“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.

  2. ScMcS says:

    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.

    • ScMcS says:

      At the Huckster’s age, his feet don’t leave the ground.

      • AK says:

        I think I was most impressed with Hogan’s picturesque perfect drop kicks even if every wrestler in the game looked the exact same when doing one.

        I do recall always trying to do a drop kick as my finisher when playing as Earthquake or Typhoon because well, I’m pretty sure that would be more devastating than a Big Show KO punch.

    • Drew says:

      But Sid would only have HALF the pixels that Hogan had.

  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.

  9. Steve wrestling headgear says:

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

  10. Walt says:

    I like Super Wrestlemania for the fact I could play as Hulk or as LOD. I also liked the Survivor Series match.

    Royal Rumble was my fav. Ric Flair or Ted DiBiase was my fav to use. My sister and I used to laugh as Yokozuna’s moobs.

    RAW was good and the bucket was a nice weapon. I also liked how if you abused the ref too much he would flail his arms and walk out of the ring, making it a Brawl.

    One game that I liked was on the NES, Steel Cage Challenge. I figrued out how to do a powerbomb, it was cool to use Sid and toss guys over the top rope. Hogan was usually my champ with Money Inc as tag champs. Had to make sure Ted Dibiase was announced last though, IRS’ “music” was just as annoying as RTC’s in No Mercy

  11. Jeremy says:

    After watching this and the in-studio “snowed in” Raw this week, now I want them to bring back Prime Time Wrestling.

  12. Mister Forth says:

    Too bad we can’t have Gorilla and Brain host a “Let’s Play”.
