Macho Madness To Be Unleashed

GLEN COVE, NY, March 03, 2004 – The “madness” that captivated the world of professional wrestling will once again rule the squared circle, as Acclaim Entertainment, Inc.

Currently under development with Acclaim Studios Austin, SHOWDOWN™: Legends of Wrestling™ features signature entrances and taunts for each of its 70+ Legends and an array of bone-breaking matches, including Table, First Blood, Iron Man, Hardcore, Ladder, Cage and Battle Royal. “Every sport has a handful of legendary athletes who possess an extraordinary ability to connect with the fans,” said Brian Shields, Brand Manager for Acclaim. “Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage is one of those athletes and we’re thrilled to announce his involvement in SHOWDOWN™: Legends of Wrestling™. Wrestling fans of all ages have been waiting to see this legend back inside the ring and heat things up the way that only the Macho Man can.” “OH YEAH! The Madness is back! The thought of returning to the ring with Acclaim for SHOWDOWN: Legends of Wrestling gives the Macho Man goose bumps,” said Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage. “Don’t be mistaken; I’m not here to make friends. I’m here to drop the big elbow on anyone who gets in my way. I’ve been on one side my whole career and that’s mine. I’ve made it clear who I’m gunnin’ for - the only question is, ‘will he accept my challenge?’ Find out this June, as the most dangerous man in the history of professional wrestling returns.
