The big roster is making my decision on buying the game for me. Most of NXT being in there is exactly what I want.

I don't see the point of having matches exclusive to Showcase... It's a moronic idea.

Besides that, there's a lot of good things there if it's all legit.

I'm hoping all the regular NXT talent are in

I have to raise an eyebrow to the Q&A, especially on the part where the guy states "I QUIT" matches are only exclusive to the Showcase mode. The "I QUIT" match was a feature as a regular match type going back to WWE 2K14. Why make it Showcase exclusive only now? That would be like taking the Inferno Match and making it Showcase Exclusive as well.

So if this is to be believe there will be in crowd fighting but to a certain degree. I really hope the small environment we have to work with is interactive.

The attire update would be pretty cool, as long as it's adding to a superstars attire and not taking away from it. I.E. I don't want to lose Dolph Ziggler's "Over It" attire just to gain his "Harley Davidson" attire.

Hoping for the Hogan & Austin Showcases some WCW & ECW matches are thrown in so we can get some premade arenas.

As much as I want to let my hope rise, I'm taking this with a huge grain of salt.

He isn't very good saying heath Slater is in on the q&a and neglects to include him on his "leaked roster"

No Edge :(

Still, the list is awesome
Again, I would put no faith in the Q&A. If there is a John Cena showcase, as has been rumored and it's following John Cena's career, I would think Edge would have to be included since they had a heated rivalry going back to when Edge cashed in the first ever Money In the Bank contract against him.

Apparently, that guy also leaked a roster and well, if this is true, I'm buying the game Day One, even if they show nothing about the game. I mean, NXT and legends like Owen freaking Hart :mark: but of course, I'm sure that guy is just giving false hope with a fake list...

Of course it's fake. Why on earth would Papa Shango make the cut when he's never had a match against Hogan?
