Greetings. This guide is designed to help you through
the challenge mode in Smackdown vs Raw 2006.  Legend
and Superstar have to be unlocked though.  But follow the
guide and it shouild be easy.  The controls are pretty much the same as the
PS2 version so if this gets confusing, refer to that.



Please note that the first superstar I list is the guy you are supposed to use
in the challenge.  

Stuff to get fixed

1) People have been complaining about challenges not 
completing.  I would imagine this is because either 

 It has completed but not said

Or you have not loaded your profile correctly.  Either way, I shall
look into it.

Contact kenkennedykennedy@yahoo.co.uk if you have
any questions whatsoever.  But do not send me any attachments unless
they are of you playing the game.  And only then can you send me them
if you are having trouble, such as a bug or something.

__________________________________________________________________

1) Amateur

Difficulty: Easy

Rewards: $1000

__________________________________________________________________



1.1)

Reverse 10 Strikes

Superstar: Any

Match: Any

Reverse 10 strikes in a match

Strategy: Pick someone with good technique, like Angle, and play against 
Tajiri to get it done easily.  If you wish you could try and get the 10 
Grapples done as well.   Remember, it is L to reverse a strike.  Reversing
requires precision.  It is easier with the grapples.  But for the Strikes, as
soon as you see them move their foot or hand, press L.

__________________________________________________________________

1.2)

Match: Any

Superstars: Single

Reverse 10 Grapples

Same as 10 Strikes, but instead of Tajiri, pick Cena.   This one is relatively
easy, just be sure to reverse a lot. It is R to Reverse a Grapple.  My best
advice is to wait 2 seconds while they are grappling you, then press R and it
will reverse whatever they attempt.
__________________________________________________________________

1.3)

Double team challenge

Match: Any tag format match

Superstars: Any

Perform 3 Double team moves in a match

Quite easy, do it in tag match, and do corner grapples.  It is a whole lot
easier to use people who have good tag team attributes, such as La Resistance
or The Bashams.  Irish whip the opponent into your corner, then press Circle
and a Direction to do a double team move.

__________________________________________________________________
1.4)

Perform 3 Finishers

Match: Single

Superstars: Any one

Easy enough, just get 3 finishers as anyone to beat it. It will take some work
but after the second finisher, they should be easy prey.  Pick a clean guy,
as their aerial moves can get up their finishers quickly.  You do not have
to win the match.

__________________________________________________________________

1.5)

Steal Taunt

Match Type: Single

Superstar: Any

It is easy, just get a super clean metre full, then taunt. You do not have 
to win the match, but you have to complete the taunt.  It is best to do a
power move inside, get full momentum, then go outside and steal the taunt. 
That way, you do not have to worry about it being interrupted.
__________________________________________________________________
1.6)

Steal Finisher

Same setup as Steal Taunt, but stock a super clean move  and use the finisher 
steal.  Then, pin the opponent.  To steal a finisher, just get full momentum
and a stored finisher, then get into their situation and press L+L.  It is
best to go against someone like Triple H, Benoit, Cena or anyone else who has
a front finisher.

__________________________________________________________________

1.7)

Dive Challenge

Match: Singles


Superstar: Any

Just perform 5 dive attacks to the outside.  Use a cruiserweight for best 
results.  You can also do an aerial move.  I recommend that you  use a super 
clean guy, that way, you can get the steal a taunt, and, steal a finisher 
challenge done here.  Which is good because you get 3 Challenges done in one
match.

__________________________________________________________________
1.8)

Destroy two tables

Match: TLC


Superstar: Any

Break both two tables in the TLC match.  It is easy to set them up for a move
through the table.

__________________________________________________________________

1.9)

Possum

Match: Singles


Superstar: Any

Perform a possum attack. While you are down, you must have
a stocked finisher and you have to have the momentum meter full.
Hold O and press L to reverse a strike, and R to reverse a grapple. 
To pin, it is R and to strike, it is L.  You do not  have to win the 
match to get the challenge completed.
__________________________________________________________________

1.10)

Finisher reversal

Match: Singles


Superstar: Any

Just reverse a finisher.  When the time is right press, R + L.  You do not
need to have anything stocked to reverse it.

