Find out which of your favorite WWE Superstars, Divas, Legends and “Attitude Era” luminaries will be featured in WWE ’13!
We’ve seen all your Tweets, Facebook posts, forum threads, skywriting, carrier pigeons, smoke signals and rented blimps, and we know exactly what you want: WWE ’13 roster information. Well, thankfully, you won’t have to wait much longer, as the largest roster in WWE Games history will be revealed this Saturday, August 18 at WWE SummerSlam Axxess. Even if you can’t join us for all the fun in Los Angeles, you can still watch everything go down live via streams at both IGN.com and WWE.com.
The action kicks off at 1:30 p.m. PDT in the NOKIA Plaza at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles with the WWE ’13 Roster Reveal Pre-Show, presented by IGN. The event will feature IGN’s own Richard George, as well as two members of the WWE Games development team: Creative Director Cory Ledesma and Senior Game Designer Bryan Williams.

Then, at 2:00 p.m. PDT, it’s the main event you’ve all been waiting for: The WWE ’13 Live Roster Reveal, presented by IGN.
