Game Introduction

The wrestlers in this game include Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, Earthquake, The Big Boss Man, Sergeant Slaughter, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Mr.Perfect, "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, The Demolition: Smash and Crush, and The Legion Of Doom: Hawk and Animal.

Game Play

A technically sound wrestling game with real moves -- not like WWF Wrestlemania -- that is more based on skill and not defense and special moves.

At the beginning of the game, you can choose either "Saturday Night's Main Event" tag team matches or the "Royal Rumble" battle royal.

For the first choice, there are two configurations where five victories are required for the title match against The Legion Of Doom. Once you make it to the title match, you must win it in order for your team to become the champions. After both configurations have been completed and both title matches have been won, the game ends. Also for that choice, you can choose The Demolition or any two individual wrestlers for your own tag team.

For the second choice, you can only choose any one wrestler, including one of The Demolition. Here you try to eliminate as many other wrestlers as you can without being eliminated yourself. If you are the last one in the ring, you win.
