Well, The Japanese release is out anyway. A friend and I, he knowing Japanese and me knowing FirePro, went through the WWE list of Wrestlers and came up with what I'm thinking the WWE roster will be. I'm not too sure on one or two guys, but what we have seems pretty good...
WWE Ax Dugan -- Hulk Hogan Steven Najas -- Steve Austin Great Majo -- The Rock Deathshead -- Undertaker (Finisher name leads me to believe the actual Last Ride is in) "Mr. Dandy" Valley Manson -- Kevin Nash??? "Drunk Gigolo" Crazy Rose -- Scott Hall??? (Drunk Gigolo?) Double Trouble -- Triple H Tyrant -- Kane Thomas Johnson -- Kurt Angle "Gold Illusion" Johnny Laser -- Chris Jericho Wildman David -- Chris Benoit "Elder Flying Kung Fu Brother" Jack the Viper -- Rob Van Dam (Trademark is Frog Splash) Gigante Joe -- Big Show "The New York King" Bobby Goodman -- ??? (Finisher is Crossface Chickenwing) "Dancing Train" Dr. Jones -- ??? (Finisher is Extended Jumping Heel Drop; Could that be the FirePro name for a Scissor Kick? Perhaps this is Booker T?) Darkness Wolf -- DDP (Finisher is Diamond Cutter) "Lethal Weapon" The Genocide -- (No idea, Finisher is Avalanche Type PowerBomb System. I know it's a looooong shot, but perhaps this is Brock Lesnar?) "Lil' Meatball Monk" Mighty Boy Eddy -- Umm...Spike Dudley? (Finisher is Oklahoma Stun Pit) Waka Yukiguni -- Taka Michinoku Karatekid -- X-Pac Mad Bastard -- Vince McMahon "The Scary Son is Coming" Junk Bastard -- Shane McMahon
I really really hope that "Dancing Train" Dr. Jones is Booker T. The FPD scissor kick was pretty good and I'm hoping that's what we have there...
"In a related note, millions of gamers have just shit their pants." -Billy from Planet GameCube after confirming the Nintendo/Square deal with NCL
"The New York King" Bobby Goodman -- ??? (Finisher is Crossface Chickenwing)
Kurt Angle? Bob Bacland?
probably Bob, he's more well know in Japan.
You can't fire a gun in a confined space! What are you tring to do, make us deaf?!" "Just get out of the chopper." "What?" "Get out of the chopper!" "The crops!?" - Jack Lemmon and James Garner, "My Fellow Americans", and the reason I say "The crops?" instead of "Huh?"
Those are all absolutely the best nicknames for all those wrestlers that I've ever heard. This is truly a godsend.
Remember when "The Scary Son is Coming" Junk Bastard was "Dancing Train" Dr. Jones' manager? Didn't that suck? Mad Bastard needs to stop putting his family members on TV. Hey, I was watching another wrestling show yesterday and I saw "Drunk Gigolo" Crazy Rose! How'd he get there?
gonna build a giant drill and bore straight into hell releasing ancient demons from their sleep-forever spell so they can walk upon the earth and get recituated and run the diet pill pyramid that MC Pee Pants has created
Based on presentation alone, I would really be unhappy if this turned out to have the worst control system ever. I'm knocking on wood that it's at least better than Raw 2. The boards at Gamefaqs say that the countering is just like Smackdown!
