Also the PS2 was the peak of the genre with games like Fire Pro Wrestling Returns, King of Colosseum or Squaresofts All Star Pro Wrestling III.
I enjoyed all of them, either the sim-heavy Fire Pro and King of Colosseum games and the more "arcady" All Star Pro Wrestling, but especially All Star Pro Wrestling III.
King of Colosseum II clearly was the best wrestling game on the system (but not the best looking one, that prize goes to ASPW3). But I liked All Star Pro Wrestling III enough to go through it's mediocre career mode again and again to make many wrestler edits and even wrote an (incomplete) move list translation, despite not speaking japanese at all.
To bad that the genre died quickly after it's success on the PS2. Most of the wrestling games since then were crap (since the PS2 era, I never played a WWE game again) and only Fire Pro Wrestling World looks promising. After all these years I might finally play a wrestling game again when it comes out on the PS4.
