The last wrestling game that I really enjoyed was Smackdown Here come the pain, it was almost perfect.

Even the AI on the ps2 was way better than the AI for the ps3 and xbox 360, what a joke.

Each year I cross my fingers, watching videos and news about the next wrestling game, hoping it will be the next one to make me play for hours and hours with a lot of fun but every time its a complete letdown so now im not expecting anything.

I just let the flow of time doing his thing and if its bad once again then its just routine, if its good then its an unexpected miracle.

I haven't watched wrestling in 10+ years but even I know John Cena so I guess that's why

Cena is being shoved deeper in our throats than Lightning from Square Enix.

I'm not buying this game based on who's on the cover.

And it's another year that S.D. "Special Delivery" Jones gets the shaft!

I would rather have X-Pac on the cover. Even that would be less awful.

Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family should have been on the cover. Bray should be champ too. They were one of the most devastating forces leading up to the Mania. But like almost everyone that is forced to mess with Cena they lost their momentum because Cena is the money maker and he is required to win.

I miss the old cover style where it features more than 1 superstar instead of just focusing only one WWE superstar.

Sigh. Was hoping for a Bastion Booger cover. Oh well, maybe next year.

I stopped watching WWE around five years ago because I just couldn't stand this guy anymore. Now I'm watching it for three months and he's champion again...it's so ridiculous. They have so many interesting new guys around but just don't know what to do with them. (I like Bray Wyatt the most - he's got so much charisma and plays his over-the-top-role perfectly...a shame he's supposed to be a heel and isn't allowed to win his matches alone) It's just "hey we need money...make Cena champion, because kids and women buy his merchandise"...

The Money In The Bank PPV was amazing last night.  It was easilly the best PPV of the year so far.... until John Cena won the belt.

John Cena sucks.


We need more games that have nothing but classic wrestlers.

Of course it had to be Cena. Or else WWE would have actually tried something new!

WWE and their ever Cena's d*ck sucking -.-

Let's put multiple superstars? No. Let's put Roman Reigns? No. Let's put Daniel Bryan, the biggest, hottest, most loved celebrity (which I hate) we have? No. Let's put godamn Cena again because we are stupid and he is our pimp!

If Yuke's is still the developer it will be the same crap as all those years before with no change. 2K would be stupid to change it as so many pseudo-wrestling fans love their shitty wwe game that doesn't evolve. Afterwards they might complain about it for 2 months but once WWE 2K16 is announced they're all hyped up and ready to buy it on the first day again, the cycle repeats. 


Really, it's laughable that the WWE games haven't matched the quality of Fire Pro Wrestling Returns by now or at least WWF No Mercy or at least go back to WWE Smackdown - Here comes the Pain or Smackdown vs. Raw 2006 but Yuke's can't even reach those levels they once had.

I don't even have to watch the show to know this was going to happen.

I hope they make a double cover again so I can flip this monkey face down. Hopefully Lesnar will take away his title at Summerslam.

Well I guess I shouldn't be too surprised that it's John Cena although I thought Daniel Bryan was a shoe-in. I guess the time off for his injury was the factor, too bad. I'm cool with Cena being on the cover though.

@bunchanumbers I am really really hoping the rating go down to a historic level now that he is the champion.... given the amount of people that is sick of Cena, there is a possibility.

@ItchyIsVegeta Yeah, so dissapointing... (honestly didn't think, they would make him champion AGAIN)

@thecman25 Cena is stale. I respect his work outside the ring, but his character pisses me off. He's worse than Hogan. He spent 98% of the match lying on the ground and then he wins, his victories aren't credible (I know wrestling is scripted and all that) they always put him over like some sort of superhero. His promos always sucking up to the crowd to get a little love. This has Vince McMahon booking all over it. I can't wait till HHH finally takes over, he's doing an amazing job in NXT (more entertaining matches, better booking and fun gimmicks)

@Mantan911 Only point he made was a childish rant. System may be bad but is it such a trauma if a comment remains on "pending"? (If the rest of his comments are like that one then I'm not surprised he is perma-pending)
