Cool Beans Takes Wrestling To The Extreme - Facts & Screens

by Rainier on Dec. 12, 2001 @ 2:13 p.m. PST

From the fevered imaginations of Cool Beans Productions and the UK’s finest comic creators comes WRESTLING WARS, a no-holds-barred futuristic spin on the ever-popular “sports entertainment” genre.

Wrestling Wars is set on a twisted, manic version of our own near-future earth. It focuses on the ultimate combat sport, bringing together a dizzying variety of creatures, cyborgs and freaks to fight in bouts that makes the WWF look like a teddy bears picnic! With a line up that includes seriously psychotic characters like Kid Raptor, 2-Ton, X-Cavator, Miss Plastic Elastic and the mysterious Black Atom, Wrestling Wars is poised to be the logical progression for the world’s grapple-obsessed youth.

The Wrestling Wars series will debut exclusively on as a high-octane computer animated adventure featuring pacy, hip scripting by Ian Edginton (Planet of the Apes, X-Force, Terminator, Aliens Vs Predator, The Establishment) and character designs from Simon Bisley (Lobo, Batman/Judge Dredd, DeathDealer). Talks are underway with a top secret wrestling federation to bring live action Wrestling Wars to the UK, and legendary artist Simon Bisley is so excited by the concept that he now plans to enter the ring himself – just as soon as he can think of a cool wrestling name!

Wrestling Wars is also in development as a CGI animated TV show, and partners are being sought to develop the series for the videogame market. “The crossover potential for this franchise is huge” said Dan Whitehead, Marketing Manager at Cool Beans Productions, “The combination of brutal monster wrestling, cutting edge computer animation and the incredible visual style, presents so many possibilities. Action figures, games, TV shows – the sky’s the limit!”

Exclusive preview artwork and animation is available on request from Cool Beans Productions.
