The lights are on
THQ has revealed a huge list of grapplers who will be entering the ring in the upcoming pro-wrestling game WWE 12. They join cover athlete Randy Orton, CM Punk, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who was previously announced as a preorder bonus. In addition, the publisher is leaving the choice of cover athlete for the special edition up to the fans.
Voters have a choice between The Rock and The People's Edition or John Cena and The Champ's Edition. In addition to picking the cover athlete for the special edition, votes will determine what kind of exclusive content it will include. To make your voice heard, visit the game's Facebook page, "like" it, and cast your ballot.
In addition to revealing the roster, THQ also announced that WWE 12 will feature a Create an Arena mode. May we suggest a large, open area with a centrally located ring? And lots of chairs?
Here's the partial list of who will be playable in the game. There are still a few slots open on THQ's official site, so there's still hope if you don't see a favorite. In other words, Doink fans shouldn't lose any sleep. For now.

That roster isnt to shabby.
Wait a minute....Dan didn't write this one?!?!?!
Leave the Special Edition to the fans? Then it won't be called Special Edition - it'll be called "Fruity Pebble Homeless Power Ranger Edition" Complete with a Wonder Woman Transvestite figurine!
*** talk about a comprehensive list pretty much of every current person
Demolition and LoD/Road Warriors = awesome.
Glad Nash is himself and not Diesel. Perhaps even multiple attires?
Here's to hoping the additional spots include Ultimate Warrior, Randy Savage, Mr Perfect, and Scott Hall/Razor Ramon.
I vote for the People's Edition. Also, the create an areana mode sounds kinda cool.
That's a lot of people.
Not a bad roster - I tend to skip WWE titles every other year and considering the last game I picked up was SD vs Raw 2010 this one will be an easy buy for me.
Kevin Nash?! Add Scott Hall in there and I might just pre-order.
wheres Bret da Hitman Heart?????? i need him to be on here.
