Chapter 1 - The Wrestlers

This section provides bios for all the WWE superstars available for selection in WrestleMania XIX. These bios reveal the superstars' finishing moves (including what grapple type to use for them) and the superstars' light and heavy, front and rear grapple maneuvers. The directions after each move indicate in what direction you should move the control stick to perform the move.

Superstars are also rated in strengths and weaknesses. These categories correspond to the abilities section of the Create a Superstar mode. The following list reveals the general meaning of the abilities so you can better gauge your superstar's strengths and weaknesses.

  • Basic-Endurance: Relates to the superstar's stamina and ability to endure damage during the match.
  • Basic-Strength: The relative strength of the superstar. If strength is a principle trait of a superstar, then he or she is adept at punishing maneuvers.
  • Basic-Agility: Relates to the superstar's quickness. Generally a superstar with this specialty is faster than he or she is strong and likely more adept at faster maneuvers and jumping.
  • Basic-Jumping: The superstar excels at flying moves, such as off the turnbuckle. The higher this statistic, the farther the superstar can fly.
  • Basic-Recovery: The superstar excels at recovering from the opponent's maneuvers.
  • Attack-Striking: Relates to the superstar's ability to use strike attacks (B button). If your superstar excels here, his or her strike attacks are tougher to counter.
  • Attack-Grappling: Relates to the superstar's ability to use grappling attacks (A button). If your superstar excels here, his or her grappling attacks are tougher to counter.
  • Attack-Joint Locks: Relates to the superstar's submission maneuvers. If your superstar excels here, his or her submission moves are more damaging.
  • Defense-Resilience: How well the superstar does at countering strike attacks.
  • Defense-Escape: How well your superstar can counter grapples.
  • Defense-Flexibility: Proficiency at countering submission moves.

Chapter 2 - General Strategies

This section provides a handful of general strategies for playing against your friends or challenging the computer in solo play.

Check those wrestler bios and moves to know your favorite superstar's strengths and weaknesses.
  • Know your wrestler! It's an obvious tip but it's also one of the most important. Check over the wrestler biographies and know the superstar's strengths and weaknesses. If your superstar's weakness is "Basic: Jumping" then he won't excel off the turnbuckle or with flying attacks off the apron. You can perform them certainly but don't expect to get the distance or damage of a superstar that excels in that area.
  • Similar to the first tip, it's also wise to know your wrestler's special moves and how they're performed. For instance, to perform Ric Flair's Nature Boy Special, you must use a front grapple while pressing the special move buttons (A + B). If you don't do a front grapple, Flair won't perform that particular special move. All of the special moves and how to perform them are revealed in the wrestler bio section of this guide.
  • Mix up your attacks. Don't constantly perform light or heavy grapples. Use a full strike combination (keep pressing B) or just use two strikes then go in for the light or heavy grapple. If you use the same maneuver over and over, expect the computer or a friend to start countering very easily. If you become predictable, it's easy to anticipate the move and have a finger primed and ready to press the L or R button to nail that counter. Same goes for when you plan to go for your special move. Throw a punch or two first so it's more difficult for your opponent to counter.
  • Don't forget to use your superstar's taunts. They increase your adrenaline gauge. And the faster you raise your adrenaline, the closer you are to being able to perform a powerful finishing move. Note that you are vulnerable to attack while your superstar enacts his taunt animation. However, if your opponent gets close just hit a button to get out of the taunt and resume fighting.

You should be able to anticipate your opponent's moves and counter them more quickly than your opponent can execute them.

  • It can't be stressed enough that counters are extremely key to all match success. You should not rely on the helpful hints provided by the game as to when to counter and what button to use. Instead, memorize the appropriate counter button for the specific situation. If your opponent is punching or kicking, counter with the R button; if your opponent is using a weapon, counter with the R button; if your opponent attempts a grapple, use the L button; if your opponent throws a weapon, counter with the L button; and if your opponent attempts a special move, counter with the L + R button.
  • Each superstar's spirit meter is your gauge on how the match is currently progressing. If you're in the red, you have the momentum; if you're in the blue, you're almost done and will likely be pinned. If you're in the green then you're somewhere in between. Effective counters and attacks improve your superstar's spirit. When you're ahead in the match (possess a greater spirit), keep the pressure on. Use everything in your arsenal, like submission holds (especially if your wrestler excels with them). Pick your opponent up off the ground (mixing it up one what you perform from there), and take advantage of the situation with a pin attempt. Close the book on your opponent and don't let him get back in the match with a few counters.
  • Don't hesitate to take the fight outside the ring. Pounce on an opponent attempting to follow you out; you can snag a weapon from underneath the ring, or can try and keep your opponent out long enough to get a count out win.

Chapter 3 - Match Strategies

This section offers some strategies specific to the different match types available in WrestleMania XIX.

