Whereas Baseball and 10-Yard Fight feel sterile and hollow (despite my love for the former), Pro Wrestling exudes personality and character. A winner is it.
There is only one game mode, where your selected wrestler must battle through the other wrestlers twice in a row before taking on the Great Puma for the championship. However, the gameplay is so well-thought-out that it allows players to simulate a pro wrestling match fairly closely, making for a very enjoyable experience. The two-player mode is also a blast!
Although it's a bit hard, this is fun. Played as a two player game it's loads of laffs.
Il est difficile de gagner contre l'ordinateur tant qu'on ne possède pas les mouvements à fond. Par contre, à 2, ce jeu s'avère très amusant dès les premières confrontations.

Im Vergleich zum gleichnamigen „Pro Wresling“ für das Sega-Videospiel ist die Nintendo-Version um Längen besser. Wer sich für diesen Sport begeistert, wird mit Pro Wrestling sicher zufrieden sein. Sechs verschiedene Gegner und viele, viele Schlagtechniken und Spezialwürfe zeichnen es aus. Die Animation der Kämpfer läßt allerdings etwas zu wünschen übrig. Ich habe einige Zeit gebraucht, um mich mit der nicht unkomplizierten Steuerung zurechtzufinden. Manchmal war ich knapp davor, das Joypad in die Ecke zu feuern. Wenn ich mich für ein Prügelspiel entscheiden müßte, würde ich „Punch-Out“ gegenüber Pro Wrestling ganz klar den Vorzug geben. Wer nur an einer Catch-Simulation interessiert ist, der soll sich Pro Wrestling ruhig genau ansehen.

All in all, Pro Wrestling makes for a really solid wrestling game, especially for a such an early venture into the genre. I would’ve liked to see tag matches, and some options for no countouts or longer match lengths, but I’m definitely glad they got as much of the fundamentals like special moves and play control right from the jump. It’s an arcade-style experience, so it’s probably not going to hold your attention for much more than a lazy afternoon, but it’s quite decent while it lasts, and I think you can make a pretty strong case that it’s the best of the NES wrestling titles. I definitely recommend giving it a try if you’re a fan of pro graps or if you want to see where the genre started, but piece of advice, when you get to Great Puma, heed the advice of the late Eddie Guerrero: Cheat to Win.

Globalement, la version Nintendo est donc supérieure à ce que propose la Sega.
The graphics are plain, sound OK'ish and play is pretty mediocre. This is not a bad game it just fails to grab your attention or enthusiasm. Now that Wrestling is to be taken off TV it could be the kind of game to play on a rainy afternoon.
