Acclaim's wrestling sequel has over 65 old-school grappling giants, including...Andy Kaufman?

Discuss it in Talkback!

Here's the full roster for Legends of Wrestling II, which will be released in November for all three consoles. In addition to last year's main draw, Hulk Hogan, you can now play as Captain Lou Albano. Finally, you can be Mario from the Super Mario Super Show! Comedian Andy Kaufman is an odd addition, his only wrestling experience being a series of matches against women as he proclaimed himself the "Inter-Gender" champion. Kaufman also had a legendary (and probably staged) feud with Jerry Lawler, who is also a playable character. No word on whether David Letterman is available as a hidden special referee.
