Released on June 22, 1989 in Japan.

The first game in the Fire Pro Wrestling series, it is the first 4-player pro-wrestling video game.

Designed to cater to the "hardcore" pro wrestling fanatics, Fire Pro Wrestling includes wrestlers from many promotions facing off in inter-promotional "dream matches" as created by the player, something not normally possible due to the political nature of professional wrestling at the time. The wrestlers use the exact likeness as their real life counterparts, including their real moves and attributes, but were given fake aliases due to a lack of a wrestling license. The teams featured in the game will be listed below with their Fire Pro name on the left, and their real name to the right:


Victory Musashi = Antonio Inoki (New Japan Pro Wrestling)
