Vortex Effect Is Pleased To Announce That Network Site PW Main Event Is Officially Launched

PW Main Event

Today, Vortex Effect expands a little with the creation of The Vortex Effect Network, and the official launch of PW Main Event. This site was created in 2011 to cover many different topics. Primarily a wrestling and gaming site, Vortex Effect also had movie news and reviews, MMA, sports, some occasional music, and even political posts (Ron Paul!). Over time, we completely dropped the politics and music and ultimately shifted more towards being a gaming first site. As of today, we're also dropping wrestling from the things we cover here on Vortex Effect. Unlike politics and music though, we're doing so because we want to do MORE wrestling stuff. I know the audience we get. I see where you're coming from and what you're searching for to get here. I know what articles you're reading, and … [Read more...]

No More Wrestling Content on Vortex Effect

WWE Logo

We started this site in April 2011 and the very first post was a wrestling post. The site was intended to be largely a wrestling site with a focus also on gaming and movie reviews; very much a hybrid mashing of our different interests. Overtime, the site has shifted more and more towards video games and the wrestling took a back seat, mostly. The initial audience we had for wrestling stuff left, seemingly not caring about all the gaming stuff that was dominating (can't say I blame them). Likewise, not too many of our current readership cares about the wrestling content. So, while Vortex Effect remains a hybrid site of gaming and movies, and even sports occasionally, there will be no more wrestling content here (unless its about a video game). Why are sports allowed and wrestling has to … [Read more...]

The Icon Sting Announced As Pre-order Bonus for WWE 2K15

WWE 2K15

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpWoquodmPs For the first time ever, wrestling icon and the franchise of WCW STING will appear in a WWE ring... in video game form. Last night during Monday Night RAW, WWE debuted the above trailer announcing that two versions of Sting will be available as DLC for those who pre-order the game. You can check out which versions of Sting in the roster art below (not in-game shots though). Sting is available when you pre-order at any participating retailer, which is sure to be most of them here in the states. WWE 2K15 hits PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 on October 28th. Smith's Sentiment: I'm obviously super excited that Sting, one of my favorites of all time (I didn't write under the screen name "Stinger" for years for no reason after all), will … [Read more...]

Darren Young Revealed for WWE 2K15 Roster

WWE 2K15

Today at the GaymerX convention, WWE superstar Darren Young announced that he would be a part of the WWE 2K15 roster. That makes Young a returning character, as he was on the 2K14 roster as well. 2K released the below roster art to coincide with his announcement. He joins John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Cesaro, Hulk Hogan, AJ Lee, Naomi, and Cameron as announced superstars and divas thus far. WWE 2K15 hits stores on October 28th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: The more the merrier. I always enjoy the legends, but really they should be additional folks after all of the current WWE roster makes it to the game. So I'm glad Young is making it in the game once again this year. I'm excited to see some real PS4/Xbox One gameplay footage hopefully … [Read more...]

Geeky Vortex #1: Transforming The WWE Diva’s Division

Geeky Vortex

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the first installment of Geeky Vortex, a new collaborative column series from myself and Nikki from the great blog Geeky Nikki. For this first edition, we decided on a wrestling topic (which will probably be pretty common for this series). More specifically, the surprising return of AJ Lee to WWE a week ago has us talking about WWE's Diva's division and how we would change the division to make it more serious. For this first outing, we're running with a simple layout. Nikki's thoughts and ideas will come first, and then my section will come after hers. This basically allows you to read two different columns in one. Maybe in the future we can add some interactivity between the two of us, but for now we're going with the basic. Drop us some comments leaving … [Read more...]

John Cena Is The WWE 2K15 Cover Superstar

WWE 2K15

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon revealed the cover of WWE 2K15 tonight on RAW, and as many of us figured it is new WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. WWE 2K15 hits stores on October 28th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: That's not a surprise, but I don't have much of a problem with it. It has been a few years since Cena last appeared on the cover anyway. The cover itself looks pretty good; I like it better than last year's. I wouldn't be surprised to see WWE and 2K run another contest allowing fans to make their own covers with the winning cover being printed on the reverse of the actual cover. That's just a guess though. Now 2K, please don't make us wait until Summer Slam to start seeing anything about this game that is releasing in OCTOBER. A screen shot … [Read more...]

WWE 2K15 Cover To Be Revealed LIVE Tonight on RAW

WWE 2K15

WWE and 2K has announced that the cover for WWE 2K15 will be be revealed light tonight on RAW by Stephanie McMahon. RAW airs at 7pm CT on USA Network. https://twitter.com/StephMcMahon/status/483731717367558145 https://twitter.com/WWEgames/status/483731937308053504 WWE 2K15 hits stores on October 28th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: I'm not even going to venture a guess, but nonetheless I'm hyped for the game this year. Also worth noting that the previous two years the cover has been revealed on RAW, and on that same night a trailer has debuted. If that historical trend continues, we should see our first look at the game tonight. … [Read more...]

WWE Money in the Bank 2014 Predictions


It's been a while since I have written anything wrestling related for the site, but since I'm actually looking forward to Money in the Bank (and was inspired to write my own after reading Nikki's predictions on her wonderful blog GeekyNikki) I've decided to write up my predictions for tonight's WWE Money in the Bank event on PPV and of course WWE Network. Now I'm not going to just try to predict the winner of every match, I'm also going to try and predict the match order for the entire night. There are seven matches announced, and none of them have been announced for the pre-show (that seems to be a Daniel Bryan interview), so I should be good to go since I doubt they add in another match. So I'll start my predictions off with the match I think will open the show, and will end with the … [Read more...]

WWE 2K15 Gets October 28th Release Date


There were reports circulating that 2K and WWE were going to release the next WWE game in March 2015 to coincide with WrestleMania, but today we got official confirmation that the game will indeed be releasing this year: October 28th to be exact.

Furthermore, we can also confirm that it will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
