Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka
Dream opponent: Sin Cara
The original high flyer cemented his legacy after being the first wrestler to leap off a 15-foot high steel cage onto the mat. After spending his entire career tossing himself from the top ropes, Snuka’s WWE’12 entrance seems inevitable, especially when you consider the type of death-defying matches he can pull off versus the likes of Sin Cara or Evan Bourne. And seeing how “Superfly” stands as the inaugural ECW World Champ, it’d be pretty cool to return the title back to its rightful owner thanks to WWE resurrecting the belt in the game.
Bret “The Hitman” Hart
Dream opponent: John Cena
Would it be totally clichéd to quote the wrestling great? Don’t answer. However you put it, Hart’s infamous spiel still holds true in the minds of many wrestling fans. Well, maybe not amongst “Heartbreak Kid” enthusiasts. Nonetheless, “The Hitman’s” technical prowess and agility make him a worthy competitor amongst any of today’s WWE elite. And we’re sure most gamers would love to put the “Excellence of Execution” to the test against poster boy and umpthteen-time former champion: John Cena. If you feel no modern wrestler could lace his boots, there’s always the option to create a story arch and screw Bret once again.
