If you’re a wrestling fan- there’s a huge lineage and legacy of games at your disposal. While the AKI and Human classics and games from Acclaim, 2K and Yukes all have their fans- there are even more titles hardcore fans must play. Here’s a handful you should grapple with today. 

Big Bang Wrestling: This one was just rereleased on Switch and has aged beautifully. It’s still super fun and accessible. 

Fire Pro Wrestling: Combination Tag: The one that started it all. It’s still playable to this day. 

Fire Pro Wrestling 2 (GBA): Yes l, Fire Pro gets two entries, but for two reasons. This may be the best handheld wrestling game ever. 

Wrestling Empire: MDickie’s cult classic may be one of the most underrated wrestling games ever. 

WWF in Your House: The roster of this game is a fun one and the wild arcade gameplay make it an underrated gem.
