Re: WWE 2012: A New Era
Meet the Roster: (Blue=face, Red=heel, Green=tweener)
CM Punk – The Pipe Bomb man, outspoken and controversial, sort of like an Austin character, except he mainly focuses his pipe bombs on heels.
John Cena – the hardworking for the people guy, leader of The United, representing the America, USA, USA!
Big Show – The Big Friendly Giant sort of like Andre before he turned heel, used to promote other guys but also goes on long winning streaks to then finally get put down by an upcoming heel.
‘Dastardly’ Daniel Bryan – uses any kind of method to get the win, he has become obsessed with winning the championship and it doesn’t matter who he has to stab in the back to get there, he is slippery like a snake, but don’t be fooled once he has you in the No Lock he won’t let go.
Kofi ‘Boom’ Kingston w/ Slick – The high-flyer puts his body on the line to entertain the fans, known to be explosive, living up to his name he will do anything to have the fans be entertained. Slick is his mouthpiece.
Mark Henry – The dominator, putting people in the Hall of Pain, rarely gets a loss but when a face comes up against him he is the ultimate underdog, used mainly against lower level talent when actually wrestling but with real rivalries he goes against anyone who will challenge him.
The Miz – one of the most hated people around, former reality star he has his own reality based show that has vignettes shown, MizTV.
‘The Truth’ Krazy Killings (R-Truth) – Back to hating little jimmy, he is insane and knows no boundaries which he will not cross, he hates the little kid fans and is a more hard-core type wrestler, wrestling in street clothes and often using any weapon or method to destroy his opponent, not focused on winning, just focused on destruction.
King Wade Barrett – The brutal bare knuckle fighter, comes out in jeans to fight, leader of Empire, his gang constantly cost The United matches and he gets help defeating his opponent with his fellow members. He wins by knockout and referee stoppage.
Sheamus – The brute, Irish Hell raiser, he likes to have a good time, drinking and joking around, but he has a short fuse and will fight anyone, anywhere.
Randy Orton – He is an arrogant and cocky wrestler, he doesn’t care about the fans or anyone else but himself. He often spits on his opponents in disrespect. He is snake-like so watch out for his bite.
Alberto Del Rio w/Camacho as personal bodyguard – The rich and powerful Mexican aristocrat is an aggressive brute who often bribes refs to earn the win and hires brutes such as Camacho and Ezekiel to carry out his dirty work. He takes out everyone and anyone to feed his massive ego.
‘The Rare breed’ Alex Riley – The young kid, loved by everyone, he is trying to pursue his dream, whilst fighting for The United, he is under the wing of John Cena and often tags with Big E and Cena.
Christian – The wiley old veteran is respected by the fans and will always put on a good show, he wrestles for his peeps and runs the weekly Peep show which often ends with an altercation between guests.
‘The American Nightmare’ Drew Wallace (Drew McIntyre) – Coming out looking like William Wallace (facepaint and all), he hates American culture and with the help of the rest of Empire, he seeks to change the WWE landscape, more befitting of a European society.
Ryback – The undefeated Ryback is on a path of destruction, he is a badass who rarely talks and doesn’t care who he faces, but they will end shell-shocked.
Ted DiBiase – Fighting for the commoners, unlike his Dad he isn’t in it for the money, he loves wrestling and shares that common bond with the fans. He often throws tailgate parties before shows to interact with fans; these are often showed in highlights during RAW.
Giant Bernard (Lord Tensai) – The big powerful man who has taken embracing culture to a whole new level, he has immersed himself in Japanese culture and style of wrestling, he refuses to talk to anyone in English, but often cuts promos on the fans and his opponents in Japanese.
Big E Langston – A young up and comer, under the wing of John Cena he works hard and fights for America and The United, he is a powerful wrestler and former state champion bodybuilder, he often tags with Alex Riley and John Cena.
Bray Wyatt (Husky Harris) – He has no fear, he feels no pain and he is clinically insane. He is the monster underneath your bed, his relaxed approach is odd and his opponents are often scared or confused by him. He kisses his opponents before he does his disastrous finisher; he is most comparable to Mankind.
‘Ticking Time Bomb’ Dean Ambrose – He is very dark, and just a moment away from snapping, he is a modern day Brian Pillman but darker. He is crazy and enjoys getting hurt, often smiling or laughing during the pain. He is like a real life Joker.
‘The Long Island Iced Z’ Zack Ryder – The ‘Woo Woo’ kid, loved by the internet, especially his show True Long Island Story, which often airs on RAW in small segments. He is a kid from New York just pursuing his dream of being a wrestler; he is often in comedy segments rather than actual wrestling.
Leo ‘The Lion’ Kruger w/ Paul Heyman – A vicious south African, he hunts his prey and there in no getting out of his rear naked choke which makes his prey sleep. He believes he is great and no one can beat him. Paul Heyman claims he is the new next big thing and that he will destroy anyone in his path.
Kane – Tweener Kane who can kick ass but also be funny, he is the Big Red Machine who doesn’t care who he fights.
Rey Mysterio – The masked luchador the people love, the ultimate underdog with a high flying speciality.
Sin Cara – The prodigy of Rey Mysterio, he is high-flying and a superstar.
