WWE.com recently tackled a fun hypothetical question. How would John Cena fare in the Attitude Era? Who better to ask than the king of the Attitude Era himself, Stone Cold Steve Austin.
The Texas Rattlesnake has done a lot of media over the last several months promoting the WWE 13 video game. The video game concept is to recreate the Attitude Era with your favorite stars of the era along with the current WWE superstars. The concept of mixing and matching has been the driving marketing campaign and it would appear that THQ and the WWE are making one last push to close out 2012.
Steve Austin was interviewed on WWE.com about the game and the Attitude Era. The interview is fantastic but there is one snippet that is most interesting to fans of today and the era. Austin talks John Cena and how the future WWE Hall of Famer ..click here to read more

Bret “The Hitman” Hart has never been shy about his feelings towards Hulk Hogan. That is why it is no surprise to see the former WWE champion take every opportunity possible to take shots at his former colleague including a recent interview promoting the WWE Attitude game.
The Bret Hart-Hulk Hogan rivalry is one of the most entertaining to follow as a fan who watched both during their prime. For years neither man said complimentary things about the other, until of course they worked together in WCW. Now that WCW is long gone and they won’t be working together anymore, the gloves have come off with Bret throwing most of the shots.
Bret took a shot at the former WWF champion to help promote the new WWE Attitude game in a recent interview. Bret talked a bit about the transition between Hogan’s era and the Attitude era and why it ..click here to read more

The newest piece of the WWE 13 marketing puzzle is an interview with Steve Austin. I don’t know how badly this video wants to make me buy the game, but I am even more pumped for a potential Austin vs. CM Punk match coming out of this interview.
I am not a big fan of WWE video games but the marketing for WWE 13 has been the most brilliant I can ever recall when it comes to a wrestling game. This whole idea of building off of an Austin vs. Punk dream match as incentive to buy the video game is fantastic. We’ll see in several weeks if it pays off but one thing is for sure. These videos have fans more convinced than ever that Punk and Austin will be tangling at an upcoming WrestleMania event.
This is just a tremendous video. Austin stays in character the whole time reminding us ..click here to read more

THQ and WWE are continuing a brilliant marketing campaign today with the official release of a video featuring Stone Cold Steve Austin and CM Punk. The idea is to get you hyped over matching them up in WWE 13 yet most will come away salivating over a potential WrestleMania match.
The dynamic in this video is tremendous. I didn’t believe that there were money dream matches left in pro wrestling but after watching this, I have to second guess myself. This video has money written all over it. Jim Ross moderates as the two WWE superstars from different eras argue Punk’s success during the Attitude Era and whether Austin could take WWE’s title among other things.
THQ sent over the video today with a short blurb. Here is a piece of the press ..click here to read more
