No, Macho Man Randy Savage isn't being worked into the game, but it's back to that era of wrestling if you download Natsume Championship Wrestling, now available for Wii virtual console. I can't say for sure I ever played this game, but it's likely because I played a lot of wrestling games as a kid. Some of this was fueled by the fact that Hulk Hogan was ultra-popular when I was in middle school. Another factor is that one of my neighbor ladies dated The Macho Man in high school. She even pulled out the old yearbooks to show us a picture, and he looked very much the same, aside from the receding hairline and the massive steroid fueled biceps. In fact, she said he was a very nice guy, and extremely likeable. While that has nothing to do with the game, it sure takes me back to the 80's and what I thought was sure to be the hey day of sports entertainment.
