WWE 2K20 and some of the brand’s most iconic wrestlers are coming together to entertain you during your coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantine. The WWE Dream Match Mania event will simulate matches between some of the biggest wrestlers in history, and it will have commentary from real WWE superstars to back it up.
Airing April 2 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on WWE’s platforms as well as YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, and Facebook, WWE Dream Match Mania will consist of six simulated matches.
- Roman Reigns vs. The Rock with commentary from Jimmy and Jey Uso
- Sasha Banks vs. Trish Stratus with commentary from Sasha Banks and Bayley
- John Cena vs. Hulk Hogan with commentary from R-Truth and Drake Maverick
- Seth Rollins vs. Rick Flair with commentary from Johnny Gargano and Adam Cole
- Charlotte Flair vs. Beth Phoenix with commentary from both wrestlers
- Goldberg vs. Big E with commentary from Big E and Kofi Kingston
Alongside WWE Network and its own platforms, you’ll be able to watch the event on UpUpDownDown’s social media platforms. UpUpDownDown is the gaming channel run by Xavier Woods, otherwise known as WWE superstar Xavier Woods.
Because the simulated wrestling matches are being carried out in WWE 2K20, there is potential for hilarity. When the game launched last October, it was hilariously broken. In GameSpot’s WWE 2K20 review, Richard Wakeling gave the game a 2/10 score and lamented its bugs and crashing issues. It was developed by Visual Concepts rather than longtime partner Yuke’s, which had handled the franchise since it was still licensed to THQ.
Wrestlemania 36 will be taking a different approach because of the coronavirus pandemic, split over two nights and without Roman Reigns because he is immunocompromised. Come back to GameSpot on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5 to join the Wrestle Buddies, Chris E. Hayner and Mat Elfring, for full coverage of this unique Wrestlemania event.
