The People's Champion to appear on the cover of WWE '12
9/19/2011 5:56:00 PM
THQ has announced that in it's first ever consumer vote to select the cover superstar for WWE '12, the people have chosen The Rock to grace the cover. The voting was between The Rock and John Cena, and I'm glad that The Rock got the vote, as that's who I voted for. Nothing against Cena, but I've always been more of a fan of The Rock. Personal opinion really. The Collector's Edition of WWE '12, also dubbed "The People's Edition", will include the game, a foil sleeve cover featuring The Rock, The Rock as an in-game playable character, a Blu-Ray/DVD of The Rock's appearances back in February and April, a foil Topps trading card of The Rock, and an art image. Provided I get a 360 down the road a bit, I'll definitely be picking this one up because, let's face it, the PS3 and 360 versions are typically better than the Wii versions.
