Same goes for the SD! vs RAW roster seriously missing "big" current superstars. Kind of a let down. I am not into the whole spending my free time creating wrestlers who should already be in the game rather then playing the game itself. Besides I also like actual wrestlers entrance themes, etc.

Where the 'F' is JBL, Lita, Eugene & Regal, The Dudley Boyz? Theodore R Long? It might have been a error on THQ's part but Rhyno still listed as a SD! superstar and no Tajiri? La Resistance?

Should I go on?

As bad as the Smackdown vs. Raw roster is, this one is even worse. No JBL? What were they thinking?

Sorry guys, I'm a little behind with my gaming knowledge.

So what system is this game for and when is it due out?

Rosters are typically frozen around WM to get for fall releases. It's a heck of slow turnaround time, but I'd guess that's what required to get the games done. (They're probably better off pushing everything back a month, since post-WM usually features changes and rosters moves.)

Given that framing, the choices they made then make sense: JBL wasn't JBL yet, Eugene hadn't been thought of, and Regal had been back yet. Theodore R. Long, Tajiri and La Resistance had smaller roles.

It is strange Rhyno didn't get moved and Shelton did, since it happened within an hour of each other, and a day sooner than Booker and RVD's move. And it's surprising they'd choose Victoria or Molly Holly (and maybe even Stacy) over Lita, given fan support.

It's a really thin roster, but isn't that trademark of these Gamecube games?
