WWE SummerSlam is here, folks! Yours truly will be journeying from my New York City home to Los Angeles tomorrow to attend the THQ WWE Community Summit, and to rock out with a handful of other community sites, and the guys over at THQ, at SummerSlam tomorrow evening – nothing like sharing the blood and sweat off of the backs of gargantuan gladiators with a group of great men, I say!

While we will be feverishly yelling at the top of our lungs in sheer excitement and overloading on testosterone at SummerSlam while taking pictures of your favorite stars, one of our main purposes for attending the THQ WWE Community Summit – besides having a plethora of fun (sorry Francois) – is to bring back some nifty impressions for THQ’s upcoming Smackdown vs. Raw 2011. I’ll be getting some hand-on time with the game, all while asking a series of questions that will, hopefully, quench your curiosity regarding the changes and implementations made to this year’s Smackdown vs. Raw title.

I apologize for throwing this salivating moment in your faces, guys – I really am. But just know that we’re doing this for you… kind of. Those of you who are hardcore WWE and/or Smackdown vs. Raw fans, we encourage you to provide us with any questions that you would like for me to ask the developers on your behalf. The more questions you give in, the more details you’ll more than likely get. And, at this juncture, we’re trying to give you as much info as possible.

This is my first time ever attending a live WWE event. Just know that if you see pictures of me looking like a pre-teen girl at a Jonas Brothers concert where I’m screaming and/or crying, it’s because I’m probably more excited than baby at a topless bar. I’ll be bunking with Rudy Colon from, where we will be tagteam partners participating in TLC (Table, Ladders and Chairs) matches at the hotel with the rest of the sites attending. He’ll be wearing spandex shorts and baseball gloves; I’ll be wearing a leotard with large spiked armbands and tape on my feet. Okay, we probably won’t be doing any of this, but we’re sure as hell going to have a blast!
