AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CENA!
WWE, a company that has absolutely no need to point eyes in other directions right now, has revealed that it is teaming up with two major video game brands for a pair of brand new in-game promotions, that will see its ring-rocking superstars feature in Epic Games’ Fortnite, Psyonix’ Rocket League, and Mediatonic’s Fall Guys.
Battle royale juggernaut Fortnite will soon be welcoming the presence of one of the industry’s biggest and most successful all-time stars: The Doctor of Thuganomics, John Cena. Cena will be dropping onto the landing zone on all platforms July 29, kitted out with his trademark jorts, inflatable finger melee tool, WWE title “Back Bling,” and iconic “You Can’t C Me” taunt. Unfortunately, it does not appear that playing as Cena will afford you the ability to hit your opponents with the Attitude Adjustment.
I expect Cena to be banned from online play almost immediately given his natural camouflage abilities.
For those of you who prefer your battle arts of the vehicular persuasion, then Rocket League is also currently feeling the pro-wrestling vibe. From July 28, players can purchase brand-new octane decals for their road rippers of choice. The two new designs are styled after the color schemes and shirt logos of both John Cena and the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.
The WWE SummerSlam Octane Decal Bundle will retail for 500 credits.
Finally, over in the cutesy bean-bashing world of Fall Guys, three new costumes are headed to the in-game store. These outfits are stylized after three top WWE stars: The video game-lovin’ Xavier Woods, legendary deadman The Undertaker, and yer boy Moyse’s favorite, Asuka. These three skins will be available to purchase within Fall Guys during this week’s “Blundermania” promotion, which will take place between July 28 and August 1.
