Habbo.com has teamed up with WWE to send two fans to this year’s WrestleMania as part of a promotion which started this week. After being assigned a virtual avatar to one of 59 WWE Superstars, Habbo.com’s 1.6 million online citizens will vote for which of the top 30 WWE Superstars they think will play various roles in the upcoming Royal Rumble event. Users who correctly predict at least one of the roles will be entered into the sweepstakes where one will win a trip for two to the biggest event of the year. “WWE is giving fans access to our brand in new and exciting ways, utilizing virtual worlds, social networking sites, widgets, and much more,” said Geof Rochester, WWE’s Executive Vice President of Marketing. “This promotion with Habbo’s large, active community is a perfect fit for our expanding digital footprint.” (Thanks to Colin Vassallo)
