Predator Technology was named after the WWE 12 cover star, Randy Orton. In an interview, Bryan Williams had this to say about the new Predator Technology:
"OK, we've improved our animation blending. In previous games some of the transitions from move to move were a bit clunky and kind of robotic, so with our new Predator tech, it's allowed us tostreamline the gameplay experience and the superstars' movements a lot more fluid and realisticthan what we've offered in the past. Our goal was to make it as fluid as one sees when you watch Raw or Smackdown or a WWE Pay-Per-View."
