That Time Ah-Nuld Replaced Hulkster

In a scene damn near out of science fiction itself, WWE has replaced just about every ounce of Hulk Hogan-related material over the past couple days. This includes the DLC of Hulk Hogan in WWE 2K15 and the upcoming WWE 2K16 games. The last time I can remember this sort of thing happening was with Chris Benoit. Now, even though Hulk's actions were pretty bad, I don't know if placing he and Benoit on the same level of heinousness is fair. But, for more on that whole shebang, you can read my op-ed over on SpeedontheBeat.com.

In his place in the games, however? 2015 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator. Now, that's kind of bad-ass. We finally get to solve some of those death matches we dreamed up as kids. For instance, I always wondered who'd win between The Terminator and The Rock. Yeah, The Terminator is a cyborg, but The Rock's People's Elbow has fell many WWE superstars, despite the fact that it's really just an elbow drop with a shitload of theatrics. But, it also makes me raise a few eyebrows. It's like having Bill Clinton appear in NBA Jam. It's cool and a nice Easter Egg, but to have it be a main attraction? Eh...

At least we get this bad-ass promo video for it, parodying Terminator 2.
