WWE grapplers ready for digital dust-up

Shelton Benjamin to defend his THQ title against 15 WWE Superstars on WrestleMania weekend.


WWE Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin is going to WrestleMania April 2 in Chicago, Illinois, but he's only defending one title that weekend: that of THQ Superstar Challenge Champion. On March 30 in Chicago's House of Blues, Benjamin and 15 other wrestlers (including John Cena, Rob Van Dam, and Paul London) will compete to see which real-life grappler has the goods in the virtual squared-circle of WWE SmackDown! vs Raw 2006 for the PlayStation 2. The bracket-style tournament will be followed by a live performance from Atlantic Records' Shinedown. Tickets to the event are $20 and available through TicketMaster.
