GLEN COVE, NY, February 19, 2004 - Wrestling fans who have waited patiently for their hero to emerge from the shadows and return to the ring will once again feel the power of the "Stinger Splash," as Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ.SC: AKLM) today announced that it has exclusively signed Sting to appear in SHOWDOWN(TM): Legends of Wrestling(TM). Currently under development with Acclaim Studios Austin, SHOWDOWN(TM): Legends of Wrestling(TM) features more than 70 wrestlers, brand new "Ready To Brawl" controls, an enhanced engine and all-new licensed venues including Madison Square Garden and the Toronto SkyDome.

"The addition of Sting to the SHOWDOWN(TM): Legends of Wrestling(TM) supercard is something wrestling fans and Acclaim have craved since the brand's inception," said Brian Shields, Brand Manager for Acclaim. "Incorporating a wrestling icon of Sting's caliber further illustrates our commitment to creating an unmatched roster of wrestling legends."

"To return to the ring as a Legend is a huge thrill for me," said Sting. "I have read the reports and heard the rumors regarding my whereabouts. Well, let it be known that being added to the SHOWDOWN(TM) roster means one thing and one thing only for my opponents - the Stinger is back to rule the ring! Thanks to Acclaim, this June, all challengers will submit to the 'Scorpion Deathlock.' WHOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!"