Tag Team: The classic two-on-two tag team match-up. It's mostly about using your teammate effectively (unless you're playing with a human partner). Memorize the following commands and use them at the appropriate moments to help you win the match:

  • Attack current legal opponent and interrupt pin: Z button plus control pad UP. If you want to double team the legal opponent, use this command. If you've been pinned and need immediate help to survive, call in your partner with this command.
  • Attack current non-legal opponent and prevent run-in: Z button plus control pad LEFT. You've just pinned the legal opponent. Use this command to send your teammate into the ring to prevent the other opponent from interrupting the pin.
  • Set up partner for tag team move: Z button plus control pad DOWN. Pull off some double team moves through this set up command.
  • Attack/distract the referee: Z button plus control pad RIGHT. Have your partner distract the ref while you grab a weapon from underneath the ring and smash the legal opponent over the head a few times.
  • Triple Threat: Three superstars compete in the ring; the winner is the first to score a submission or pinfall. It's every superstar for himself (or herself) but expect to get teamed up on occasionally…or if you're really unlucky, expect to get teamed up on frequently.
  • Fatal Four Way: Four superstars compete in the ring; the winner is the first to score a submission or pinfall. Avoid getting double-teamed as much as possible and work on the weakest wrestler. If you've knocked one opponent down, look for a chance to double team another guy for a few easy blows.
  • Handicap: Handicap is similar to a triple threat except it is two on one team and just one on another. You can select to be on the two-man team or choose to face those opponents alone. Slam opponents into each other to knock them both down then quickly unleash another attack on the closest foe.
  • Survive against 29 other wrestlers in the ultimate endurance match: the WWE Royal Rumble.
  • Royal Rumble: Be the last man standing from up to 29 other wrestlers. Eliminate other superstars by throwing them out of the ring. Though it won't be easy, you should try to avoid being ganged up on. As Revenge Mode will clearly show you, fighting in an outnumbered situation can drain your spirit quickly. Target weak wrestlers; actively seek them out because they'll be much easier to toss out of the ring (just Irish Whip them close to the side). If they try to hang on, use the B button to unleash strikes to knock them to the ground and out of the tournament.

Match Strategies - cont.

  • Hardcore Match: Anything goes in a hardcore match and it primarily means the addition of weaponry. You'll find an arsenal scattered around the ring (pipes, chairs, trash cans) and even more weapons underneath the ring. Weapon strikes are excellent for building spirit (and draining your opponent's) but not good for boosting adrenaline. Don't get too greedy. These strikes are fairly easily countered by hitting the R button; if countered, your opponent grabs the weapon and turns the tables on you! Weapons are also great for opening a wound and don't forget to perform some DDTs on the chairs. Note that pinfalls count anywhere so you can fight outside the ring and even pin your opponent there but the refs are typically too slow to get off a three count from that far.
  • Ladder Match: In a ladder match, a belt is suspended above the ring. You must set up the ladder underneath the belt, climb the ladder, and grab the belt to win the match. Lining up the ladder is the first task. Look for the shadow of the belt and place it directly underneath. If you're off, you won't be able to grab the belt after the hard work of getting up the ladder. Secondly, it's often easier to let a computer opponent start climbing the ladder, allowing you to punch or kick him off. That should buy you enough time to get to the top and grab the belt. If you want to pummel your opponent first, do a finishing move preferably as far away from the ladder as possible.
  • Table Match: Toss your opponent through the table to win a table match. Grab either table outside the ring (one starts on either side) and set it up inside the ring. You can Irish Whip an opponent onto the table then climb the table yourself and perform a slam or you can set up the table on a turnbuckle, Irish Whip your opponent into it, and perform a running attack to smash the table. Placing the table in a turnbuckle can be tricky. Walk to the turnbuckle and press X plus move the control stick in the direction of the turnbuckle to prop the table up.
  • TLC Match: The TLC match has the same rules as a ladder match but with tables and chairs for added punishment. Whack your opponent with some chair and table attacks before setting up that ladder and going for the win. Use the same tactics as a ladder match, but just don't hesitate to employ those weapons.
  • Utilize that table and wack your opponent over the head.
  • Cage Match: The only way to win a cage match is to climb to the top of the cage and out of the ring. All general strategies apply here. You certainly want to pummel your opponent into a pulp before attempting to get out of the cage, but there will be times when you need to make a quick save to stop your opponent from winning. Rattle the cage to knock off a fleeing opponent. If it's a triple threat or fatal four way, you can Irish Whip opponents into the appropriate side of the cage to knock escaping superstars off.
  • Hell in a Cell: Compete in an enclosed cell, though fighting can also occur on top of the cell. You can also bust through the cell by Irish Whipping an opponent into the wall three times (it is how you'll reach the top of the cage and snag any weapons underneath the ring). And if you're fighting on top of the cage, perform a suplex or other slam three times on a panel and knock your opponent through for a crushing blow (it breaks on the third blow).
  • Ironman Match: Force your opponent to submit as many times as possible within the time limit. Ideally you should select a superstar that excels at joint locks and even has a submission hold as their finishing move.

Chapter 4 - Revenge Mode Walk-through

This section offers a walk-through of WrestleMania XIX's new "Revenge" story mode. In Revenge mode, you've been kicked out of the WWE by Vince McMahon but offered a chance at revenge by fellow WWE superstar, Stephanie McMahon. Revenge mode sends you through a construction site, shopping mall, parking lot, and harbor in an attempt to ruin Vince's wrestling empire.

