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. But it wasn’t just on TV stations that these battles were happening. WWF and WCW were also competing in the video game market to see who could produce the best, and ultimately, the most popular releases, and the interesting thing is, these wars played out exactly the same on video game consoles as they did on television. 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. So let me take you on a journey through three generations of games consoles, three eras of wrestling, and a whole lot of attitude, as we look at The Monday Night Video Game Wars.

As Hank Scorpio once said, “it’s the little things that make up life,” and you should never argue against the leader of Globex Corporation. The smallest of details can make the biggest differences, and that’s certainly true when it comes to wrestling.

The simplest of additions turn the forgettable into the memorable, but what are the greatest small details in sports entertainment? Well, fear not, I’ve got you covered. Here are the Top 15 Best Little Touches in Wrestling.

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). So here they are, the Top 10 Best Dropkicks in Wrestling.
