In this final appearance of Fire Pro series
on 16-bit consoles, the usual roster of over 150 wrestlers from several wresting promotions worldwide including several styles from Shoot or Pancrase to American and Lucha are joined by 80 Create-a-wrestler slots, plus secret wrestlers such as legends Gotch or Thesz or the roster of Blazing Tornado
. While all fighters have fictional names, a lot of them are perfectly recognizable by their attire, stance and style. The CAW mode allows the player to create a wrestler from scratch, setting how they look (choosing face, size, clothing and setting colours) and fight, with several styles and stances available, as well as over 500 moves, each more suitable for certain styles and skills. To make them fight more realistically when controlled by the AI, the CAW mode also allows one to set move priorities.
Five game modes are available, including World Championship (single and tag), Battle Royale, 5-man Elimination Mode, League Battle and the One Night Dream Match. There are several referees available (each with their own quirks) and variant rules, from allowing fighting outside the ring without count-out (or disallowing it) to the disabling of disqualifications from illegal moves.

There are no rankings for this game.
There are currently no topics for this game.
While the series are a Japanese affair only (except the latest GBA titles), an almost complete translation
for this title emerged, which helped to popularize the series in the Western markets, taken by surprised with the number of Wrestlers and federations included.
Along it, the complete CAW mode, allowed those with basic English skills and good wrestling move knowledge to create their own SRMs (the file format used to store battery save info by emulators) with their favourite WCW and WWE Superstars. Sadly, many of these files are no longer available, as many of the free hosts used by creators during the early 2000s now folded or deleted inactive accounts.
