Old and new features
The PSP version roster is nearly identical to the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 roster except with the removal of Christian Cage, Senshi, and Christopher Daniels (who appears in Story Mode but is unplayable) the PSP also includes Mick Foley, Consequences Creed, Don West, Mike Tenay, Afro Thunder, Petey Williams and a variety of jobbers created for Story Mode. However even though Petey Williams, Mike Tenay and Curryman were all downloadable contents in the first TNA game only Petey Williams and Mike Tenay are in the PSP version. Curryman isn't in that version, probably because Curryman was played by Christopher Daniels and he had left the company, his character was also removed from this game. However Curryman is in the DS version. The PSP version featured much of the original game match types such as
