In an exciting development for fans of both boxing and wrestling, the legendary Muhammad Ali, widely recognized as the Greatest of All Time (GOAT), has been added to the roster of the popular mobile game, WWE Champions.
This move marks a significant milestone in the gaming world, bringing together two distinct yet interconnected realms of combat sports.
Ali’s Connection to WWE
Ali’s association with WWE isn’t new. He served as a special guest referee in the inaugural WrestleMania, overseeing a match that featured Hulk Hogan & Mr. T against “Rowdy” Roddy Piper & “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff.
This historical connection between Ali and WWE adds a layer of authenticity to his inclusion in the game.
Remembering the Boxing Icon
Muhammad Ali, who passed away in 2016 at the age of 74, continues to be celebrated and remembered for his extraordinary boxing career.
His addition to WWE Champions is a fitting tribute to his enduring legacy. Ali’s presence in the game will undoubtedly inspire players and fans alike, reminding them of his remarkable talent and charisma.
Unlocking the Legend
Ali’s character in WWE Champions isn’t just a static addition. Players will have the opportunity to unlock Ali-related content through the Sting Like a Bee contest, which began on July 31st.
The contest offers players a chance to earn Ali’s poster in various rarities, adding an element of excitement and competition to the game.
Muhammad Ali’s Moves in the WWE Ring
The game developers have gone to great lengths to ensure that Ali’s character in WWE Champions reflects his unique boxing style.
Players can look forward to using signature moves such as “Float Like a Butterfly,” “Sting Like a Bee,” “Twenty One Dodges,” “Ali Shuffle,” and “Dancing Jab.” These moves not only add to the gameplay experience but also pay homage to Ali’s iconic boxing style.
The Sting Like a Bee Solo Contest
The Sting Like a Bee Solo Contest is the key to unlocking Muhammad Ali in WWE Champions. The contest, which runs from July 31st through August 4th, allows players to earn the “Sting Like a Bee” Medallion currency.
