Crapper Brendan Docherty (@BrendanDocherty) sent in this video that he made to WrestleCrap’s Twitter Feed (@WrestleCrap) of WWE 2K15 done like the old WWF Raw Sega Genesis/Super Nintendo game.

That is amazing! You put such great details into the graphics!

I would buy this game in a heartbeat! WWF Raw on the Super Nintendo was and still is one of my favorite wrestling video games.

Very well done, Brendan!

    I’m more excited from that than the actual game trailer. Love the $9.99 sign the most. The last couple of WWE games started.getting too complicated for my old brain to handle so I could get into a older simpler version. Now that these young whippersnappers beat me constantly at Call of Duty it may be time for me to retire to Pong or electric shuffleboard.

      The older wrestling games from the NES-SNES-Genesis era weren’t any less complicated. Especially when it came to using a wrestler’s finishing move,

      • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

        I always sucked at doing finished moves.

        • CP says:

          It depended on the wrestler. Bret, Owen, Yoko, Razor, the Kid, Taker, Bam Bam, HBK, Diesel, and I wanna say Doink were pretty easy to do because those just involved pressing a trigger button. Especially with the Harts and Diesel, because it was the right trigger.

          • Guest says:

            The old genesis controllers didn’t have triggers.

          • Tempest_Fennac says:

            I always had problems with Lex Luger’s finisher (for some reason it never even seemed to do any damage and opponents frequently stood up straight after it was hit; I don’t know if it was a bug that was present in all copies of the Megadrive/Genesis version or whether there was just something wrong with my cartridge).

      • John C says:

        I had better controller reflexes back then and had more patience for remembering move sequences. Now even Madden is getting too much for me to look at.

    A winner is us!

    (Yes, I realize that was from the NES Pro Wrestling game not the old WWF ones.)

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Oh man, now I want to play Pro Wrestling on the NES- much better than the WWF games on that system.

      • Scrooge McSuck says:

        I much preferred WCW World Championship Wrestling over all the WWF titles. Great roster, too: Dr. Death, Flair, Luger, Sting, Road Warriors, Sullivan, Rick Steiner, Mike Rotundo/a, Michael Hayes, Steamboat, and HOT STUFF EDDIE GILBERT. That’s a lineup.

        • Paul S says:

          I’m rather partial to Temco World Wrestling. Great music, some nifty graphic effects, moves that kick in depending on how fatigued your wrestler is, plus the little color commentary box at the bottom.

    Back to a time when the two Stings wouldn’t be $10 DLCs but secret codes to unlock…

  4. Mister Forth says:

    Now I want this to be a mobile phone game.

  5. Doc75 says:

    unbelievably brilliant. yet it makes me feel old lol.

  6. AdamX says:

    I’m saddened they did not include any shots involving the bucket.

    That said this was pretty sweet and I used to rule the ring come Rumble time.

  7. Just Josh says:

    I would play this for sure.

    Also, liking the shout-out to Live Audio Wrestling in the crowd.

  8. Ryan says:

    Still own the Raw game on my Genesis. For the most part the finishers were easy enough since you had to get the opponent in low health then max out during a grapple meter and hit AB together, even easier if they had a turnbuckle finisher like Doink or Yokozuna. HBK and 123 Kid were the hardest because you had to have the guy groggy and get behind him for the Slingshot Suplex (HBK), or groggy and then on the turnbuckle for the Moonsault (123). Luger’s was hard too because you had to bounce the opponent off the ropes while running off the ropes yourself to land the clothesline.

    Unfortunately I didn’t have the super controller with six buttons instead of three so I couldn’t perform the super finishers like Doink punting a guy out of the ring or HBK spinning mid-air for three seconds before dropkicking a guy off screen.

  9. Boffo97 says:

    I’d buy this, but still wish we could buy Wrestlefest on a system that isn’t dependent on trying to button mash on a touchscreen.

    That is awesome
