Choose to play as a GM in 24/7 mode. Choose a pre-set roster, and set your champions. Go forward a couple of weeks into the calendar, and simulate matches up until that date. Renew the contracts of a few of your superstars for as long as is possible (make sure you include your champions). Go to the calendar, select a date just before the contracts expire, and choose to simulate up until this point. You will have made enough to renew the contracts again. Repeat the same procedure until you get to WrestleMania. You should get there with a couple of decent superstars to compete in a championship match. Put the championship on the line, and fight the match to unlock Vince McMahon.
Start a game in 24/7 mode with a superstar that is 90 or better overall in attributes. Go to the calendar, scroll down to WrestleMania, and select it. Choose to simulate all matches up to this date. You should get a lot of money. Save the game, and repeat this as many times as desired to get an unlimited amount of money.
When you start 24/7 mode, go on trophy dates as much as possible. This is the quickest and easiest way to earn popularity. Your salary is based on how popular you are. Get your popularity at 100 (or close to it) when your contract expires. The next week you will get your salary notification. Teddy Long or Coach will tell you that you now have a $1 million salary ($20,000 per week).
The easiest way to get popularity is to go on trophy dates. You will increase 5% on each date (about 30% per week).
Create a superstar. Duplicate him thirty times. Start GM mode. Turn off every superstar, and only leave on the created superstar. The other two brands will be left with the CAW at 20 popularity. Turn on the superstars again in the available draft the next week. When they become available, sign them, and you will win the ratings easily.
This trick requires two controllers. Use either a created wrestler or an original superstar. Select a match in 24/7 mode, and choose your opponent. Do not select your wrestler. When the match starts, grab a weapon if it is just normal rules, and hit your wrestler for the DQ, or you can simply get counted out. This results in an easy victory for the character you selected. In a Fatal-4-Way match, put both player one and two on any two goons. Focus on the single CPU wrestler to help your character get an easy win. This will work on any difficulty setting. Basically, switch the CPU opponent to your control and cause him to lose.
This trick works in any Royal Rumble and is especially useful when trying to complete the Royal Rumble challenge in Hall of Fame mode, and get the "That's one for the record books" achievement. Set the difficulty to Legend, and start the Royal Rumble match as the #1 entrant as The Great Khali. When the match begins, Strong Irish Whip the #2 entrant over any top rope. Once they are over the top rope and are on the apron, start striking them relentlessly. When the #3 entrant is four seconds away from entering the Royal Rumble (check the timer on the left side of the screen), stop striking the #2 entrant, and grab them. If done correctly, the #2 entrant's meter should be halfway or more gone, making him easy when you grab them. Do this to entrant after entrant to win the Royal Rumble.
Do not train to increase your skill level on a CAW until you purchase the premium ability kits. If you do, it will be a waste of time because the skill levels will be set to the defaults. Train only after you have bought it to bring it from the 80s to the 90s and 100s.

Use the following trick to set a table on fire. Have two specials stored. Grab a table from under the ringside. Set up the table inside the ring or outside but not in the special places. Hold R1 and keep tapping Triangle while your wrestler is setting up the table. Your wrestler will throw a match on the table and set it on fire.
While holding a ladder, press R3 to do the Helicopter.
