Couple things to take away from that clip. Both positives to me.

First Honky Tonk Man isn't wrestling in his jumpsuit. Already good news.

Then, this confirms at least a second attire for Bret Hart as that's different from the attire he was wearing in the screen shot IGN released of him.

The great news about this attire? The one in this clip is an attire that he didn't start wearing until the Hart Foundation in '97. That SHOULD be confirmation on what attire we should be getting for Bulldog and a potential Brian Pillman and possibly Owen Hart inclusion.

I'll agree with King's positives and add a negative. The audio in this game is still bad. I know the Sharpshooter isn't the most exciting move, but no pop for a finisher? Maybe one of these days they'll put some resources into the audio.

UGH, I was afraid of this before even watching the video. IRL when Bret does the sharpshooter, he puts his right hand just a little above the left knee/thigh area of the opponent and pulling it back/up, or sometimes gripping the tights or knee pad (just Google image search "bret hart sharpshooter" and you'll see). He also sits a little lower in his squat.

The hand placement here is more like Sting's when he does the Scorpion Deathlock.

It's just a minor detail, but as a Bret Hart fan it really irks me.

They probably copy pasted the two moves and called them separate even though they are actually identical moves. But 2k is known for their attention to detail so who knows...

Looks great so far, but I wonder if we will have a sharpshooter with both opponents standing. That'd be awesome

Definitely minor, but it's one of the things that bugs me too. Like the difference between Undertaker's Tombstone and Kane's Tombstone. Undertaker lifts up on his toes with the Tombstone while Kane just drops to his knees, almost jumping with it. Meanwhile in damn near every Smackdown game since they went to Smackdown vs Raw has only had Undertaker's Tombstone for the two of them.

If Owen makes it in the game, I hope they put in his Sharpshooter (which he does with his right leg as opposed to Bret stepping through with the left).

Really for the sane guys that all the 2k sports series.....the commentary is drab,dead and boring

The crowd looks dead, not much reaction once the sharpshooter was locked in.
