The Attitude Era is seen by many as the best and most fun period in WWE history. Because of this, every year many fans use the creation features in WWE games to make their favourite stars, arenas, etc. that aren’t included in the game.
This year, WWE 13 will feature the Attitude era strongly, allowing fans to relive this popular era in WWE. But which storylines will be featured specifically? We’ve chosen eight that we think are essential and gave them a bit of fantasy booking for the upcoming game. For the record, I would have included Jericho vs. Benoit, but for fairly obvious reasons, Benoit won’t be included in the game.
1. Tyson vs. Austin
Let’s get the obvious one out of the way first. We all know that Mike Tyson is going to feature in WWE 13, we’ve all seen the adverts and we’ve all seen him in his DX Attire. This means that they will almost definitely include Tyson’s early 1998 storyline with DX and Austin.
Vince McMahon unveiled Tyson on a memorable Raw episode in January as a special guest for WrestleMania 14. Immediately, Stone Cold Steve Austin took offense to Tyson being labeled as “the Baddest Man on the Planet.” This extended storyline could work as almost a January to March “Road to WrestleMania’” for Stone Cold, running through the events that led up to Austin vs. HBK at WrestleMania 14.
This would include having to win the 1998 Royal Rumble and taking part in various angles and matches on Raw like Austin’s real life matches in this period against Kane and the Road Dogg. This would also let fans relive the main event of the PPV before WrestleMania, No Way Out in Texas, provided they shape around a few other wrestlers.
This would all of course lead to the big WWE Title match between Austin and Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania with Mike Tyson as the Special Guest Enforcer. Although a strong storyline by itself, this could also be included as part of a much larger Austin vs. McMahon storyline, which we’ll get to later.
