Guide By: Luke Binczyk, GuzzyMe
Welcome to WWE: Legends of WrestleMania. This game lets you recreate or alter dozens of famous fights throughout the history of WrestleMania as well giving you the option of fighting exhibition matches using a roster of wrestling stars from past and present. The achievements can require a little of bit of grinding, but the game can easily be completed in under ten hours. If you’re trying to power through matches as quickly as possible, a turbo controller can speed things up and save your thumb some wear and tear, but it’s not absolutely necessary.
Step One: Create a Legend
Go into the “Create Modes” menu and select “Create a Legend”. The details really aren’t going to affect the gameplay in any significant way, so just go with whatever your personal preference is. This unlocks “Created a Legend”. At this point, you can also go into the “Options” menu, selection “Gameplay Settings”, followed by “Customize Game Settings” and adjust the computer sliders all the way to the left to make the computer fighters much easier. Go back and select “In Game Options” and change the difficulty to easy.
Step Two: Complete Four Legend Tiers
Go into the “Game Modes” and select the “Legend Killer” option to the left. You’ll see a series of statues in front of you. Scroll over to the statue all the way to the left and start Legend Tier One. This is a series of ten fights that you have to win. The easiest way to win a fight is to continually strike your opponent () until their health is completely depleted. This is where having a turbo controller can come in handy. At that point, knock them down and pin them (). You may have to attempt the pin once or twice, but it won’t take long. If you want, you can work on some of the miscellaneous achievements – “Grapplemania”, “Technician”, “Dive Attack” - to keep things interesting. Finishing these ten fights will unlock “New Legend” and “Legend Killer”. If you’ve sped through the fights and finished the tier in under thirty minutes, you’ll also unlock “Super Fast Legend Killer”.
Before starting the second tier, select the central statue to spend your earned experience. You’ll need to max out all your attributes for “Invincible Created Legend”, so start with the attribute that best fits your play style. I focused on maximizing my striking skill first.
At this point, high the second statue from the left and complete Legend Tier Two. This is functionally identical to Tier One. If you didn’t unlock “Super Fast Legend Killer” last time, focus on getting it now. When you finish, spend your experience and tackle Legend Tier Three by selecting the third statue from the left. When you finish, spend your experience again and prepare to tackle the All-Star Legends Tier, which is accessed by selecting the second statue from the right.
Unlike the first three tiers, the All-Star Legend Tier is a slog through thirty-eight different fighters. Use your favorite strategy to rip through the fights as quickly as possible. I stuck with my repeated striking strategy and spammed () with my turbo controller before pinning my opponent. All told, it took a little over an hour and a quarter to finish the whole tier.
Step Three: Exhibition
Head back to the main menu and jump into the Exhibition Mode. The goal here is to complete nine matches with nine different wrestlers – none of whom are your created legend. It doesn’t matter who you pick, so just have fun. The only caveat is that you’ll eventually fight these guys with your created legend, so you might want to pick low-rated fighters. This is also a great time to start knocking out some of the miscellaneous achievements. Scan through the guide below and see what you still have to unlock.
Step Four: The Favorite Legends Tier
Go back into the menu with the statues and select the third statue from the right to access the Favorite Legends Tier. Once again, win the ten matches and you’ll be finished with the Career Mode! This will unlock “King of Kings”. This should also unlock “True Legend Killer”. The last remaining statue is only available if you’ve imported a Smackdown vs Raw 2009 save file.
Step Five: Relive, Redefine, Rewrite
The final step is to go through the WrestleMania Tour Mode, accessed by selecting the video screen in the center of the room when you select “Game Modes”. There are three different classes of matches and you need to meet specific criteria for each one of them to unlock gold medals. See the guide below for information on each matchup. Completing all the matches in all three categories with gold medals will unlock “First Medal”, “Medal Collector”, and “WrestleMania Tour”. Focus on winning at least one Relive match without ever hitting the pause button so you can unlock “Memory Serves Me Well”.
Step Six: Mop Up
By this point you should have most, if not all, the achievements unlocked. Check the guide for details on completing anything that you still have left to do. Congratulations on finishing the game!

|Win a match using a Chain Struggle|
Keep doing moves / until you get to Level 3 chain struggle. You can do this in any match type except for Tag Team/Royal Rumble and the opponent does not have to be in red, but it makes it easier. You do not need to pin straight after you do the move - you just have to perform it using / when your opponent is groggy.
To make this easier you should use The Undertaker against Honky Tonk Man.
|Tag Chain Struggle||30|
|Win a match using a Tag Chain Struggle||(8)|
Keep doing moves / until you get to Llevel 3 chain struggle. You can only do this in the Tag Team match type and the opponent does not have to be in red, but it makes it easier. As you Irish Whip your opponent (Press + away from opponent) into your corner, your teammate should help you out, and should enable you the chance to start a Tag Chain Struggle. When you pin the opponent your partner will distract the other opponent.
To make this easier you should use The Undertaker & Hulk Hogan against Honky Tonk Man & Michael Hayes
|Win a match using only grapple attacks||(1)|
Only use the button attacks. You can do this in any match type except Royal Rumble. This is easiest to do in a "Hell In a Cell" match type. Just get your chain struggle to Level 3 then Irish Whip your opponent ( plus in opposite direction of your opponent). Throw them out of the cell by pressing the button which highlights and then climb down and pin them.
To make this easier you should use The Undertaker against Honky Tonk Man.
