TRIVIA
Mat Mania was released in October 1985 by Taito America, under license from Technos Japan.

In this version, TWA stands for Taito Wrestling Association. The ingame original misspelling of Insane Warrior's name has been corrected. Also, Blues Bloody is now called 'Golden Hulk'. (in reference of Hulk Hogan who debuted wrestling as 'Sterling Golden'. Golden Hulk's most powerful move is the leg drop, which is Hogan's finisher).

This game was originally known in Japan as "Exciting Hour - The Prowrestling Network".
A 2-Player version of this game is known as "Mania Challenge".

Rac Carpana holds the official record for this game with 5000150 points.
