Put opponent through tables
Even though there is not an official table match, you
can plow your opponent's head through one. At most of the ring
sides, you will find Jr and the Kings' announcement table. Go
to it and climb it as if it were the ring. Get your opponent to
go up (he will follow you) and make any move that either he alone
or both of you fall and the table is history.
In the Locker Room backstage area, there is a table you can slam
opponents through just like the announce table.
In the Bar backstage area, there is a billiards table you can
slam opponents through.
Leave the screen (into a different "stage") and return
-- the tables are back and can be broken again.
You can jump on a opponent and break a table. For example, if
Jeff is laying on a table, jump and do the 450 Splash and break
them through the table. Put a Handicap or Triple Threat match
with two human players. In a ladder match put the CPU down on
the table with back scratches and other weak moves. After he is
down, jump off and do a heavy move such as the 450 Splash. If
done correctly you will break them right through the table.

Recommended creation moves
The juke box
The cage in backstage areas
Gauges on the walls
The door in the garage
The cage (Press [C-Right] in a grapple and you will grab
his head and drag him into the cage. Another good way to do that
is in an Irish whip; wait for your opponent to bounce back at
you, then quickly press [L] to jump out of the way. He will
go directly into the cage.
All of the good moves are powerbombs, or moves that
have people land on their back. When you create a character, try
to have a lot of slam moves. The Last Ride, Jackhammer, or Superpowerbomb
are very good moves. The Superpowerbomb and the Swanton Bomb are
a good combination.

(created or default characters both work). Go to the SmackDown
Mall to edit your chosen wrestler. Set his or her weight at 599
lbs. and all the rest of the default wrestlers at 100 lbs. When
they try to set you up for a Powerbomb, Suplex, or counter into
one of those moves, they will have a very difficult time picking
you up. When they fail at lifting you, it adds more to your attitude
Championship mode: Full win
In order to win a championship, you must complete it
once perfectly. After that, use a combination of wins and losses
to change the story. You must do each possible combination.
Championship mode: Easy win
To win easily in championship mode, save the game and
go to edit a character. Put who you are fighting next in your
career as a super heavyweight and return to championship mode.
Continue your career. When you are fighting your opponent, keep
body slamming him. It will be difficult because he or she is a
super heavyweight, but for each body slam you will get a lot of
attitude, which results in quicker specials.
Championship mode: Avoiding losses
If you are about to lose in a championship, simple
press [Start] and select "Quit" to start again.
Championship mode: No count out
Select any title then start a match. Throw your opponent
outside the ring, then beat them until the count is on 16. Throw
them backstage, then throw them back. The count will restart.
Championship mode: More RTC members
Change any wrestler's music and video to Steven Richards.
Also, it helps to change their shirt to the RTC shirt. Then, while
wrestling in championship, that new RTC member may appear and
challenge you, and talk just like a RTC member.
Survival mode: Limits
Although the instruction manual states that the game
goes on until you are defeated in survival mode, there are only
a total of 99 wrestlers plus yourself in this mode. For example,
you can win survival mode by defeating 88 opponents and the CPU
defeating 11 opponents. Note: Andre the Giant is the last wrestler
to appear in survival mode.
Survival mode: Easy win
Select someone with The Spear. Enter Survival Mode
with them and throw your opponent into the ropes. Run to them
and Spear them. Then, use Strong Attack and keep repeating.
Easy win in any match
When playing in any match, throw your opponent outside
the ring and slap on a submission. Do this repeatedly, and make
sure it is the same submission. Eventually your opponent will
tap out, but since you are not in the ring, it will not end. Simply
throw your opponent in the ring and slap on the same submission.
They will tap out after about two seconds. This is especially
useful for matches with Rope Breaks (you will notice the CPU slides
rather unfairly and quickly towards the ropes. This is also useful
in a Cage Match. Do this same process and when they tap out, leave
them and climb the cage. By the time you are out of the cage and
have won the match your opponent should still be unconscious on

sometimes helps to do a weak grapple (press [A]) and throw
them out of the ring by pressing the D-pad towards the
direction of the ropes and pressing and [C-Up]. Then, quickly
start taunting. You can do this repeatedly until you get your
special. This trick is very useful in handicap matches.