Hunico (masked) – A luchador, masked, he is dirty and doesn’t use the code of respect between luchadores.
Plazma (Trent Barreta) – Another cruiserweight type guy, he has that flashy and arrogant persona, he feels he is the best wrestler and deserves a shot at the Light Heavyweight Champion; he is often followed by photographers to the ring and is part of the group The Glamorous Ones.
‘Dynamite’ Tyson Kidd – He is explosive, the man who closed down the Hart Dungeon he was that good, he idolises Dynamite Kid and works to be as good as him, he has great technical skills and can also fly.
Yoshi Tatsu – The Japanese wrestler, often losing but always happy, he is essentially a comedic jobber but he puts a smile on people’s faces with his broken English and lack of understanding of what is going on.
Consequences Creed (Xavier Woods) – A fun loving guy, sporting the American colours, he is a take on of Apollo Creed and always brings excitement with his dancing and fun wrestling.
Seth ‘The Future’ Rollins – As it says on the tin, the future of wrestling in many people’s eyes, he is just starting out trying to work his way up the ladder, he has a more Japanese orientated style, which makes the wrestling faithful love him.
Richie Steamboat – Son of legendary Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat, he is in the business, for one thing, to make money off his father’s name, he will take any kind of shortcut to get more money and isn’t afraid to speak his mind.
Heath Slater – The one man band, baby! The legend jobber, his annoying singing style and arrogant attitude has granted him hate from the fans.
Curt Hawkins – He has the persona of magic mike, stripping in the ring before his matches and showing off his body to the audience, except no one wants to see it, the self-proclaimed ‘Sexiest Man in the World’.
The Kings of Wrestling (Antonio Cesaro and Kassius Ohno) – The tag team champions, the kings reign supreme in the tag division, they take pot shots at the crowd and their opponents by claiming that they are not on the level of the Kings.
Rhodes Scholars (Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow) w/David Otunga – The most intelligent tag team in all of wrestling, they study their opponents and make sure they are well-prepared for any match. They often choose not to compete if they feel that they are not well-prepared or if they see the match going in the opposition’s favour they will leave. They are accompanied by Harvard Lawyer David Otunga whose mere association with the team gets them heat; he also helps them to win with distractions.
The Funkbyrds (Brodus Clay and Santino Marella) w/Cameron and Naomi – A fun tag team, dancing with kids and having fun in the ring, they appeal to kids and anyone with a sense of humour and anyone who loves fun.
Primetime Players (Titus O'Neill and Darren Young) – They are all about making the millions of dollars, they arrive in expensive suits, O’Neill is the power and mouthpiece in the tag team, Young is the annoying guy in the background.
Perfection ('Mr Hollywood' Dolph Ziggler and 'The Prince of Perfect' Handsome Joe (Michael McGillicutty) w/ Ric Flair – Part of the Glamorous Ones they think they are prettier and better than everyone else and boy do they show it off. Ric Flair manages them as he looks to take them both to the top and is also a mouthpiece for the two, however they do also talk, but they are obviously not as good as the Nature Boy.
The Colons (Primo and Epico) w/ Rosa Mendes – A fast, high flying tag team with the attraction of Rosa Mendes, unfortunately they are often on the losing side of bouts, but this does not stop their determination or heart to succeed.
Sensational Samoans (The Uso's) – The Samoan dance before their matches always gets the crowd going, they are a power tag team, but are also quick on their feet.
The Great Khans (Jinder Mahal and Great Khali) – An anti-American tag team, sort of like Sheik & Volkoff, they appease towards the Taliban and side with them against USA in the Iraq war.
The Ascension (Kenneth Cameron and Connor O'Brian) – A dark tag team, mysterious and unforgiving, they are sort of like a mix between the Brood and the ministry. They are intimidating, serious and totally badass.
The Awesome Americans (Bateman and Swagger) – They represent patriarchy of America, they sport the USA colours and speak of God, Guns, America and Awesomeness. They are a comedic tag team with Bateman being naturally funny and Swagger being the more serious wrestler, they bounce off each other brilliantly.
Los Reyes de Lucha (Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio) – The Mexican high flyers are top class wrestlers who don’t break the rules and are technically gifted, aweing the crowd with every move. The Spanish translation is literally The Kings of Wrestling, which causes friction between them and the champs.
Empire (King Wade Barrett, Drew Wallace (McIntyre) and Gladiator Goliath (Mason Ryan) – Against the WWE and America they wish to create a European society within the WWE, specifically one that will invade and take over the rest of the WWE, just like the British Empire.
The United (Cena, Riley and Big E Langston) – The defenders of WWE and America, they are the opposition to Empire and will do anything they can to stop the invaders.
The Glamorous Ones (Perfection, Luscious Layla, The Fantastic Foxx and Plazma) – They are a group of beautiful people, they have their own Glamour lounge backstage which is only accessible to group members, vignettes are often shown here. They have created this group to separate themselves from the common, ugly and poor people.

The Fantastic Foxx (Alicia Fox) – Glamorous and beautiful, she is strange and sly, she takes advantage of opportunities, often winning with roll ups or by cheating, she claims to be ‘Fantastic’.
