SummerSlam weekend has arrived!
With that said, the most spectacular extravaganza of the summer is also host to SummerSlam AXXESS, the interactive show where you can meet and greet Superstars and Divas, plus get the first scoops on the latest installment of THQ's bigger, better, badder WWE '12 videogame.
Without delay, here is the roster revealed today.
John Cena: current WWE Champion
Alberto Del Rio
David Otunga: current Tag Team Champion
Cody Rhodes: current Intercontinental Champion
Michael McGillicutty: current Tag Team Champion
Dolph Ziggler: current United States Champion
Christian: current World Heavyweight Champion
CM Punk: current WWE Champion
Kelly Kelly: current Divas Champion
Stone Cold Steve Austin
This is about 80 percent of the total roster and mind you, there are to be downloadable content packages coming afterwards so you are looking at an amazing game for all WWE fans.
The release date is set for Nov. 22, 2011 and much more is to be revealed by then so let's all keep our eyes and ears open for more detail.
I am hoping for some Kharma in there eventually but I'll settle for having Michelle McCool, Edge and Kevin Nash as now I can truly have the WWE I want and the feuds I want to see. Drew McIntyre and Sheamus vs. Demolition for the Tag Team titles, anyone?
I always enjoy this little special presentation because I am a big fan of the game series and can hardly wait to know the roster when they first announce it in the winter. It's fun to play "Creative Writer" and build-up huge storylines and matches I wish I could see in real life.
The best part is, sometimes I am right!
The "legends" part isn't as great as I'd wish but who knows what else they can add in the space of a year.
Let me know what your impressions are on this roster and the game itself. What are the people YOU would like to see added in there?
Have a great SummerSlam event everyone and don't forget to watch RAW Monday night as Undisputed WWE Champion SUPERSTAR X battles Rey Mysterio.
Who will be that X and will Alberto Del Rio cash in the MITB briefcase? I am getting goosebumps.
