Might as well get us a catch all wrestling game thread going for all the news, vids, and whatnot...like cool edits/caws you might've made or stumbled upon.

So yeah...

NEWS!

Fire Pro Wrestling World released their second Stardom DLC pack this week featuring 11 superstars complete with new edit parts, themes, and moves... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Lug2QW-5ug

Also, Retromania (the next notable wrestling game release) is looking like it'll be dropping this summer (July?). Jeff Cobb was recently added to the roster, and there is pre-order news up including a collectors edition box with manual and stickers (who doesn't like stickers?). For all the latest on the game and who will be filling out those last two roster spots, check out their website... https://www.retromaniawrestling.com

VIDS!

I posted this in the main thread awhile back, but here's 616Entertainment's full length version of the great history of WCW games series he did last year, it's a pretty fun watch... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYyOmUVhmc0

Looking for obscure/forgotten wrestling gems? Check out two of the most interesting Super Famicon releases that should've made their way over to the States along with Fire Pro...

Jikkyou Power Pro Wrestling '96: Max Voltage... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2oYWm26LFo

Gekitou Burning Pro Wrestling (poor man's Fire Pro)... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypDwrSNk6O0

There's also the great Zen-Nippon (All Japan) series which landed over here as Natsume Championship Wrestling, unfortunately the Japanese versions of those games aren't very English friendly.

Best of the bunch though, as far as non Fire Pro 2D releases go, I was extremely impressed with the updated home console version of Champion Wrestler for the Playstation. Shit's great and I'm surprised I hadn't heard of it until recently...

...you gotta love that commentary!

Oh, and here's a handy list of arcade wrestling games released back in the day. Sooner or later I'm gonna try each and every one of them out...

WHATNOT!

Love Fire Pro? Are you aware of the awesome laid back community over at the Critical Club? This is the place you'll wanna visit for all the latest news, creations, tips, and general discussion for arguably the greatest wrestling game series of all-time... https://criticalclub.com/

Sooner or later, I'm gonna get back on that Giant Bomb project I was working on last year....Wrestlemania season might be as good time as any. Here are a few of the edits I've been messing around with lately...