Revenge mode is a lot tougher than it may appear on the surface. You are often forced to battle two or three enemies at a time. And even though these might be just security officers and dock workers, they have mastered the art of wrestling maneuvers and can dish out a lot of punishment in a short amount of time. Furthermore, you're at the mercy of the clock too; these revenge mode missions have time limits that must be adhered to or the mission ends in failure.

Your first choice in Revenge mode is which WWE superstar to pick. Quick finishing moves can definitely help out in the long run. These special moves are key to quickly draining enemy energy and it certainly helps if they can be performed quickly. Wrestlers with running attack special moves (such as Test, Goldberg, and Edge for instance) certainly provide an advantage. Note that if you chose Goldberg, the ending movie differs slightly than if you used any other superstar.

One of the most frequent challenges is to knock a specific number of wrestlers off an area within a certain amount of time. This can include throwing workers off the harbor or chucking workers off a high platform at the construction site. There are multiple ways to knock these enemies off.

  • Face the enemy so the enemy is between you and the edge. Use strikes in combination (press the B button) to push the enemy off the edge. He'll likely lose his balance, fall off, and grab hold of the edge. Walk up to the enemy's hands and use the B button to stomp on his fingers. Two or three strikes will make the enemy lose grip and fall off.
  • A series of strikes can knock an enemy off a ledge. Just follow up the attack with some good ole hand stomping.
  • Instead of using strikes to throw off the enemy, use the Irish Whip maneuver. Stand between the enemy and the edge (with your back to the edge) and press Y plus A at the same time (tap them) to send the enemy on an Irish Whip move off the edge. If the enemy is fairly healthy, he'll lose his balance, fall off, and grab hold of the edge. Now just use B strikes to kick his hand and send him off.
  • Use the Irish Whip technique against an enemy with exhausted energy and the enemy won't just lose his balance and grab hold of the edge--he'll be thrown off instantly.
  • Use choke throws or similar moves to toss enemies off the edge.

You can use a variety of wrestling moves to weaken encountered enemies. Save up for special finishing moves and use them at key times. For instance, in a mission where you must reach a certain location, use finishing moves to keep enemies down for a longer period of time, providing the opportunity to scamper quickly to the destination.

Revenge Mode Tips - cont.

Weapons are scattered throughout some missions (certain weapon locations are mentioned in the mission walk-throughs) and should be used to help weaken your enemies. Bash enemies in the head when they're standing or pound them on the ground if the enemy has fallen. The enemies are fairly adept at stealing the weapon from your grip so don't use too many standing blows in a row. If the weapon is taken, use the R button to counter and grab the weapon back.

In missions where you are facing multiple enemies, an effective strategy is to weaken one's "spirit" (essentially the health meter) until it's blue or complete gone. That enemy will stay down longer after attacked. Instead of throwing him out of your current location, keep him around and concentrate on the other enemies. He'll stay down longer allowing you to work on the other enemies that arrive.

The biggest plus in Revenge mode is that you earn money for every completed mission. The money can be used in ShopZone to purchase Create a Superstar parts, entrances, moves, and weapons and ability points. Cash is awarded for five different categories:

Base Points: A fixed dollar amount for completing the mission.

Technique Points: Earn more cash by performing special moves and performing a variety of moves. It pays to not use the same maneuver over and over.

Opponent Bonus: Bigger bonus for tougher enemies.

Objective Bonus: You'll receive a higher bonus for utilizing weaponry.

Time Bonus: Complete missions quickly to receive a higher bonus.

You receive cash at the end of each completed mission. Your performance directly affects how much cash you are awarded.

You also receive cash in a sixth category: the amount of points you receive during the mission. Score points by performing strikes and maneuvers on your enemies. Generally the more damaging the move, the more points you receive (perform finishers to receive the most points).

Money accumulates fairly slowly. There is a lot to purchase in ShopZone; if you want everything, you'll have to play missions over and over again.

Some missions are good for accumulating cash. Any mission that requires you to throw enemies off an edge can become a cash cow. Throw all but one off as quickly as possible. Instead of throwing off the last enemy, keep him around and keep performing quick finishing moves (each adds to your point total and the technique bonus). But don't run out of time! Throw off that last enemy before time runs out or you'll lose all of your progress.

Construction Site Mission 1

Objective: Prevent the workers from constructing the arena. Within the time limit, throw the workers off the construction site platform.
Time Limit: 15 minutes
Enemies: 5

This is the first of many "knock people off ledges" missions in the Revenge mode. Stick near the edges and use the Irish Whip move to fling enemies off the edge. If an enemy tries to regain their balance, start striking until the enemy falls off. If the enemy hangs onto the edge, use strikes to kick the enemy off. You can also drain the enemy's energy with standard wrestling moves (specials are always effective) then Irish Whip them off in a single move. Or use choke throws or other tosses to hurl an enemy off the edge.

Construction Site Mission 2

Objective: Continue to prevent workers from constructing the area. More workers are seeking you out. Within the time limit, knock them off the construction site platform!
Time Limit: 10 minutes
Enemies: 8

Now you must battle two enemies at once. But the same strategy applies. Keep striking an enemy near the edge to send him off; as the enemy hangs on to the edge, use strikes to kick him off. Don't forget your Irish Whips and throw moves to send them flying off the edge. Use weapons nearby to deplete an enemy's health quickly. While one enemy is down (or been thrown off), attack the other aggressively near the edge. You'll also face a random WWE superstar in this one.

