Last Man Standing
Win a last man standing match by knocking out your opponent. A ref will count to 10; youre victorious if your opponent fails to rise before the 10 count. Pinfalls and submissions arent the path to victory. Heavy damage maneuvers and slams are keys to success. Furthermore, managing your finishers is extremely important. Hold off executing a finisher until you have inflicted decent damage on your opponents head and torso (certainly into the orange damage).
Since you arent going for a pin, theres no advantage in executing a quick finisher on a still-strong opponent. You arent trying to go for a quick pin--youre trying to knock your opponent out. Its going to take some time and a lot of wear down. Stock up finisher icons so you can unleash finishing moves in succession to an already weakened foe. Back off and allow the ref to conduct the 10 count. If your opponent rises, pounce again aggressively and keep up the pressure--and another finisher if available. Taunt to raise your adrenaline meter during down times and dont neglect your clean and dirty tactics. A brief period of invincibility (clean) or a low blow (dirty) is like extra finishers to apply in succession.
Parking Lot Brawl
The parking lot brawl is a new match type in WWE Smackdown vs. RAW. The battle takes place in an arena formed by parked cars and trucks. The area isnt very big but the important element is the cars are like weapons. You can Irish whip your opponent into each vehicle and even perform grapples specific to each.
For example, Irish whip your opponent into the beige car in the lower left corner and your opponent slams onto the windshield (cracking it). Irish whip your opponent into the red car to the beige cars left and the car alarm goes off; the flashing lights disorients your opponent, which gives you the perfect opportunity to execute a high damage maneuver.
The limo on the upper side of the arena offers its share of mayhem. Irish whip your opponent into the limos rear door. When hes against the door, perform a grapple move. Youll open the door and shove your opponent inside the limo. Unknown assailants pummel your opponent inside the limo and shove him back outside. Irish whip your opponent into the limos front door and perform a grapple move to smash his head into the open window. Do it again after the window has been broken to use that same door as a weapon.
Irish whip your foe into the red convertible on the bottom of the arena then perform a grapple move to climb inside and smash your foes head onto the steering wheel. Note the WWE semi on the right side of the arena. You can climb the ladder and perform dive attacks off the top. Be extremely careful, though. If your opponent kicks the truck a couple times and you fall off and onto the concrete below. This inflicts serious, serious all-body damage. Search under the semi for a weapon, namely a sledgehammer!
Keep pressure on your enemy. Irish whip into the variety of vehicles and use grapple moves against all vehicles for special moves or to simply slam your foe or your foes head into the vehicle. Secure the arenas weapon!
The slobber knocker is a special kind of match in which your superstar battles a never-ending stream of WWE superstars and attempts to score as many knockouts within the time limit (if applicable). Finishers are certainly one of the best ways to score a knockout so build your adrenaline meter as quickly as possible. After knocking out an opponent, taunt to build your meter while the next superstar enters the ring.
Theres a high score table that reveals the best slobber knocker scores; one of the WWE Smackdown vs. RAW challenges in the WWE section is to obtain the highest slobber knocker score within the time limit. Have finishers ready to unleash on opponents as soon as they enter. Obviously selecting a wrestler with a quick, easy-to-execute finisher--something along the lines of John Cenas F-U or power bombs and choke slams--will pay dividends. The quicker and easier you can execute, the more bang for your buck and, hopefully, the more wrestlers you knock out under the time limit.
Choose a WWE superstar to be a referee in a special referee match. You can keep the referee computer-controlled or even assume control of the special referee. The square button becomes the "all-purpose" ref button and will count pinfalls and count outs. You can count as fast or as slow as you want!
