Game Basics:
U,D,L,R (in-ring view) - move wrestler around
U/D (out-of-ring view) - enter/exit ring
A - grapple/pin/confirm maneuver/call in partner illegally
B - select maneuver/tag partner
Select - choose between '1P' and '2P' modes
Start - begin the game/pause

A 1-player match continues infinitely until the player loses a match. A
trophy is awarded which increases in size after a set # of wins, up to 25.
The titles won are as follows:
3 wins - American Tag Team Champions
8 wins - European Tag Team Champions
15 wins - World Tag Team Champions
25 wins - Super Tag Team Champions
After 25 wins, the trophy screen will turn blue, but the size of the trophy
will remain the same. A 2-player match is 2 out of 3 falls to decide a winner.

After connecting with a grapple attack (A), you have three seconds to cycle
thru a list of moves using the B button and execute the chosen move with
the A button. Each character has 7 regular moves plus an eighth move that
can only be used against one of the opponents (their 'rival'). Executing
certain moves while close to the ropes will toss the opponent out to the
floor and switch to the out-of-ring view (duh). If both wrestlers go out
to the floor simultaneously, there will be a steel chair outside, and neither
wrestler can reenter the ring until someone uses it.
At certain times, the computer wrestlers will turn red, at which point they
are in a 'rage' and cannot be hurt until they hit you. This happens most
often when you do not attack for a while or if the computer is seriously
behind (cheating!).
If your wrestler is in a submission hold and is close to giving up, you can
press the A button to summon your partner illegally.
In certain matches, you can 'power up' your wrestler by making a # of tags to
your partner without touching the opponent at all. The rounds are:
Round 5: 1 tag, Round 11: 2 tags, Round 18: 3 tags, Round 28: 3 tags
