    Metroidvania

    Concept »

    A style of action-adventure gameplay revolving around exploring a labyrinth with the necessity of locating new items and equipment to progress beyond otherwise impassable obstacles. The concept is named for its common usage in the Metroid and Castlevania franchises. While the term most commonly refers to 2D games, it can also refer to 3D games.

    They need to make a wrestling themed one of these and call it Wrestlevania.

    Even better, have a Castlevania-themed wrestling event and call that WrestleVania.

    Young Blood Brass Band's Wrestlevania can be the theme song too.

    I give you Season 4 of VGCW. Probably not what you are looking for, but probably about as close as you are going to get.
