If you are looking forward to the release of WWE 13, there’s a good chance that you have already seen the supposed leaked roster that was revealed for the game in full recently. We didn’t report about it when it first surfaced, but now after some additional details have emerged – we have a feeling that it may be real.
We saw many of your reactions too, on how the list could’t be real since a lot of wrestlers who you thought should be in the Attitude Era category were not included. The list, if you need reminding can be seen below courtesy of The Wrestling Observer and almost all of the familiar faces that you see on WWE TV today are included.
It is the Attitude Era names that will be of most interest though, and you’ll see that some wrestlers like HHH, Mark Henry, The Rock and Undertaker have even been named twice as both an Attitude Era wrestler and a current superstar. We’re guessing that means that they take up two slots in both categories on THQ’s website then?
While some of you may be thinking that the list isn’t real, we have a feeling that it might be. We’ve noticed that Billy Gunn and X-Pac have recently confirmed on Twitter that they are going to be in the game. Billy Gunn confirmed it when answering a fan question, while X-Pac made a separate status on his page confirming it as ‘breaking news’.
Don’t forget that this comes after Road Dogg confirmed weeks ago that he had already done voice-overs for the game, so it really does look like DX will be making a return in this game after all. It may also be worth pointing out that there are major whispers that DX will be reuniting for real on the upcoming 1000th episode on RAW. Could their appearance on TV be linked to their appearance in WWE 13?
Hopefully WWE and THQ will announce the full roster around the time when Summerslam begins. Take a look at the roster again and let us know if you are starting to believe it is real as well.