Construction Site Mission 3

Objective: Take out Vince's reinforcements! Throw Vince's reinforcements off of the high rise platform!
Time Limit: 15 minutes
Enemies: 10

This is pretty much the same situation as the previous mission, with just a few more enemies to deal with. The same strategies apply. Look to Irish Whip an enemy off the edge or just use strikes to knock the enemy off. If an enemy hangs onto the edge, use strikes to kick the enemy off. You'll be double-teamed again, so try and keep one enemy down at all time. If you can wear one out, work on the other guy. If an enemy is low on health, he'll stay down longer, which means he'll stay out of your way longer.

Use strikes or an Irish Whip to send enemies off the side.

Construction Site Mission 4

Objective: You've been challenged to a little friendly competition! Compete against a superstar to see who can throw off more workers within the time limit.
Time Limit: 5 minutes

In this mission, there's no required number of workers to toss off the side. Instead, you compete against a random WWE superstar to see who can throw off the most workers in the five minute time limit. Prevent the superstar from throwing off guys, if possible. Hit him when he's engaged. You can also knock the superstar off, which gives you some extra time against the workers. Accumulate more points than your opponent, then just work to prevent him from scoring any more. Just stay engaged with the superstar and dish out some power moves to keep him on the ground and away from the other workers.

Construction Site Mission 5

Objective: Vince sent a superstar after you, so you must take him out! Within the time limit, take out the superstar guarding the wrecking ball control room.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

This is one of the tougher revenge missions. First you must figure out where the WWE superstar even is, then figure out how to get there, and finally figure out how to deal with the two workers preventing you from reaching the superstar! That doesn't even take into consideration what you have to do to the superstar once you find him!

As soon as the mission begins, go toward the large staircase on the far side of the site. When you get to the small fence, climb the ledge to the left. Note the chain link fence on the right; you can climb this fence. The superstar is on the ledge at the top of the fence.

The main problem is you can't simply climb the fence because the other two workers will shake the fence, which knocks you back down to the ground. You must incapacitate the other two workers long enough to climb the fence and reach the superstar. Pummel the two workers and build to your special move ability. Take them down with special moves. It may be wiser to do this away from the fence (once you know its location) so you can then run back to the fence and start the climb while the other workers remain on the ground.

Even if you do reach the top, the workers will follow and pose a difficult triple-team situation. The object is to simply toss the superstar off the left side (the right side is ground). You could toss him off the right side; the fall will cause severe injury but he'll come back up the fence (as will any worker thrown off the right side) but with little or no energy. To complete the mission, throw the superstar off the left side.

Construction Site Mission 6

Objective: Protect the Wrecking Ball controls! You must guard the wrecking ball controls from the workers within the time limit. You will have to use these controls to destroy the arena. Don't let anyone reach the controls!
Time Limit: 5 minutes.

Remember that chain link fence from the previous mission? Now you must guard it from enemy workers and a random "boss" character. Inevitably, an enemy will begin to climb the fence. You must shake the fence (with the A button) to knock any climbers down. Don't let any enemy reach the top or the mission ends in failure and you must start over from the beginning. You could wait until the climber gets high, however; the long fall hurts!

You must protect the wrecking ball controls by preventing all enemies from climbing the fence.

Perform your finishing moves to keep workers on the ground. You don't have to throw people off the side; it's better to have them hurt and slow to get up, because if you throw off a worker, a fresh replacement arrives ready to try and climb that fence. Protect the fence for five minutes to complete the mission.

Shopping Mall Mission 1

Objective: Take out the shopping mall security! Give the security a beating that will never forget. You must knock them all out and make them bleed within the time limit.
Time Limit: 20 minutes
Enemies: 4

There are several missions similar to this one: knock out your enemies and make them bleed! The easiest way to accomplish this task is to use a weapon. Look for one on the shopping mall floor. When your opponent is standing, use strikes to nail them in the head. If the enemy is on the ground, use strikes aimed for their head.

Shopping Mall Mission 2

Objective: Stephanie has been detained by the security force. Within the time limit, break into the security office.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

In this mission, there aren't a specific number of enemies to incapacitate. Instead, you must locate Stephanie McMahon and break down the obstruction blocking her escape. The first part of your mission is locating her. Go down the escalator and cross the middle fountain. Find Stephanie behind the glass-like obstruction.

Avoid the enemies until you reach the security office. Now, just fight any enemies encountered near the door. After tossing one to the ground, shift your focus to the door. Use strikes to pound away at the door at every opportunity. You can also whip enemies into the door to cause damage. The mission concludes once you've destroyed the security office door and freed Stephanie. If you're having trouble getting damage on the door, concentrate on the enemies for a bit and get them to low energy so they won't get up as quickly.

Shopping Mall Mission 3

Objective: Destroy Vince's WrestleMania promotional signage! Destroy all of Vince's WrestleMania signs before time runs out.
Time Limit: 5 minutes

There are three signs to destroy. While the task may seem easy, it's actually quite difficult because the signs can sustain a decent amount of damage, there are two enemies to deal with, and you're on a tight schedule with just a five minute time limit.