__________________________________________________________________

1.11)

Super Dirty Move

Match: Singles


Superstar: Any Dirty Character against Anyone

Perform a Super Dirty Tactic.  Get super dirty metre up full, then do the move

__________________________________________________________________

1.12)

Kick Out of A Possum Pin

Match: Singles


Superstar: Any

This is relatively easy if you can get out of pins quick enough.  Just kick 
out as you normally would.  But it does take  forever for your opponent to do 
a possum pin, so it is much easier just to use a second character here.  You
do not have to win the match to get the challenge completed, you just have to
kick out of the pin.

__________________________________________________________________

1.13)

Interrupt a Stolen Taunt

When a person steals your taunt, attack them.  Challenge done.  Keep in mind 
that they have to actually be a clean wrestler. This will get really annoying
because it takes forever for them to actually steal a taunt

__________________________________________________________________

1.14)

Throw 10 opponents

Match: 30 Man Royal Rumble

Anyone

Throw 10 opponents out by yourself in the rumble.  It is hard, but it is 
possible.  You should pick Big Show or  Andre.  Then, grapple by the ropes to 
lift them over the ropes.  Thanks to rr a ven for this, this is a list of
people who can be press slammed from the rumble by the Super Heavyweights

1 Daivari
2 RVD              
3 Hurricane
4 Spike
5 Rey Mysterio
6 Paul London
7 Scotty 2 Hotty
8 Chavo Guerrero
9 Tajiri
10 Christian
11 Shawn Michaels
12 Charlie Haas

__________________________________________________________________

1.15)

Break 4 weapons

Match: Any Kind


Superstar: Any

Just break 4 weapons in one match.  Best way to do this is to hit with a 
chair 4 times. Since you can do this in any kind of match, do it in a Hardcore
match.  You do not have to get the win, but after breaking 4 weapons, it is
pretty much implied that you will win.

__________________________________________________________________

All Amateur challenges done and Wrestlemania 21 Arena unlocked.  Well done.  
You also get the Amateur trophy.

2) Rising Star

Difficulty: Normal

2.1)

Tag Challenge

Match: Tag match


Superstar: Any

You have to tag your partner in 5 times.  Just throw 
opponent into corner and do a double team move there.  That
counts as a tag.  O + Direction for double team move.

__________________________________________________________________

2.2)

Fulfill Your Fantasy Match

Match Type: FYF match

Superstar: Any Diva

Win the match with your clothes intact

Pick someone strong, like Trish or , then do loads of power moves.

__________________________________________________________________

2.3)

Overcome the Odds

Match: Singles


Superstar: Any

Win the match after receiving 2 finishers

This one will require time and patience.  Pick someone with
good endurance, like Angle or Show. 
__________________________________________________________________

2.4)

No Limb Damage

Superstars: Anyone vs Anyone 

Match: Any

Win without getting any limb damage at all

Pick someone with good endurance against someone with weak
stats.  I used Angle vs Heidenreich.  

__________________________________________________________________
2.5)

Lets spank

Match: Fulfill your Fantasy battle royal

Superstars: Anyone vs Anyone

Perform 3 Spank Moves succesfully

This should be challenging, but easy at the same time.  Irish whip them into
the bed, and press down and circle.  When the bar comes up, move the right 
analogue stick up to the highlighted part, and then bring it down again.  You
have to repeat this 3 times.
__________________________________________________________________

2.6)

Ironman Match

Match: Ironman, Single

Superstars: Anyone vs Anyone

Win the match by 5 or more points

Use Kurt Angle or someone similar against someone of low stats, such as Jimmy
Hart, or Daivari.  Then, get 5 or more wins, then just stay away from the
opponent.

__________________________________________________________________

2.7)

No Finisher Challenge

Match: Singles


Superstar: Any

Win a match without using any finishers

Easy.  Just pick someone with very high strength, like  Big Show, and just 
use your power moves

______________________________________

2.8) 

Without Storing a Finisher

Match: Any

Superstars: Any

Win a match without storing a finisher

You can use a finisher though.  Soon as you get it, use it and pin to get t
he win.  Just be sure to use it as soon as you get it.

