WWE recently sent the following press release our way, hyping what is all at once a great idea that I can’t believe they’ve never done before, and something that’s likely to get them in a world of trouble with detail-obssessed smarks like me.

Of course, I’m totally dropping $10.99 on an Amazon pre-order of it RIGHT NOW, so they likely don’t give two $#!+s what complaining on the internet I do about how John Cena’s next title shot isn’t justified based on the section in chapter 3, or whatever.
