** Speaking of the Wrestling/{{WWE}}, in 1994, before 4Kids and Renaissance-Atlantic picked up the concept, the [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} then-WWF]] originally explored the idea of taping a weekly Saturday Morning show at Universal Studios in Florida featuring worked matches, but with martial artists instead of pro wrestlers. This idea fell through, but the basic concept of a weekly worked fighting program at Universal Studios in Florida should not be alien to fans of the [[TNAImpact Impact Zone]].

** This wouldn't be the last show to think ProfessionalWrestling could go well with Franchise/MortalKombat. However, thanks to Creator/RobertRodriguez and his [[DarkerAndEdgier grindhouse sensibilities]], Wrestling/LuchaUnderground definitely wouldn't be... [[JustForPun 4]] [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment kids]]

Complicating the matter even more is Creator/NetherrealmStudios, the makers of Mortal Kombat, making a Wrestling/{{WWE}} game, ''WWE Immortals'', which definitely shows its developers' signature touches.

* HilariousInHindsight: Chris Cassamassa, a.k.a. Red Dragon, played Scorpion in the first ''Film/MortalKombat'' movie, way before an Earthrealm faction called Red Dragon made [[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance their official appearance]] in the games proper.

* {{Narm}}: It's got it in spades. The over-the-top costumes (particularly Hakim "The Machine" Alston's {{ComicBook/Cyborg}} cosplay entrance gear) and presentation as a real-life video game may draw laughter even from folks who regularly watched the show as kids. Also, most of the Masters were cast for their martial arts talent, not their acting ability, and it shows at times.
** NarmCharm: That being said, that presentation and atmosphere helped make WMAC Masters unique, sometimes sticking in your memory long after you've forgotten it's name, and even to people finding it on the net the show has a goofy charm that a lot of kid's shows from the time have.

* GrowingTheBeard: The Second Season

* GrowingTheBeard: The Second SeasonSeason. The addition of a plot besides just spin-kicking towards a prize helped give the show focus. The acting also improved, which helped sell that what was happening behind the scenes was important

* LighterAndSofter: Arguably this to the UFC, which at the time was still in its "There are no rules!" phase.
This list shows the last 10 events of 16. Show all.
