E3 2001: Legends of Wrestling announced for Playstation 2 and GameCube.

Acclaim announces Legends of Wrestling, where classic wrestling personalities face off.


At E3 2001, Acclaim announced its upcoming wrestling game, Legends of Wrestling. What separates Legends from other current wrestling games is its exclusive licensing of the greatest wrestling personalities of yesteryear.

You'll be able to grapple with the likes of Bret "The Hitman" Hart, Jerry "The King" Lawler, "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, "The Ugandan Giant" Kamala, Terry Funk, George "The Animal" Steele, and many more. Each wrestler is accompanied by interactive entrance routines, crowd responses, and authentic taunts. A total of 30 old-school wrestlers will be available for competition in the more than 12 types of matches, which include barbed wire, scaffold, and special referee bouts.

Fans will also recognize the men behind the commentary--Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and Captain Lou Albano will be on hand to provide in-depth match analysis and career guidance. Legends of Wrestling will feature a TV-broadcast-style presentation, rife with shifting camera angles and cutscenes. In addition, you'll be able to experiment with create-a-wrestler and create-a-stable modes. Currently in development, Legends of Wrestling will be released later this year for both the PlayStation 2 and the GameCube.
