With WrestleMania XXX looming large next April, the next installment in the WWE video game franchise, and the first under the 2K banner, WWE 2K14, will feature a game mode entitled "30 Years of WrestleMania."
So what does that mean? WWE.com explains:
Inspired by the landmark WrestleMania XXX, which will emanate from New Orleans on Sunday, April 6, 2014, "30 Years of WrestleMania" will be a nostalgic jodurney through three decades of WWE history. Utilizing the greatest video game roster ever assembled, "30 Years" will allow players the chance to relive and experience 45 classic WrestleMania matches, including Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant at WrestleMania III, Hogan vs. The Rock at WrestleMania X8 and The Rock vs. John Cena at WrestleMania XXVIII.
The inclusion of Hulk Hogan in the game is a particularly exciting announcement, and one the WWE Universe has eagerly anticipated.
I'm not sure the WWE Universe was eagerly anticipating the inclusion of Hogan in a new video game, although it's obviously big news that a deal was struck despite the fact that he's still currently employed by TNA, the chief pro wrestling competitor to WWE.
It was also announced today that the official roster reveal will occur this coming Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET in Los Angeles as part of the SummerSlam weekend. That will be hosted by Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, and Damien Sandow.
