I'll let CRZ decide if this goes here or video games. Big news is Demolition is on the roster. Edge is in the Legends section while Mr.Machon is part of the main roster. No Shawn, Bret, Piper or Bella Twins. There are rumors of a DLC coming with Trish and Michael Cole.

Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
The trouble with the midsummer cuts, as is always the case any year, is that it's too late to take them out of the annual video game, since the game's development cycle is so close to wrapping up. So it'll be...awkward, to say the least, to see Kozlov among the group. Seeing Husky's name on here reminds me of how badly I want to see him come back up to the main roster.
I really miss Vader. Vader was one of those guys I didn't truly appreciate until he was gone, but there will never be a guy that big that can work that well with that much agility again. Can't wait to see him again in this game.

Packaging Trish and Cole together in a DLC so that they could later point to how much money Cole brings in (and thus justify his continued existence) is so devious...that it's quite ingenious.

Hopefully Demolition comes with their original music, not the generic stuff that WWE replaced it with on recent home video releases.
The best part of Demolition was their music, for certain.
I hope Alberto Del Rio's ring entrance is still in beta and will be improved upon prior to the release of the game. The in-game Ricardo Rodriguez doesn't sound a tenth as excited as he does in real life. (In fact, it hardly sounds like Rodriguez at all).

I'm not sad that Andre isn't in the game - he's been a legend in about a million WWE games now - but getting Owen would be a nice change.
With the 14 left to be announced, I'd love to see Tully Blanchard for Arn to team with and Scott Hall for Nash to team with. And Stevie Ray to team with Booker T, why not. For whatever reason, I always want to make or download CAWs to put together teams, despite the fact that I never like actually playing tag team matches in wrestling games.
I haven't downloaded any games yet, but the only ones that appeal to me at the moment are Mario 64 and maybe Sonic. According to this Wikipedia entry, though, some sweet ones are coming out soonish. I'm looking forward to Punch-Out!!
