This was truly a life-changing moment. Pro-wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes was at THQ’s E3 booth yesterday promoting the upcoming release of WWE All Stars and WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011. And wouldn’t you know it, he told me to beat it! Yes~!
WWE All Stars, for those unfamiliar, is an arcade-y alternative to the more “realistic” (if that’s the word to use) WWE SmackDown vs. Raw series of games. The roster is made up of 15 past legends—presumably Dusty Rhodes will be one—and 15 current Superstars. THQ only confirmed the presence of John Cena and The Rock on the roster.
The biggest WWE legend of all time, Hulk Hogan? My guess is that he won’t be in the game given that he’s currently in rival promotion TNA Wrestling. Oh well.
The game is scheduled for release early next year.
