* IdiotAI: Each game has suffered from this to some degree. Notably, Legends of Wrestling II has enemy AI immediately go outside the ring for a weapon as soon as his opponent is dazed... even when DQs are active and the referee isn't down.

* SceneryPorn: The international arenas in Legends Of Wrestling two are a bit stereotypical (the one in Cairo looks like an ancient egyptian temple, the one in Rome looks like the Coliseum) but damn if they aren't freaking '''gorgeous'''.

* AllStarCast: And '''how'''!!!



* [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong The Jimmy Hart Version]]: Worthy of the trope's original name, as every single wrestler's theme in the game (that wasn't a public domain song, like [[Wrestling/HacksawJimDuggan "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan]]'s theme) was composed by the Mouth Of The South himself.

** Furthermore, Legends of Wrestling II is a game featuring all those great old school wrestlers you grew up with... and the soundtrack is by flavor-of-the-moth nu-metal bands like Saliva and Trapt.

Legends Of Wrestling features wrestlers from various different eras of professional wrestling, from old school guys such as Killer Kowalski and Wrestling/Bruno Sammartino to Rock'n'Wrestling era stars such as Wrestling/HulkHogan and [[Wrestling/TedDiBiase Ted [=DiBiase=]]] to even modern wrestlers such as Wrestling/RobVanDam and Wrestling/EddieGuerrero, although it'd be lying to say that Hogan himself wasn't the top attraction of the games, featuring prominently on every installment's cover. The second game also featured the late comedian Creator/AndyKaufman, with the career mode being able to relive his feud with Wrestling/JerryLawler.

In total, three instalments were released before Acclaim folded: ''Legends Of Wrestling'' in 2001, ''Legends Of Wrestling II'' in 2002 and ''Showdown: Legends Of Wrestling'' in 2004.

Creator/{{Acclaim}} always had its ups and downs as a video game company, but they always managed a certain degree of success with licensed ProfessionalWrestling [[WrestlingGame games]], first with Wrestling/{{WWE}} (before losing the license to THQ) and then with {{ECW}} (before the company went under). In 2001, without any prominent promotion to cash in on, they decided to go for a bold move. That move was '''Legends Of Wrestling'''.

* GlassJawReferee: Any in-game referee suffers from this, staying down for a considerable amount of time from the merest bump from an incoming wrestler. Since you can pick any in-game character to be a referee in this game, it becomes hilarious as EddieGuerrero bumps into AndreTheGiant, who rolls around in pain like he just got powerbombed by Godzilla.

* SoundtrackDissonance: A minor example, but it is incredibly unsettling to see the roided up, bleach blonde Scott Steiner enter the ring to his old "high school marching band" theme music.
