Although WWE’s flagship event, Wrestlemania 33, is over, fans can watch superstars go at it – at least in video game form.
During the Wrestlemania festivities, UpUpDownDown held a special Wrestlemania stream where superstars from Raw and Smackdown Live competed on separate teams – The Mad Hatters vs. The Wizards. UpUpDownDown’s Youtube channel released the streams in separate videos.
In the first part of the livestream, Raw’s Seth Rollins, defending Madden champion, calls out Smackdown Live’s A.J. Styles. The two are destined to clash in the Madden finals. Although the match doesn’t happen here, Austin Creed – also known as WWE’s Xavier Woods – confirmed that Rollins vs. Styles will confirm later this month.
In this first match Jimmy Uso a.k.a. Uce of The Mad Hatters takes on Austin Creed of The Wizards in Justice League Task Force. Both Use and Creed are masters at fighting games, but Task Force is something else.
With The Wizards up 1-0, Rusev of The Mad Hatters tries to even the score up against Jey Uso in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Fighting Edition! Be careful folks, if you blink, you might miss it. If you’re a fan of Power Rangers, you’ll have fun debating on who will win between the Thunder Megazord and the Shogun Megazord.
The Mad Hatters and The Wizards are tied 1-1. In this video Sasha Banks takes on Big E in Shaq Fu. I remember buying this game as a kid and loving it – for probably the first few days I played it.
Shaq was originally scheduled to face the Big Show at Wrestlmania 33, however the match is scrapped, so it’s kind of cool to see him in video game form.
Titus O’Neil and Kofi Kingston face off in a battle of Raw Superstars! Can Mr. 24/7 a.k.a. Mr. Gotcho bring The Wizards another W? Clay Fighter was another guilty pleasure of mine as a kid.
And we have the grand finale. The Miz, representing the Mad Hatters takes on Seth Rollins of the Wizards. The Wizards are up by one, but if Miz wins the first game, they have to go into sudden death.
The first game between The Miz and Seth Rollins is King of the Monsters. Miz claims he’s great at King of the Monsters, but Rollins is going to put him to the test.
As punishment for losing, Sasha, Titus, Jimmy Uso, Rusev and Miz must play the Shock Game. That’s it for the UpUpDownDown Wrestlemania livestream.
