AEW World Heavyweight Champion, Kenny Omega, has confirmed that one of the most popular wrestling gaming modes will not be a feature in the upcoming AEW console release.

Since All Elite Wrestling announced the creation of their much hyped video game, fans have been clamouring for several modes and features to be included in the release. Along with the same engine used for the popular WWF No Mercy fighter on the Nintendo 64, the most requested inclusion has been for a return of the General Manager mode.

Said gameplay sees the player put in the role of General Manager in order to take control of the company and make their own matches and storylines. The feature was a huge part of the Raw vs. SmackDown series prior to the takeover of 2K of the series and has not been seen since the 2009 version of the classic game.

Now, following the recent AEW Games 2.Show which ‘The Cleaner’ hosted, the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion has sat down with IGN Japan to discuss the game and state with certainty that GM Mode will not be part of the upcoming release, but there will be plenty of other modes to make up for it:
