AEW: Fight Forever — every confirmed wrestler in the game

A wrestling video game is only as good as its roster, and that rings true for the upcoming AEW: Fight Forever. This game is still in development under Japanese studio Yuke’s, so its roster isn’t finalized yet. The promotion itself is home to over 130 wrestlers, but don’t expect them all to make an appearance in Fight Forever.

Still, the game currently has a lengthy list of confirmed wrestlers, with many more on the way. Here, we’ll go through the roster list for the upcoming AEW: Fight Forever.

Confirmed roster so far

So far, the roster is slim, but considering the game is still in development, it’s not too alarming to see an unfinished list of wrestlers at this stage.

Below is the confirmed list of wrestlers that’ll appear in the game.

  • Chris Jericho
  • Kenny Omega
  • Hikaru Shida
  • Matt Jackson
  • Nick Jackson
  • Darby Allin
  • Jungle Boy
  • Nyla Rose
  • Kris Statlander
  • Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.
  • CM Punk
  • Jon Moxley
  • “Hangman” Adam Page
  • Jade Cargill
  • Abadon
  • Yuka Sakazaki
  • Adam Cole
  • Paul Wight
  • Thunder Rosa
  • Pentagon
  • Owen Hart
  • Cody Rhodes

Of course, the list will likely grow over time and may even expand after launch. It’s unlikely AEW and THQ Nordic will make this an annualized franchise, so it’s possible Yuke’s will support the game with DLC wrestlers after launch.

This game will mark the first time Owen Hart will appear in a video game since 2004’s Showdown: Legends of Wrestling. It’s also fascinating that Cody Rhodes will be included since he left AEW for WWE earlier in 2022.

Unconfirmed wrestlers

Many of the promotion’s top talent has not been confirmed for Fight Forever. While these wrestlers could be announced for the game in the future, you shouldn’t count on all of them being featured.

Recently, it was confirmed that Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler of the FTR tag team will not be included in the game on day one. Given the tag team’s prominence in the company, this could set a precedent of the game excluding top talent, even wrestlers who might be fan favorites.

Below is a list of top AEW wrestlers who have not been confirmed for Fight Forever.

  • Bryan Danielson
  • Andrade El Idolo
  • Sting
  • Ruby Soho
  • Claudio Castagnoli
  • Swerve Strickland
  • Jeff Hardy
  • Keith Lee
  • Kyle O’Reilly
  • Buddy Matthews
  • Samoa Joe
  • Toni Storm
  • William Regal
  • Dante Martin
  • MJF
  • Eddie Kingston
  • Wardlow
  • Daniel Garcia
  • Matt Hardy
  • Malakai Black
  • Miro
  • Orange Cassidy

It’s highly likely the game will include wrestlers such as Bryan Danielson, Wardlow, and MJF, but at this point, they haven’t been confirmed. Given how so many top wrestlers have yet to be announced for the game, we’re worried Fight Forever will feel empty when it launches. Nonetheless, we look forward to more roster announcements.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse features an incredible video game Easter egg
Miles Morales falls through a multiverse portal in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is out now and it contains a wealth of Easter eggs for video fans to obsess over. It's full of references to Spidey's history, from his comic books to cartoons and beyond. The animated sequel even includes some nods to the franchise's video game history, leading to one of its best (and most obscure) references: Spider-Man for the Atari 2600.

(A quick heads up if you're afraid of spoilers: This article contains some very light story details for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.)

The Alienware x17 R2 Gaming Laptop viewed from the back.

If you're keen to game while on the move, you need a sweet gaming laptop. Regular laptop deals won't cut it as you need something with a dedicated graphics card and maybe even something with some cool gamer looks too. Gaming laptops aren't cheap but that doesn't mean there aren't some great deals around. If you're looking to invest in a cool new gaming laptop, we've picked out the current best deals around right now. We've considered different budgets as well as different requirements so there's something for everyone below. Take a look and see what appeals to you.
Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 -- $600, was $900

Known as one of the best laptop brands for both gaming and business purposes, Lenovo knows how to make a robust system. The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 packs a lot into its great price tag. It has an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H processor, 8GB of memory and 256GB of SSD storage. More storage space would be nice but if you're fine just having a few games installed at once, this won't slow you down. It also has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card which is great for playing the latest games if you don't mind tweaking the detail level. As well as that, there's a 15.6-inch full HD screen, white backlit keyboard and a cool-looking style to the laptop.

Nintendo Switch’s weirdest launch game is getting a surprise sequel
Key art for Everybody 1-2-Switch!

Nintendo has quietly announced Everybody 1-2-Switch!, a sequel to one of the oddest launch titles for Nintendo Switch.
1-2-Switch! was a Nintendo Switch launch title that served as a tech demo of sorts for the Joy-Con controllers, with players completing minigames based on direction from actors in live-action clips. It's a very quirky and critically divisive Nintendo Switch game, so it's a bit surprising to see a follow-up. According to the eShop listing for Everybody 1-2-Switch!, this game lets players use their Joy-Cons or smartphones to complete a variety of team-based minigames. And that's about all we've seen or know about this $30 game ahead of its June 30 launch alongside some new pastel Joy-Cons.

Everybody 1-2-Switch!'s announcement was quite unorthodox for Nintendo. It simply tweeted about the game's existence and opened up preorders on the eShop. This all happened with no reveal trailer less than a month before the game's launch. It's unknown why Nintendo's taking this approach instead of including the game in a Nintendo Direct or other major showcase, but a 2022 report from Fanbyte may reveal the answer. According to that report, Everybody 1-2-Switch! tested horribly, and Nintendo worried that the game could "damage the company’s reputation as a great software developer." 
Almost a year after that report, it seems that the game has improved enough to release, or maybe Nintendo is just willing to take the hit after the impressive launch and critical reception of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Either way, this is a weird sequel to a weird Nintendo Switch launch game that's being mutedly marketed so it doesn't elicit much hype. We'll just have to wait and play it for ourselves if we want to know whether Everybody 1-2-Switch! is an enjoyable game or not.
Everybody 1-2-Switch! will be released physically and digitally for Nintendo Switch on June 30.