__________________________________________________________________

2.9)

Casket Finisher challenge

Match: Buried Alive

Superstars: Anyone versus Anyone

Perform a finisher into the casket

This is tricky as it requires precision.  Get right next to the casket with a 
finisher, and perform your finisher into the casket.  You also have to have 
a stocked finisher and full momentum.  You then press L While next to the 
casket.  To get them groggy, irish whip into casket.

__________________________________________________________________

2.10)

The Top of The Cell

Match: Hell In A Cell

Superstars: Anyone vs Anyone

Throw someone off the cell and win the match

Make the opponent follow you to the top of the cell.  Then, get them to the
edge of the cell and throw them off.  Simple as that, use a chokeslam or
something if you want a win.

______________________________________

2.11)

Slobberknocker Challenge

Match: Slobberknocker, No time limit

Superstars: Anyone

Become the new number 1 scorer in slobberknocker

Pick someone with High endurance and strength, like Show or Undertaker, and 
simply use lots of power moves.  You  will find that the opponents are weaker 
here than they  would be in normal matches.

__________________________________________________________________

2.12)

Rope Break Challenge

Match: Any

Superstars: Any

Win a match without performing any rope breaks.

Just stay away from the ropes, and make sure you try and

Confined challenge

Match: Any

Superstars: Any

Win a match without going outside the ring

This is to easy for words.  Just stay away from the ropes

a super heavyweight

Beat Trish in the match

This one is easy.  Just keep on hitting her with pillows and spanking her
and you should get the win quick enough

____________

3.2)

Wrestlemania 21 Rematch

Match: Single without manager

Superstars: Kurt vs Shawn

Arena: Wrestlemania 21

Beat Shawn in the match.  This is hard, but is is
easy enough once he is weakened down.  Use your submission
moves, followed by your suplexes.  If needed, do an aerial
move, but work on the legs and back.

____________

3.3)

Wrestlemania 20 Rematch

Match: Triple Threat

Superstars: Benoit vs Michaels vs HHH

Arena: WM 21

Wait until Michaels or HHH hit their finishers, then after

_________________

Summerslam Rematch

Match: Single, No Manager

Superstars: Hulk Hogan vs Shawn Michaels

Arena: Summerslam

You play as Hogan in this match.  It will take some work to beat Shawn, but
try and get the referee down and use some chair shots to weaken Shawn down. 
When his head is red, get him on the ground and do the Leg Drop

_______________

3.5)

ECW Rematch

Match: Single without manager

Superstars: Benoit vs Guerrero

Arena: ECW One Night Stand

Defeat Guerrero

Easy enough given how durable Benoit is.  Lock the
crossface in as soon as you get it.  He will counter a lot
though so use lots of reversals, then get some quick 
grapples in.

_____________________

3.6)Rest in Peace

Match: Buried Alive

Superstars: Undertaker vs Kane

Beat Kane

This is hard.  Use the weapons as much as you can to weaken
Kane down, then bury him in the casket.  Also, I suggest that you use 
Power Grapple, then the Chokeslam to weaken Kane down.

__________________________________

3.7)

Future Wrestlemania Match

Match: Single without manager

Arena: Wrestlemania 21

Superstars: Cena vs Batista

Beat Batista at the event

Batista is a lot stronger than Cena.  I recommend that you
do a lot of striking moves, and do the FU as soon as 
possible.

_______________


3.8)

ECW Fantasy Challenge

Match: 6 Man Battle Royal


Superstars: RVD vs Eddie, Benoit, Tajiri, Mysterio and 
Chris Jericho

Arena: ECW One Night stand

Defeat all these guys in the Royal

This is going to be your toughest challenge yet.
I recommend you stay in the corner for a lot of the match,
and capitalise where possible.  RVD has a lot of powerful
kicks so use those as well.

