The Five Best Retro WWE Games

2. WWE SmackDown! Shut Your Mouth

So, those who follow WWE programming might be aware that there is a WWE Draft coming up in a few weeks. The Raw and SmackDown rosters will split for the second time in history, with a now-live SmackDown’s move to Tuesday capping off the festivities.

Certainly, this is an exciting time for WWE. Younger gamers might not remember how cool the first ever WWE Draft was way back in 2002, when co-owners Mr. McMahon (SmackDown) and Ric Flair (Raw) alternated picks to fill out their respective rosters. WWE SmackDown! Shut Your Mouth captured that excitement perfectly.

The game’s season mode allowed you to select one of the two owners and make picks on behalf of his brand. Essentially, you had the opportunity to create this new WWE landscape before your very eyes. After the draft’s conclusion, you would progress as normal with your chosen WWE superstar on whichever brand had selected him.

Another awesome season mode feature was the ability to walk around backstage. You could go to the owner’s office and make a request or visit one of many other rooms throughout the arena. You even bought your unlockables at an actual WWEShop vendor! Talk about the full WWE experience.
