Another death has been blamed on WWE this time in an incident in Germany. Standing trial for murder, 19 year old German Steffen G. proceeded to drink 1 bottle of beer followed by two bottles of wine and a bottle of chocolate liqueur, and then killed a homeless man, blaming the video game ‘Smackdown! vs RAW 2006’ for his actions. Right before he committed the murder, he played the game with his friend and lost every match. On the way home, he decided to see how “severely he could hurt somebody” and he ended up murdering another person. Experts will now testify in the courtroom about ‘killer video games’ where the WWE game ‘Smackdown! vs RAW 2006’ is not expected to be part of that category.
A 30 men battle royal will highlight this Monday’s RAW live from the Verizon Center in Washington, DC., for a three hour special edition of the WWE’s flagship program. Starting an hour earlier than usual – at 8PM EST – the show will open with a 30 men battle royal with the winner going to face John Cena for the WWE title later in the broadcast.
