TRIVIA

Released in December 1986.

This was the first Wrestling game on the NES.

The names of the promotions depicted in this game, the Video Wrestling Alliance (VWA) and the Video Wrestling Federation (VWF), were most likely based on the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), which were the 2 biggest U.S. wrestling promotions at the time.

The game contains the very well-known 'engrish' line, 'A Winner Is You.', which was named the 5th worst game line ever in the January 2002 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly.

In 2007, World Wrestling Entertainment released a shirt which parodies the cover art for Pro Wrestling which features an '8-bit' portrayal of WWE Superstar John Cena.
