Sorry everyone, but I love professional wrestling. Ever since Hulk Hogan slammed Andre the Giant to a thunderous ovation at the sweat-filled culmination of Wrestlemania III, I’ve been hooked. Which is why I was particularly excited to learn that a selection of WWE Superstars have chosen the soundtrack for the latest edition of 2K Sports’ long running wrestling franchise.
According to the press release, all of these tracks are listened to by the Superstars when ”preparing for a match, on the road, in the gym or relaxing at home.”
Wrestling fans the world over will now be marking out as they imagine listening to a song at the same time that their favourite wrestler is listening to it. Yes, that includes me.
