For a number of months now, the wildly popular vehicular soccer game Rocket League has been a proud sponsor of World Wrestling Entertainment. When developer Psyonix announced this partnership, they mentioned that WWE/professional wrestling-themed items would also be coming to Rocket League.

The first batch of these in-game items are being released this week to coincide with this year’s WrestleMania, the thirty-fourth edition of WWE’s flagship annual event, which will take place on Sunday, April 8.

In total, eleven WWE items are being added to the game to celebrate ‘Mania. However, it seems that those who actually watch tune into the show are going to get first dibs. A special code will be revealed during the event that will allow players to unlock two random items from the batch of five banners, five flags, and a new set of wheels.

Based on a promotional image that has been released (shown above), it appears that the new wheels are based on the standard side plates of the current version of the WWE Championship title. (They don’t like to use the word ‘belt’ anymore.)

In addition, Psyonix has stated that more WWE items for Rocket League, as well as more special codes, will be released to coincide with other major WWE shows as the year progresses. (Given the fact that SummerSlam is WWE’s second biggest event of the year, one would assume that a similar batch of these DLC items can be expected around late August.)

Rocket League is currently available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

WrestleMania 34 will be available live on the WWE Network and Pay-per-view on April 8th at 7 pm EST/4 pm PST.