game will send you through a series of Tag-Team matches. The only
difficult part of the chapter is a Handicap Match and a Submission
Move towards the ropes
This trick is useful if you are doing a submission
in the ring and your opponent gets the rope break by unfairly
moving towards the ropes quickly. In any match where rope breaks
are allowed, when your opponent starts a submission on you, tap
the "C-buttons" as fast as possible. Then if you are in a
position where you still cannot reach the ropes (for example,
if you are approaching the ropes but are in a position where your
opponent is by the ropes, not letting you get the break, such
as in a Sharp Shooter), rapidly press the D-pad in the
direction you want to turn.
No title holder for all single championships
Enter a Royal Rumble with 40 wrestlers and choose the
"Select" option. Only choose pin fall, submission, and
the ring out "No". This match can be for any single
title, mainly the WWF Championship. Your player must be the current
champion in your game. Go through the match, but have the wrestler
lose, but not with the final four wrestlers. With the final four
wrestlers, lose again, but not with the last two wrestlers. When
the match is over, check the champion. Only The Rock's picture
will be there, and no name. This means that there is no champion,
and you will have to do a match to decide the next champion.
Different default champions
The game's default champions are :WWF: Triple H, IC:
Chris Benoit, European: Eddie Guerrero, Hardcore: Crash, Tag Team:
Edge and Christian, Lightheavyweight: Dean Malenko, and Womens:

exhibition mode yet, you can change the default champions by selecting
one in championship mode.
2 on 1 or ladder mach: Easy win
Throw your opponent into the turnbuckle, do a strong
grab, and press [L]. You should then turn your opponent upside
down, then pin the other person, or climb the ladder.
2 on 1 match: Easy win
When you are fighting in a 2 on 1 match, it is easy
to win by throwing one of your opponents outside the ring and
doing all the moves to the other opponent. Then, when you get
your special, do it twice to the person who you were beating up
the most, and once to the other person. This will allow you to
pin the other person, who should be in danger or losing it.
Go to the parking lot and jump into the back of the WWF truck.
Taunt until you have a special -- your opponents will not go into
the back of the truck. Then, jump out and give both players your
finishers. Note: This only works in a "No Count Out"
If you are in a 2 on 1 match against two CPU players, go to the
turnbuckle and press [C-Down] to get on it. Taunt twice with
the Analog-stick, then press [R]. Go to another turnbuckle
and repeat. Note: If the CPU players constantly throw you off,
or rack 'em up on you, try a different strategy

(TAB), press [L] + [R] + [B]. Keep pressing those
buttons to climb the cage or ladder faster.
Cage match: Easy win
At the beginning of the match, climb in the corner

shake the cage until you have won.
Beat your opponent down, and when he is at danger, perform the
"Tree of Woe". Let him sit there and climb the cage.

pressing [R], [L] when someone tries to knock you off
to avoid falling. Note: If you do not make it to the top, you
will lose a lot of power.
Select the expert difficulty setting and choose any wrestler.
As soon as the match starts, move towards the turnbuckle closest
to you and press [C-Up] to climb the ladder. If done correctly,
your opponent should run towards you, but shake the other part
of the cage allowing you to go up the ladder. Also, you can stay
on the cage as long as needed, until your spirit goes to dark
blue or danger.

You will now be in the billiard room. When you enter the room,
there will be a dart board. Slam your opponent's head into the
dart board by pressing [A] + [C-Down]. The moment he
hits the board, he will fall and start bleeding. Note: This does
not work with women wrestlers.
First, beat your opponent badly in the ring, but do not make him
bleed. Next, throw him in the billiard room. When you do this,
you will find a dart board on the the wall. Give your opponent
three good face smashes on it by grabbing him with [A] +
[C-Right] and he will start bleeding instantly! Note: This
does not work with woman wrestlers.
30 minute Ultimate Submission match

30 minutes and have the only way to win is by submission and no
count out, not hardcore and no DQ.
Hardcore match: Easy hits
To get easy hits in a hardcore match, go to the stage.

