WrestleMania 27 DVD Trailer, More on Wrestling Manager Video Game

April 28, 2011 by Daniel Bee

With thanks to Silvervision, here’s the trailer for the release of WWE WrestleMania 27 on DVD and Blu-ray.

WrestleMania 27 will be released to North America on May 10th. It will follow to UK/Europe in June. Pre-order your copy now.


Yesterday we posted an exclusive interview with “Serious Parody”, revealing plans of a new video game entitled Wrestling Manager to be released this summer. We can now give out some details regarding the project.

Serious Parody are working on 2 wrestling games, one which should be released in the summer on the iPhone/iPod via the App Store (Wrestling Manager) and a full blown wrestling simulator that should be appearing in late 2012 on at least one major console. While Wrestling Manager has been designed for the iPhone, plans are to spread it out on other mobile platforms over time. With the first game they are aiming to deliver a great wrestling game for mobiles which is either hard to come by or non-existant at the moment.

Regarding licensees for the game like WWE, TNA and ROH, a deal hasn’t been possible as a currently unproven company. SP remain in talks with some major promotions however, for the future. They’ve met with the owners of one of the major companies who have said the artwork in the planned games is fantastic so one might come aboard for a second game. They want to adopt the Pro Evolution/Winning Eleven approach of making a really good game, superseding the need for licenses in the beginning.

Wrestling Manager is like a mash up of Game Dev Story, FIFA’s Ultimate Team and GM Mode from the old Smackdown games. You start out as a small indy promotion putting on shows in tiny arena’s to earn money which you can then spend on better talent, new match types, story-lines, contracts and staff. As your promotion grows, the amount of money you earn will grow and eventually you’ll develop enough of a following to release DVD’s, sign TV and PPV Deals.

Both myself and Shaun Blackford of WWEDVDNews.com are going to be featured in the game and you could be too! If you would like to be, send a picture of yourself and a crazy wrestling name to dan@serious-parody.com – 3 lucky winners will make it into the game!

    Ugh, this game is a serious waste of 10 dollars. Save your money unless you really really like buggy games that crash!

  2. WWE do seem to want to block anything that they haven’t put up on youtube, you would think for a trailer they wouldn’t do it..

  3. RazorwireReviews says:

    Yeah lol, basically EWR

  4. Alan says:

  8. Steve says:

    So basically Promotion Wars/Extreme Warfare Revenge in 2011/2012.

  9. Daniel Bee says:

    Probaby anything going up on YouTube at the moment relating to “WrestleMania 27” is automatically flagged. Changed the video now, work for you?

  10. Anonymous says:

    Why block an ad for people to buy your products!?

  11. Would not mind being in the Game Myself!

  12. MickEiA says:

    Yeah video has been blocked

  13. brian says:

    it says something about wwe blocking it due to copyrights

  14. Cheers guys, we really appreciate the help. Can I just add that we aren’t ruling out licenses altogether for the first game, it’s just no deal has been reached as of yet. iPhone games are prone to updates and should we secure the licenses that we are after, we will patch them in asap, rather than just waiting for a second game.

    What’s the error?

  16. brian says:

    video doesnt work
