I miss the old career mode on shut your mouth and here comes pain I wish universe mode were more like this, were you could change and choose who wins and have something similar to ewrevenge if anyone remembers that game.
Also I'm pumped that steve Austin will be main focus of this years showcase didn't like this years, so will be buying this game deffo on release date.
MyCareer is back, and this time it goes a lot further, all the way to you gaining admission to the WWE Hall of Fame.
Create a Diva, Create a Show, Create an Arena, and Create a Championship are back in!
WWE Universe: Wrestlers can now be booked to multiple shows
Online has been "overhauled."
Three-man commentary team, with John "Bradshaw" Layfield joining King and Cole.
Ladder, handicap, and tornado tag match types added back in.
No loading screens between entrances, and you can assault opponents during their entrance!Improved ref and manager AI.
Daniel Bryan's model is finally updated with the long hair and proper beard length. Balor's entrance is sick and can't wait to use Rollins. I wonder though: will the Curb Stomp will be in the game? Not necessarily as Seth's finisher but maybe a selectable finisher in create a move set.
