WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw
|WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw|
Also known as: Exciting Pro Wrestling 6 (JP), WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2005
Sports entertainment video games will never be the same, as WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw plays the brand split aspect of the Ruthless Aggression era further.
Cut Character Announcements
An unused introduction exists for the Basham Brothers (Doug & Danny), 2 characters who aren't present in the roster at all, but would later be present in WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2006.
Curiously, Lillian Garcia's announcement for them is noticeably lower quality than for any of the playable superstars.
In addition to the Basham Brothers, The British Bulldog, Brock Lesnar, Cactus Jack, Mick Foley, Ricky Steamboat and Rikishi were originally intended to be playable but were removed due to either the developers being unable to resolve licensing issues at the time or WWE roster changes, Bulldog can still be made playable via cheat codes.
Unused Background Music
A censored recording of "Money" by Cypress Hill is included in BGM001.AFS, which contains the game's soundtrack, but never plays at any point in the game and is the 11th song in that archive. Why it was removed is not known.
Is the Bra and Panties mode called Bikini again in EPW6?
The Japanese version removed online multiplayer.
