The Top Ten

1 WWE Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain

definitely deserves a remake! - robertoantonioortuso

The story mode is epic. Incredible roster of wrestlers to choose from. Plus it was the first WWE game to use the Elimination Chamber Match. - AP1090

Only game were the whole season roster can be my caws

I have so many good memories of playing this game back when I was in elementary school. Here Comes The Pain is such a complete game with amazing gameplay, a complete roster, and a really fun season mode. I wish my PS2 was still working, so I could go back and play one of my favorite childhood games and enjoy the nostalgia. - rapaddict97

2 WWF No Mercy

A simple yet effective control system, beautiful animations and a wide variety of moves make No Mercy the best American wrestling game.

Why is this not #1?

No mercy tops them all

WWF No mercy is the bar which is used to measure other wwe games
it is the best and most refreshing childhood memory - KingSurya

3 WWE Smackdown Vs. Raw 2007

I've been playing it for 4 years now ever since it came out I know all the grapple the strikes I'm the Undefeated legend from HELL! - SmoothCriminal

Me and bodies have created our own wrestlers and can play this all day. The only reason I still play my n64 in 2011.

The best mix of gameplay and story. This has everything you would want in a wrestling game. Very underrated. - HauntingStomper

Best one I've played and much better than 2008! - EliHbk

4 WWE Smackdown Vs. Raw 2008

The General Manager mode made it the BEST. I wish WWE 13 had GM mode that was as good as this.

The whole game was awesome and in ring side there was a place full of weapons

General manger mode so great to play
And we have ecw brand most extreme
Superstar

5 WWE Smackdown! Shut Your Mouth

I loved riding in the ring as Undertaker on his motorcycle. Awesome!

6 WWE Smackdown vs Raw 09

Chris Jericho y2j the name says it all

You are very good persen

7 WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2010

Tna sucked, I can't believe I wasted 5 bucks at a yard sale for it, never making that mistake again, but this game was great. The one thing that always bugs me though is that has anyone ever noticed how undertakers entrance always is off, in all games, I mean that he should let his coat drop to the floor but he doesn't.

This game was way better than anything before 09, and I would vote for svr11, but I hate universe mode. Its stupid and is unfortunately going to be on wwe12, but I still can't wait for 12 to come out.

Ask anybody and they will tell you; this game is one of the greatest of all time. Try it! - aeromaxx777

It has more Features than ever PUR AMAZING - SmoothCriminal

9 WWE Wrestlemania XIX
10 WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011

Better than every game unlocks of wrestlers and created wrestlers are awesome and we also have to make finishers and moves

The Contenders

11 WWE '12

Great game. Love it. Very addictive... Great graphics.. Counters are also good.. Realistic enough...

Its an epic game!, better graphics!, easier gameplay, More modes, WWE's games get better each year, bravo thq - SmoothCriminal

It is the best but 2k16 is better

Great

12 WWE: Day Of Reckoning 2

wwe 2k16

13 WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2006

MOST realistic wresling gameplay ever. BEST roster ever. 1st Ever & BEST GM mode of the series. Some of the BEST commentary in wrestling video games...

Gotta go SVR 2006. The roster was so deep.

It's SO DANG EPIC! I even have a wining streak in this game its fun relly relistic it should be like 1 or 2 I was playing my first match when I got the game I was cena I was fighting orton it was back and fort and it lasted 14 mins. it was very fun the roster is good fun match types and its just a fun game!

14 WCW/NWO Revenge

Wcw was way better than wwf. Wwf ruined wrestling. Now a days wrestling is sham

15 WWE 2K14 - Xbox 360

This felt so refined, that's why it's my favorite wrestling game. - Pony

Just because it has Razor Ramon

16 WWE Day Of Reckoning
17 WWF Wrestlemania 2000
18 WWE All Stars

It's so arcaded and has good quality

19 WWE 2K17
20 Def Jam Vendetta

nostalgia - Jonerman

21 WWE 2K16

This game is by no means the best wrestling or WWE game ever but its definitely better than the last two 2k games and WWE 12 and 13. I was never big on the s vs r series either all though there was one or two which were good. 2008 was pretty good. but 2k16 is a step back to the likes of the smackdown series of games.

22 WWE Raw 2

Best graphics to this day and entrances were too good! Only thing wrong was they discontinued it after this one but if the makers had a chance to improve things this would be WWE 2k competition

Best game til this day

23 WWF Attitude
24 WWE Smackdown vs. Raw

This game should have a better ranking...

25 WWE 2K18
26 WWF War Zone
27 TNA Impact!
28 WWF Smackdown 2: Know Your Role

I love this game its awesome WWF smackdown 2 know your role I think this game should be WWF smackdown 3 this is great it is not good as anyone else but I think its bloody amazing that the rock is the most electrifying man of sports entertainment stone cold runner up that's all that I can remember any way lets play a good game

Best wrestling game ever. - TekkenMaster

29 WWE: Smackdown! Just Bring It!

Back to the good old days! not the best but just trying to vote it up a bit - roblist

30 WWF Smackdown!
31 Pro Wrestling

For 1986, this game was well ahead of the competition. Compared to competition like "Tag Team Wrestling" and M.U.S.C.L.E., this game had great gameplay, special moves, and great characters.

32 WCW vs. The World
33 Backyard Wrestling 2
34 WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game
35 Fire Pro Wrestling Returns

Don't let the ranking fool you. 35 is super low for a game that delivers where most of the games above it fail in being a WRESTLING game. Programmable AI, 500 edit slots, you can realistically make any wrestler. So what if the game has a 2D style, GRAPHICS DON'T MAKE THE GAME. It's a top 5 Wrestling Game held down by the 'favorites'.

First where is super fire pro wrestling X premium? Second why is this game at 37? This is one of my favorite wrestling game/series. It has some great wrestlers in it like Shinsuke Nakamura, the Great Muta, Mike Awesome, Masato Tanaka, Steve Corino, and much more. I suggest this game being higher on this list and to get it if you have a ps2

36 WCW Nitro
37 ECW Anarchy Rulz
38 Backyard Wrestling: Don't Try This At Home
39 Def Jam: Fight for NY
40 WWF Raw

I know it has crap controls but the graphics in the background look very awesome compared to other wrestling games - htoutlaws2012

41 World Championship Wrestling (NES)

This is the only true WCW Wrestling game to ever get released, and I had the privilege to play it. Wonderful experience! - jimmy12lee

42 WWE Legends of WrestleMania

That game is so pack up with some of the greatest legends

43 WWE Brawl
44 WCW Backstage Assault
45 Simpson's Wrestling
46 WWF In Your House
47 WWF WrestleFest
48 WWF Royal Rumble
49 WWE 2k15

It's the best game ever in the WWE and in the world of the greatest wreastling games - vedant3123
