Earlier this week, former Nintendo Power writers Chris “The Hoff” Hoffman and guest host David “The Ox” Oxford reunited at long last to form the ultimate tag team as they proceeded to layeth the smacketh down on the topic of wrestling video games on Nintendo platforms through the ages on the Power Pros podcast. From Pro Wrestling on the Nintendo Entertainment System to the sports entertainment spectacles of today, these Mega Powers talk about the most memorable wrestling games ever to put butts in Nintendo-branded seats.
In addition, we look at what we would love to see from a new version of the NES classic Pro Wrestling, as well as how we think a Mario (and Mega Man!) wrestling game might work. Finally, in the main event at the top of the card, we square off in a title bout to determine which Superstars of World Wrestling Entertainment would be best suited to fill the roles of the colorful cast of personalities featured in Super Punch-Out!! for the Super NES in the hypothetical case of a live-action movie!
It’s WrestleMania weekend and you can feel the electricity in the air, so be sure to soak it all in as you listen to these two talking titans go one-on-one by clicking here (you can also find us on iTunes).
And that’s the bottom line.
