Y, 4-player simultaneous games at arcades were loads of fun. I wonder if it ever saw a home port that was 4-player capable? Hmmm..

It would be possible on the Jaguar using the Team Tap.  :)

True. And Jaguar would have done arcade-close graphics as well.

I looked up SNES and MD versions of Saturday Night Slam Masters on youtube, and the SNES shows 4 players on screen at the same time. I know there was a 5-player controller adapter sold for SNES. That would be cool with three other friends on SNES. I wonder if Genesis/MD allowed 4 players with any of its 4-controller adapters?

This game has the look and feel of the Street Fighter games, only in a wrestling ring. Interesting note is that one of the posters below the youtube video says that the character Chun Li can be seen in the crowd.

Saturday Night Slam Masters (ARCADE)

Well it is by Capcom and Final Fight's Hagar is one of the characters among others.

That looks like a good game on Lynx. I always wanted to try a Lynx, but handhelds were never a favorite of mine even though I have three Gameboys.

I am a little confused though. Are we talking about wrestling games specifically, as in ropes and a ring, or are standard fighters open to discussion on this thread as well.

It should be wrestling.  That's the closest thing on the Lynx, which is why I posted it.  Seems most people view it as a type of wrestling title.

well no it isn't Pitfighter is classed as a one on one fighter and not wrestling, there is no ring, although it has characters that could resemble wrestlers, but it's not a wrestling game.

Keep it clean, we came to see a fight not a dance :)

That's a lot of wrestlers!  How many players is this game for?

Pretty poor game in my opinion! There are a few others on the PC Engine:

Wrestling Universe AJW vs JWP PC Engine Arcade CD Gameplay

Fire Pro Wrestling Combination Tag - 1989

[PC Engine] Monster ProWrestling ????????? [TurboGrafx-16]
