WWF - Wrestlemania (c) 1995 Midway Mfg. Co.

8 selectable wrestlers fights in mayhem with punishing head-to-head and team match-ups and gruelling WWF and Intercontinental title bouts. Features in-ring commentary by Vince McMahon and Jerry 'The King' Lawler.


Midway Wolf Unit hardware

Main CPU : TMS34010 (@ 6.25 Mhz)
Sound CPU : ADSP2105 (@ 10 Mhz)
Sound Chips : DMA-driven (@ 10 Mhz)

Players : 2
Control : 8-way joystick


WWF Wrestlemania was released in August 1995.

The Midway coin-op has, within its code, the engine for a graphical reworking of Robotron, to be played like "Pong" in "Mortal Kombat II". However, the graphics were removed due to memory constraints, so the feature remains disabled.

If you look in the crowd, you can see the people who made this game possible. Right smack in the middle, is Mark Turmell.Mark Turmell is the main guy responsible for this game. The others are :
* In the crowd from Turmell to the right...
Sal Divita (head artist)
Sheridan Oursler (hardware tech)
Josh Tsui (artist)
Eugene Greer (artist)
Tony Goskie (artist)
Mark Penacho (programmer, but not on this game)
* In the crowd from Turmell to the left...
Jason Skiles (programmer and avid Internet user)
Jake Simpson (programmer) (wearing the MK t-shirt)
Mancow Muller (radio dj on Rock 103.5 and devout WWF fan)
Sophia (Mancow's significant other)
Dewey Gosnell (network tech)
Jamie Rivett (programmer)

Here are the real names of the wrestlers:
Bret Hart - Bret Hart
Shawn Michaels - Michael Shawn Hickenbottom
Undertaker - Mark Calaway
Razor Ramon - Scott Hall
Bam Bam Bigelow - Scott Bigelow (1961-2007)
Yokozuna - Rodney Anoa'i (1966-2000)
Lex Luger - Lawrence Pfohl
Doink - Matt Osborne (1957-2013) (1st), Steve Keirn (2nd), Ray Apollo (3rd), Steve Lombardi (4th), Dusty Wolfe (5th).

The filming for characters must have been somewhere between July and September of 1993 judging by the appearances of the wrestlers in this game.

Legendary rumor that Adam Bomb is hidden within the annals of the game was confirmed by Sal DiVita in a review of the new 'WWE All Stars' game in 2011. However he stated that the character was incomplete and there was no sense in attempting to procure him.

About fatalities : The original plan was for all 8 wrestlers to have finishing moves, but once the WWF got wind of it, they ordered Midway to not put any more in.

The World Wrestling Federation is now known as World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), having lost a lawsuit with the World Wildlife Fund over the use of the abbreviation WWF in 2000. The company changed their name to WWE 2 years later.

At the time of the game's release, the WWF Champion was Diesel (Kevin Nash) who is absent from the game. However, at the time of the game's development, the WWF Champion was Yokozuna, who was a WWF Tag Team Champion at the time of release, his tag team partner Owen Hart (1965-1999) is absent from the game.
