It just struck me as a bit odd.
Marketing.

"So how did you get hooked on WoW?!"
"Err... I... I read about it, and it kinda looked neat..."
"AND WHAT MADE YOU REMAIN IN GLORIOUS AZEROTH?"
"Uhm.. it's a pretty fun game, I guess?"

That's not exactly a great image to sell.

Well, instead of that you could still talk about the average athletic guy/girl who doesn't normally play games, but got totally hooked on WoW through a relative or friend.

Or someone that likes to play it CASUALLY.

I would not go that far they even had Celebs being shown.. They just tried to show as many types of people as they could with it not taking up the entire documentary since that could be one in itself. They promoted it all and showed all the great the game has done for people rather than treating the nerd as a insult with insights to Blizzard themselves.

100% sure about it.

3) Warcraft patch 6.1 preview
Probably Blood Elf model shown as well

4) Starcraft 2: Void of the Swarm (I forgot what it's called).
Definitely news, information and probably playable demo.

5) Costume contest winner female dressed as Pandaren Female, remember this prediction folks.

6) Diablo and Hearthstone and Blizzard heroes shit I don't care about.

7) It smells really bad inside.

8) Metallica has no idea what Warcraft is.

9) At least one of yous from the forum asks a stupid question.

10) Someone will ask what happened to Garrosh's shoulder horns and if we can loot them.
This was my least successful prediction of all time.

Hell, that mount is based on the little unicorn head on the flags of Elven Destroyers from Warcraft II.
