Ranking Every Pro Wrestling Video Game for the Original Sony Playstation

Pro wrestling games for the Sony Playstation have ranged from joyrides to putrid time-wasters and have featured the rosters of WWE, WCW and ECW.

Travel back to when WWE and WCW fought over fans' attention, to when The Rock and Austin traded fists, when the NWO made villainy cool. The Playstation's peak coincided with the Monday Night Wars and video games became another component of that rivalry.

Acclaim, THQ and EA Sports all attempted to cash in on wrestling's popularity.

WWF SmackDown! represented the best of what was capable with the Playstation while the ECW games would have stunk it up regardless of the console.

Based on the quality of graphics, controls, options and how much gameplay resembled what we saw on TV every week, the following are the all the pro wrestling games for the PS1 from worst to first. (PS3, Retro)
