Hulkamania Runs Wild Era
Andre the Giant vs. Big John Studd
Objective – Win the match in under 6 minutes

Hulk Hogan vs. King Kong Bundy
Objective #1 – Get him Bundy to critical damage and then tap A twice
Objective #2 – Escape over the cage wall
Press LB next to the wall, this will start the cage mini game, press A when it’s at Max to climb the cage, make sure you hit a finisher on Bundy before this because it takes a while.
Ricky Steamboat vs. Randy Savage
