I hope this version is more of an actual "wrestling" game lol. Instead of building on gimmicks, they should continue to add on to the little things. Either way i am excited about the announcement

Didn't like this year's game, haven't really liked it for a few years. That being said, that trailer is hot...

CAF sounds cool and if we will be able to DL wrestlers, well, thats just awesome. Hopefully the Road to Wrestlemania is all Ledesma makes it out to be and the other single player mode adds some replay value.

However, another mode that we're not discussing yet will be able to support a bunch more options for the players that like to have the free rein, the multiple decisions to use created elements in that mode, but we'll discuss it at a later point.
I'm anxious to know about this......... honestly could be the selling point for me if see the season mode remotely resembling HCTP with the involvement of created wrestlers in a season mode is in the game. I'm hoping this is what that means.

Im sold. Ive been wanting a create a finisher since WCW Revenge. (IE when they started taking allot of the moves out of the game.

I also hope that the hidden characeters are tag teams (since that seems to be their focus this year). So we can get Demolition, The Rockers (with 80's Shawn Michaels), LOD, Brain Busters, Freebirds, Hart Foundation, etc.

Demolition would be awesome

Your not the only one, I got ideas running through my head already. I've always wanted to see someone use a move I saw at an Indy show years and year ago I don't even remember the performers name:

He used a quick hammerlock then slammed the guy down face first in a modified forward Russian leg sweep with his arm still in the hammerlock, then as soon as he hit mat he let go of opponents arm sat on the opponents back using his weight to pin him down, grabbed under his chin in one armed choke hold with the other arm pulled his leg and proceeded to bend the opponent in half.....

hopefully we won't have to as they'll stop dropping moves and add the ones that matter....get the HINT THQ....

I just want to make a top-rope Tombstone Piledriver.

Hopefully, we'll be able to accurately re-create finishing moves that are missing, there always is of course, like Big Show's Cobra Clutch Backbreaker, Kennedy's Mic Check, John Morrison's Corkscrew Neckbreaker and Undertaker's Gogoplata.
