This is an arcade-style wrestling game in which players choose from current and classic WWE characters to compete in wrestling matches. Players punch, kick, and perform a variety of exaggerated wrestling moves (e.g., slamming opponents to the mat from high in the air) to deplete opponents' life meters; competitions are highlighted by impact sounds and shockwave effects. Weapons such as baseball bats, chairs, and wooden boards can also be used to strike opponents, who often collapse to the ground when hit. A few live-action clips depict a wrestler spraying cans of beer around the ring; there are also a handful of beer references in the dialogue (e.g., "Does anybody have a cold beer for Steve Austin?" and "Drinking beer . . . and raising hell . . ."). The words "a*s" and "damn" are sometimes heard in the game.
