Pro Wrestling - NES Version - TM 1986 Nintendo
FAQ Revision 1.01b [3/11/99]
Donovan Keith -
Finally! The long-awaited (OK, so nobody was *really* waiting) FAQ for the
!first! major console wrestling game (unless of course the Sega Master System
game of the same name came out first...) Not much to it, I think I've got
everything except Hayabusa's finisher. (BTW, if anyone's interested, I think
Hayabusa is based on Japanese legend Antonio Inoki, as the Enzuigiri Kick
is the move Inoki made famous.) As usual, please e-mail if I've missed
anything and I'll credit you in the update. (no, really! Look at my other
FAQs if you don't believe me!)

Version 1.01b [3/11/99]
Added info on the Back Brain Kick. Thanx to and for info on the Back Brain Kick....
Game Modes:
Press Select at the title screen to choose between 1P and 2P mode.

1P vs. Com: Select your wrestler, who must defeat the other five to become
the 'VWA' champion, and successfully defend the title 10 times in a row to
beat the game. A double-count-out (20-count in this game, Japanese rules)
will result in your wrestler losing the belt, but the rematch will be for
the title. Of course, it erases your defending streak...The graphics for the
championship screen are quite cool for 1986.

1P vs. 2P: This is a two-out-of-three-falls contest. A double count-out will
result in 1 victory apiece, with the next match as tiebreaker. If the second
match is also a 2X count-out, the series is a draw.
