Since 2K Sports and WWE both want to increase the number of copies sold, the decision has been made to eliminate some of the features on the game so that the roster can be the biggest one ever. The feeling is that the additional wrestlers are going to be the main draw. This also means that we are going to see more of the NXT stars in the game, so guys like Tyler Breeze and Kevin Owens should be included in the next edition.

On April 11, Booker T is running a Reality of Wrestling show at the Clear Lake Sports Complex in Houston. He really wants a great showing, so he is turning to two of the biggest legends that professional wrestling has ever seen. Bret Hart and Ricky Steamboat have both signed on to make an appearance at the show. Neither of them are in any shape to do a match, so chances are, they will simply be there to cut promos in the ring.

Since there are still some financial issues lingering, ROH is said to be quite desperate to get a television deal done with Spike TV. The move would help resolve a lot of things, and it would help them advance to a point in business that they have never been before. However, there is a major obstacle standing in the way of Joe Koff. The network is concerned about being associated with a scripted sport because they want to emphasize real sports.
