THQ’s WWE ’13 is due out in stores later this fall and after revealing new characters, downloadable content and a special Collector’s Edition packaging, we’ve finally been given the entire roster list for the massive game, which features current superstars, divas and superstars from the Attitude Era. It’s an impressive list of names that only makes the wait seem that much longer.
What’s particularly interesting about this list is the inclusion of various Attitude favorites that haven’t been in the WWE for some time. I’m of course talking about Billy Gunn, Road Dogg, X-Pac and Booker T. These superstars are without a doubt an important part of WWE history, but they’ve been mostly absent (aside from Booker T) from the WWE Universe ever since the rival company TNA formed. I’m happy to see WWE striking up deals with said superstars, because reliving the Attitude Era just wouldn’t be the same without some of these popular names.
Below you can find a video that details the roster reveal, followed by a confirmed list:
Alberto Del Rio, Big Show , Booker T, Brock Lesnar, Chris Jericho, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Daniel Bryan, David Otunga, Dolph Ziggler, Edge, Great Khali, Heath Slater, Hunico w/ Bike, Jack Swagger, JBL, CENA (Dr.) Jonny Ace, Justin Gabriel, Kane, Kevin Nash, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, The Miz, Primo, Randy Orton, Mike Tyson, Road Warrior Animal, Big Bossman, Billy Gunn, Bradshaw , Bret Hart, British Bulldog, Cactus Jack, Y2J, Christian Edge/Christian, Dude Love, Eddie Guerrerro, Edge, Farooq, The Godfather, Road Warrior Hawk, HHH, Kane, Ken Shamrock, Mankind, Mark Henry, Mr. Mcmahon, Paul Wight, Road Dogg Jesse James, The Rock, Shane McMahon, DX HBK, TRIPLE H DX, Undertaker, Vader, Xpac, Lita, Stephanie, Trish, Stone Cold, Rey Mysterio, The Rock, R-Truth, Santino, Sheamus, Sin Cara Red, Epico, Ted Dibiase, Triple H, Undertakre bald, Jinder Mahal, Wade Barrett, Zack Ryder, Alcicia Fox, Beth Phoenix, Brie Bella, Eve, Kelly Kelly, Kharma, Nikki Bella, Lita, AJ Lee (DLC GM) CM Punk, DAMIEN SANDOW (DLC)
As you can see from the list above, the roster contains a well-balanced mix of legends and current gen superstars. It shouldn’t be too hard building up a variety of matches with this stacked list of stars. I would have loved the inclusion of Rikishi, Too Cool and even The Hardy Boyz, but I’m not going to complain, especially since Ken Shamrock managed to make the cut!
Which superstars are you surprised that made the cut? Is there some that you were really hoping for that didn’t end up on the reveal? Let us know in the comments below.
