WOL: A deep dive into pro wrestling video games

A pre-taped edition of SmackDown Friday didn't update the Roman Reigns situation or that Braun Strowman is Goldberg's new opponent at WrestleMania, so we're talking wrestling video games on the Saturday edition of Wrestling Observer Live.

As both a longtime wrestling fan and gamer, I have been playing wrestling video games nearly since their beginning. We talk about everything from Tag Team Wrestling in the arcades, Pro Wrestling on the NES, WWF Royal Rumble on both the SNES and Sega Genesis, WWF No Mercy, WWF Smackdown: Here Comes the Pain, WWF Day of Reckoning, the WWE 2K series, and Fire Pro Wrestling World.

We take your calls and tweets on WWF WrestleMania 2000, WWF WrestleFest, WCW Superbrawl, WCW vs NWO World Tour. and some very obscure games like FMW and Antonio Inoki. I also tell you my all-time favorite game, a choice that isn't very common. 

Joining me is Patrick Davis, a video game documentarian who put together this look at WWF WrestleFest.
