Rumor: Character List for Legends of Wrestlemania Revealed

A NeoGAFfer working from lists of previously confirmed characters, plus images he says will be released by IGN and WWE, has come up with at least 42 playable characters in Legends of Wrestlemania.

If you grew up in the golden age of pro wrestling - what I consider it to be anyway - there are more than enough names to take you back. It's nearly a comprehensive accounting of the A-listers in the then-WWF from about 1985 to 1989, plus others.

The full list in alphabetical order:

• Andre the Giant
• Arn Anderson
• Bam Bam Bigelow
• Big Boss Man
• Big John Studd
• Bobby Heenan
• Bret Hart
• British Bulldog
• Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake
• Dusty Rhodes
• Greg "The Hammer" Valentine
• "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan
• Honky Tonk Man
• Hulk Hogan
• Hunter Hearst Helmsley
• Jake "The Snake" Roberts
• Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart
• Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka
• Jimmy Hart
• Junkyard Dog
• Kamala
• King Kong Bundy
• Koko B• Ware
• Michael Hayes
• "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase
• Mr• Fuji
• Mr• Perfect
• Nikolai Volkoff
• Paul Bearer
• "Ravishing" Rick Rude
• Ric Flair
• Road Warrior Animal
• Road Warrior Hawk
• "Rowdy" Roddy Piper
• Sgt• Slaughter
• Shawn Michaels
• "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
• The Iron Sheik
• The Rock
• Ultimate Warrior
• Undertaker
• Yokozuna

A little disappointed the Killer Bees aren't here, but they were never tag-team champs, and didn't have a broad appeal. It's awesome they've got managers in there, too. Wonder if beating Greg "The Hammer" Valentine with Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake will trigger a head-shaving minigame.
