Along with him comes his greatest archrival, the “Golden Greek” JOHN TOLOS! These men feuded with other LWF luminaries like Lou Thesz, Rikidozan, the Destroyer, the Sheik, and Killer Kowalski, but their blood feud was like no other. They met in stretcher matches, dog collar matches, the “Blassie Cage” match, and Roman Gladiator death matches. What lengths will they go to hurt each other in your fed? It’s up to you, Promoter! The tabletop version of LEGENDS 11 is scheduled to begin shipping on December 15 and the online PC version will be available a few days later.
Also available right now are some new additions to our online PC games and printable PDF cards. Plenty of LEGENDS fans have asked for more women wrestlers so here comes the LOW LADIES 8-PACK!
