One would be hard pressed to find a pop culture subject able to spur the liveliest of conversations as quickly as pro wrestling stars from the past. Soon a nostalgic discussion can turn into a verbal version of "can you top this," with fans reminiscing over characters like the Iron Sheik, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, recalling names and matches from years past that shaped the childhoods of millions of fans throughout the 1980's and '90's. Where were the biggest stories of pro wrestling shaped, the brightest stars made? WrestleMania.
Considering all that untapped wrestling nostalgia, along with an organization like the WWE that keeps tremendous records of everything that has ever been televised, THQ hopes to build on the success of their Smackdown vs. Raw franchise with the upcoming WWE Legends of WrestleMania, which looks to be a new game with old stars.
