WCW vs. The World is a wrestling game published by THQ and developed by the AKI Corporation; it is the first game they had developed that was released outside of Japan. As the title implies it features some key WCW superstars and pits them against wrestlers from five different wrestling federations. The game features 14 WCW superstars and 39 other superstars from around the world. All of these 39 superstars are under alias names because THQ was not able to obtain the rights to use their names.
