THQ recently announced the full roster for their upcoming WWE ’13 featuring the much-hyped return of the Attitude Era wrestlers. All of the top modern wrestlers like CM Punk, John Cena, and The Miz will be joined by old-school favorites The Rock, Bret “Hitman” Hart, Stone Cold Steve Austin and others.
I’m guessing many of our younger wrestling fans are wondering “What’s the Attitude Era?”
Well, compared to the family-friendly WWE these days, the WWF Attitude Era was an edgier time during the early 90′s to the early 2000′s to attract young adults and more mature audiences. The Era was highlighted with the birth and domination of Austin 3:16, the infamous Montreal Screwjob, an edgier Degeneration-X, and the birth of popular Hell in a Cell, Buried Alive, and Hardcore matches.

Earlier this year, a group of Canadian scientists released a study that proved what gamers have known for more than 20 years; video games are good for mental health.
According to the scientists, exergames (or games that require the players motion aka. motion-controlled gaming) can be good for brain function. Scientists reported that the combination of concentration and physical movement (required from many motion-enabled games) slows down the brain’s cognitive decline. Cognitive functions decline as people age, so the additional concentration and focus required to be successful at these games help stave off degeneration.
The study also shows that people who played these exergames proved to be physically healthier than those who do not. In addition to that, the study shows that these games increased one’s decision-making abilities (also known as executive function).
