IGN says 31. Let’s count ’em off:
01) La Parka Jr.
07) Psycho Clown
09) Charly Manson – still there!
10) Abismo Negro
14) Super Fly
15) Psicosis – was II! maybe now III?
Spotted in this recent batch of video
19) Extreme Tiger
20) Monster Clown
21) Kenzo Suzuki
22) Dr. Wagner Jr.
23) Silver King
24) Murder Clown
25) Alan Stone – quick shot of him in the new trailer in a three way with Electro & Charly
26) Escoria – he’s the guy Elegido is picking up for an Atlantida. You can see his facepaint briefly, and he’s wearing his corset gear
27) Jack Evans – see late Friday note.
28) El Brazo – via 1UP
31) mystery guy in red
5 spots left, with 20 possibilities: Jack Evans, Teddy Hart, Joe Lider, Nicho el Millionario, Laredo Kid, Aerostar, Alebrije, Crazy Boy, Pimpinela, Espiritu, Latin Lover, Histeria, Ultimo Gladiador, Black Abyss, Chris Stone, El Brazo, Decnnis, Billy Boy, Marco Corleone, and Oriental. Many of those guys are not still around, but this roster was finalized a while back and they haven’t taken out anyone who’s since left.
My guess is Jack, Teddy, Lider, Nicho and Crazy Boy. That last one is a bit of a reach because Marco or Latin would be a bigger deal, but Crazy would be so sad if he wasn’t in this game. I also can’t shake the feeling that we would’ve seen Jack & Teddy already if they were actually in this game, but I have no actual facts to base it on. If it were up to me, I’d make Kahoz or Espectro de Ultratumba a hidden boss of some sort, but I would be surprised to see it.
It may not even be 6 spots, though. There’s a guy shown briefly, in a red one strapped singlet, wearing red boots with a lightning bolt on them. He’s got Gronda’s colors and Silver King’s body, but doesn’t appear to be either of them.
The most recent WWE games have included extra downloadable wrestlers for a fee. No idea if this game will get that sort of support.
Safe to assume that women or mini would’ve been spotted by now if they were going to be in this game. Disappointing, but not altogether surprising. That’s for the next version.
Edit late Friday: I’ve been told Jack Evans was in the game by those playing it at the Acclaim show. I’ve also read X-Pac mentioned by a commenter in the game, though I don’t trust anonymous commenters enough to count him as confirmed. X-Pac in this game would be bizarre to anyone not familiar with 2008-2009 AAA. Heck, I watched 2009 AAA and it still seems bizarre.
Edit: I forgot to take Escoria out from up in that paragraph.
