Overview

Fire Pro Wrestling Combination Tag is a wrestling game and the first in the venerable Fire Pro Wrestling series from Human Entertainment (and later Spike). As with the games to follow, FPWCT allows the player to select from a range of fictional wrestlers (based on real wrestlers of the era) and compete in an isometric wrestling ring.