The promotional signs are more durable than they appear. You must work quickly to destroy all three within the time limit.

You'll need to shift your attacks between the enemies and the sign. Pound the sign with strikes at every opportunity. Face the sign, press the control stick against the sign, and use the B button to strike. After destroying a sign, use the Y button to run to the next sign and begin a second wave of attacks. Try to fight near the sign because your attacks with other enemies may damage the sign and plus when you do throw an enemy down, you're close to the sign to engage the promotional material with strikes.

Shopping Mall Mission 4

Objective: Prevent Vince's security from reaching the briefcase. Vince has stored his WrestleMania main event contract in this briefcase. Prevent his security personnel form getting the briefcase within the time limit.
Time Limit: 5 minutes

This is similar to the construction site mission where you had to prevent workers from climbing the chain fence. Here you must prevent workers from climbing the pole, which leads to Vince's briefcase. To shake the pole, press toward the pole and use the B button. Stay close to the pole and switch targets frequently so you're attacking the enemy nearest the pole. Don't worry about special moves, especially if they're long; while you're performing a finishing move on one guy, the other is likely climbing the pole to victory!

Shopping Mall Mission 5

Objective: Raise havoc and destroy everything in sight! Destroy 20 objects in the mall before time runs out.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

Once again you don't have to worry about incapacitating other workers. Now you're just out to destroy as many objects as you can in the shopping mall! There are enemies in there area, however, and they will try and stop you. Don't deviate from your mission just to tangle with the area's enemies.

Head up the escalator to the second floor; it's littered with breakable objects and it won't take you long to complete the mission if you stay on the upper level. You can break benches, trees, windows, and even the railing along the upper floor edge. Break a railing and move to the adjacent one and break it for another point. Note that you don't receive credit if an enemy happens to break one of the objects. Run away from the workers if necessary to find a brief, quiet place to break more stuff.

Shopping Mall Mission 6

Objective: Protect your getaway car and try to destroy your opponent's car.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

This is one of the toughest revenge mode missions. There are two cars in the shopping mall: your car and your opponent's car. The object is to destroy your opponent's car (marked with the yellow arrow) but your opponent can destroy your car. The problem is your opponent is very aggressive about destroying your car; furthermore, he's brought along a worker friend that makes matters very difficult. The worker can keep you occupied while your opponent (a boss character) beats your car into metal shards.

When you have the sledgehammer, stay away from the two enemies and take any available shot on your opponent's car.

There's a sledgehammer on the ground between the two cars. You'll need to use the sledgehammer to demolish the car. If you don't use the sledgehammer, the boss will and there's no way to destroy the boss' car with fists faster than the boss destroys your car with the sledgehammer.

Get the sledgehammer as quickly as possible and work on incapacitating the two enemies. Get their energy low so that they take awhile to get up and rejoin the action. Keep the fighting near your opponent's car so you can pound on the vehicle after throwing down the two foes. Note that when the boss grabs the sledgehammer, he'll likely make a quick beeline for your car. If the worker grabs the sledgehammer, he won't try and hit the car; he'll only hit you.

At every opportunity, run with hammer in hand to the target car and get in some strikes. Even try running around the car avoiding the two foes. If you're ahead of them, stop and smash the car a couple times then keep running. If the boss grabs the hammer and heads to your car, chase him quickly and grab him before he can inflict heavy damage. The cars fall fairly quickly to the mighty sledgehammer. If you perform a finisher move, use it on the boss. If you use it on the worker, the boss will likely grab the hammer and start beating on your car during the entire process.

Parking Lot Mission 1

Objective: Destroy the cars in Vince's parking lot! Put three of Vince's security force through a car within the time limit.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

In the first parking lot mission, you must slam three enemies into the cars in Vince McMahon's parking lot. The easiest way to accomplish this task is to use the smaller, sportier cars (easier to get the enemies on). Stand near one of the cars and use the Irish Whip maneuver to send the enemy into the car; the enemy will roll on top of the car. Use the Y button while pressing against the car to join the enemy atop the car. Hit X to grab the enemy then perform some sort of slam maneuver to toss the enemy onto the car. You receive a notification if successful.

Parking Lot Mission 2

Objective: Take out Vince's security force! Give the security force a beating they will never forget. You must knock them all out and make them bleed within the time limit.
Time Limit: 15 minutes
Enemies: 5

In this mission you need to make five enemies bleed within the allotted time limit. Note that you won't face more than two enemies at any given time. As with the previous missions of this type, the key is using the weapon. Grab the sledgehammer and use it to strike the enemies. Use a finisher move to drain an enemy's energy, which causes them to stay down longer. Meanwhile, this gives you more chances to work one-on-one against the other enemy. Bash the foe with the sledgehammer. Finish off all five to complete the mission.

Parking Lot Mission 3

Objective: Seek out the payment Stephanie has left for you! Find and capture the briefcase with your payment.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

This mission requires several different skills to complete. First you must be able to dodge moving traffic! The parking lot is now filled with moving cars. If you're hit by a moving car, the mission instantly ends in failure. Navigating the cars is very tough. You can rotate the camera around and try to look for oncoming traffic or just make a mad dash for the other side.

