Legends of Wrestling is a wrestling video game based on the greatest wrestlers of all time, from WWF/WWE, NWA, WCW, WCCW, AWA, ECW, and various independent promotions. It was developed and produced by Acclaim. It was released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2, then in 2002 for the GameCube and Xbox. A sequel, Legends of Wrestling II, was released in 2002.

Legends of Wrestling brings 42 of pro wrestling's all-time best out of retirement and back into the ring. You play as Bret "The Hitman" Hart, Jerry "The King" Lawler, Hulk Hogan, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, George "The Animal" Steele, and others. You can also create your own wrestler or build a team of wrestlers.

The game features a selection of match types, ranging from the 3 and 4-way dances to tag bouts. Singles and tag-team career mode take you to arenas across the U.S. and all over the world. Throughout, you can link moves together to create near-lethal combos. Special guest referees are on the lookout all the while.

Legends of Wrestling's TV broadcast style uses new camera angles and cutscenes. In-depth match analysis and career guidance comes from "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart and Captain Lou Albano himself. Interactive wrestler entrances, complete with crowd responses and grappler taunts, heighten the realism. And if you want to go super pro, use the create-a-stencil feature to add logos and text to the ring attire of your favorite legends.

Legends of Wrestling is the first-ever wrestling game to combine all of the greatest superstars from all over the world in one place, and the action takes place both in the ring and in the crowd.
