Psyonix has announced a partnership with World Wrestling Entertainment. The deal will include both in-game crossovers as well as real life sponsorships. 

"Throughout 2018, you can expect to see Rocket League all over the WWE universe," says Psyonix on the game's official site. "From regular appearances on UpUpDownDown, WWE’s YouTube gaming channel with Austin Creed a.k.a. WWE Superstar Xavier Woods to sponsorships at live WWE events - you may have even seen us on Elimination Chamber just last night".

At the moment, we still don't know how exactly WWE will be featured in the game, but it's not going to be too long of a wait before we find out. As a part of this partnership, Psyonix will be adding WWE items to the Rocket League, so we can expect customization options like wrestling-themed decals, flags, and possibly cars.

On the wrestling side of things, fans will get to see more Rocket League-related sponsorships and content. The studio stated that the game will frequently be played on the WWE's gaming channel on YouTube, and that there'll be a Rocket League booth at WrestleMania 34 in April.

Psyonix is "very excited to be a partner of WrestleMania 34, where we’ll have Rocket League playable for attendees at one of the biggest sports and entertainment events in the world in New Orleans the weekend of 08 April 2018."