____________________

3.9)

Evolution Rematch

Match: Fatal Four Way Hell in The Cell

Superstars: Triple H vs Flair vs Orton vs Batista

This is quite hard but possible.  HHH is perhaps the best 
guy in the match.  Use the spinebuster on everyone to 
weaken them down, then capitalise with a pedigree.  And, as
with any other match with everyone against everyone, wait
until the others do a finisher, then try to steal the win.


_________________

3.10)

Cruiserweight Challenge

Match: 1 on 2 Handicap match

Superstars: Big Show vs Rey and London

This is easy.  These guys, while fighting together, are 
easy to get off.  Use the strong strikes, then power
grapples to weaken the guys down, then Showstopper them.

________________

3.11)

Vengeance rematch

Arena: Vengeance

Match: Single, No manager vs Guy with manager

Superstars: Kane vs Edge with lita

Easy enough, Edge is less durable and strong than Kane so
he should be easy pickings.  Just use the chokeslam when 
ready to pin.

______________________

3.12)

Bar Brawl Challenge

Match: Bar Room Brawl

Superstars: Carlito vs Cena

Beat Cena

This is hard as Cena is a lot better than Carlito. Since
there are weapons scattered around backstage, use them a
lot to get the win.  Use whatever you can.  It will be hard
but it can be done

________________

3.13)

Generations

Match: Tag match

Superstars: Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair vs John Cena, Randy Orton

Beat the young guys.  Hard as the old guys are not as 
strong as the young guys.  But use Flair and his 
submissions to wear down Orton and Cena and you should
win the match in time.

________________

3.14)

E vs C in TLC

Match: TLC SIngle

Superstars: Christian vs Edge

Beat Edge in the match

They are both pretty equal.  Use the weapons as an added
help to Christian.  Pin after an Unprettier to get the 
1_2_3 and the challenge.

_______________

3.15)

Survivor Series Rematch

Match: 6 man Elimination Chamber

Superstars: HBK vs HHH, Booker T, Kane, RVD and Jericho

Beat these guys

I have now found out that it does not matter where you start off in the match
but the strategy is the same.  Pick a high number, when you come out, if 
others are still around, hide while the others
fight, and keep on taunting to get a special. Then, come in
and do the Sweet chin Music

______________________

Unlocked: Legends Cage match and WM IX arena. Also

_______________

4.3)

Wrestlemania 3 Rematch

Match: Single

Superstars: 1980's Hogan vs Andre

Arena: Wrestlemania IX

This one will really annoy you. Use a second player if you cannot win.  Use
 the Big Boot and strikes to the max as  Hogan cannot lift Andre.  If you have
a special and he is on the ground, do the Leg Drop

_________________

4.4)

Wrestlemania 18 Rematch

Match: Single

Superstars: Rock vs Hollywood Hogan

Arena: Wrestlemania 21

Beat Hogan

This one should be quite easy.  Hogan is weaker

_______________

4.5)

Wrestlemania 13 Rematch

Match: Submission Single

Wrestlemania 9 Rematch

Match: Single, No manager vs Manager

Superstars: Ted Dibiase vs 80's Hogan/ Jimmy Hart

_______________

4.7)

Hell in A Cell Rematch

Superstars: Undertaker vs Mankind

Beat Mankind

for the win

________________

4.8)

Good vs Evil

Match: Single, NO DQ

Superstars: Hulk Hogan vs Hollywood Hogan

for the win

____________

4.9)

Money In the bank

Match: Ladder, Single

Superstars: JBL vs Ted DiBiase

Beat Ted

(Up and Down) and climb the ladder.

____________

4.10)

Real American Heroes

Match: Tag

Superstars: Angle and 80's Hogan against Hassan and Daivari

than H+D.  Do the Angle slam, tag Hogan and do the leg drop
to win.

