THQ are really taking off with their promotion of WWE All Stars as of late with the Macho Man commercial which debuted over the weekend and now we have a cover art reveal for the new arcade fighter. As you can see, Randy Orton, John Cena, The Rock, Rey Mysterio, Kofi Kingston, Hulk Hogan (Which is surprising due to Hogan being in a competitor’s company as of now) and the Macho Man himself all grace the cover in their new cartoon-ish greatness. As well as this art which will grace the PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, PSP and Wii versions of the title’s cover is a new fact sheet THQ has put out for WWE All Stars to give fans a better idea of what to expect with WWE All Stars.
