I can fondly recall my days as a hardcore gamer. I used to absolutely run it in Madden, no matter what year it was. I was partial to RPG's (role playing games), though, so I didn't play a lot of the pro wresting video games. And when I did, all I ever cared about was delivering as many finishers as I could and winning the Royal Rumble with everyone on the roster.
Speaking of rosters, that's what was released at SummerSlam Axxess this weekend for the upcoming release of WWE 12. Here's the list of superstars you can play as just as soon as the game hits stores.
