Lets Play WWE 2K16 - Bo Knows Defeat

Hello Dwellers, and welcome to the Basement.... 

So not wanting to have the depressing ramblings of my views on how the media is all about the dollar when it comes to tragedy and exploiting the families of victims... I did a quick match from MyCareer mode in WWE 2K16.

And at the pace I'm going the PC version of WWE 2K16 will already be available by the time I become a World Champion. Still the match is fairly quick, and places the created wrestler 'The King' Arthur Knight up against Bo Dallas... who surprisingly kicked out of a lot of stuff in this match

In very first issue, it’s established that Bane is now running the Gotham crime scene, and Catwoman is stealing on his behalf. We are introduced to her supporting cast, Arizona, who takes the role of Selina’s sidekick, and Leopold, a weak-spine chap who acts as an emissary of sorts between her and Bane, and there is obvious tension between the two sides as Bane loves to have his ‘workers’ checked up on in order to keep them in line & wants to know who she is…. And then there is Ban…