Rotate the camera with the C stick to spot oncoming traffic.

Go to the end of the ramp (adjacent to the truck). At the bottom of the ramp, turn right and cross to the fair staircase. Once up, you have two guards to contend with. Your goal is to reach the pole near this platform's ledge (overlooking the traffic below). You need to climb the pole then swing from the pole to the briefcase. Look for a sledgehammer to the right of the pole for assistance in the ongoing beat down.

Don't worry about the pole initially. Concentrate on the two enemies. Get their energy down. Fight away from the pole so you have some extra time to climb the pole after knocking them down to the ground. Perform some finishing moves on the enemies to keep them down for awhile. If you don't, the enemies could shake the pole while you're climbing and knock you back to the ground. Once up the pole, rotate around so you're facing the briefcase. Press Y to swing at the briefcase. It takes a moment for your character to build the momentum to swing, so lead the briefcase slightly.

Parking Lot Mission 4

Objective: Destroy Vince's big rig truck! Vince is using his big rig truck to deliver his WrestleMania stage materials to the arena. Destroy the big rig by throwing four opponents through the top of it.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

The truck lies near the start position on the previous mission. You must cross the traffic once again to reach the truck. The hard part is there are multiple enemies waiting for you, including a superstar, and they have no trouble ganging up on you.

You have a few options with the truck. You can toss enemies off the ledge down onto the truck and complete the objectives or you can try and do it right on top of the truck. The danger in fighting on top of the truck is that the enemies can toss you into the truck too (with a simple slam, for instance). If you are tossed into the top of the truck, the mission immediately ends in failure.

If you do get down onto the truck, grab the nearest guy and slam him into the truck. You'll end up on a broken part of the truck. You can be slammed here with no consequence. While on the broken truck part, knock down all the enemies but one. When just one enemy is left standing, use the Y button to climb onto the adjacent truck section. Once this enemy joins you on the adjacent section, grab him and perform a simple slam to damage the next part. Repeat until all four parts are destroyed.

Parking Lot Mission 5

Objective: Get rid of security! Throw all of the security personnel into the moving cars.
Time Limit: 15 minutes
Enemies: 10

This is a challenging mission because you'll face three enemies at a time. It can be very difficult to try and get them off the edge and into traffic. Every time you're striking at the hand of a hanging enemy, another enemy is punching you in the back. Work down enemy energy with the sledgehammer and grappling maneuvers. Use finishers to completely weaken one enemy so you can concentrate on the other two. Irish Whip them off the ledge and into traffic. Unfortunately, enemies won't follow you into traffic so don't bother running across to the other side.

Send those enemies off the edge and into oncoming traffic.

Parking Lot Mission 6

Objective: Take out Vince's personal bodyguard!
Time Limit: 10 minutes.

This is the tough final mission of the parking lot set. You'll have to face a random boss character (Vince's personal bodyguard!). Completing the mission unlocks the boss character for play in other game modes. When you begin, you can cross toward the bodyguard via the pole and chains. You'll use a similar swing method from the previous mission where you had to snag the briefcase. Line yourself up with the chains and use the Y button to swing. Wait until the chain moves close to successfully make the leap.

You'll battle enemies in pairs once you reach their location. You must climb the next pole but the enemies will shake the pole and send you falling down if they aren't taken care of. You could use finishing moves to keep them down for longer, giving you enough time to climb the pole or you could start throwing them into traffic. No more will arrive after you have thrown off ten of them.

Climb the pole and cross the chains toward the boss. If you have left any enemies they won't follow you to the boss (they can't cross the chains) so either way it will be a one-on-one battle. After battling so many outnumbered situations, this one-on-one fight should seem easier. Use special moves to weaken the boss and throw him off to complete the mission.

Harbor Mission 1

Objective: Take out all of Vince's security detail in the shipping cell! Throw all of the security guards off of the shipping cell and into the ocean. You will have to destroy one of the fences in order to do this.
Time Limit: 20 minutes
Enemies: 5

You essentially begin in an enclosed cage. Break the fence behind your start position (press the control stick against the fence and use strikes to break it open) to gain access to the edge, which will be your target area to throw off the workers.

Grab the stick just right of the start position and use the weapon for added damage against the workers. Get close to the edge and Irish Whip weakened enemies off. Stomp on their hands if they try to hang on. Subsequent enemies arrive via the pole in the cage's center. Shake it (B button against the pole) and have them fall down into the cage. Use the X button to grab them, then perform a grappling move or just send them on an Irish Whip to the edge.

Harbor Mission 2

Objective: Escape the shipping cell! Break out of the shipping cell. Climb to the top and escape by climbing the chain to the platform.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

This is another escape mission, which means you need to beat down any workers or guards present before trying to escape (in this mission, you must climb a chain). Otherwise the enemies will simply shake the chain while you attempt to climb.

Grab the stick near your start position. Hit the first guard hard with the stick until he's almost spent. While he's on the ground, break the fence in front of your start position. Another guard will arrive from above. He may beat you to the fence; if so, he'll likely bust open the fence to engage you within the cage. Keep beating both guards with the stick until they're almost out. Don't use your finishing move on either of these guards! Just keep wrestling here until they are both near exhausted.

