    Debut gameplay? And it’s coming out in a month? Well, these games all play the same so it’s not a huge deal.

    “Most Realistic WWE Video Game Ever!” Do you mean in this game outcomes are booked in advance and you call spots with your opponent while constantly being wasted by management who’d prefer trying to get losers like Reigns over for the millionth time?
