Here’s The Untold Story Behind An Unreleased WWE Video Game

Do you remember playing WWE Legends of WrestleMania and WWE All Stars and going “hey, I wish there was these two games were part of a trilogy and that the third game was kind of like what would happen if you mixed of Super Smash Bros. and professional wrestling”?

Ok, so that probably didn’t happen. But according to this really interesting story released by WWE on Friday, there was an idea for a game called WWE Brawl (you may remember seeing the trailer before the game got canceled). It sounds like an interesting idea, as WWE superstars and divas fought each other in various settings outside of a wrestling ring like subway platforms.

WWE teamed up with THQ on the game, which was supposed to be released in 2012. It was set in the fictional Brawl City, here is a general synopsis for the game:

Loosely, the in-game story took on a Street Fighter-like plot, revolving around versions of John Cena, Kelly Kelly, Triple H and others as they fought their way through a grand conspiracy perpetrated by a fictionalized big boss version of Mr. McMahon, who was possibly working with a villainous version of WWE Hall of Famer Edge.
