"There aren’t many big names excluded, outside of some notables like Ric Flair, Chris Jericho, Mick Foley, Kevin Nash, and Jerry “the King” Lawler."

Just had to point out that Chris Jericho and Jerry Lawler have already been announced as DLC characters. So, they're on the way! Also, since this is a user review and not comments, I guess I'll say that I LOVE this game. I agree with GI's review, but I picked this up today after playing the heck out of the demo, and it's awesome. A more NFL Blitz-style approach to things is LONG overdue, and the execution in All Stars is spot on. The animations are much more responsive and snappier than any other wrestling/MMA/boxing game out there, and the animation blending - for reversals and counters - are probably the best I've seen in a fighting game save for Dead or Alive. This game just "feels" spot on, and is MUCH more fun to play than "sim" wrestling games from the past 3 console generations. The lack of options seem like it'll sting a bit once the thrill wears off, and the lack of a tutorial is MIND BOGGLING (especially since this is meant to appeal to "WWE newbies" somewhat), so that's not cool, and should be corrected in sequels. But the core game is so fun that it shouldn't be TOO big of a problem if you have competition to play with, and you make sure to learn the reversals. At least it's nice that it "trains" you to do it when button prompts flash in the corners of the screen.

Bravo THQ San Diego. Like the Miz, this game is AWWWWWWEEEEESOOOOOMMMEEE!
