Blue Mammoth Games and Ubisoft are continuing with Brawlhalla promotions via crossovers. This time, it's WWE and the game will feature some of the biggest names in the wrestling entertainment world, such as The Rock and John Cena.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has had his share of goofy appearances, including the infamous Scorpion King CGI scene in The Mummy Returns, but the appearance in Brawlhalla should be right up his alley.

Considering the developers tend to give all their characters smug smirks and quirky eyebrow movements, The Rock couldn't find a better place to get digitized.

He is not the only one joining the fray though. John Cena's time in Brawlhalla is now and he will jump in for a throwdown. It remains to be seen how the developers will balance this skin out since no one can see him, right?

Becky Lynch and Xavier Woods are going to round up the remaining high-profile WWE appearances in Brawlhalla. Since they are all a part of a crossover, they are just skins, not actual new Legends.

Blue Mammoth Games didn't specifically state which Legends will have these skins though but the additions should be rolling out shortly, on the day of writing this article, 8 August 2019.

The skins are not the only additions though. Players will be able to enjoy a new game mode named Brawldown which will unfold in what looks like a typical ring used for WWE matches.

Players will be able to use the usual wrestling gimmicks in Brawldown, such as beating the opponents up with chairs and tables. Sadly, the trailer didn't showcase any elbow drops, leading us to believe new moves exclusive to the mode may not be available.

Update: Ubisoft clarified that The Rock is a skin for Sentinel, John Cena for Hattori, Becky Lynch for Gnash and Xavier Woods for Bodvar.

WWE is just the latest in a long line of crossovers for Brawlhalla and players were already treated to the likes of Adventure Time and Hellboy characters in the past. Now we can pit Hellboy, Rayman, Jake the Dog and Rayman against each other.