____________

4.11)

Goliath vs Goliath

Match: Single

Superstars: Show vs Andre

Beat Andre The Giant

While Andre has slightly better stats than Show, it does not mean that he 
cannot be beat.  Use your Big Boot  (Down and X), and power grapples a lot.  
When ready, do The Showstopper for the 1 2 3
_____________________

4.12)

The Great Britain

Match: First Blood

Superstars: Regal vs British Bulldog

 recommend. As soon as he is cut open, you win the 
challenge

____________

4.13)

Old Dog, New Tricks

Match: Ironman

Superstars: Eugene vs Junkyard Dog

Beat JYD

Eugene has a far better moveset than JYD and has stronger
moves so use them.  JYD grapples a lot so counter a lot.
If you get a pin, avoid JYD.  This way, he cannot pin you.

_____________________

4.14)

True Technicians

Match: Steel Cage

Superstars: Benoit vs Hart

Beat Hart

This one is fun and realistic. I recommend that you do the
germans a lot, then some suplexes, then a sharpshooter, 
then another German, then escape the cage

_____________________

4.15)

Rap vs Rock

Match: TLC Single

Superstars: Cena vs Rock

The first two of Amateur, reversing moves, For Strikes, go against  
Steve Austin. For Grapples go against Angle or Gurrerro.

For the 3 finishers, USe a Face - especially a highflyer like London  
or Mysterio (as a face, an aerial move is usually a full SD! bar one  
off.)

For the commentator's tables, use a person with a power finisher -  
JBL, Batista, ect.

For Possum Pin kick out, fight against a computer-controlled  
Gurrerro. He does it constantly.

For the 10 people in the rumble, use a super heavyweight like Show or  
Andre the Giant. When ever a cruiserweight is in the ring,Toe kick  
(diagonal down and strike) and then press down-and-grapple. You pick  
them up. Walk to the edge of the ring, and press grapple to throw  
them out. No bar, no struggle.

For weapons' breakage, use someone with a 10 durability like Mankind  
as the opponent.

For clarification of the Diva spanking challenge: to spank, regular  
(not power) irish-whip the opponent into the bed. When she's doubled  
over the bed, direction-and-grapple to lay the girl over your knee.  
Use the right analog stick to control the spank: Press it up to raise  
the arm, and down within the confines of the small segment of the bar  
to do the spank. Two or three times and it's easy.

For the Ironman by 5 - just put Angle, Taker, Benoit or a high-level  
CAS versus Jimmy Hart. It does count and it's fast.

5.2) rr a ven's Suggestions

I made a list of ppl that Big Show can Military Press to the outside:
NOTE:. These are the only lightweights in the game, or at least to the best of
my knowledge.   In other words, Big Show can can Military Press these 
guys out of the ring.  I believe I was able to find all the lightweights 
on the roster.  I'm 95% sure that these are all the ppl.  Because I tried 
everyone who looked less than 245 lbs.  The only suprise (for who was a 
lightweight) was Christian because he 235 lbs.  The same applies for RVD 
and Kurt Angle because the y are both  230 lbs., yet only RVD can get Military
Pressed. 
1 Daivari
2 RVD              
3 Hurricane
4 Spike
5 Rey Mysterio
6 Paul London
7 Scotty 2 Hotty
8 Chavo Guerrero
9 Tajiri
10 Christian
11 Shawn Michaels
12 Charlie Haas
 
Then here are the other ppl I tried who can not be Military Pressed by
 Big Show, just for your knowledge:
 Steven Richards NO
 Robert Conway NO
 Sylain Grenier NO
 Eugene NO
 Eddie Guerrero NO
 Doug Basham NO
 Carlito NO
 Kurt Angle NO
 Randy Orton NO
 Chris Jericho NO
 Muhammad Hassan NO
 Chris Benoit NO
 Shelton Benjamin NO
 Edge NO


----------------------

5.3) Mike Lo's Suggestions


**Interrupt a Stolen Taunt**
What I did here is choose a wrestler with a long taunt. I used Edge, but
there are others.. Triple H.. Batista.. Then, choose Ric Flair as an
opponent. I chose Flair because he has no finishers that would enable him to
pin you. In the game, let Flair toss you around until he picks up a
finisher. Try not to stay on the mat, or he'll pull off his Figure Four Leg
Lock. ..::!!( Alternatively, you could just let him pull it off on you twice
and get that Rising Star challenge called "Overcoming the Odds" done too.)
When Ric Flair has stored a finisher, keep on stalling and going out of the
ring. If you have Count Out on, get back in the ring and out again to
disrupt the count. Flair will constantly taunt, and for me, after 5 minutes,
Flair decided to steal my taunt, and I went in and made sure he paid for it
:D Also, it is important to note that the user's opponent MUST BE A CLEAN
WRESTLER.

