This game looks fun in the trailer, but this is a 2K game, so it’s probably just going to be a crap vehicle for microtransactions.
WizKids makes this WWE-themed variant on Rock, Paper, Scissors.
From the designers of Rock, Paper, Wizard comes an all-new game of Striking, Showboating, and making hand signals! Players select their favorite Superstar and work to gain the most popularity and reach the briefcase at the top of a 3-D ladder while making sure their opponents don’t get there first.
Each round, players select shared techniques, or their Superstar’s signature technique, and simultaneously chant “Money!” “In The!” “Bank!” before revealing their technique, and their target. Comeback cards and the Underdog token mean that you’re never more than a few well-chosen techniques away from the lead!
Someone has put a lot of effort into an excellent Lego product idea–WWE Wrestling: The Golden Era.
Albert Hardie Jr. is a professional wrestler who wrestled under the name ACH before being signed to WWE’s NXT brand where he took the ring name Jordan Myles.
As part of its merchandising, WWE thought this would be the perfect t-shirt for an African American wrestler.
Myles was not too pleased. Even though the t-shirt was already pulled from sale, Myles spoke out about the t-shirt on Twitter.
WWE has a long history not just of racial insensitivity, but of actively exploiting racial insensitivity as part of its shows (back in 2017 it had one of its wrestlers mock the accent of Japanese wrestler Shinsuke Nakamura). So this is both shocking and yet not surprising at all.
