Sup guys? This past Sunday was the WWE’s “Party of the Summer” Pay Per View event, Summerslam. Now, the WWE has a pay per view event every month, but there have always been 3 pay per views that are benchmarks for the professional wrestling company. Those three are The Royal Rumble, Summerslam, and of course, Wrestlemania. Now, for these events, the WWE basically take over the venue where the event is being held and have a weekend long convention they call WWE Fan Axxes. During this event, there are meet a greets with superstars, chances to commentate on matches with current and legendary WWE commentators, and also some press events. Well, this past weekend there was a press event held to reveal the roster for this years video game, WWE 13. And here it is!
Man, I’m really digging this roster. I was lucky enough to grow up watching wrestling during the 90s. And for anyone that watched during that time knows about the Monday Night Wars with WCW and more importantly, that was the beginning of the Attitude Era. I’ve gotta say, it’s gonna be really cool getting to play as the superstars of the Attitude Era and to see current superstars as they looked during that time. I. E. Triple H as he currently is, Triple H during the original DX days, and Triple H when he went by Hunter Hearst Helmsley. And also knowing that the “Three Faces of Foley” will all be playable. For those who were, and still are a fan of Mick Foley will appreciate that. Think about it, you could have a 6 man tag match between Hunter Hearst Helmsley, DX Triple H, and current Triple H against Mankind, Dude Love, and Cactus Jack. How cool would that be? And by the looks of it, you will be able to recreate famous moments from matches that took place during the Attitude Era. As you could see from the trailer, you will be reliving the moment when The Undertaker threw Mankind off of the top of the Hell in a Cell into the announcer’s table below. If you were a fan of wrestling, you will never get that moment out of you head for as long as you live.
I personally can’t wait for WWE 13. WWE 12 was a great title and THQ implemented a lot of new gameplay mechanics to make the game feel as close to real life as possible and it looks like they are improving on those mechanics.
WWE 13 comes out October 30, 2012 for Wii, PS3, and XBox 360.
