      Sorry THQ, I’m just not interested.

      The series is beyond stale now. When the TNA game (which was released in 2007) looks better than today’s WWE games, you know it’s time for a change.

      I read on another site that this game will have a new feature called “environmental finishers”, such as spearing your opponent through the ringside barricade, or collapsing the ring w/ a superplex. This sounds awesome, but I’m wondering to what extent the realism will take place. I mean, you wouldn’t expect the ring to collapse if say, Mysterio and Sin Cara came crashing down. I hope THQ addresses this…