**Kick out of a Possum Pin**
Go against Eddie Guerrero, and let him build and store a finisher. Then,
while he's on the ground, stomp on him, and once in a while, he'll pull off
a possum pin.

Also, another easy way to complete the Superstar and Legend Challenges is to
use the Game Sliders to your advantage. Minimize all the CPU's reverse
rates, turn stamina off, jack up to the max the rate of momentum gained.
These would make the 2 last Challenges easier.

6) Questions

6.1) How do I do power grapples?

It really varies between people.  Thanks to The Paladin for this, "The
only set grapple is Submission (Down + Circle)

---------------------------------------

6.2) Can I use this?

Yes, but credit me

---------------------------------------

6.3) I am having a hard time with (challenge), how do I do it?

Refer to the strategy I put

---------------------------------------

6.4) Can I use two players for the challenges?

Not in the PSP version as far as I am aware

---------------------------------------

6.5) How do I reverse the casket door?

You would be amazed how much people ask me this.  To reverse the casket door,
you have to press R when the ball drops into the blue bar.  As I said 
before in teh guide, it is R, not the shoulder pads

---------------------------------------

6.6) How do I unlock Jake "The Snake" Roberts?

You have to connect up with the PSP version of the game to unlock the
legendary Snake Man

---------------------------------------

6.7) Is Jake "The Snake" Roberts needed for the Legend Challenges to be 
unlocked?

No, you do not have to Unlock Jake Roberts to unlock Legend challenges

---------------------------------------

6.8) What is Challenge Mode?

Challenge mode is a feature of the game that has been in it since the original
 Smackdown vs Raw. Rather than have you play lots of matches like the ones 
beforehand, in this game and SD vs Raw, you have challenges. For example, 
execute a possum pin, or do 5 dive attacks, or reverse a finisher. You can 
earn money and arenas and unlock more stuff from this mode.

---------------------------------------
6.9) Why is the challenge not completing

"I was trying to complete the 'challenge that had you use Ted Dibiase
 to beat up Hogan 80's. I won, but I didn't get the challenge completed.
 How come?"

Is the difficulty set right?  Did he disqualify himself?  If not, I do not 
know why it is not completing.  It could also be that you have already
completed the challenge.

---------------------------------------

6.10) Where is challenge mode found?

In exhibition.  But in your locker room (Accessable from the main menu), there
is a PSD next to the computer.  That is the challenge mode PSD, where you can
find the requirements for each challenge.

---------------------------------------

6.11) What is Direct Challenge?

Direct Challenge is something for Superstar and Legend challenges that let you
go directly to the Challenge.  You do not have to go through exhibition.  
To activate it, highlight the challenge you want (For example, Wrestlemania 20
Rematch) and press Start.  It will then set the difficulty to hard (If it is
not already on hard) and set the match to a triple threat between Triple H,
Chris Benoit and Shawn Michaels.

---------------------------------------

6.12) i cant do a possum??? i hold O then press R when he wan to 
grapple me.... my stored finisher went missing but my superstar juz 
sleep down there?

You have to have a stored finisher and full momentum to do a Possum

---------------------------------------

6.13) How do you unlock the legend challenges?

To unlock the legend challenges, you have to unlock and buy all the legends.

Most of them can be bought from shopzone, here are ones who can but need 
special requirements

Hollywood Hogan - Beat SD Season

80' Hogan - Beat Raw Season

Jimmy Hart - Win Tough Enough Trophy

Ted DiBiase - Beat Superstar challenges

---------------------------------------

6.14) What is the benefit of completing challenge mode?

The benefits are many.  First of all, you get a cool $40000.  Then, you get 
new arenas which are listed below.  You also have legends.
