    • Shawn

      You have to set the table up in the corner, then use your finisher as Dogg is standing in front of the table.

      • Ryan

        You dont HAVE to set the table up in the corner, I set it up out side the ring and when I had finisher was able to pick him up and turn around while he was up in the air and then slammed him threw the table. If you are still having trouble try that Road Dogg will follow you out of the ring so knock him down so you can pull a table out and set it up first. Then a pose should wake him up and bring him to you. Good luck.

  • Fred Vogel

    For the liontamer, be at their feet and press Y/triangle as a FINISHER (yes, you have to get 2 finishers to complete the task in 5 min).

      Press Triangle when you have a finisher at your disposal. If you move the thumb stick while pressing it, he does the Tombstone Piledriver. Just make sure to press the button by itself.

        Wait for the WWE Attitude moment to present it’s self then just hit the button it tells you too. It’s actually really easy to do. Just like doing an OMG Moment set them up in the stop for it with a finisher stored and hit the finisher button. Works every time.

    wwe 13 is a rip off.it claims the biggest roster ever but u have to spend your life doing a bunch of retarded shit to unlock the roster.thats not what i paid for i paid for the roster not the headache….

    • Matt

      I felt the same way at first, but then I really got in to it as I grew up in the days of Macho Man and Hulk Hogan, and then attitude era. This game kicks serious ass. It not only teaches what made wrestling what it is today, but it teaches the new generation who were born after it exactly what went on and how it happened. Jason… If you’re pissed off that it’s challenging you can head over to Walmart, I heard they have a sale on tampons, but in my opinion this is the best wrestling game released… ever. The only down fall is that they blur out the WWF logo and never say WWF. If they hadn’t done that, this would be the most epic wrestling game of all time to date.

      • Matt Sucks Balls

        Wow, Matt. You’re a real piece of shit. He doesn’t want to spend all of his free time unlocking characters. Learn to read dumb fuck.

        • http://YourMom.com People Got To Learn.

          Bro, Hes just lazy. Its fucking easy to get every superstar, he just don’t know how to do it! Not even you, your probably stuck with the same unlocked characters defaulted to be played.
