Legends of Wrestling is a series of professional wrestling video games based on the best wrestlers of all time, from WWF/WWE, NWA, WCW, ECW, TNA and various independent promotions. It was developed and produced by Acclaim. It was released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2, then in 2002 for the GameCube and Xbox. In 2006, Canadian game publisher Throwback Entertainment acquired the license and publishing rights to Legends of Wrestling.

Legends of Wrestling

Main article: Legends of Wrestling

Legends of Wrestling was released on PlayStation 2 in 2001 and on the Xbox and Nintendo GameCube in 2002. It contains some of the biggest names in pro wrestling.

Legends of Wrestling II

Legends of Wrestling II is the sequel to the professional wrestling video game Legends of Wrestling. It was published by Acclaim Entertainment and released on November 26, 2002 for both the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube. It was then released later for the Xbox on December 5, 2002. Legends II contains 24 new wrestlers, though also excludes Rob Van Dam, presumably because he had recently been signed to a WWF contract following the recent end and buyout of ECW. However, the game did contain Eddie Guerrero, who, although unemployed at the time he signed a likeness deal, re-signed with WWF when the game was released.

The PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions included video interviews with many of the legends featured in the game while the European version of the game exclusively included four legends from the United Kingdom.

Showdown: Legends of Wrestling

Showdown: Legends of Wrestling is the third installment of the Legends of Wrestling video game series developed by Acclaim Entertainment for the Xbox and PlayStation 2. A version of the game for the Nintendo GameCube, as well as a PC port of the game, was also planned but was cancelled.

Rosters

All Legends of Wrestling games feature character rosters filled with wrestlers of the past. Several characters appear in all three games so far produced, whereas others only make an appearance in one or two. Legends of Wrestling II also features fictional characters that the player can compete against but not use themselves.
