– In a recent report, there was a list of 35 WWE legends slated to appear in the upcoming “Legends of Wrestlemania” video game. According to the list, Randy Savage and Mick Foley are being left off the game. Jeff Wilen of the JAWBreaker contacted THQ about it and rep Jaime Jensen e-mailed him back. Jensen said all rumored names for the game are considered speculation/Internet rumor. “Our announced roster at this point is as follows: Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock (and) Jimmy Hart. All other talent names floating around at this juncture are considered speculation/Internet rumor,” Jensen said. “We expect more names to be announced over the coming months. The total talent list will be around 40 Legends and managers.”

For what it’s worth, those names came from a video game website that had already received an advanced copy of the game and provided a review.
