Along the way, they’ll pay homage to legends of pro wrestling, including Booker T, Andre The Giant, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Diamond Dallas Page, Jeff Jarrett, and many more. So strap on your wrestling boots, prep those entrance pyros, and get ready to become the cream of the crop in this spectacular wrestling RPG adventure.
“Well, after that kick-out two weeks ago, it’s about time for the main event, don’t you think? Wrestling fans around the world better grab their front-row tickets to the wrestling show of the year,” said Jeff Jarrett, Wrestling Hall of Fame Legend. “It’s not going to be an easy road for players to go from an aspiring rookie to world champ, but they can live out that story right here. We can’t wait to see players take control of the ring today!”