special twice, then your opponent on the table. Quickly press

yourself as the ref, and the title that you want. This will put
the champion against a player that you choose. Choose the weak
created wrestler and start the match. When the created wrestler
pins the champion, do a fast count to give him the win and the
title. Then, fight the created wrestler in an exhibition match
with the wrestler you want to be the champion, and defeat the

him. That should end the match.
Press [C-Left] to pull out a weapon from the audience.
Then, press [C-Left] again.
This trick works with any match that involves pins
and submissions. Its very useful in championship mode when you
have to lose matches in order to progress the different story
lines. Hold the Analog-stick in any direction when your
opponent has you in a submission hold or pin. You will submit
or get pinned on the first try. The submission takes a little
longer, but will work on the first try nonetheless.
When a person interferes in your match, throw that
person out of the ring about twenty seconds later and they will
not get back in.
When interference comes to the ring, do a strong grapple on the

move off of the turnbuckle on the interference. The interference
will walk right out.

up. Do your taunt at the same time and simultaneously press [A].
The resulting move will resemble the El' Con Chair-O.
Jeff Hardy: Swanton Bomb off ladder
This is done easiest with two players, as opposed to
one and the CPU. Have player one be Jeff Hardy, and player two

announce table. Grab your opponent and lay him on top of the table.
After rolling him, hold [Analog-stick Down] on controller

first time, throw him in the ropes and Hard Strike him -- you
will be able to lift him after that.
Throw a person out of the ring. When the person is out of the
ring, start to taunt him. He will loose more attitude and you
will gain more attitude. Stay away from the ropes because he may
grab you. When he gets back in the ring, throw him out again.
Keep repeating this until you have your special.
Multiple ringside tables
Start a Hardcore or No Count match. When you break
the table at ringside, throw your opponent backstage where the
Titantron is located. Then, throw them back to the ring. When
you get back the ringside table will be there.

in it, then leave the room. Return into the room and the table
should reappear. Note: This only works in backstage arenas.

