WWE Brawl was, at one point in time, the planned name for a multiplayer fighting game being developed by THQ. The premise of the game would see popular WWE Superstars of the time such as John Cena, Rey Mysterio, Triple H, and more having more of a superpower=enhanced personality in a game that would involve multiplayer action like Super Smash Brothers and breakable environments such as Mortal Kombat.

The embedded video above from Smacktalks covers most of what is known about the WWE Brawl video game which was canceled around the time that THQ initially went out of business in 2013. THQ is now back as part of a merger. The company is now known as THQNordic.

The next WWE video game release is set to be WWE 2K22. It will be released in March of next year. Learn more here.
