    Q&A [TNA10]
    ==============================================================================
    
    Q:  What is the fastest way to earn style points?
    A:  Use two controllers.  As the first player, continually alternate moves
    against the second player.  Use top rope moves and ground grapples for the
    most points.
    
    Q:  How do I unlock Mike Tenay?
    A:  The only known way to unlock Mike Tenay is through an Amazon.com pre-order
    code.  This code is an XBox Live Marketplace code, so once it is used it is no
    longer good.  Therefore, the code can not be shared between players.
    
    Q:  How do I get the "Shark in the Water" achievement?
    A:  Nobody currently knows how to unlock this achievement.  The rumor is that
    you must beat everyone, including Mike Tenay, with Shark Boy.
    
    
    Q:  I've won way more than 25 matches... Why hasn't "Mid-Card Contender"
    unlocked?
    A:  All 25 wins must be in one sitting, so do not turn off the console when
    you are going for the 25 wins.
    
    
    Q:  What wrestlers are not included in Impact
    A:  Lance Rock, Jimmy Rave, Sheik Abdul Bashir, Matt Morgan, The Knockouts,
        Consequences Creed
    
    Q:  Did Colt Cabana really help in the development in this game?
    A:  Yes, he's in the credits as a motion capture artist.
