According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE has been using several former WWE superstars to help develop their upcoming “SmackDown vs. RAW 2009” video game. Mighty Mike (Spirit Squad member Mikey), Nick Nemeth (Spirit Squad member Nicky), Billy Kidman and Al Snow have been doing motion captures for the game. The four former WWE superstars wrestlers have been performing the moves, ring entrances, trademark mannerisms and taunts for all the WWE superstars. The ten-hour work days have left the guys pretty banged up.
Last week’s Friday Night Smackdown did a 2.7 broadcast rating.
WWE is returning to Switzerland later this year with a live show at the Indoor Stadium in Zurich, Switzerland on November 13th, 2008. Tickets go on sale April 15th, 2008 at 8 AM. (credit: Devin Cutting)
