A non-pinball friend at CES stumbled upon the new game without knowing it. Wrestlemania is coming! I'm not much of a wrestling fan, but I bet there's more wrestling fans in the country than Walking Dead fans. Seems like a good idea.

No more information, unfortunately, but I'm sure we'll have all we want tomorrow!

That's an interesting mechanism at the back of the pf. Reminds me of Gottlieb's Knockout.

Fail! Yay no new game needed!

#5 4 years ago

Yeah, probably shouldn't have left that backglass out in the open. Doh!

Looks like I can skip a new release this round

More pics please

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Wheres Jaws?

#10 4 years ago

Yep. I just saved a boatload of cash myself. I'm betting the big mech in the back is a bash toy.

Several of the rumors were making me think very hard on a NIB - looks like I skip it as well. I would liked the theme when I was 14.

#12 4 years ago

We'll have to wait on pics...that was the only one sent, and the room is now closed.

I bet it's a wrestling ring

#16 4 years ago

That is too bad. i hope they read these threads to get a better idea on what people want. I know it is too early, but, I want a LE Star Wars. Hopefully they will do one right before the movie is released later this year.

#17 4 years ago

Is that a drop target bank in the middle?

#18 4 years ago

turd in the punchbowl

#19 4 years ago

I'm hoping this an elaborate photoshop ploy to throw the pinside community off track. I want a TronVE or LOTRVE please.

It's funny that this is at CES, a non-pinball crowd. Which reaction do you think is more prevalent:

"Wow! I didn't know pinball was still a thing?"

or

"Wow! I didn't know Wrestlemania was still a thing?"

#21 4 years ago

Can any wrestling fans on here kindly explain why Stern would release this title now?

#22 4 years ago

Well that explains the codename "Dudes" I was told for the next title I was told when I toured. I thought maybe it was KISS since it's 4 guys. Either way I save 8k.

#23 4 years ago

I'm not even a Star Wars fan and I would have bought that over this.

#24 4 years ago

This is great news... The theme does nothing for me, save my money and continue to wait patiently for mmr le

#25 4 years ago

Cant believe this. Wrestle acting for kids.

Good luck with selling outside the usa. So many awesome themes all over the forum, and they come up with this?

#26 4 years ago

Well...following Stern's schedule, this leaves one more new title this year. Plus Whoa Nellie, plus the rumored LOTR VE, plus MMR production. I don't see how they could possibly push out more than that in one year. I'm getting bummed because now Game of Thrones isn't looking too good...let's hope that's the one Steve Richie has been working on for a while now.

Wrestlemania is coming in March.

It looks like bad Photoshop.....but then again it could just be a blurry picture.

We'll find out soon.

You have to wait a little longer for new Star Wars.

This!

#32 4 years ago

Press Release: Code will not be finished at launch and probably never will be.

#33 4 years ago

WOW, they dropped a deuce on this one!

Wrestling ring in the middle of the play field obviously by the shape of that mech.

#34 4 years ago

Not for me either, but I know a whole lot more people with the necessary disposable income who are Wrestling fans than are TWD or even pinball fans. Maybe this is an attempt by Stern to expand and attract new blood? Could be a good thing if they're willing to take chances.

#35 4 years ago

Loving the Stephanie and Vince McMahon art on the front of the cab, since you know, THEY are the stars of Wrestlemania...Oh boy...

#36 4 years ago

I'm not gonna judge it just by the theme. I hate NASCAR but loved the pin.

#37 4 years ago

NFW!! Can't Wait for the $3k HUOs!!

Can anyone identify the guys on the translite? I don't know any wrestlers newer than 1999

#38 4 years ago
Quoted from Hwawonyu:

Fail! Yay no new game needed!

Amen!

This is actually kind of a funny reaction from everyone. We're all just glad our money is safe for another pin.

#39 4 years ago

Good scoop - way to really break the story loose! Theme could be ok, can't wait to see topside.

#40 4 years ago
Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

That's what I was thinking too. I'm no fan of wrestling, but if the PF is filled with magnificent and exciting gadgets, plus has great play, then maybe it won't be a dud.

#41 4 years ago

Worse than Mustang, and I didn't think that was possible!

Whoever did the photoshop on this pic for wrestlemania , it's pretty good but it's fake imho. Guess we'll find out soon...

Looks like Brock Lesnar on the left

U can see it on cabinet too not photo shopped

Somewhere, Jersey Jack is laughing...

#46 4 years ago

A couple of pics popped up on twitter - you can see the promo banner and side art. It looks like the focus is on the current era. Anyone want to read anything into the playfield conspicuously blocking the display?

I thought so to, but Lesnar is leaving after Mania. Surely they wouldn't put him in there?

#48 4 years ago

no way that's fake.
100% real.

#49 4 years ago
Quoted from alveolus:

My guess would be the license was cheap and it is an affordable gamble. WWE is waning in popularity, the halcyon days of the Attitude era are long gone and they have competition again, something not seen since the Monday Night Wars with WCW. McMahon needs exposure and is willing to give it away on the cheap. WWE still has some pull with the 11-14 year old male audience but has lost most of its 'educated' adult audience.

Only a guess though...

#50 4 years ago

I heard wrestling was fake but I don't wanna believer it.

No China, no Roddy Piper or Capt. Lou Albano or Iron Sheik and I'm out.
