    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
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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
    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.
    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
    Throw 10 opponents
    Match: 30 Man Royal Rumble
    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
    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
    End of match bonuses: $1500
    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.
    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.
    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. 
    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.  
    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.
    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
    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
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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
    roll away from the ropes.  Stay near the centre of the ring
    and hope that the opponent does not toss you.
    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
    and the challenge is yours.  Going onto the turnbuckle
    counts as well so don't do any aerial moves.
    10 Man Royal Rumble
    Match: 10 Man Royal Rumble
    Superstar: Any
    Win a 10 man royal rumble when you are the number 1 entrant
    Should be easy, pick Big Show or Andre the Giant to win it.
    Again, use the power grapple to lift them above your head,
    and O again to throw them over the ropes.

    Difficulty: Hard
    Cash: $2000
    Undisputed Babe of The Year
    Match: Fulfill your Fantasy
    Superstars: Stacy Kiebler vs Trish Stratus
    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
    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.
    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
    they do them, go behind and german suplex and pin the
    guy who received the finisher
    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
    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.
    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 
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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
    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.
    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.
    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
    Superstar Trophy.  You also get Ted DiBiase
    4) Legend Challenges
    To Unlock, unlock all Arenas and legends. Also, complete all other
    challenges.  And by all legends, I mean in game already, so no Jake
    Legend challenges
    Cash: $3000
    Difficulty: Legend
    These are the final challenges, but are very hard so  follow the guide closely
    Wrestlemania 12 Rematch
    Match: Ironman Single
    Superstars: Michaels vs Hart
    Arena: Wrestlemania IX
    Beat Hart
    He is way to strong to beat easily. So use a second player and just pin him 
    a lot to win.  Use the Music again, then do a couple of scoopslams and a 
    Wrestlemania 17 Rematch
    Match: Single, No Disqualification
    Superstars: Austin vs The Rock
    Arena: Wrestlemania 21
    Beat the Rock.
    This one is equal, therefore it is hard but since  they are equal in strength
    ,you  will win if you use the  right strategy.  Use power moves a lot, then 
    do Stunner, and if needed, another stunner.
    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
    Wrestlemania 18 Rematch
    Match: Single
    Superstars: Rock vs Hollywood Hogan
    Arena: Wrestlemania 21
    Beat Hogan
    This one should be quite easy.  Hogan is weaker
    than The Rock so use a lot of power moves on Hogan, then 
    stock a finisher, do Rock Bottom, then Peoples Elbow
    Wrestlemania 13 Rematch
    Match: Submission Single
    Superstars: Hart vs Austin
    Arena: WM IX
    Hart is way better than Austin in submission.  So use all your power and quick
    moves to weaken his body and legs,  then lock the Sharpshooter in.
    Wrestlemania 9 Rematch
    Match: Single, No manager vs Manager
    Superstars: Ted Dibiase vs 80's Hogan/ Jimmy Hart
    Arena: WM IX
    Beat Hogan
    Ted DiBiase has quite good stats that can rival Hogan's so use a lot of power 
    grapples.  Then, lock in the Million Dollar Dream to beat him.
    Hell in A Cell Rematch
    Match: Hell in A Cell
    Superstars: Undertaker vs Mankind
    Beat Mankind
    Should be easy enough, if needed, get on top of the cell 
    and throw Mankind off to weaken him.  Then, do a chokeslam
    for the win
    Good vs Evil
    Match: Single, NO DQ
    Superstars: Hulk Hogan vs Hollywood Hogan
    Beat Hollywood Hogan
    Interesting.  Hogan vs Hogan.  Equal stats mainly.  You know his moves so use 
    your moves against him as they are quite different.  Then, do the leg Drop 
    for the win
    Money In the bank
    Match: Ladder, Single
    Superstars: JBL vs Ted DiBiase
    Beat Ted
    JBL is better than Ted.  Use his swinging neckbreaker (
    Up and Up) to your advantage.  When ready, do Powerbomb
    (Up and Down) and climb the ladder.
    Real American Heroes
    Match: Tag
    Superstars: Angle and 80's Hogan against Hassan and Daivari
    Beat Hassan and Daivari
    Should be Easy, both of your guys are much better stats 
    than H+D.  Do the Angle slam, tag Hogan and do the leg drop
    to win.
    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
    The Great Britain
    Match: First Blood
    Superstars: Regal vs British Bulldog
    Make Bulldog Bleed
    This one will take up some time. Just use weapons is what I
     recommend. As soon as he is cut open, you win the 
    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.
    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
    Rap vs Rock
    Match: TLC Single
    Superstars: Cena vs Rock
    Beat Rock
    This one is frustrating  Rock counters an insane  amount of times. Use the
    weapons a lot, then do an FU while on the table to get the win.
    Reward: Alt Steve Austin Attire
    That is all challenges done.  You should have a lot more money now.  
    You also have Legends Trophy
    5) Fan Submissions
    Here is an extra section, where you the reader can send in strategies.
    5.1) Saint Stryfe's Suggestions
    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  
    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
    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
    **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 
    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.
