In an Acclaim World Wrestling Federation game, you could spend hours tweaking your wrestler's uniform. Fed-up fans migrated en masse to THQ's postively elegant WCW games. Shorn of its would-be cash cow, Acclaim moved on to the outlaw Extreme Championship Wrestling league, whose claim to fame was liberal use of fake blood in barbed-wire cage-matches. If the worst special effect in movie history was the hand-drawn snake pit in Bruce Li in New Guinea (an actual movie, I kid you not), a good candidate for worst video-game graphics were the pixilated blood spurts in Acclaim's ECW games.
Eh, everybody thinks wrestling uses fake blood, and I don't think Nintendo.com is internationally renowned for its exemplary journalistic standards. Hell, in the next sentence, the guy misspells "pixelated," a word you'd think a video-game writer would know.
The first ever ladder match was actually in 1992, and it was between Shawn Michaels and Intercontinental Champion Bret Hart. Hart brought the ladder match to the WWF from Stampede Wrestling. WMX was just the first ladder match of TV or PPV.
