Like its predecessor, WWF Super WrestleMania, the game is based on the American World Wrestling Federation. It highlights different types of matches including the new Royal Rumble. It also features wrestlers working for the WWF at the time, and each version of the game has its own five exclusive characters. It precedes the Sega Mega-CD game WWF Rage in the Cage and direct WWF Raw.

Game system

WWF Royal Rumble stages many movements. It also allows players to hit their opponents with a metal chair out of the ring. After striking the referee, who has become unconscious, forbidden shots such as strangulation are allowed. To avoid losing before the countdown, wrestlers must enter the ring; the entrance to the ring is on the left or right side.


The SNES version was developed before the Genesis version and thus replaces some characters. Both versions share the same seven wrestlers: Bret Hart, Crush, Razor Ramon, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, The Narcissist and Randy Savage. Five others are different depending on the version of the game. The SNES version offers Mr. Perfect, Flair Ric, Tatanka, Ted DiBiase and Yokozuna. The Genesis version provides Hulk Hogan, IRS, Jim Duggan, The Model and Papa Shango.
