I’ve always been a huge fan of WWE, since I was young. Over the last four or five years, however, it’s become increasingly marketed towards kids, and I had that confirmed when I went to check out the WWE’s Australian show last weekend and noticed the sea of John Cena shirts and the insane, collective scream of 15,000 children when Cena hit the stage. WWE Brawl is most likely for them – it sure as hell isn’t for me!
In fact, WWE Brawl actually reminds me of that bizarre WWF cartoon with Hulk Hogan, Rowdy Roddy Piper and Andre the Giant they used to show in the 80s (sweet lord this post is making me feel old).
While WWE All Stars, I felt, was really created for older fans like me – with an inflated sense of nostalgia – WWE Brawl is definitely more for the kids.
