“ReGenesis,” slated to arrive early next year, aims to focus on “fun yet strategic gameplay.”

“We here at Serious Parody have huge plans for ‘5 Star Wrestling,’ Serious Parody Founder and CEO Dan Hinkles wrote in the release, “and|signing the absolute greatest high flyer of all time, Rey Mysterio, is not only an incredible step in the right direction for our company but on a personal level, as a lifelong wrestling fan, it’s a dream come true to work with one of the very best wrestlers in history.
“Rey Mysterio could sign with the WWE at anytime but he has chosen to work with us instead; it’s truly surreal and hopefully a sign of big things to come.”

As part of a new promotion, the development studio also announced the 5 Star Wrestling: ReGenesis Tour, beginning Jan. 13, 2016, at the Newcastle Metro Arena.The tour will continue through Jan. 14 and 15 at the Sheffield Arena and Liverpool Echo Arena, respectively.

On the 14th, for the first time ever, Rey Mysterio himself will go up against another wrestling god: AJ Styles — a former IWGP and TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

“AJ Styles is arguably the greatest wrestler on the planet today. … To have him go one-­on-­one with Rey Mysterio… there honestly isn’t a bigger match that a wrestling promoter other than Vince McMahon himself could make right now. It’s never been possible before and who knows if it will ever happen again and I’m so excited to be able to give wrestling fans an opportunity to see this match,” Hinkles said.

The other two matches have yet to be announced.
