Following widespread criticism about WWE 2K15, the latest console offering, Immortals, a free-to-play mobile video-game, was unleashed upon the world this week. The move follows some super weird promotional material involving Triple H, in particular, looking a bit like he did during last year’s much-discussed Wrestlemania entrance.

But, if you thought that shit was weird, then the character designs that have since been revealed will blow your fucking mind.

NetherRealm, the guys behind the legendary Mortal Kombat series, have taken it upon themselves to turn our, er, favourite WWE Superstars into Kombat-ised versions of themselves. And the resulting posters have to be seen to be believed.

First, there’s Cena, looking like his favourite superhero.

bellasThe best thing about this artwork is how true to life it is. Nikki has bigger boobs, while Brie looks like an alien. It’s perfect.

In all fairness, though, Immortals is pretty bad ass and the whole Mortal Kombat aesthetic works weirdly well for the Superstars.

A Squared Circle user also pointed out that some of the in-game artwork is really quite gorgeous, alerting us to this lovely representation of Paige (complete with lip ring!).

  1. […] super cute, locker room promo involving Jamie Noble, Joey Mercury and Seth Rollins as they shill Immortals and he scolds them for playing games instead of being focused on his match. He also has a great […]

    This move is his first signature maneuver and acted as a counterpart for Lesnar’s F-5 move.
    Swords, Tactics, and Magery should start to get respectable.

    It is believed that there existed shrines devoted to this ancient
    art where ritual dances took place where humans wrestled with
    divine Shinto spirits called Kami.
