WWF SmackDown! Just Bring It is the first WWF/E game on the PlayStation 2 that gained infamy for the badly acted commentary, Fred Durst being a guest star so that Undertaker could use Limp Bizkit's "Rollin'" as entrance music, lack of WCW/ECW invaders (apart from few who had signed with WWF before the start of the infamous storyline), and high memory card storage requirements. This was also the last game in the series to use the WWF acronym, as they tapped out to a panda a few months later.

Stone Cold Steve Austin... and... The Rock... are competing continually. Hurry! Hurry!

Unused Voices

To do:
Dump the voice clips; there are also references to unused game modes there.

Due to time constraints, some wrestlers have to be left off the game, leaving only their voice calls and unlockable movesets. However, as it turns out, there are several more voice calls that cannot be selected from Nick Name list in the Biography section of Create A Superstar; these files are present in the VOICE.VPK file. The voice calls below refer for Tazz and Michael Cole's commentary calls, unless otherwise stated.

Name Reason
D-Lo Brown Sent back to developmental during development.
Chaz Left WWF during development. Bizarrely has 2 announcement voice files per announcer.
Tiger Ali Singh Sent back to developmental during development.
Grand Master Sexay Fired from WWF during development.
Scotty 2 Hotty Injured for most of 2001. Might also be related to Sexay's firing.
Chyna Left WWF during development on very bad terms.
Mark Henry Injured and took a long hiatus during development.
Gangrel Left WWF during development; also trademark issues with White Wolf.
Paul Bearer Removed from television during development.
Pat Patterson Removed from television as the Stooges were no longer required on-screen.
Gerald Brisco Removed from television as the Stooges were no longer required on-screen.
Pete Gas Sent back to developmental during development.
Joey Abs Sent back to developmental during development.
Rodney Sent back to developmental during development.
Kevin Kelly Unknown.
Haku Possibly related from him being phased out from television after his Royal Rumble appearance.
Terri Runnels Unknown.

In Howard Finkel's sound files, there are also references to Ivory's status as representative of the Right to Censor stable (she wears her pre-RTC outfit in the final game). Curiously enough, Fred Durst is only mentioned by name by Finkel; Cole and Tazz refers to Durst as simply "superstar". There are also voice files by Howard Finkel, Cole, and Tazz corresponding to various tag teams and stables not present in the game in any capacity, including the New Age Outlaws, Get Rowdy, Too Cool, 'Lo Down and the Mean Street Posse.

Unused Match Types

To do:
What does 15-1B do? These are single matches, but BigBossman says it's related to King of the Ring mode.

A number of unused match types can be set by using the code 002F1BE0 000000??.

  • 10 to 13 is a glitched Royal Rumble, with the number of starting wrestlers other than four being possible (depending on the game mode selected when the code is active) and The Rock (character ID 0) being always the new wrestler to come in after the Rumble countdown.
  • 24 is the Hardcore Time Limit Title match from the previous game, with the addition of the crown indicator for the current reigning champion; the player who pins, submits, or knocks out the player with crown indicator would be designated the interim champion; this process continues until a decisive winner is decided when time runs out. This mode was not used in this game as titles can only be won or lost in Story Mode, but would return in WWE SmackDown!: Shut Your Mouth, with the crown indicator system and the gameplay no longer tied to the Hardcore Championship.
  • 3B appears to be a Lumberjack match. Two main players (on top HUD) wrestle, while the other wrestlers surround the ring attempting to attack or pull the active wrestlers out of the ring.
  • 65, 66, 69, and 6A correspond to matches with two special referees of Falls Count Anywhere Triple Threat, Falls Count Anywhere Fatal Four-Way, Hell in a Cell Triple Threat, and Hell in a Cell Fatal Four-Way types respectively, although the designated referees doesn't work properly.