Pressing more than any three buttons and [Start] simultaneously.
This also may cause potential memory card damage.
Editing Superstar uniforms and using them in Championship mode.
The game will work as normal until before a championship match.
Wrestlers will be reset to default uniforms and all data will
Holding [Z] and tapping any other button has also caused
memory loss in certain situations.
Playing as a created wrestler in Championship mode can cause the
game to lock-up and the potential loss of the wrestler.
Memory card usage may not go through. The game will tell you it
saved, but when game is turned off, data will not be saved or
it will be lost on the cartridge.
Pressing [L] + [R] + [Z] + [Start] results
in instant data loss without warning.
Unplugging a controller during game play (whether using a memory
pak or not) results in data loss.
To help prevent data from being randomly deleted, whenever you
save something (a custom wrestler, championship progress, options,
etc.) turn off the Nintendo 64, wait a few seconds, then turn
it back on. This seems to severely limit the chances of your data
being automatically erased.
While doing a championship for the lightweight belt
, HHH will come out at Wrestlemania and say "We are a few
weeks away from Wrestlemania" -- even though he is at Wrestlemania.
Glitch: Kane fire taunt
In the opening sequence, Kane does his in-ring fire
taunt by quickly raising his arms instead of lowering them.
Glitch: Choke Hold
The upper body ground move "Choke hold" is
not a submission despite, how it appears on the move list. Your
opponent will not tap out due to it.
Glitch: Jumping Axe Kick
When using the Jumping Axe Kick against an opponent
in the turnbuckle, the game generally will experience a fatal
error after two or three kicks.
Glitch: Flying wrestler
You can make your wrestler fly around the stadium.
First, make him or her the special guest referee. Hold "Analog-stick
Up", [Left], or "Right. "While holding the Analog-stick,
press [C-Left]. If done correctly, he or she will begin to
shake then move off the ring into the air. Keep Analog-stick
+ [C-Left] held and he or she will go into the crowd. However,
sometimes if you go very far the game will freeze. Note: This
can also work when you are a guest referee in backstage areas.
Grab your opponent's back with a while he is turned. Then, press
[C-Up] and have your tag team partner to grab the ladder.
While he is picking the opponent up on his shoulders, immediately
hit your partner with the ladder. If done correctly, your opponent
Have a created wrestler with the taunt set to 196. Knock your
opponent out of the ring, then taunt while against the ropes.
Do a strong move and you should be flying.
This is a lot easier to do with two players. This trick can be
done in any ring. Climb the right front turnbuckle. Have the other
person throw him off by pressing [A]. When the person falls,
he slides under the ropes and walks on air.
Choose a ladder match, select Jeff Hardy, then start the match.
Get the ladder, then go near the announcer table and lead your
opponent on to it. Next, jump off and set the ladder up. Climb
it and then make sure your opponent is still up on the table.
Give him a Swanton and he will fly off, but still be in mid-air.
Glitch: Move anywhere
Start a guest referee match as the referee. Get the
announcer table and press [C-Left] + Analog-stick
in any direction. Your wrestler will start to shake. Let him keep
shaking until he gets off the table, then make him run. He will
go any where in the arena, on the crowd, and through the other
players. The other players cannot hurt you most of the time, but
you can hurt them. Note: The game may freeze if you go too far.
After you can move anywhere, go to the center of the ring and
allow another wrestler to do a big move, such as a power bomb,
on you. You will fall through the ring and stay under it until
you move near the edge. This can only be done once because when
the big move is done on you, the table will break as you go under
To move through the mat, go on the announcer table and enable
the cheat. Go into the ring and let someone do a strong grapple
to you. If done correctly, you will fall through the mat like
you would through the announcer table. The announcer table will
disappear and you will become smaller. Note: You will have to
stay in the ring after doing the cheat. When you are in the ring
they would have to do a move as if they were putting you through
As a special referee, is get on the table and press "Taunt"
and the button counts 1-2-3 simultaneously. You will start to
flinch. Wait until you go off the table while flinching. You can
now "fly". Go back to the table to stop "flying".
When "flying", they can still pull you off as if you
where on the table. If the opponent throws you, you cannot stop.
You will go off up towards the cheap seats before the game freezes.
Glitch: Running in the crowd
When you are in a ladder match TKO your opponent on
the table until he or she is at "Losing It". Then, set
up the ladder in front of the table and do a high flying move,
such as body splash, from the ladder. Once you do the move you
should be standing in the middle of the table. Just run into the
black guard rail and you should be able to run around the crowd.
Glitch: No countdown with Chris Jericho
When Chris Jericho is challenging or defending a title,
and he comes to the ring first, there is no countdown.
Glitch: Missing defeated wrestler
Win a match with somebody that has a sequence afterwards,
such as Kane in the ring fire taunt. During the sequence the wrestler
that was defeated is not in the ring.
Glitch: Mini wrestlers
Go to a Guest Referee match and go out of the ring.
Press "Analog-Stick Up", "Analog-Stick Left", or "Analog-Stick
Right" + [C-Left]. Your wrestler should be shaking towards
the ring. Once your wrestler is in the ring, release. Your wrestler
will now be small. You can move in the ring, but cannot attack.
To get out, just leave the ring.
Glitch: Have Manager grab briefcase or
Fight on the outside, then grab the controller three
