IMPACT Wrestling has reportedly asked its wrestlers to pull out of an upcoming project that several of its roster members were already signed up for.
Virtual Basement and their upcoming professional wrestling game, which is set to be released on next-gen consoles, have signed on a slew of names outside of WWE for what is shaping up to be a very ambitious project.
Some of the names already signed on include Kongo Kong, Ken Shamrock, Jonathan Gresham, and even Cryme Tyme, JTG and the late Shad Gaspard. Also on this list included several names signed on with IMPACT Wrestling, including Su Yung and Kylie Rae.
Courtesy of a video from wrestling video game influencer, Smacktalks, talent signed with IMPACT Wrestling will no longer be allowed to feature in the game as IMPACT Wrestling has asked its wrestlers to not sign on with the project and the ones that have already signed on, they have asked them to withdraw, which they did.
Ken Shamrock is an exception to this rule, as Virtual Basement has confirmed that he will stay on as an active roster member in the game.
Fightful has reached out to IMPACT Wrestling for comment on this matter and will update this story once more information is available.
Virtual Basement also shared some information about the upcoming video game with Sean Ross Sapp. You can see Fightful’s exclusive video and learn more about the upcoming game at this link.
