It could be one of many problems.
1. Are you using a cheat device, Gameshark Codebreaker, Action Replay, ect?
If so, the problem is a faulty cheat code.
Go through the code list and shut off/delete any weapon modifier codes.
That should solve that problem.

2. Is the disk dirty, smudged,fingerprints on it, scratched?
If dirty, smudged,fingerprints.
Rinse the disk in mildly warm water (roughly room temperature) and wipe thoroughly with a non-abrasive cloth (like you'd use to clean eye glasses).
If scratched, three words for you "Dawn Dish Liquid" follow the previous steps but prior to rinsing add about 2 table spoons of Dawn Dish Liquid to the surface of the disk and rub it in with a non-abrasive cloth.
You can use cheaper dish soap but for best results you should use Dawn.
I don't know why it works, I just know it works.

3. Is the laser in your PS2 dirty?
Even if it isn't it is a good idea to run a dvd cleaner through it after about every 10 or so hours of use.

    Only other thing I can think of is, it could be a faulty game disk.
    It doesn't happen often, but it does happen.
    Try one of the following.
    1. Try the game in another PS2 and see if it does the same thing.
    2. Try playing the game without a memory card or delete the save file and start over, see if that changes the outcome.
    3. If all else fails take it back to the place of purchase and exchange it for another copy.

My ps2 will load games, but freezes-up when loading the mission. screen stays blank.

First try using a DVD lens cleaner on the unit and check the game disks for imperfections. If scratches use a scratch fix kit. If the problem still happens even with a new game then your DVD drive needs to be replaced or just buy a refurbished or new PS2. They are cheap now so why not get a new one. Good luck

I have not personally played this version of SmackDown!, but in others that I have played, DQ stands for disqualified. Technically, it is against the rules of wrestling to hit someone with a chair, especially in an official belt match. There is no way of getting around this without cracking the actual game programming.
