THQ Announces More Classics for WWE Legends of Wrestlemania

Stone Cold and The Rock join roster of upcoming historical wrestling game.

THQ has announced that six people will adorn the cover of its upcoming wrestling game, WWE Legends of Wrestlemania. In case you forgot, that's the wrestling game that will feature simplified controls and will allow you to relive a lot old Wrestlemania main events in video game form, such as Wrestlemania III, where Hulk Hogan body slammed Andre the Giant, who was joined by Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.

We already knew that those three would appear in the game, and they'll make up half of the wrestlers on the cover. But they'll also be joined by Jimmy Hart, another classic manager, along with more-recent superstars, Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock.

I would just like to reiterate that this game is nothing without "Macho Man" Randy Savage. And now, enjoy this video taken from Wrestlemania III.

As long as Jimmy  "Superfly" Snuka is on the roster, I'm content. Honorable mention to the Macho Man. The guy could  really work a microphone..   Oh Yeah!

I love that video. HULKAMANIA!!
I remember that match, it was awesome.
and yes, No Macho Man, or Ultimate Warrior for that matter, makes this game just that much less epic.

NOPE this game is indeed Nothing without Randy Savage. Cup o Coffee in the big time! Ohhhh Yeeeeaahhhhh! A Million Percent!!

The chances of Randy Savage and Ultimate Warrior being in this game are slim. Which means, the chances of me buying this game are slim.

I 'd rather to watch the actual wrestling shows and buy the WWE DVDs .

Brilliance in all forms!

Needs Ultimate Warrior.

Hulk was the shit man, when I was a kid he was like a super hero.

Poor Hogan. =(

Damn I miss Austin

Screw the Ultimate Warrior.  His self-centered pseudo-religion and now extreme right wing conservative views negate any of the entertainment value he provided  in his WWF days.  The steroid abuse got to his head and made him legitimately crazy.

This game needs Brett Hart in it without a doubt, and hopefully "simplified" controls translates to them bringing back the classic THQ/AIKI N64 wrestling game controls.

Thanks for that match Jeff! . Ah, the memories.

When I watched wrestling in the late 90s/early 00s, it was all about Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock.

wrestling is gay. 

its for guys too embarrassed to admit they like broadway and soaps. 


seriously why did the giant where a female bathingsuit? hahaha
Posted by CrazyRalph023

This game will have a lot of expectations, especially considering it's trying to appeal to a larger demographic than its recent titles. Hopefully the simplified controls will be easy, yet intuitive enough to bring forth a good, playable game.

Agreed, the Macho Man will be missed in this game, which always leads to the speculation of why Vince McMahon pretty much "shunned" him from WWE altogether. Perhaps it will be revealed in the game =P

Jeff has been writing a lot of articles about things I really don't care about. They're all funny and appropriately informative, but they never effect me in any way.

Last time wrestling was anygood 2000 w\ The Rock, Stone Cold and HHH.
The Rock was the last legend of wrestling ever.
p.s. i was 13 in 2000 that could have something to do with it.

We just need a game that plays like WWE No Mercy... Then we'll talk.

@TwoOneFive

I'm not gay, and I used to enjoy watching wrestling.  I also quite like musicals, but I'm pretty comfortable with my sexuality.  I'm guessing it's you who aren't.
I've never really understood why liking musicals makes someone gay anyway.  You can laugh at that all you want, but I'm the one who gets to go them with all the girls :)

Wrestling doesn't interest me, at all. :D

Posted by Lepuke

The game needs to have Bret Hart, Mr. Perfect, and Bam Bam Bigelow for sure, hopefully even The Honky Tonk Man.

Posted by SM2099

If this game has the same friggin engine as the SVR 08, then THQ should just give up already.

Posted by ManMadeGod

I love how they throw all that food and junk at Andre when he enters and leaves.
*sigh* Wrestling used to be so good.

Posted by Media_Master

That still won't get me into wrestling

Posted by AlucardaLaCarte

What you all don't understand is that Ultimate Warrior was sent in a capsule, from a place not from here, and he came not to give, but just to take. Not to want, but just to sin. Sin the power of the Warrior down the throats of everyone in the WWF until they get sick of it.
Also: Macho got him some pre-legal PT from the boss' daughter...that's the kind of thing that'll ruin a perfectly good working relationship.
