    WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2006 is the first game in the series to differentiate itself by using a year in its title. It's also the second game in the series to use the "Smackdown vs. Raw" name. Smackdown vs Raw 2006 added newer superstars and legends to the roster. The Playstation 2 version added online support for up to 4 players. The PSP version only had ad-hoc play for up to 4 players.

    New Features

    Several new gameplay features are introduced, including pre-match and in-match mini-games. The pre-match mini games are randomly chosen before every singles match:

    • Test of strength - a certain button shows up on the screen and the first player to press the button overpowers the other one. Best two out of three wins.
    • Stare down - the wrestlers talk trash to each other before the match and after a while, an "X" button picture appears. The first wrestler to press the button after that hits the other wrestler. Pressing the button too early will cause the wrestler to lose the stare down.
    • Shoving match - a wrestler initiates the match by pressing the X button when prompted, causing the wrestler to gently shove his opponent. A semi-circular meter appears and the player must stop the arrow at certain points of the meter to shove again with full power. If the player doesn't time the first shove correctly, the other player gets a turn to shove. Best of three shoves wins.