*NOTE* Finishers will wreck this.
|Win by using five or more reversals in a single match||(1)|
In the match, when an opponent throws a punch at you, or attempts a move, you can attempt to reverse the move by pressing + away from your opponent. This achievement is a little confusing. Some reversals you do - blocking a punch, and throwing one yourself - don’t seem to trigger a reversal, even though the commentators pick up on it. One it does pick up on though, is a knee to the gut, so if you hit that, you know it’s going to count. You don’t get this in the middle of the match, so you’ll have to count them yourselves, and you will get it at the end of the match.
|Royal Rumble Winner||90|
|Win a 30-Man Royal Rumble||(7)|
Pick Undertaker and choose the entry order to 30. To eliminate an opponent you have to Irish Whip ( plus opposite direction to your opponent) and when they are holding on to the ropes press whatever button highlights. If you get eliminated, you can restart and try again.
|Successfully perform a dive attack from all four corners||(1)|
To get onto a turn buckle hold the to the turn buckle then press and then to jump off making sure you hit your opponent. Repeat this on each of the corners. The achievement unlocks Mid-Match, so you can just quit out if you want.
|Obtain a medal in WrestleMania Tour Mode||(1)|
The first medal you will get in the Wrestlemania Tour Mode depends completely on the order you plan to do it, but I recommend starting with the hardest. Start off with ‘Relive’. The first medal you will get will be from Hulk Hogan vs. King Kong Bundy. You need to earn 50 out of 90 points to achieve a gold medal.
- Trading Rights: Win the chain battle at the start of the match (10 points).
- Busted Wide Open: Whip King Kong Bundy into the cage (+ away from opponent – he’ll go into the cage and bleed straight away) (20 points).
- Keep Bundy Caged: Get up whilst King Kong Bundy tries to escape via the door (Press as fast as you can before Bundy reaches his point of escape) (10 points).
- Stop Bundy Again: Repeat ‘Keep Bundy Caged’ (20 points).
- Full Power Leg Drop: Execute Hulk Hogan’s finisher (+) (20 points).
The Great Escape: Win the match by escaping the cage via climbing out of it (Press )
|Obtain all of the medals in WrestleMania Tour Mode||(7)|
You have to do everything in Rewrite, Redefine, and Relive and get enough points to get gold on each match.
See “First Medal” for the help on the first match (Hulk Hogan vs. King Kong Bundy).
- Body Splash!!: Execute Warrior’s Finisher (Press + when prompted, to execute Warrior’s finisher – you do have to press buttons at the right time to achieve this though) (10 points).
|Clear all "Relive" matches in WrestleMania Tour Mode||(2)|
|Just win all relive matches. You do not need a medal, so just get a finisher and end the match quickly.|
|Memory Serves Me Well||30|
|Complete any match without pausing in the "Relive" section of WrestleMania Tour Mode||(2)|
You CAN NOT pause at ALL or you will have to start again you have to do this in relive mode - you can not do it in redefine. Just use moves / and then get a finisher and use it by pressing the chain commands. You do not need a gold medal to do this and you can do it in any relive match.
|Defeat 10 opponents with a Created Legend in a single tier in Legend Killer Mode|
Beat all ten opponents in any tier on Legend Killer mode - you'll get this just by working through it as you have to beat all ten in one tier to unlock the next one anyway.
|Obtain a medal in Legend Killer Mode|
|*See True Legend Killer for details*|
|True Legend Killer||100|
|Obtain all of the medals in Legend Killer Mode||(6)|
You don't need to do the tier that has the imported roster from Smackdown vs Raw 2009. You just need to do tiers 1-3, Favorite Legends Tier, and the All-Star Legends Tier. All tiers are a gauntlet match with 10 opponents except for the All-Star Legends Tier, which is a gauntlet match with 38 opponents! It may take 25-35 minutes.
|Invincible Created Legend||30|
|Max out a Created Legend's attributes||(3)|
You will gain XP during Legend Killer mode that can be used to increase the stats of your created legend. When you go to the screen with the legend statues where you can select your tier, choose the middle statue to get into the screen to spend the XP on stats. It will take four or five tiers worth of XP to get your created legend up to maximum stats
|Super Fast Legend Killer||90|
|Become a Legend Killer in Legend Killer Mode in 30 minutes or less||(5)|
|This just takes a bit of patience. The first two tiers I did in Legend Killer mode I finished in about 32 minutes each, but I increased the stats of my created legend after each using the XP I'd earned. When I did the third tier it only took me 25 minutes because I had an overall rating of 70.|
At the start of the match while you're Level 1, simply punch your opponent to the floor and stomp him when he's down. This is the quickest way to build your 'bar' up to Level 2. Once you reach level 2, instead of punching your opponent down, suplex him, then beat him down while on the floor. I find this works best as it builds your bar quickest, but also does a decent amount of damage. Once you hit level 3, nail your finisher and pin him.
|Have your Created Legend reach the Top rank in Hall of Fame Mode||(2)|
Just win about 1 to 5 matches with your created superstar. He must have the most wins in your total matches played. If you've already played a bit, it doesn't matter because once you complete Legend Killer Mode you will have heaps of wins. If not, then just play exhibition matches until you get it
|Created a Legend||20|
|Make a Created Legend|
Just go to create modes and choose "Create a Legend" or you could import from Smackdown Vs Raw 2009 and that will also count.
|Win a match using a manager in an Exhibition match||(1)|
Go to exhibition and choose singles. Choose Hulk Hogan as he has the best stats and go against the Honky Tonk man.
|King of Kings||90|
|Defeat the Favorite Legends Tier in Legend Killer Mode||(3)|
Play the Wrestlemania Tour Mode. Complete rewrite redefine and then you do two tiers in legend killer mode. You will have unlocked this tier as you must win with ten characters in these modes. You can also unlock this tier by doing exhibition matches.
