What's new in this version
--------------------------

0.7 - Completed characteristics listing, the first part of this FAQ to reach 100%, but far 
      from the last. Also filled in the credits, with 3 guys I couldn't have finished
      it without. Can ya believe I forgot to credit them in the last version?

0.6 - New characteristics section. Easy mode matches added. Some Normal mode gaps fixed.
      This FAQ seemingly is getting larger than expectation.

3) Getting Extra Abilities/Characteristics

	There are a ton of different characteristics to choose from when you create your
	character. But, a lot of them aren't available until you've unlocked them (by
	recieving them) in Pre-Season. The following is a fairly well-started list of 
	hidden characteristics, with descriptions on how to get them.

	Power Attack +/- - Seems to come from using high level power moves repeatedly in 
			   a match. Winning will get you a plus, normally, losing will give 
			   a minus.

			     a match. Winning will get you a plus, normally, losing will give 
			     a minus.

			   match. Winning will get you a plus, normally, losing will give 
			   a minus.

			   a match. Winning will get you a plus, normally, losing will give a

	Rough Def.  +/- - Seems to come from using high level rough moves repeatedly in a

		          to people during interactions, and the difficulty. They can be
			  earned through winning or losing a match, telling a person
			  thanks or shut up, and attacking or not attacking someone.

5) Credits and Notes:
---------------------

-- Jesse Estrada, for Hard Mode info

-- Matt Rodabaugh, for Easy Mode help

-- M.R. Lingwood, for filling a bunch of Normal Mode gaps.

-- Chris Roberts, Nik Johnson, and OlyXV, whom I couldn't have finished the 
   characteristics without. 

-- If I missed anyone, please let me know right away!

First off, I want to thank everyone that e-mailed me. The comments were all very positive, 
and I'm very glad I wrote this. As for why, I wrote this FAQ out of frustration that
there were no decent FAQ's explaining how to get Stephanie McMahon. Even after creating this
FAQ, I still have no clue what the game sites mean by "Stage 65/House Show ED8: Stephanie 
McMahon", so for all those who didn't understand either, I hope this helps. Comments are always 
appreciated. Also, this FAQ is GROSSLY incomplete, but due to the size of the storylines in 
Normal Mode alone, it's a daunting task to catalogue all the outcomes. If anyone wants to help,
just send me your pre-season details, preferably in the form I've already used, but a simple 
"Match 2, lost to Shane, faced Test in match 3" will do. Please do let me know the difficulty 
level you were playing at, of course. Thanks for any help to add to this FAQ on probably the
best wrestling game made thus far.
