TIPS AND TRICKS

To watch two computer controlled opponents go at it, hold down Button X and select Exhibition (second option of the main menu) in either Single or Tag Team match. Choose a wrestler(s) while still holding X, then pick controller 2 to select the other wrestler(s). When done correctly, the selected wrestlers will be controlled by the computer.

There are three wrestlers who aren't normally usable, these are:

Ittetsu Wakamoto = Kotetsu Yamamoto (New Japan Pro Wrestling)
Rikiouzan = Rikidozan (Japan Wrestling Association)
B.G. Bull = Bruiser Brody (All Japan Pro Wrestling)

You can play as each of them in World Championship mode by doing the following. Hold the L Button and highlight the fourth option of the main menu. Select it with B, and a window will appear at the bottom right. Press Y. The game highlights the first option (World Championship) press Start, then select either Single or Tag with Start button. The wrestler select screen will appear with the three additional wrestlers available. To play as these characters in any mode other than World Championship and the Dojo, simply hold L and press Start until you reach the wrestler select screen.
