Legendary WWE World Heavyweight Champion Rey Mysterio will be featured in the upcoming PlayStation 4 wrestling game â€œ5 Star Wrestling: ReGenesis,â€ Scotland-based developer Serious Parody announced today via a press release obtained by Review Fix.
â€œWe here at Serious Parody have huge plans for â€˜5 Star Wrestling,â€™ Serious Parody Founder and CEO Dan Hinkles wrote in the release, â€œand|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, itâ€™s a dream come true to work with one of the very best wrestlers in history.
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.

â€œAJ Styles is arguably the greatest wrestler on the planet today. â€¦ To have him go one-Âon-Âone with Rey Mysterio… there honestly isnâ€™t a bigger match that a wrestling promoter other than Vince McMahon himself could make right now. Itâ€™s never been possible before and who knows if it will ever happen again and Iâ€™m so excited to be able to give wrestling fans an opportunity to see this match,â€ Hinkles said.
