WWF Smackdown: Just Bring It [PS2 – Beta]

WWF SmackDown! Just Bring It is a professional wrestling fighting game developed by YUKE’s Future Media Creators and published by THQ for the PlayStation 2 in 2001. In the early screenshots from the beta version Lionheart noticed some differences:

Jericho, Angle and Jeff Hardy had different costumes in the final game, these models can still be used with a gameshark/codebreaker

The game had 3D announcers sitting at the announcers table, who would sometimes pop-up in a “picture in picture” view to talk about the match. Both of these features where cut out of the final game (Although you can see a picture of Tazz and Micheal Cole commentating on the back of the boxart).

You were able to attack the announcers during the match

In the final game there is only one ladder in ladder/tlc matches, while in the beta there were a lot.

There are no big ladders at all in the final game.

In the beta it was possible to do attacks with the ladder which were removed from the final game (Dropkicking the ladder into the face).

You can also notice an alternate start screen.

Thanks to Lionheart for the contribution!
