The lights are on
On Friday, we ran a story about the awesome reveal of Macho Man Randy Savage in the upcoming WWE All Stars. While his inclusion is surprising due to his rough relationship with WWE, today's box art reveal shows off an even more unexpected inclusion -- Hulk Hogan.
Considering he's currently employed by the (technically) competing promotion TNA, we're not really sure how THQ pulled this one off. Whatever legal obstacles they faced have obviously been overcome, as you'll be slamming Andre like it was Wrestlemania III all over again.
Also on the cover are current superstars Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton, John Cena, and Rey Mysterio. They're joined by legends such as Ultimate Warrior, The Rock, and Randy Savage. I'd also like to point out that Warrior is the Ultimate Warrior's legal name now ever since he changed it. He's also as crazy in real life as he was during his promos. I look forward to playing as him in All Stars, and I'll make full use out of the two crappy moves that he used.
Take a look at the full box art below.
Also, I'll just put this here...

Cool box art and cool that The Rock and Hulk Hogan are in it. I'm not much of a wrestling game guy though.
Ultimate Warrior, nice!
I like wrestling games. This time around, it looks pretty good.
I don't like any of the new guys in wrestling, but I would be interested in playing as The Rock, Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and Ultimate Warrior, and Rey Mysterio Jr.
so are they mixing old school wrestlers with the new ones of today? I'd like to pit rey Mysterio against Andre the giant. Also the wrestlers in the game look highly exaggerated and I like it.
I think this might be fun to play with all the ol' skool wrestlers. I wanna put Mcho Man vs The Rock, oh yyeeeaaahhhhh!
So I loved the Ultimate Warrior back in the day (1990-ish), but now I think his costume just looks like a 12 year old girl's bike...
I hope this game will be fun. Also, does anyone know if you'll be able to create superstars?
Oh, God... I had forgotten just how bat *** nuts Ultimate Warrior was.
I haven't played a wrestling game in years, nor have I watched since I was in middle school. (Those were the Hollywood Hogan days...sigh.) Anyways, I am really excited for this. I love the over-the-top nature of it all.
I'm interested in this.
