Wrestling games are video games that can be arguably considered a sub genre of Fighting games. Most game sites consider it to be separate genre.
Wrestling games can be hard to classify because of the different engines and gameplay mechanics. Wrestling games rarely, if ever, incorporate any kind of life meter found in Fighting games. They don't have the ability to jump on command (only moves done from the turnbuckle, from the inside ropes to the outside, ladder, table, etc). Combat is slower paced and methodical, often using a system of grapples and strikes. Emphasis is put on match types, such as having cages or having pin falls count anywhere.
