Konnan Completes the Mexican Legends Prime Lineup for Q1 2020!

Rounding out the lineup for Legends Prime in Q1 is Mexican Legend Konnan.  Before he entertained US audiences on Monday Night TV, the Cuban born Konnan started his career in Mexico.  Like many luchadors he wrestled under a mask and wore bright colors, which is something many of his later fans never witnessed.  This Legends playing card represents that time in his career before losing his mask in 1991.  How will this version of Konnan fare against the top masked luchadors of today?

Q1 2020 for Legends Prime features Konnan, Vampiro and Juventud Guerrera.  To preorder any Promoter Prime product CLICK HERE.  Preorders are also now available for Legends Ladies Expansion II, Future Shock: Centra Wrestling Federation 2116 and Best of Mexico Indies set!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.  Preorders for all game editions will begin mailing by March 31st!

Toni Rose has her eyes set on the Women’s Tag Team titles!

Joining the Legends Ladies II lineup is another trainee of The Fabulous Moolah, and another Hall of Fame wrestler to boot. Hailing from the great state of Indiana, Rose began her career in the 1960’s. She rose through the ranks quickly, and soon was in a tag team with Moolah.  The two were very successful, and won the most prestigious version of the Women’s World Tag-Team Championship on two occasions. Rose toured the globe and competed against fellow Legends rookies Susan Green and Joyce Grable, and both times the tag titles were involved. Rose was described both as the consummate heel, and “attractive and mean as a snake”. Given her teacher, this makes sense.  Will Rose and Moolah have the same success in your promotion?

Toni Rose joins Fabulous Moolah, Joyce Grable, Candi Divine, Ida Mae Martinez, Susan Green and Beverly Shade in the Legends Ladies II 8-pack.  Preorders are now available for Legends Ladies Expansion II, Future Shock: Centra Wrestling Federation 2116 and Best of Mexico Indies set!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.  Preorders for all game editions will begin mailing by March 31st!

The Newest Legends Ladies Expansion Has Just Become Fabulous!

Perhaps the greatest women’s wrestler of all time has joined the Legends roster!  To many historians, The Fabulous Moolah is synonymous with women’s professional wrestling, as she was the most prominent name in the sport for decades.  Starting in the 1940’s as Buddy Roger’s valet she went on to win the most prestigious version of the Women’s World Title relatively quickly, and defended against all of the women’s headliners of the day.  She continued to be a top name in women’s wrestling until the 1980’s.  There are plenty of women in Legends who will be looking to take down Moolah.  Who will you book her against first?
