    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.

    	hidden characteristics, with descriptions on how to get them.

    			   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

    			  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.
    	Power Skill +/- - Plus can be gotten in Royal Rumble by winning it. Minus seems based on
    			  a loss while using low-level moves.

    	(Character) +/- - These are totally random, based on who you fight, what you say 
    		          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.

    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.
