Here’s some info on the game:
*Despite being based on professional wrestling, WrestleMania’s digitized graphics and fast-paced gameplay make it more of a fighting game than a Sports/wrestling game inspired by Midway’s popular Mortal Kombat series. What separates this game from previous and future WWF/WWE video games is its over the top and very cartoonish attacks. Examples include Doink the Clown pulling out a mallet out of thin air, Razor Ramon’s arm transforming into a blade, or Bam Bam Bigelow’s fists catching on fire. While actual wrestling moves are present, matches consist primarily of strike attacks and special moves. There are other similarities to the Mortal Kombat games, such as uppercuts that cause the opponent to go sky high, flawless victories and very tongue-in-cheek character animations.