Beat the first two guards senseless before attempting to climb the fence--but don't use your finishing move.

When they're both on the ground, exit the cage through the broken fence and climb the cage's outer surface to the upper level. There's another guard up here. You can try to quickly do a special and go for the chain or just damage him as much as possible and wait for the other two heavily-damaged guards to arrive.

Use special moves to knock out remaining guards. You can also throw them off this top platform, which gives you some extra time (they have to climb back up). When you have damaged all guards, climb the chain to its highest point. The yellow arrow marks the landing spot. Rotate on the chain to face the landing area. Hit the "Y" button while resting still to swing to the landing area, which completes the mission.

Harbor Mission 3

Objective: Take out all of Vince's security detail on the crane platform! Throw all of the security guards off of the crane platform.
Time Limit: 15 minutes
Enemies: 8 enemies

You begin on a narrow bridge; underneath is the sea and a moving platform. Enemies appear from the door on the far side of the platform and arrive two at a time. There's a sledgehammer in the middle of the platform that can be used to damage the enemies.

Run toward the door and battle the enemies close to the door. This is because there's a moving platform underneath your walkway. If an enemy lands on the moving platform after being thrown off the bridge, he won't be eliminated and will return to fight.

Use your special moves to drain enemy energy then Irish Whip the enemy off the side of the bridge. If the enemy tries to regain his balance, use strikes to punch the enemy off.

Harbor Mission 4

Objective: Get to the crate that is being loaded onto the ship! Within the time limit, avoid the security detail and get to the crate. You need to reach this create in time in order to get on Vince's ship.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

This is a challenging mission that requires a combination of speed and brawn. You must run through the shipping area and find a crate destined for Vince's ship. Plus you could have up to three workers (including a superstar) to deal with at the same time.

A worker begins near your start location. Knock him down with strikes or a grapple move. Break the fence with strikes and run up the ramp on the left. When you reach the top, you'll encounter another guard. Instead of running toward the third enemy, a WWE superstar, battle the two guards on this platform (the superstar won't go up here).

Battle these two guards until both are fairly wounded. Don't worry about time; instead, just concentrate on demolishing these two guards. Use nearby weapons for additional damage. Perform a finisher on one once they're both nearly exhausted. Crack the other guy fairly well to keep him down too. Drop down toward the WWE superstar.

Don't approach the WWE superstar too soon. Work on the other two enemies and weaken them significantly before continuing on.

Knock down the superstar with a quick move or a strike combination. Grab one of the wooden crates in the area. Go right (from where you dropped down from) and run up the metal staircase. At the top, toss the wooden crate against the large metal crate (with the A button). When the wooden crate drops to the ground, use the Y button to climb on top of the wooden crate and then the Y button again to climb on the metal crate. This completes the mission.

Harbor Mission 5

Objective: Get rid of the workers on Vince's shipping boat. Throw the workers on the shipping boat into the ocean.
Time Limit: 20 minutes
Enemies: 10

This is a straightforward "toss enemies off the side" mission. There is plenty of time to complete the task so don't feel too rushed. Simply stay near the edge and use your Irish Whip maneuver to toss those enemies over the side. As they hang on the edge, stomp on their fingers with the B button to knock them down into the water. Don't hesitate to take some time weakening these enemies so you can toss them off with less difficulty.

Harbor Mission 6

Objective: Break into the ship's control room! Break down the door to the ship's control room, but watch out for Vince's henchmen.
Time Limit: 10 minutes

You face three enemies in this mission: a standard guard, a WWE superstar, and a random boss character. The guard and WWE superstar begin near your start position and you must deal with them from the mission's beginning. The random boss character remains near the ship's control room door.

Don't rush up to the security room door. Fighting all three characters at full strength is very difficult and it will be hard to get good strikes on the control room door with all three enemies punching you relentlessly. Instead, concentrate on the WWE superstar and guard before rushing up the staircase to the door. Weaken them considerably (ideally with a finishing move) before going up to the boss. Once there, you can begin to work on the boss as the other two will be weaker. Start punching the control room door at every opportunity. The mission ends when the door has been broken.

Chapter 5 - Create a Superstar

This section provides tips on using Wrestlemania XIX's fantastic Create a Superstar mode to create your favorite WWE superstars, yourself, your friends, or anyone else you want to put into the game. As an example, we'll create one of my favorite old school wrestlers, Randy "Macho Man" Savage.

Profile

First begin in the profile section. Here is where you will enter the superstar's name, short name, and nickname. You can also specify what type of superstar he is, either a babyface (good guy) or a heel (bad guy). Let's make him a good guy, back in the old school days when the Macho Man was WWF World Champion.

Name: Randy Savage Short Name: Savage Nickname: Macho Man Type: Babyface

Now shift your focus to the ability section. Here's where you can adjust your superstar's abilities so he or she excels in a particular area. You are given a particular number of ability points to use (you can purchase more in the ShopZone for cash) across all your possible superstars.

You can customize Macho Man any way you wish. His finishing move was the flying elbow drop off the turnbuckle so you will want to add some to the jumping ability to reflect his skill there. If you don't, his flying elbow drop won't be very impressive. If you want Macho Man to really fly, boost the jumping ability to approximately 8.

