What’s going on readers this week, for Retro Sunday I will be covering, WWE SmackDown ! Shut Your Mouth. This game was awesome back in day 15 years ago to be exact. It was released in Europe 15th of November 2002. The season mode was lengthened to two in-game years and features the Brand Extension featuring Ric Flair’s Raw and Vince McMahon’s SmackDown! For the first time, only WWE superstars could participate in “season mode”.

Gamers compete exclusively on the show they are drafted to for the first few months of year one, consisting of four Raw or four SmackDown! events, plus a monthly pay-per-view (PPV) event. If the player’s character is a created superstar, or if the original superstar has a rating lower than 60, he will instead wrestle on Sunday Night HEAT. Eventually, the player will be booked on the two major TV shows, appearing on two Raw and two SmackDown! shows and the PPV event. One of the featured story lines is based on the nWo of early 2002 that included Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and X-Pac (who replaced the released Scott Hall). This wrestling game was awesome it was so fun picking your favourite characters such as Rob Van Dam, Kurt Angle, Booker T all very talented wresters they are legends.
