Game Play

There are two different games to select and play: Single Match or Tag Team "Battle Royal".

In Single Match, you can choose to be one of eight wrestlers. After you have selected a wrestler, you will compete in a world-wide tournament against the other nine wrestlers in respective matches. In each match, you must defeat each of your respective opponents by a pinfall, countout or submission in order to proceed to each of the following matches. If you beat all the opponents, you will become the champion and then you will have to face all opponents again to defend your title.

In Tag Team "Battle Royal", you get to choose any two of the ten wrestlers for your tag team. Here you and your partner have to eliminate both of the two wrestlers on the opposing tag team in order to win the match and proceed to the next. During these matches, if you are eliminated before your partner is, the match will be declared no contest and it will be a draw.

During each bout in this game, metal buckets and/or glass bottles will sometimes be thrown into the ring which can be picked by your wrestler(s) and used as weapons against your opponents.
