WWF WrestleMania Challenge is a professional wrestling video game based on the World Wrestling Federation, released in 1990 for the Nintendo Entertainment System by LJN.

The game features nine wrestlers: The Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan, "Macho King" Randy Savage, André the Giant, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, The Big Boss Man, Ravishing Rick Rude, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, and "Yourself" (a generic character).


Features include fluid gameplay and unique (albeit small) move sets for each wrestler. Matches are presented at a high-angle, isometric view of the ring which includes the wrestlers' stamina bars along the apron. An empty bar will render the player vulnerable to pinfalls.

Modes of play include a one-on-one match, a tag team match, a three-on-three Survivor Series elimination match (in the latter two the player can cause their NPC partner to attack the NPC opponent inside or outside the ring) and a championship mode where the player takes control of "yourself" (a generic character) and must defeat all of the game's wrestlers to win the championship. Also included is a two player-only tag team championship mode where the players control two "yourself" characters and must defeat the game's wrestlers in a series of tag team matches to become champions.
