Just to let you know ,jean shorts are live and well here in West Virginia.

Jared Rea is god-like. He needs to be hired by GB so he can fly to all the fighting game tournaments and cover them. I'd love that. Fighting game tournaments are on the edge of going mainstream, all they need is some good constant coverage from a website like GB to help them blow up more. Jared could do that.

I for one am happy to see the glorious return of fighting game fanatic and wrestling expert Jared Ray/Rei/Rey/Reigh.  It's a testament to just how old I am now that recognize every single character on the left side of the select screen and only about a third of the dudes on the right.  Wrestling has lost its way in recent years.  I remember loving Wrestlemania: the Arcade Game as well as the Genesis iterations of Royal Rumble and Raw.  Great video!  Do as many as possible!

I like the speed of the gameplay, the Smackdown vs Raw games are so slow nowadays.  
 
Still looks super odd to me visually. Great to hear from Jared again.

Hell yeah, Jared Rhea. Missed him ever since MY NAME IS JACKIE CHAN AND THIS IS MY GAME.

@Olivaw:
Agreed, was hoping to see more of those two as well as Roddy Piper. Not enough of a wrestling fan to pick up the game though.

I'm really digging the way Hogan puts his hand up to his ear on the menu screen.

POP IN.

This game looks much better than I expected it to look. 
 
Might actually check this one out.

How'd they ever get Ultimate Warrior in there? I didn't think he'd ever be in anything with the WWE name on it ever again- what with all the hate between him and what's his face.
 
I wonder if they have some famous Ultimate Warrior rants on here... those are so great. It's really a shame he really is that crazy haha
 
Anyway, ya first wrestling game I've been interested in since i was like 7 (22 years ago). Last wrestling game i played was on the Atari 2600.
 
I probably still won't play this one just because I am broke but it definitely looks fun in comparison to wrestling these days as a whole.

I'm not that into wrestling, but this looks surprisingly good.

Needs more Jackie Chan.

Early 2000s era denim shorts, not current hipster skinny jeans cut into shorts.

...Ohhhhh. You were being serious o_O

I was dismissive of this game before this quick look. But after watching this, I must say, it looks pretty good. As a wreslting fan, the promo videos seem like a good bit of fan service and the gameplay seems a lot more fun that the regular games. Hell, overall, it just looks like a more polished WWE package than any of the games from the last couple of years.
 
WWE All Stars! I will buy you! Eventually...

lol at ryan's closet liking of john cena

Posted by GrandMarshal

Finally a good wrestling game

Posted by sixghost

I can't believe that wrestler's schtick is that he's straightedge. Wrestling is hilarious.

What the hell is The Miz doing in there?

I would be way more interested in this game if the characters weren't grotesque monsters. The fighting looks like fun but i just can't get past the look.

Posted by 234r2we232

This was made by the same people as the awful Midway TNA game? 
 
Now avoiding like the plague :/

Posted by GodsAreMonsters

Put a silly mask on him and John Cena turns this game into "WWE: Splatter House".

Posted by StriderNo9

I havent played or watched wrestling since the early 90s, but I will say this game looks pretty cool. 

Posted by Satsugai

I'm holding out for Razor Ramon and Doink the clown dlc, then reliving wrestlemania arcade can begin.

Posted by Lingxor

This is how you make a god damn WWE game.

Man, I played so much Crush Hour it's not even funny.

Posted by LegendaryChopChop

It's no SVR (say what you want, but the attention to the detail and accurate presentation is ideal for WWE fans such as myself), but I'm jazzed nonetheless for this game. Looks fun and like an excellent game to just compete against friends with. I'm getting my copy after work and can't wait to go through it.

Edited by Death_Burnout

Super-Dragon! Yes there should be a botchamania game!
 
I really like this for the exact same reason i like the TNA game, great animations and mat slams. It's just a tad too light on "stuff". It's fun but I reckon for only for a day or two.
 
The fantasy warfare stuff all makes perfect sense to me, i'm not going to say all of the current's are worthy enough by no means. I knew i wasn't going to get to see an extreme rules match either, would like to have seen if it was crazy, or like WWF Warzone/Attitude, which i suppose is a good thing!

Posted by Hansolol

Looks awesome.

Posted by glitznglam_style

This looks like a lot of fun. I think I need to buy this one.

So, Mick Foley is not a legend now? There is a broken Hell in a Cell cage that would say otherwise.

Posted by Fragonard

WCW vs. NWO is the best wresting game ever.

The hell? is it Evo already?

No Red Rooster, no sale.

watching the old wrestlers makes me miss the old WWF and wonder what the fuk's happening with the new stuff. This new WWE is just....ugh

Edited by ImBigInJapan

I am no wrestling fan but I was impressed by the presentation here. It's not perfect but is a big step in capturing what people really like about pro wrestling. 
Plus, Winner by Disqualification is exactly how that  "Superior Lifestyle" match would end in reality.

Posted by AlwaysBeClothing

Pretty interested to try this out

SUU.. PUUURRR DRAGON!!! clap clap clapclapclap  SUU.. PUUURRR DRAGON!!! clap clap clapclapclap

Holy Crap!  A wrestling game that actually looks like fun!

Posted by zombiesatemycereal
@smitty86 he still works for tna i think so they probably had trouble licensing him
Posted by Undeadpool

This actually looks pretty fucking cool...how unexpected.

Botchamania is the best thing to happen to Pro Wrestling since baby oil.

MINUS FIVE STARS!!!
Posted by monkeynuts8

wow, i might actually get this

Posted by HydraHam

the smackdown far more arcade'ish than i like, this is just ridiculous and not in a good way IMO.
 
i miss the fire pro series, i wish either THQ teamed up with yukes again for another WM2000/NM or america brought the fire pro series over here, and not that dumbed down avatar bullshit.

Posted by OmegaPirate

Is it just me or are the actual in game animations really kinda flakey and not quite smooth
