Hot take:  Morishima flat out sucked in this match. Total carry job by Danielson.

Speaking of, one of the matches in the showcase is "American Dragon" Bryan Danielson vs John Cena and his yellow jeans from Velocity.  I think that's kind of neat.

I agree with said hot take. A hell of a carry considering how sloppy Morishima was and how significant Bryan's injury was.

With the pair of you.

I was never a fan of Morishima.  He always looked too much like the girls that would lounge around and read manga for free when I worked at the bookstore.  Goddamned freeloaders

Is it weird they've shown and said nothing of gameplay yet? I remember they had a demo for the media at Summerslam and it was rightly ripped for all the bugs and frame rate drops. Maybe they'd rather not have to deal with criticism until after release and they have most of their money in hand.

That's pretty much what they did with all the 8 man stuff last year that ran like garbage

Derp, that's what I meant to say, last year's Summerslam. If I'm posting on my phone, I'll almost assuredly have several typos ffs.

At this point I honestly buy this game just for create-an-arena. Pretty excited for the showcase, though. I wish the career mode was a little more intricate

That could be a bad omen. But at the same time, they're dragging feet on revealing the roster, and I can't imagine any nefarious reason why, so they may have just decided to push the marketing back.

Haven't bought the game in years, but if I did it would be for CAS. Its the only thing I really do whenever I rent it.

More roster announcements today, this time for Smackdown and 205 Live. Almas is in this year, so start planning your Los Ingobernables faction now. 205 is well represented--even Daivari and Nese are in. No Buddy Murphy; but maybe he's DLC?

I might have overlooked them but I haven’t seen Ciampa and Kendrick announced either. Does Ricochet and the War Raiders make it in?

They haven't been announced. The final reveal is next week. I expect all of them to be announced save for maybe War Raiders.

No Ciampa is a really, really dumb omission. And that has nothing to do with him being the current champ since that was recent. It does have to do with him being a focal point of NXT for more than a year.

But I guess they gotta sell that DLC.

No Ciampa is very strange. He could be in the DLC, but I'm not sure how that makes sense, since he's already been in the game. 

Also, no Nikki Cross or Brian Kendrick. There's a "mystery match" in the Daniel Bryan showcase--is there an indy match with Spanky and Danielson together that could possibly be it?

I keep going back to the Ciampa thing and honestly, even though I know he'll be included as DLC, he should already be in this thing because like you said, he was already in the game. It's that lack of attention to detail that makes me think that this year's edition is just going to be as much of a piece of shit. I don't even want to hear the excuse that he was injured. Shane Thorne was out injured for even longer and he's in the fucking game. How far does your head have to be up your ass to just leave out Ciampa? I'm totally on board with understanding why you would do DLC with like the War Raiders, Ricochet, and some others. That's fine.

I don't know why I get my hopes up for this game every year. Nothing changes. It's the same mind boggling bullshit each year. And yeah, no Nikki Cross either? So the NXT women's division is Sane, Shayna, and Bianca? Bianca being in over Dakota Kai, Lacey Evans, or even Candice is just weird. I can't wait to see how badly they fuck up the physics with Bianca's braid too. You know that thing is going to be flipping, flopping, and spinning all over that place.

On a positive note, thirty-seven women on the roster has to be a new record. Any word on whether we'll be able to do a women's Royal Rumble in this one?
