Rocket League has constantly updated its game with new cars, maps, emotes, abilities, game modes and aesthetics (Skins, Flags, Hats) since its PC release in 2015, and it’s consoling debut in 2016. So it comes as no surprise when Psyonix announced they’d be teaming up with WWE to sponsor its upcoming pay per view Backlash.
While Rocket League is set to sponsor the upcoming WWE event on May 21, 2017, the studio stated that this is just the beginning of their partnership with the entertainment behemoth. It makes complete sense given not only the immense amount of unique personalities that have been in the WWE/F over the years but some of the cars they’ve driven.

A few examples to think of are Eddie Guerrero’s Lo Rider, DX’s Tank, Kurt Angle’s Milk Truck and JBL’s Limousine. Stone Cold Steve Austin alone has the Beer Truck, The Zamboni and of course the car that Rikishi ran him over with (I mean he did if for The Rock though so it’s cool).
Alongside that are all the ridiculous skins and hats (or hair) that can be added. Imagine adding a Hulk Hogan Mullet, color pallet and maybe even a mustache to your ride, or a Macho Man Randy Savage hat topper.
This isn’t the company’s first collaboration with an entertainment conglomerate, as they recently formed a partnership with Universal Pictures to add the Fate of the Furious DLC to the game. With this partnership, it doesn’t look like Rocket League is going anywhere anytime soon, as it’s seen a steady player count despite how long it’s been out.
Rocket League is available now for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One, with the WWE updates coming soon and for the foreseeable future. For more information, be sure to check back to the site for more Rocket League Updates, as well as all of your Nerdy News!
