Novato, CA – WWE video game developer 2K Sports have announced the latest tag team to be added to the 2K17 roster will be NWA legends, The Mulkey Brothers.

Famous for their incredible losing streak, Bill and Randy Mulkey were a staple of the NWA in the 80’s. The inclusion of the Mulkeys in a modern video game is seen as a push by the WWE to regain older fans that they have lost in recent years.

“Kids will like whatever we tell them to like, but it’s the parents and old guys that control the purse-strings,” said WWE CEO Vince McMahon. “Nostalgia is all the rage right now and what better way to get fans to keep ponying up money than by adding old wrestlers to a video game they already purchased.”

Fan response for the new addition has been positive so far.

“I’m so happy, you have no idea,” said lifetime wrestling fan Bob Kozlowski. “I used to watch these guys all the time when I was a kid. I loved the way they would always take a beating. Not like today’s wrestlers. I can’t wait to play as the Mulkeys with my son.”

“What the hell is a Mulkey?” asked Bob’s 10 year old son Eddie. “Look at their stats: 24 Strength, a 7 for skills. Personality trait: Spastic. Oh my god, their Charisma is -1. How is that possible?! The crowd reaction is pretty good, though.”

“Mulkey Mania is running wild!” said Bob as his team lost for the 18th time in a row. “Just you wait. They’re going to win one of these days and it’s going to be huge. I can feel it. The Shining Stars won’t know what hit ’em.”

Other teams set to be used in future DLCs include The Batten Twins, The Moondogs, Sam Houston and Nelson Royal, and The Jumping Bomb Angels.

    I so wish this would be true. The joy of a Talent Enhancement Roster with Iron Mike Sharpe, George South, The State Patrol, S.D. Jones, Jose Luis Rivera, The Italian Stallion, etc. would be epic. A Survivor Series Elimination Tag Match of jobbers, the main event of Squash-a-Mania.

      Throw Barry Horowitz, The Conquistadors, Mr. X (Danny Davis), The Brooklyn Brawler, Barry O (at least Luigi gets acknowledged as Mario’s brother), Randy Hogan & The Gambler into that mix.

    You actually had me excited there for a moment….

    Just showed my kids the AMAZING Mulkey’s vs Gladiators match, with post match David Crockett interview where the Gladiators DEMANDED a rematch. They stared at me like I was crazy but it was good times for me. 🙂

    What no LowDown or Techno Team 2000???

  4. The Doctor of Style says:

    One of the 2K games featured Virgil as DLC.

    It was free, too, which I guess says something.

  5. EWA Beach Boy says:

    No Well Done??? smh!!! :^D

  6. Gabe Benson says:

    I still remember legit marking out when they won a match on the Mothership vs The Gladiators. Mulkey Mania was running wild that night my friends.

  7. Matt S. says:

    The Batten Twins too? Oh boy! Maybe next year, we’ll get Johnny Wilhoit so we can team him and Mark/Brad Batten to make the New Generation! Let’s hear it for the boy!
