The Monday Night Video Game Wars

During the 1990s, we witnessed one of the biggest rivalries in television history: The Monday Night Wars. Two behemoths of sports entertainment competed on a weekly basis for ratings supremacy until one of these juggernauts finally fell.

The highs and lows of both companies were just as apparent in their games as they were on TV, and it made for some fascinating results.

With all the dozens upon dozens of wrestlers who have performed this move night in, night out in the last few decades, trying to decide who does/did it best is a rather difficult task, but I was willing to put in the effort for all my loyal marks out there (thanks for the support, guys).
