    This is most easily done by starting a two player GM career. With control of both shows, you can easily sabotage the competition. Have them sign all the big names to 1 year contracts and trade them for the least popular wrestlers on 5 week contracts. You will have saved loads of money and will bankrupt the other show. Once you have done this, you can breeze through the year by enabling the automated cards and just simulating them all.

    simo949Crappy solution.
    I don't understand a single thing of what to do with all these tabs and sht.
    Should have been explained in more details and not assumed everyone jumping on this can navigate through the tabs from the get go.

    Easy Peasy and Thorough Single Player Guide/Method: (You really don't need two controllers for this)

    - Click Game Modes
    - General Manager Mode
    - New
    - Draft New Rosters
    - Pick Raw
    - In your first slot, choose Triple H for a 1 year contract (Exit the menu and redo this step if Smackdown gets him)
    - In your second slot, choose Chris Benoit for a 1 year contract

    You'll only need two superstars to make this easy for you so don't hire extra stars, if one gets chosen by the other brand just exit and redo this step as stated above.

    Once you have both stars, choose continue.
    - Are you sure you want to leave the draft? click yes.

    - Clean/Dirty Turn: Set Chris Benoit as clean and Triple H as Dirty.

    - Set Champions: Make Benoit the WWE Champion in the first slot, and Triple H as intercontinental champion. (Leave the rest vacant). Continue

    - Are the assigned champions settings ok? Yes

    We are completely done with the first part, easy peasy, now follow closely as this is where you need to focus:

    Click Options
    Matchmaking: Set to Re-run
    Injuries = OFF
    Superstar Morale = OFF
    Exit
    Save - just incase

    Next step

    Click Rosters
    Storyline Writers
    A. Razi -> Undisputed Champion
    Are you sure? YES

    Now exit, and click Schedule

    Click the first day (1st April) RAW, then LB (Changes show to Raw instead of Heat).
    Match 1 = Table Match (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Continue
    Match 2 = Ladder match (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Continue
    Promo 1 = Advertising Promo
    Match 3 = Hardcore Match (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Continue
    Match 4 = Backstage Brawls (Bar Brawl) (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Continue
    Promo 2 = Advertising Promo
    Continue
    Match 5 = TLC Match for the Intercontinental Title (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Continue
    Main Event = Steel Cage Single, NOT Single Pin & Give Up!, for the WWE Championship (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Continue

    Confirm Match Card

    You are about to advance to the show. All decision will be locked. Proceed? YES

    At the bottom you now see Simulate All - Press your button.
    "Simulate results for all matches" YES
    Continue
    Don't bother reading the match results as it will only slow you down.

    You'll repeat this step every week, everything will be the same since we have re-run on but you'll have to manually keep the same advertising promos in every week so keep that in mind. Go to your next Raw week, add back the same advertising promos, confirm and simulate results and continue. Continue doing the same step as stated by adding the same promos until you reach your first PPV (Backlash).

    What to do in PPV?

    Backlash:
    You'll notice you'll have the same setup as Raw. Just change your main event to Hell in a Cell Single for the WWE Championship instead of Steel Cage from our normal setup.

    Vengeance:
    You'll notice you'll have the same setup as Raw. Just change your main event to Hell in a Cell Single for the WWE Championship instead of Steel Cage from our normal setup.

    Summerslam:
    Match 2 = Steel Cage Single (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Match 4 = Ladder Single (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Main Event = Hell in a Cell Single for the WWE Championship (Both stars will come up automatically)

    Unforgiven:
    Match 1 = Hell in a Cell Single for the WWE Championship (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Main Event is an elimination chamber leave this empty and just confirm match card. (You'll slightly dip in the fan support due to leaving elimination chamber empty but don't worry you'll go back up again as if it was nothing).

    Taboo Tuesday:
    You'll notice you'll have the same setup as Raw. Just change your main event to Hell in a Cell Single for the WWE Championship instead of Steel Cage from our normal setup.

    Survivor Series:
    Match 2 = Hell in a Cell Single for the WWE Championship (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Match 4 = Ladder Single (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Main Event = Any of your 2 stars against the other brand star of choice
    It might tell you that you don't have stars or a warning like that just ignore it and proceed.

    New Year's Revolution:
    You'll notice you'll have the same setup as Raw. Just change your main event to Hell in a Cell Single for the WWE Championship instead of Steel Cage from our normal setup.

    Royal Rumble:
    Match 2 = Hell in a Cell Single for the WWE Championship (Both stars will come up automatically)
    Match 4 = Ladder Single (Both stars will come up automatically)

    Wrestlemania:
    You reached the end, I recommend you save now since my game crashed once I reached here haha. Benoit and Triple H contract's have ended, you'll have to renew Benoit and Triple H's contract so make sure you do that in Rosters -> Free Agency -> Benoit (1 Year) and repeat for Triple H (1 year).

    In Matches 1 to 3, just add any of your stars against smackdowns.
    Match 4, your slot, Hell in a Cell Single for the WWE Championship (Both stars will come up automatically).


    Congratulations you have now earned 150 G for your 2 new achievements: Employee Of The Year and New Hire.


    ----------
    In the case of smackdown stealing either Benoit or Triple H during wrestlemania week which is a very rare case that's happened once in my many playthroughs to revise this guide for you, you can hire anyone tough from the free agency, Bobby Lashley for example, and put them against either one (Benoit or Triple H) that's available in the free agency in the Hell of a Cell WWE Championship match, the rest of the matches against smackdown's brand just let your previous star fight against them instead.
    ---------
    Repeated Reminder incase you're reading from the very bottom of this list: once you reach Wrestlemania you'll have to renew Benoit and Triple H's contract so make sure you do that in Rosters -> Free Agency -> Benoit (1 Year) and repeat for Triple H (1 year).

    How do I make sure I'm on track? Go to reports -> Fan Support. You should always be ahead of smackdown. There might be times when you dip but don't stress out if you do you'll always gain the lead again. I recommend you only see this when you reach Wrestlemania, you should be way ahead of Smackdown.

    This achievement took me around 20 minutes to achieve. You really don't need two controllers for this, you're just making the process longer and more tedious than it should be.

    JTYdude99Worked perfectly for me. I think this is the best solution by far.

    What I did for this, was simply the same method for Smackdown vs Raw 08. I started GM mode and drafted a new roster. I picked Shawn Michaels and Rey Mysterio. For the first 3 matches just chose them to fight. Then you click LB to get to the other matches. Match 1 : Hardcore
    Match 2: Intercontinental Championship Tables match
    Match 3: Steel Cage
    Match 4: TLC
    Match 5: First Blood
    Main Event: WWE Championship Backstage Bar Brawl

    Please note you will need to renew their contracts before Wrestlemania. Also you will need to do occasional Promos. What I did was Interference with Shawn, Slander Promotion, and Interview Space with Rey Mysterio.

    Should only take an hourish to do :) Good luck :)
