“I’m the man that rules Nintendo!” -Bobby “The Video Game Brain” Heenan.

From WWF “Prime Time Wrestling” in 1992, Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby “The Brain” Heenan go one on one in an epic battle playing WWF “Super WrestleMania on the Super Nintendo while Vince McMahon calls all the action!

I like how Bobby wears his baseball cap backwards to show how hip and cool he is for the kids watching. I’d have definitely let Bobby hang with my crew when I was 12.

Be sure to check out Joe Gagne’s review of Super WrestleMania to understand what a mediocre game it really was.

    Super WrestleMania was ok except for the fact you couldn’t do finishing moves. Royal Rumble and Raw were my favorites. Didn’t care much for WrestleMania the Arcade Game and everyone knows WCW Superbrawl sucked.

    I played the hell out of Royal Rumble (SNES version), and still consider it my favorite game before the debut of the SD series for PS and WM 2000/No Mercy on N64. Its not perfect, but at the time, it felt awesome. I never played Raw (until more recent years), so it doesn’t have the Nostalgia feel like RR does.

  3. Emerson Witner says:

    Sid vs Hogan would have been so much better if Hogan hiptossed Sid over the top rope, but then missed a elbow drop from the top rope to the outside.

  4. Mariano Fernandez says:

    Royal Rumble was the best. SNES port specifically.

  5. Peter says:

    Yeah I was a Royal Rumble kid too, that game was great. We didn’t even care about who won or lost we only cared about three spots:

    1. Beat up the referee.
    2. Use the steel chair.
    3. Have a foot race on the outside into the guardrail to see who gets knocked down first.

    Ah yes, those were the days.

  6. ScMcS says:

    I would do 6-Man Tag Brawls and just have a blast fighting on the floor for 15-20 minutes, using chair after chair. Having the Rumble mode also brought me back to the days of WrestleFest. Yeah, not comparing the quality, but the ability to have more than a basic singles or tag match, and the deepest roster for a WWF game at the time.

  7. The Doctor of Style says:

    I wish my boss would order me to play video games!

    Those were nice promos by Perfect and Heenan, too.

  8. Time Lord Soundwave says:

    WWF Royal Rumble for Super Nintendo, besides being the first 16-bit wrestling game I ever played, is also the game that made me a wrestling fan. I had no interest in wrestling until a friend of mine rented the game. I’ve been a fan ever since.

    Fantastic “Super Nintendo”. Not got a chance to play.
