Backstage interviews with Renee Young take on a whole new dimension with the new backstage brawling gameplay. Now more than ever, how a player competes, reacts, what is said and even what attire is worn can make a difference in a Superstar’s journey through the WWE. At some point, players are also likely to come face to face with Brock Lesnar and his advocate, Paul Heyman.

Modding

The Steam PC version of this game is fully moddable and has many Modding Tools available, although they usually aren't as advanced as the Modding Tools for later games. Much of the game can be modded, although not as much as in it's successor. Please refer to the Installing Mods Wiki page to for instruction on how to install mods in this game and check out the Main Page of this wiki for more information.

Note that Only the latest, fully updated official Steam version on the PC is fully moddable, due to the nature of much of the modding in these games. This means "Inofficial"/Cracked versions of the game aren't moddable the same way. Console versions usually aren't moddable the same easy way, as consoles encrypt their file systems. In addition, modding tools can't be installed and used on consoles like they would on the PC.
