I don't know where it came from, but it's completely bogus. THQ's WWE 13 website just posted a news article that talks about them previewing the new DLC pack Monday night, and it specifically says Ryback, Drew, AJ, Tensai, Tatsu and Natalya. Does not mention Sandow or Cesaro at all as being released with it.
I've read this entire thread over the course of 2 weeks.
First Song: CM Punks theme First Match: Mark Henry vs Orton
I've played through AE Mode and unlocked everything. Highly enjoyable. I haven't purchased a WWE game since SVR (feat. ECW) 08. Rented the game at redbox and decided to keep it.
Started on my Universe, so far I've completed 1 month of programming. I'm using very few AE guys. I've download a ton of CAWS and updated the entrances w/ the proper themes including the arena sounds. I'll share those if any of you want them, just DM me.
Monday: Raw Is War
WWE Champ (Eagle title): CM Punk
Tuesday: Internet ONLY Show
Internet Champ: 4 week tournament to determine the Champion.

Friday: Nitro (Found an awesome Friday Night Nitro logo)
US Champ: Jeff Jarrett
Saturday: House Show
Minor Show which features matches w/ current & legend superstars. Jake the Snake & Wade Barrett have been having an amazing feud.

Finally had the chance to set my PS3 up downstairs with the big HD TV, and had my first go with AE mode. Yeah, I'm loving it . I like the challenges in the matches too, and not those fucking stupid ones like we've seen in career modes before (beat Kane in super merga hard mode in 2 minutes or some shit lol). Just done the first HIAC match. Disappointed that the actual match takes place after almost everything else has happened . Would have been cool to start as The Undertaker then switch to HBK for the finish. Ah well. Street fight between Cactus and HHH is a super fucking fun match to do .
My biggest complaint for the game so far though is something that I was complaining about last year; the fucking reversal system. Its utter shite. Please give us a new one next year. The whole "too early" and "too late" crap pisses me off too. I press the button when I see the icon on screen... and it just seems to be completely random as to whether I'm "too early", "too late" or actually reverse the move. Sometimes I'll press it and it won't even tell me I've fucked it up. I'll just get hit with the move. Urgh. And I wish they'd sort out the difficulty too. Hard mode should NOT just be the CPU reversing the fuck out of everything. That's not fun or challenging. Its just fucking annoying and stupid.
