Clotheslines – every wrestler does them. Standing, running, leaping, flying, diving, corner, springboard, short-arm, the list goes on. Whatever the variation, it’s one of the most simple strikes in wrestling that every performer has used at some point, to varying degrees of success.

Names – they’re pretty important. In the crazy world of wrestling, it’s essential to get a name right as it’s often the first detail fans will know about you.

With around a dozen WWE games in my current collection, it’s rare that a day goes by where I don’t indulge is some virtual grappling. Despite my love for these games though, I will be the first to admit that they’re not perfect. While most of the games are Wrestlemania X-7 levels of good, some of their features are Wrestlemania 9 levels of bad. So today, I’m looking at the virtual atrocities in otherwise great graps games.

As Hank Scorpio once said, “it’s the little things that make up life,” and you should never argue against the leader of Globex Corporation.
