AEW has given a potential game name, Fight Forever, to their upcoming wrestling entry on console and PC.

According to a patent published by AEW, Fight Forever could be the title of the game. The patent was filed on March 21st and is described as a title for future downloadable software and gaming. The buzz around the internet points to this being the official name of AEW’s first wrestling game.

This will come as a relief to those who thought AEW was just going to call it AEW Game. Fight Forever is a popular wrestling chant in live shows. Most audience members chant “fight forever” whenever they see two wrestlers in an amazing match. Fight Forever is also the name of a GCW PPV in 2021. GCW had a 24-hour event with continuous matches.

If this is the official title for the AEW game, one wonders why AEW did not name it after Dynamite, Rampage, or All Out. Every major wrestling program has named its first 3D game after one of its events. Raw, Smackdown, Nitro, Thunder, WrestleMania, and King of the Ring are just a few examples. Will Fight Forever become its own event to help promote the game, similar to WCW’s Mayhem PPV?

With WWE 2K22 charging out of the gate with mostly favorable reviews, AEW is on the defensive to make sure they can clinch the market. They have an uphill battle in front of them. One of the responses the AEW game development team gave regarding WWE 2K22’s release was that they are not going to compete with their competitor’s graphical power, rather they are going to focus on the gameplay.

I have a few critiques of WWE 2K22 that I hope AEW could fix in their game, but mostly Fight Forever will have to work very hard to carve out their own foothold in the market. We don’t want them to be remembered as TNA: Cross the Line for their first outing.
