Whilst many wrestling fans will dream of one day entering the squared circle themselves, the sad reality is that only a select few will ever join the WWE roster.

And although the rest of the fans will never feel the rush of walking that aisle and giving their all in the ring, they still have the WWE video games.

Within the realms of WWE video games, anything is possible. You can team with your favorite Superstars, have those dream matches fans will never see, or in my case, book Tommy Dreamer as the greatest World Heavyweight Champion in the history of the WWE.

But despite there being dozens of WWE games created over the years, there have been plenty of secrets that fans are yet to discover.

Here are five things you didn't know about WWE video game.
