    SVR06 is an extremely deep game with lots to see and do.  I will try my best to 
    cover everything, but as I am human, I am almost certain to leave something 
    out.  If you happen to see something missing from the FAQ, you can email me at

    SVR06's core gameplay is much like you have come to expect from the series.  It 
    is for the most part pretty solid.  Only slight selling issues from the enemy 
    AI really detract from the fun.  In layman's terms, your adversaries don't stay 
    down long enough.  This is particularly noticeable when using a character with 
    a top rope finisher like Rob Van Dam or the late Eddie Guerrero.  You have to 
    beat your foe to a pulp to even have a shot at nailing a Frog Splash, but 
    luckily there are some in-game sliders to counter this.
    
    Now that I've gotten that minor gripe out of the way, we can begin.

    HUD stands for Heads Up Display.  The HUD is located in the corners of the

    BREAKING DOWN THE HUD
    
     			0  <-------- This horrible excuse for ASCII is the
                           /|\           limb damage meter.  This meter keeps 
                           / \           track of damage sustained in four 
                                         sections of the superstars body: 
                                         Head, Body, Arms, and Legs.
    
             As the match goes on and you recieve more and more damage,
             each of the four sections will change colors depending on 
             how much damage you have recieved.  To break it down, the 
             colors and their respective amounts of damage are:
    
             Blue - No Damage
             Yellow - Minimal Damage
             Orange - Moderate Damage
             Red - Heavy Damage
    
                     [\\\\\(W)/////] <----- This is the Momentum Meter (it is,
                                            trust me :)).  This is the amount 
                                            of momentum your superstar currently
                                            holds.  When it is full, you can tap 
                                            L1 to unleash your finisher or L1 + L2 
                                            to store it for later.  There are many 
                                            different ways to build up your 
                                            momentum, depending on whether you are
                                            fighting clean or dirty.
    
             If you are fighting clean:
     
                      To build momentum
                      -----------------
                         - Perform signature moves
                         - Perform moves from the top turnbuckle (most effective)
                         - Perform a taunt
                         - Perform a move through the announcer's table
                         - Refuse to tap out with red limb damage
                         - Kick out after a 2 count
    
                      To lose momentum
                      -----------------
                         - Perform a dirty move
                         - Use a weapon 
                         - Attack your teammate
                         - Attack/argue with the ref
                         - Remove turnbuckle pad
    
              If you are fighting dirty:
     
                       To build momentum
                       -----------------
                         - Perform a dirty move
                         - Use a weapon 
                         - Attack your teammate
                         - Attack/argue with the ref
                         - Remove turnbuckle pad
                         - Break up your own pin after two count
    
                        To lose momentum
                        ----------------
                         - Perform a diving attack
                          
                          
                           STAMINA  <---------- This part of the HUD only appears
                         (---------)            when you press and hold the select
                                                button.  Doing so will refill your 
                                                stamina meter, which you need to 
                                                do to continue wrestling.

                               O================O
    
    Here are a few more gameplay topics in SVR06.
    
    /PLAYING POSSUM\
    
    Playing possum is a new addition to the Smackdown! franchise.  Basically, 
    playing possum is pretending to be injured to gain the upper hand on your 
    opponent and lure him into a small package.  You may see Kurt Angle do it a bit 
    to apply his Angle Lock. 
    
    TO PERFORM A POSSUM PIN hold the Circle button while down on the mat with a 
    stored finisher.  Then, when the opponent approaches, tap L2 to counter a 
    strike or R2 to counter a grapple.  If you guess correctly, you will perform 
    the possum pin.  If you guess wrong, you will lose your stored finisher.
    
    
    /PRE MATCH MINI GAMES\
    
    In one-on-one matches you will get the option to have a pre-match mini game. 
    If it is your choice, use the analog stick to select a game.
    
    Stare Down - Be the first to hit X when it appears on the screen.  If you hit 
                 it too early, the opponent will deflect your blow and knock you 
                 down.

    weight classes:
    
    Ultra Heavyweight (Andre the Giant)
    Super Heavyweight (Big Show, The Undertaker)
    Heavyweight (Triple H, Kurt Angle)
    Light Heavyweight (Chris Jericho, Booker T)
    Cruiserweight (Rey Mysterio, Rob Van Dam)
    Diva (Trish Stratus, Torrie Wilson)
    
    These weight classes are important because they effect in game grapples.  
    While Andre, as the the games only Ultra Heavyweight, and the other Super 
    Heavyweights can lift anyone, the other weight classes recieve restrictions.
    
    Heavyweights CAN'T LIFT Ultra Heavyweights
    Light Heavyweights CAN'T LIFT Ultra Heavyweights, Super Heavyweights
    Divas CAN'T LIFT Ultra Heavyweights, Super Heavyweights, Heavyweights

    under and throw them out of the ring to bypass the Royal Rumble meter.

    | Is there any way to unlock Jake "The Snake" Roberts without using the | 
    | PSP version of the game?                                              |
    |                                                                       |
    | Outside of using a cheat device, no.                                  |

    | What characters have specific season mode storylines?                 |
    |                                                                       | 
    | None really have specific storylines.  THQ just used the term to      |
    | glorify certain storylines like ECW, which is specifically a          |
    | storyline of Rob Van Dam, not what you and I thought they meant.      |
