Miss your favorite WWE wrestlers’ Twitch streams? Perhaps we can interest you in the Superstar Gaming Series?

WWE hopes they can, as they’ve revealed the details of what looks to be their replacement for some of the third party engagement Vince McMahon banned a few months ago. The Superstar Gaming Series was first listed among other new Network programming announced at the beginning of December, but today they provided a synopsis along with the Tues., Dec. 29 premiere date.

It will feature a number of the company’s independent contractors - most of whom are already active on Xavier Woods’ WWE-sanctioned UpUpDownDown channels - gaming with famous streamers and other company-friendly celebrities such as rapper Wale. This will also mark Ronda Rousey’s return (of sorts) to the company.

Here’s the details on the two streams/shows coming our way next week:

WWE Superstar Gaming Series is set to launch on Tuesday, Dec. 29, at 8 p.m. ET on the Free Version of WWE Network and across WWE social platforms.

A star-studded crew will take part in the Among Us “Holiday Sus-Fest” and WWE 2K Battlegrounds “Holiday Throwdown.” Ronda Rousey, The Miz, Liv Morgan, Adam Cole, Tyler Breeze, Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke will represent WWE with celebrities FaZe Adapt, Nick Eh 30, Lele Pons, Wale joining the mix as well.

Greg Miller of “Kinda Funny Games” will host the all-new event along with special guest Xavier Woods.

Here is the full run-down for the action-packed debut on Dec. 29:

Best of UpUpDownDown 2020 Marathon – 3 p.m. ET (Streaming on WWE Social Platforms)
