''Saturday Night Slam Masters'' (''Muscle Bomber: The Body Explosion'' [[MarketBasedTitle in Japan]]) is a [[WrestlingGame wrestling]]/[[FightingGame fighting game]] released by Creator/{{Capcom}} in 1993 for the {{arcade|Game}}s. The original game is a typical wrestling game set on the viewpoint used by fighting games, with the winning conditions being either a 3-count pin, 20 seconds ring out or forcing the opponent to give up. The story revolves around the [[{{Face}} CWA]] (Capcom Wrestling Association), which was formed by 8 different wrestling groups all led by Victor Ortega. When Ortega suddenly vanishes, the group falls into chaos and the [[{{Heel}} BWA]] (Blood Wrestling Association) takes advantage. A tournament is started to find the new chief of the CWA. The game itself has no actual story, and the endings are just the winning character bragging about his victory.