and hold [C-Up] + [C-Down] + [Z] to fight with
your manager. Once you are the manager, slide into the ring and
climb the ladder. Press [B] (even though the game does not
prompt for it) and "You've got it!" will appear. Your
manager's music will play with a replay on him. However, it will
not count as a win.
Glitch: Early replay bleeding
Make someone bleed just before you win the match. The
replay at the end will show him or her bleeding before he actually
started bleeding during the game.
It is easiest to see early replay bleeding in a First Blood match
because the match ends as soon as you opponent bleeds.
Glitch: Rikishi replays
Select Rikishi, get your special, and do the Banzi
Drop. It will be shown five times instead of three.
Set the replay option on. Select Rikishi and beat him until he
stays down for a long time. Then, do the Banzai Drop. If he is
in the right position, you will see three replays, then you will
seem to hit him again and it will replay again. Note: This may
require a few attempts.
Glitch: Disappearing blood
Make your opponent bleed, then use the Fireball attack
(bought from SmackDown! Mall) on them. The blood will be replaced
with a burn mark.
Glitch: Bleed more than once
Start a First Blood match as the guest referee. Hit
one of the contenders with the stairs or another weapon until
they bleed. They will react to the blood as normal but will not
get a TKO. Hit them some more with the weapon and they will react
again (put their hand on their face, see blood, and fall down).
However, the amount of blood on their face does not change.
Glitch: First blood match
Do a First Blood match. Make it a Hardcore match and
set all the options to "No" and make it "First
Blood". Make your opponent bleed. When you do, the game will
display "TKO" even though that option was set to "No"
in the rules.
Glitch: Parking lot area
When you do a royal rumble with Hard Core rules and
pin, submission, TKO or First Blood on, go into the parking lot.
Throw your opponent into the truck. You should now be in the truck/semi.
Pin your opponent, knock them out, or whatever. Afterwards the
clock will not count down and your defeated opponent will just
stand there, but you cannot execute any moves on them.
This trick will only work on Guest Referee matches. Go in the
parking lot and get in the back of the big truck. Hold [Analog-stick Left] + [C-Left]. The referee will start shaking, then
you will be floating above the parking lot and can run around
Glitch: Levitate in tag team ladder match
Start a tag team ladder match and begin climbing the
ladder with one character. As the first character is climbing,
have another character approach and try to move the ladder. Have
the second character put the ladder somewhere else. At first,
the first character will be climbing in mid-air. Once the ladder
is moved, they will jump to the ladder while still levitating
and land on the ladder backwards.
Glitch Immovable ladder
Give a created wrestler The Worm as his celebration
taunt. After they fall off the ladder when they win, they will
do The Worm straight into the ladder, and neither the wrestler
or the ladder will move.
Glitch: Championship mode
In WWF Championship Mode, when you start as the champion
and win all of your matches through chapter nine, you will fight
in a Fatal Four match between you, Richards, The Rock, and Mick.
On the vs. screen, the message will read that you have to win,
However, if you lose, you will go on to face and unlock Shawn
Glitch: IC championship mode
Start as a new wrestler. Lose your first match. Go
out with the Ho and defeat Val. The ladder mach vs. Edge must
be won, even though the game states that you may win or lose.
Play in the Intercontinental championship and on the last match
you will fight Shane and Vince McMahon for the title. Get a special
and do Shane McMahon's special on Shane. The game will freeze
and you will have to start the match again.
Glitch: WWF Women's title
Play for the WWF Women's title and get 100% without
being Val Venis. When you get your 100%, go back to the Women's
Championship and look at the person who you won it with. He or
she will have the belt. Then, look at Val Venis. He also has a
Glitch: Women referred to as men
In championship mode play as a women wrestler in any
title except Women's. During intermission scenes, other wrestlers
will refer to you as a man. For example, saying "I want you
to beat him good".
Start a championship for the heavyweight title and lose your first
match to Taka, then win all the other matches. After awhile you
will see women talking as if they were married to each other.
Note: For this to work correctly, the champion must be a woman
when you start.
Glitch: Men referred to as women
Select a man to be your wrestler when going for the
Women's Title. Occasionally, your opponent will refer to you as
a woman. For example, Ivory says," I will expose your puppies
in this ring".
Glitch: Tazz's shirt
Look at Tazz's fourth costume. The color is yellow,
Glitch: Triple H referred to as Chris Jericho
Let the starting credits play through at the opening
sequence. When it highlights Triple H, his picture will be that
of Chris Jericho.
When playing a hardcore championship, defend the title
then lose the next match. That person (Kurt Angle) will have an
interview with Michael Cole later and he will say "I'm never
gonna loose this title" instead of "I'm never gonna
lose this title".
Glitch: Switched championship dialogue
When two wrestlers come out to the ring together in
championship mode, the one who talks enters on the right. When
he starts talking, he now talks from the left.
Glitch: No opponent
Start the game in championship mode and defend the
WWF championship as Cactus Jack (start game as champ). When Mankind
turns into Cactus (in the Transformation chapter), instead of
turning into Cactus he disappears. When you start the match there
is no opponent, just you and your partner.
Glitch: Invisible ropes
When you are in any match and you and your opponent
are on the table, throw your opponent off the table by grappling
and pressing [C-Up]. Tt would seem that there are invisible