Adjust Macho Man's abilities however you wish but be sure to increase his jumping ability so you can perform his finishing move in style.

The moves section offers complete customization of the Macho Man's move list. Once again you are free to customize his moves anyway you wish. You can copy the moves of another WWE superstar (if you purchased the move templates from ShopZone) or start creating your own. Make sure you include his patented finishing move in the "Special" list. Select "Special" then "Flying Attack" and then "Attack from Turnbuckle". Select "Diving Elbow Drop 01" for one of his special finishing moves.

Appearance

Now it's time to begin creating Macho Man's appearance. This section will walk you through the various appearance options.

Gender: Male of course.

Hair: Select either Long 03 or Long 08. Make the color very dark brown. One of the brown preset colors is pretty close.

Eyes: Eye shape is fairly open to interpretation. Plus they'll be covered by sunglasses anyhow so don't worry too much. You can also customize the eyelashes and iris color but, once again, they'll be covered by sunglasses!

Eyebrow: Select a standard eye brow with same color as your hair selection. Your sunglasses will cover them anyhow.

Nose: Select Nose 02 or 04.

Mouth: Thin Lips 01.

Mustache: Beard 06 is closest to his old school look. Make the beard and mustache the same color as his hair.

Outline: Face Outline 05.

Now switch over to the "Body Attributes" section.

Body Type: Select Male 01 or 03.

Lower Body: Keep with the short tights. For color, give him one of the pinks (yes this is old school!). Now you should give his shorts a logo. They don't have the "stars" logo often found on his old school outfit but you can use something like Pattern B 17. Just make the color white.

Old school Macho Man didn't shy away from pink short tights.

Create a Superstar - cont.

Gear

Now switch to the "Equipment" section.

Wrist: Use Wrist Band 01 on both wrists and change them to pure white.

Knee: Use Supporter 01 on both knees and change both supporters to yellow.

Shoes: Select Long Boots 02. Change the first color to the same as your knee pads and the third color to pure white.

Now switch to the "Gear" section.

You have a few choices here. You can give him a bandana and pretty much make it have any color you wish (Macho Man loved those bandanas). For his sunglasses, select Goggles 02.

You'll need to change the position of the sunglasses to make them adjust to your head. Switch to position and select "Head". Change the "Z" axis to 0 and the "Y" axis to 10. Now move to the scale selection and change the "X" axis to approximately 10.

Scale

Now switch to the "Scale and Placement" section.

Here you can adjust the scale of Macho Man's features. Make his head a little wider (approximately 10 to 20, whatever looks right to you). You should also widen the shoulders and waist, abdomen, thighs, and calves slightly (approximately 10 each).

Extras

Now switch to the "Entrance" section. Here you can customize Macho Man's theme music, what the screen plays when he enters, the animation and effects. Note that more entrance animation and effects can be purchased from the ShopZone. Unfortunately the game doesn't include Macho Man's classic entrance music, "Pomp and Circumstance," but you may find something to your liking.

Finally, the "Logic" section dictates what type of wrestler Macho Man will be when he's controlled by the artificial intelligence.

Now you have completed your first superstar! Send him in the ring to kick Hulk Hogan's butt once and for all!

Send your creation into the ring and show Hulk 'Mr. Nanny' Hogan who's boss.

Chapter 7 - Secrets

This section reveals some of WrestleMania XIX's secrets, which typically revolve around the new "Revenge" gameplay mode.

Revenge mode is split into four primary sections: construction site, shopping mall, parking lot, and the harbor. Beating the six missions in each unlocks special arenas that become available in exhibition mode.

The sixth and final mission in each Revenge locale features a random boss character. Beating these sixth missions unlocks the boss character for play in other game modes. When you select your superstar, move the cursor over the "Boss" square and cycle through unlocked boss characters.

You unlock a random boss character (whomever you fought in that sixth mission) and there are twenty in all. Here are all twenty boss characters and their corresponding number in the selection area.

1: Agent 001 2: Bartender Bismarck 3: Master Builder 4: Ming Chee 5: Rowdy Smith 6: Agent 002 7: Han Zo Mon 8: Champ Bomber Head 9: Black Widow 10: Agent 999 11: Kim Chee 12: Jigoroh 13: Behemoth 14: Bouncer Jack 15: Sgt. Gregory 16: Victor Romanov 17: Ai Kidou 18: Riki 19: Bacchus 20: Yaksha

Beat the WrestleMania XIX Hall mission in Revenge mode (after beating all the missions in the construction site, shopping mall, parking lot, and harbor) to unlock "EX-Special" moves. These are powerful finishers that require three special move slots to perform. Beating Vince McMahon also unlocks six secret warehouse Revenge mode missions with their own objectives. Complete the warehouse section to unlock another boss character and the warehouse arenas for exhibition mode.

If you beat revenge mode for a second time, you unlock the ability to rotate the camera (using the "C-stick" controller) during certain exhibition matches.

You'll earn money through revenge mode but if you complete the training mode with Al Snow (perform every single move in the training move) you receive $5,000, which can be spent at the ShopZone.
