking
        in their boots, they do have similar power-moves mixed with some high-flying
        style, which makes them a perfect match for this game.

Major Gunns
Slot: Tori - Slot #2.
Reason: Blah.  Almost talentless females.  Next.

Mark Jindrak
Slot: Matt Hardy - Slot #2.
Reason: Mark and Sean O'Haire were basically a bigger version of the Hardy Boyz.
        With Sean in Jeffs slot, putting Mark in this slot seems natural.  Plus
        movelist, agility yada yada yada.

Slot: Ivory - Slot #3.
Reason: Blah.  Talentless females.  NEXT!

Miss Hancock
Slot: Terri - Slot #4.
Reason: Blah.  Talentless females.  NEXT!

Molly Holly
Slot: Crash Holly - Slot #2.
Reason: I love her.  Oh sorry...reasons why she should be in this slot?  Well first
        I'd like to propose marriage to her.  Hey I'm a 20 year old who makes
        game FAQs; who could resist me?  Anyway shes a good wrestler, and so's
        Crash.  He just isn't as sweet as her.  Awwwwww.

*cough*...moving on...

Mr. Perfect
Slot: Val Venis - Slot #2.
Reason: Move sets similar.  Front special is fishermans suplex(Perfect-Plex).
        Also one of standing striking moves is a dropkick, one of Mr. Perfects
        trademark moves.  Recommended to make this a favourite move.

Papa Shango
Slot: Godfather - Slot #3.
Reason: They're the same guy!  He even has Papas finisher!  Oh yeah toss Godfather
        in at #1, and Goodfather at #2 if they're not in there already.

Pete Gas
Slot: Shane McMahon - Slot #4.
Reason: A poor wrestler(at the time), it seems fitting to put him in the same
        slot as poor wrestler and one-time buddy and stable mate, Shane O-Mac.

Rey Misterio Jr
Slot: X-Pac - Slot #2.
Reason: Do I really need to explain this one?  Both high-flyers, both use the
        facebuster/X-Factor, broncobuster, huracarana(including top-rope
        huracarana).  The way Rey's gimmick has gone as of late, even the
        taunts are similar.  Almost a perfect match.

Slot: Big Boss Man - Slot #2.
Reason: Boss Man Slam and The Dirt Road Slam are the same.  Also body splash.
        No TKO/Barn Burner though.

Slot: Shane McMahon - Slot #3.
Reason: A poor wrestler(at the time), it seems fitting to put him in the same
        slot as poor wrestler and one-time buddy and stable mate, Shane O-Mac.

Slot: Matt Hardy - Slot #4.
Reason: Both crazy wrestlers.  Legdrop featured prominently.  Suicide dives etc.
        These fit perfectly in Wrestlemania 2000, and they do in WWF No Mercy too.

Scott Norton
Slot: Perry Saturn - Slot #3.
Reason: Has Nortons two key moves; snap powerbomb 2, and brainbuster.  Also
        a lot of power moves.  No super shoulderbreaker though.

Sean O'Haire
Slot: Jeff Hardy - Slot #2.
Reason: Despite being a wrestler of not very similar build, Seans wrestling style
        is more of a high-flyer, and Jeff also has the power moves that look great
        when doing with Sean.  And need I mention the Seanton/Swanton Bomb?

Sean Stasiak
Slot: Val Venis - Slot #3.
Reason: Similar movelists, plus good ol "PerfectShawn" was a direct rip-off of
        Mr. Perfect/Curt Hennig, who is in slot #2.

Slot: Undertaker - Slot #2.
Reason: Same type of wrestling.  Powerbombs as finisher; chokeslam; big boot.

Super Crazy
Slot: Essa Rios - Slot #3.
Reason: Cruiserweight movelist.  Moonsault, powerbomb, Rios Driver similar to Reverse

Slot: D-Lo Brown - Slot #3.
Reason: Former tag-partner Mosh is in #2(as Chaz), and their move lists were basically
        the same, so ta-da!

Slot: D-Von Dudley - Slot #3.
Reason: This was a tough one.  I ended up throwing it down to agility, and powerbomb
        as finisher.  Might still fit in the Goldberg/Mike Awesome/Rhyno slot

Slot: TAKA Michinoku - Slot #3.
Reason: Finishers are the same.  Also movesets extremely similar.

Slot: Rikishi - Slot #2.
Reason: Both Samoan(Yes, Yokozuna was) of similar build, plus the Banzai Drop.
        Bearhug, and other similar moves.


[4]  C A W   S L O T S   U S A G E

With only 18 slots to create wrestlers, you don't have too much room.  However,
if you can combine 4 wrestlers into each different CAW slot, then that's 72
different wrestlers you can create, not counting the ones you can add onto
exhisting wrestlers(section 3); meaning up to 72 wrestlers can have their
specific taunts and moves, as *you* want them.

Note: Any other trademarks for the below that I missed, feel free to suggest
      to me at and I'll add them in.

[5] C A W    W E B S I T E ' S

    Wanting to create some of the wrestlers in here, but don't know how?  Well
    I'd recommend just watching them on TV, or on a tape or whatever, or even
    finding a picture on the net and following from there.  But failing that,
    here is a list of CAW Websites/Message boards for you to check:

[6]  F A Q ' S

Q: How do I add...for example, Billy Kidman into Christians slot #2, and so on?

A: The steps:

     1. Start Up No Mercy.
     2. Enter the Smackdown Mall.
     3. Enter Superstar Options.
     4. Enter Edit A Superstar.
     5. (For this example) Locate Christian, and click C-> (C-Right) once.
     6. He should be wearing a different outfit, and it should say Type [2]
        at the bottom.  Hit "A" and you're free to edit his appearance,
        and profile/music, and from there you can enter Kidman.

Q: How do I create _______?

A: Up above, section #5.

Q: Can I put your FAQ on my site?

A: Yeah.  Just mail me the URL once it's up.

Sofa King Kool - Roadkill and Super Crazy suggestions.
TPEGrunge - Earthquake -> Andre.


[8]  E T   C E T E R A

Well that's it for this version of the FAQ.  Except updates whenever I get a
chance.  The reason I list the slot number for each wrestler is you can usually
fit more than one wrestler in that slot(ie: My Matt Hardy slot also has Mark Jindrak
as well as Sabu).  If you have any suggestions, please send them along to

Thanks for reading this FAQ, thanks to GameFAQs for publishing it, and stay tuned for the
next update!  Some more format changes are in store for the next update as well as a bunch
more wrasslers!

Note: Please do not steal this FAQ.  In the future it will become available for websites
to use, but as it's obviously a work in progress at the moment, I want to keep it at
one website until it's respectful enough to go out on other sites.  Thank you.
