The WWE ’13 Roster Revealed

Posted in News with tags , , , , on August 19, 2012 by Rabidgames

As usual, SummerSlam is the time to reveal the roster of the annual WWE game. WWE ’13 is no exception.

To make it short, here is WWE 13‘s illustrious, attitude oriented roster so far.

There are some surprises here: Among other guests such as the Big Boss Man, Ken Shamrock or the Godfather, (aka Papa Shango aka Kama) the whole DX will be part of WWE ’13 (pretty cool indeed); but the one thing standing out are tons of wrestlers who take up multiple spots: We have Mankind, Cactus Jack and Dude Love, two Litas (wtf?), two Cenas (really?), three Triple Hs (seriously, Yukes?) and the old and the new Jericho.
Excuse Rabidgames, but have they ever heard of alternate attires? Probably not …

As for the Attitude themed campaign mode in WWE ’13, let’s hope for the following tales:

  • DX vs Corporation (well, that’s 99% with all DX members in game)
  • Austin vs McMahon (again, that iconic story must be in there)
  • Taker’s Ministry
  • Taker vs Mankind (the legendary Hell in a Cell match, of course)
  • Nation of Domination (Henry, Farooq, Godfather are there)
  • Edge & Christian (sadly, no Hardys and no Dudleys – what a shame!)
  • The rise of The Rock
  • A schizophrenic story revolving around Mankind/Dude Love/Cactus Jack
  • the WWE/Invasion story (after all, Shane and Stephanie are there as well)

Again, it’s a big, big shame we’ll have to do without current TNA wrestlers such as Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, the Dudleys or TNA officials like Al Snow or D’lo Brown.

On a side note, we should all bear in mind that our favourite mode ever will be back in WWE ’13: Finally, we can be Special Referees again!

Rabidgames raises the People’s eyebrow: While the roster looks good for an Attitude themed game (DX!), there is some bullshit going on: It’s called DLC. It’s been confirmed that AJ and Damien Sandow will be DLC only – and you can bet there is still far more to come. After all, we’re talking about THQ. Just look what has beome of the Saints Row series … Anyway, reliving some of the best moments in wrestling history should still be enough to buy WWE ’13 …
