On the official Rocket League Twitter account, it was announced that Rocket League would be teaming up with the WWE. While the tweet only references the fact that Rocket League will be sponsoring the WWE Backlash pay-per-view event on May 21st, they did end with the fact that this is “just the beginning.”
Whether this means in-game WWE DLC content like a WWE-themed Arena or new cars centered around WWE stars remains to be seen.
What a play! We're teaming up with @WWE, and #WWEBacklash is just the beginning! #SDLive https://t.co/CUjZrCh673— Rocket League (@RocketLeague) May 3, 2017
However, it’s certainly an exciting prospect for fans of both Rocket League and the WWE. Rocket League and developer Psyonix are quite experienced in the realm of partnerships, as the game’s previous DLC tied in with the popular Fate and the Furious film. Specifically, the DLC introduced the Ice Charger (a Dodge Charger driven by Vin Diesel’s character in the film) into Rocket League.
The Ice Charger looks vastly different from any of the other cars available in Rocket League (which we love), and with the latest WWE partnership, we can't help but question what creative content Psyonix has up their sleeve now. Either way, we’ll simply have to wait until the WWE Backlash event airs on May 21st to learn more about Rocket League’s lucrative new partnership!
