->''A WINNER IS YOU''

''Pro Wrestling'' is a WrestlingGame released by Creator/{{Nintendo}} in 1987 for the NintendoEntertainmentSystem. (It was originally released in Japan for the Famicom Disk System in 1986, as ''Puroresu: Famicom Wrestling Association''.) The developers of this game went on as Human Entertainment to create the ''VideoGame/FireProWrestling'' series.

Players can choose between the six wrestlers of the Video Wrestling Association (V.W.A.), and those who succeed in winning the title and defending it can face the perfect wrestler, Great Puma, champion of the Video Wrestling Federation (V.W.F.).

Not to be confused with the UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem game of the same title and released the same year, which was a masculinized version of the [[Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling AJW]]-inspired Creator/{{Sega}} UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame ''Body Slam''. Or [[ProfessionalWrestling wrestling]] in general, for that matter.
