As the world celebrates May the 4th as Star Wars Day, the WWE has decided to get in on the festivities with its own tribute to the iconic space opera franchise set long ago in that galaxy far, far away.
The WWE has unveiled a tribute slideshow of its various Superstars over the years, with lightsabers photoshopped on everyone from Hulk Hogan and The Rock to Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss in their most triumphant moments in the ring. As the video comes to a close, The Rock is seen hoisting his own lightsaber, ready to take on any and all challengers.
The WWE has continued its operations from the Performance Center in Orlando after being recognized by the Florida state government as “an essential business” during the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, a decision met with a fair amount of controversy.
And while viewers shouldn’t anticipate their favorite Superstars wielding lightsabers in the ring anytime soon, the photoshopped sizzle reel provides an entertaining look at the two fan-favorite brands coming together to bring the Force to audiences around the world.
