|WWF Smackdown! 2 Know Your Role follows 2000's highly successful WWF Smackdown! with wrestlers new to the federation (over 50 included) and never before seen Ladder and Tornado Tag Team matches. Whereas the original title was the first wrestling game to have storyline sequences, this sequel has improved on the idea with better and up to date character interaction.
The subtitle of WWF Smackdown! 2 comes from one of the World Wrestling Federation's most notable superstars -- The Rock; he informs his opponents to "Know your role and shut your mouth!"
