IGN Writes: A few weeks ago, IGN debuted the details about Road To WrestleMania, WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009's story mode that has players choose from seven wrestlers and set out on a character-driven storyline that features voiceovers, cutscenes, and the works.
The Interwebs exploded. Fans launched message board posts demanding to know why only seven Superstars could be used in the mode, e-mails poured in demanding to know what this meant for created Superstars, and I'm pretty sure somewhere people burned a scarecrow made up to look like THQ Senior Creative Manager Cory Ledesma. Of course, all of these extreme reactions were a bit premature. THQ and Yuke's have been playing their cards close to their respective vests when it comes to SVR 09, so it was safe to assume they had something up their sleeves.
