The Godfather was one of the most iconic wrestlers of the Attitude era, who also happened to be Papa Shango in a previous wrestling life with WWE. Lawler and Michael Cole stroll down memory lane during a match pitting the alter egos against each other.

Accidental mistake, or extra realism in the game? You decide!News Now - Sport News
