Oooo. That's great. I actually often have more fun creating things in these games than playing them. Especially since they are so fun played with a friend, and I don't have any of those. :(

Allow me to put barbed wire on the ropes and I'm in.

Call me when there's a way to create storylines and I'm there. Honestly I would love it if someone did a AAA professional wrestling simulator where you were Vince McMahon and you mapped out who fights who, what gets said, different antics, and the types of matches. Man I would love that. Sadly impersonators would be needed (as some of the finest have passed and licensing might be a pain in the ass) but it would be worth it if I could replicate some of wrestling's finest moments.

You never bought No Mercy?!

That seems like a pretty neat feature.
 
The last wrestling game I bought was WWF No Mercy for N64.  I played that game quite a bit.  My buddies and I would make create a wrestlers left and right.  However, I encountered some glitch where all the creations and edits were deleted.  It was a bummer to say the least.

Man I love just making shit in wrestling games so I am stoked for this. Will we be able to download other arenas like we could Superstars and Stories? Because god dammit I will make an ECW ring and I want props for it.

I believe they said you can indeed download other arenas on the community creations.

This looks good, but I hope it can all be integrated into the Universe mode this year.

Let me create my own shows, arenas, belts and be able to play through it only using caws, and I'm sold.

But it seems every year they announce an amazing new feature, but then manage to ruin the game by making one or two very obvious mistakes that end up totally bringing the whole thing down.

This looks cool but I'd love to create my own entrance stage.

They said you can use the arenas in Universe .

This is my biggest worry too. To me, it seems like SvR 2006 is the most full-featured WWE game, as it still had a great create a wrestler, AND the ability to have men and women fight in the same match types (Or to even create a woman wrestler who could do more than just slap, it seems). Hopefully WWE 12 will prove to be a refreshing break from their "step forwards, step back" philosophy.
