JOIN THE WWF SUPERSTARS
Are you ready to face the ultimate test of your wrestling skills? Because

action could get so heated that the match will spill out of the ring into
the arena floor!

after the same thing you are: victory! And they're willing to use every
skill they have in order to attain it!
Get ready for action that's more than just a wrestling match. Get ready

FOR SPECIALTY MATCHES
In tag team matches, you control the actions of both wrestlers.
(NOTE: One exception to this is when you are playing a two-player vs.
computer match utilizing the Game Link; in that case, each player controls
one member of the tag team battling the computer's team.)
To tag out to your partner, move to the ropes on the side of the ring near
your partner and press the SELECT BUTTON.
In cage matches, you win by either pinning your opponent or by escaping to
the top of the cage while your opponent is down on the mat. Remember, too,
that turnbuckle moves and tag team competition may not take place inside the
