  1. Also not on last gen.

    The commentary is in much need of an overhaul and this is welcome news but i can see it being half arsed as usual. The walk around backstage thing isn’t really new. It used to be in the older PS2 games until Smackdown vs Raw and then appeared again in SVR 11. But if they put effort into it, could be interesting. Still no create a finisher returning. :(
    Create a match isn’t ne. Just the old match creator coming back but if it is more then a set of options, could be interesting.

  2. I think there was a typo in the press release. Here, lemmie correct that:

    “New Commentary Team: Suffering through the trio of Michael Cole, Byron Saxton and Corey Graves;”

    (Corey’s not that bad I guess but the other two…good lord!)
