There are several reasons why this is awesome.
In every game prior, if Cena did a 5Knuckle Shuffle, anything in his path would magically slide out of the way, whether it's a ladder, table, ring steps or whatever. THIS time however.... WWE '12 uses physics!
I know this may be a small thing. And this MIGHT look stupid, at first. But think about it. Objects have WEIGHT and presence, now. Tables mean something. It's realistic, and you must use strategy when using weapons in a match because they just might hinder you as well as help. I like this.
And plus.... It's a virtual John Cena doing something retarded. That also merits it some awesome points.
