    Be prepared to bore yourself senseless.

    What I did was try to get either through either the WWE Tag Titles or the Hardcore championship line-ups. They were usually the 2nd or 3rd choice for me (it depends on who you pick, I think, but not by much). Doing so will unlock the Tables match.

    Abuse the tables match for damn near every match, except Number one contender matches, in which you're stuck doing whatever match they want of you. But one match out of 5 or 6 ain't bad. And tables matches go by ridiculously quickly. Just earn the star amounts you need to move on, and do so. I always tried to 5 star my first match, 4 star the second, and then you can half ass the last two and the championship match.

    It's tedious. It's boring. You can do it legit if you want, but I found this to be THE fastest way.

    Also, if you want, you can knock out two more achievements. You can get the Gold Rush (all championships won) by starting a woman's career, winning the belt, saving, backing out, and restarting a career as a male. Then just play through EVERY week to get the A Year in the Life one as well, while making sure you win every belt possible. Then cement yourself as a legend.

    When defending your belt, I'd avoid the WWE and World Heavyweight title line-ups. Hell, Unless you're going for the Gold Rush, I'd avoid those two altogether. I always stuck with the two tag lines, hardcore, ECW, US,and IC titles. Never failed me.

    Well, that's it for me. Sorry to blabber on. :-p

    R MatthewsonUse table matches ASAP.

    Lean the table in the corner, get a finisher, put you opponent through the table will give you minimum 3 stars, sometimes 4.

    Lean the table in the corner, get a finisher, use the finisher, get a second finisher and put you opponent through the table with give you definite 4 stars.

    I tend to go for the ECW title first to unlock Extreme Rules. Now you can grab the ladder, which not only does ridiculous damage and builds your momentum quickly, it also doesn't "disappear". Just knock your opponent senseless (Don't knock them out the ring though, just wait if they are on the ropes), hit a finisher, then repeat for another 1-2 finishers. There's no rope breaks either, so don't worry about that when going for a pin. The only time I tend to use table matches are for title matches, since star ratings don't matter.

    Pick someone on the ECW roster to start you off there, then work on the IC and US, then Cruiserweight and Hardcore, and finally one of the tag belts. When it asks for the next path pick the other tag belt, the AI gets ridiculously annoying for the top tier belts. Then just defend any belt you have 3 times and that's one Legend down. Also take note that getting at least 4* ratings in tag matches takes more time. I've hit 5+ finishers and a burning table finisher and still only gotten 3*.

    All you have to do is win the belts throughout the career(Hardcore, US, IC, ECW, Cruiserweight, and either the WWE Tag or Heavyweight Tag Belt.) Once you unlock one of the Tag belts, the Defend Championship option is therefore unlocked. Just simply defend the any belt 3 times (I would do any of the first belts you've obtained due to the difficulty of the opponent increasing, they counter like a mo-fo!) And then a pop-up screen states that you are now a hall of famer.

    At this point, you must do it 4 more times and wah-lah! 100G for ya. Also, i would recommend doing this with the other career cheevo's all at once due to time issues. I made the mistake of going for them all with the CAW and i just finished Wrestlemania PPV and a different pop-up came up saying i am a legend or something like that....but this wasn't the actual HOF thing. You MUST defend a title 3 times and then it counts as a HOF. Just to make sure

    IF you need to be totally sure who has been inducted, you can go to MY WWE and then select roster editor and scroll through all the superstars and near their picture their will be a HOF logo.
