What is it with old-school arcade revivals this year?  First The Simpsons Arcade Game made a comeback on both Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, entertaining a whole new generation of gamers without the need to break out a roll of quarters.  Now THQ is hitting the wrestling ring with a remake of WWE Wrestlefest, a game that originally body slammed into arcades back in ’91 under Technos’ direction.  And just like it did back then, Wrestlefest promises to be button-mashing fun.

World Wrestling Entertainment's latest pay-per-view, Summerslam, happens this Sunday, with a number of matches set to thrill the attending folks in Los Angeles.  As part of the festivities, THQ teamed up with the company to reveal the full roster for its upcoming WWE 12, which will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii on November 22.  While a bunch of big names made the cut, we were also surprised to see a few other folks in there, too.
