I have no interest in Wrestling nor Wrestling games but an Encyclopedia Bombastica is an Encyclopedia Bombastica :D

Remember Test because he's dead.

You can win the rumble @alex!

Posted by Goldanas

Thanks for looking at this, Alex. I was a WCW guy back in the day, so I ended up skipping this one when it came out.

Jeff only gave this a 7.1 on GameSpot back in the day.

I used to play this as lot a kid (as well as the WCW vs NWO games). I remember getting a kick out of throwing up middle fingers as Steve Austin.

@hassun: You know, I generally like to think I'm up on what wrestlers are dead and which are still with us, but that's one that escaped me entirely. Yiiiiiikes.

Mofos tryin' to tell me that the PS1 was better than the N64. The PS1 didn't have the best goddamn wrestling game ever made!

[edit] Did Alex say D'Lo Brown sucks?! Fuck Alex.

Am I remembering correctly that Mr. Ass is in this game?

Edited by ShaggE

I put more hours into this game than I have most sprawling RPGs.

Edited by Ben_H

I've played far too much of this game. It's so much fun. I must have played it for a few hundred hours at minimum.

Yes, complete with ability to moon your opponent as a taunt.

...but I love warzone! I should try playing it again/

The only thing WCW/NWO Revenge has that is superior to this game is the Starrcade song:

I totally forgot they did a bell ding for every crotch shot.

Alex Navarro turning heel halfway through the video, makes this competition next week seem more awesome.

Edited by Nodima

Anyone know what documentary Alex is talking about @ 53:00?

edit: also, I sort of have an itch for WWE 2K14 at $30 on PSN. I haven't played a WWF game since...Smackdown 2003? I get the impression it'd be utterly worth it to someone like me, but someone give me a thumbs up.

I also haven't watched wrestling since around that time but still listen to the power bombcast, certain episodes of Cheap Heat and read The Masked Man.

i pray for Gerstmann's failure in the PAX East Royal Rumble if he says anything positive about WWF Attitude

Some people at the time tried and claim that Smackdown! for the PS1 was superior to these AKI games. They are all dead wrong.

Posted by Phished0ne

Damnit Alex, I liked you until you said D-Lo Brown was bad, he was probably the best underrated wrestler of that era.

Edited by Dalai

Man this takes me back to when I cared at all about wrestling.

Posted by TehPickle

I fell out of loving wresting at the end of the 80s, but I loved this game!

Do No Mercy next!!!!

He had the best frog splash. THE BEST FROG SPLASH!

Posted by BeachThunder

That is a nice looking referee sprite. Pity the rest of the game looks like an awkward late 90s polygonal mess.

Edited by Amafi

The best AKI wrestling game ever is obviously Def Jam FFNY. No contest.

Posted by heatDrive88

@alex, don't forget that your best bet is to press the button that does an irish whip (I think it's the C-down button?) when near the ropes to throw someone out of the ring. If you can't do that, irish whipping someone into the ropes and then hitting them with a strong attack is still your best bet.

One last tip - don't forget that when you're getting up from being knocked down, you can hold onto the R button to stay crouched (so can't be hit or grappled), then press B or A to strike/grapple from the crouch. Great against those that hover over top of you when knocked down!

What I remember Test for was his huge nipples.

Oh and this was a fun EB entry, memory road and fartbelts. Good times.

How the fuck can you be over 10 and be into this shit. Gangrel? The wrestling vampire?

Fond memories of going to my uncles apartment and playing this / No Mercy into the wee hours of the morning. Good times

Posted by Ithmoliar

This game brings back memories you would not believe. The amount of time I spent playing this game is close to unholy!

Posted by PoisonJam7

Oh God, that music...it's bringing back a flood of memories!! I used to love these N64 Wrestling games.

Posted by csl316

Don't let us down at the Rumble, Navarro!

And don't trust Gerstmann!!

I think you just answered your own question.

GANGREL THE WRESTLING VAMPIRE

My odds on favorite is now Alex. Anyone who can carry the Road Dogg that far into a Royal Rumble has skills.

FARTBELT made me laugh. That is all.

Edited by RetroHelix85

How could you forget Test???? He was a big part of what was arguably the single most impactful storyline of that era. He was supposed to marry Stephanie, but Triple H kidnapped and wed her in a drive-thru chapel. That turned into an actual relationship between Trips and Steph, and here we are today.

Posted by Hallic

D'Lo Brown sucks? You must have him confused with somebody else......surely.

Posted by SmokePants

Maybe I just have different expectations for something that calls itself "Encyclopedia", but how about some damn research? Spend some prep time re-acclimating to the games and remembering the controls so you don't get beaten by Mideon.

I love the AKI games (I even own VPW 64 and VPW 2), but if I had never played them, seeing this would scare me off.

Posted by Vod_Crack

I like most of the wrestlers that Alex doesn't like.

Posted by NarficAcid

"I apologize if you are burning out on watching me play N64 wrestling games"

A complete impossibility, Alex!

Alex- I respect you, but the only person I fear is John Carnage from Twitch because he has the name of a wrestler.

D'Lo Brown was great.
