Wrestling has gone up and down in popularity over the years. Entertainment industries like the WWE and businesses like UFC are the cornerstones. There are also fans of things like Olympic wrestling. The unfortunate truth is there aren’t many decent wrestling games on mobile. The mechanics are hard to get right, especially on a touch screen and with all the moves, it’s just a daunting task for a developer. Most of your options are arcade wrestling games with some gimmick to make things fun. Still, there are some decent options to try. Here are the best wrestling games for Android!

The best wrestling games for Android


80’s Mania

Price: Free to play

80’s Mania is a business simulator with an 80’s wrestling theme. It doesn’t have any real wrestlers, but there are some obvious homages to the greats of that era. You get a bunch of wrestlers, match them up, create rivalries, and once a month you do a supercard where you resolve all of those rivalries. It’s retro, charming, and often funny. Plus, the stats are fun to view as you create your little wrestling company. It’s not the best game, but it’s certainly fun.

EA Sports UFC

Price: Free to play

EA Sports UFC is definitely among the best wrestling games. It features prominent fighters from both the male and female circuits. There are a total of 70 fighters over four divisions. You can level up characters as you play. This unlocks additional move sets. The game also features live events, leaderboards, and more. It’s an EA game. That means it’s full of annoying in-app purchases. However, the mechanics are fairly solid. You’ll spend a lot of time grinding. This one is a little old, but EA apparently still releases updates for it and it’s one of the few big wrestling games.

Emulators

Price: Free / Varies

A lot of the great wrestling games of our time came out on older consoles. The Wrestlemania 2000 and No Mercy for the Nintendo 64 along with the Smackdown series on PlayStation were surprisingly fun and deep considering how old they are. Even the SNES had some decent arcade wrestling titles. You can relive those with emulators. Unfortunately, there aren’t emulators for modern consoles, but from about the PlayStation and N64 era on back, you have plenty of options. We have ePSXe linked at the button for PlayStation fans, but you can check out our best emulators for Android list if you want to explore other consoles too.


MMA Fighting Clash

Price: Free to play

MMA Fighting Clash is one of the generic wrestling games. It features a similar style to the official UFC game. However, it doesn’t quite have the same level of polish. The game features multiplayer, various weight classes, over 60 characters, and more. You can also customize the characters with over 100 different moves. The mechanics are fairly self explanatory. You tap various buttons to make the fighters do various moves. It’s closer to an actual wrestling game than you’d normally find. The reviews are fairly positive as well. However, make no mistake, the game definitely still needs polish. It’s a free download so it won’t cost you anything to try it.

The Muscle Hustle

Price: Free to play

The Muscle Hustle is a character collector game with a wrestling theme. Players collect, train, and level up hundreds of wrestlers. Each one has unique stats and abilities. The game play is actually kind of funky. It has a pinball or billiards style where wrestlers are depicted in a ring as circles. They bounce off of each other until one wins. You toss them in and they bounce around. It’s a decently deep game with a lot of content, even if there is no actual wrestling. There are some homages to real wrestlers, but no actual wrestlers.


Real Wrestling 3D

Price: Free to play

Real Wrestling 3D goes for the more authentic wrestling experience. Players get a button controller on screen and a decent camera angle while they grapple, perform moves and strikes, and try to win the match. The game features over 140 fictional wrestlers along with a couple of game types. We particularly liked the cage match mode. The graphics are a little bland, but you don’t play this one for the looks, you play it for the mechanics and this one has reasonably good mechanics for the genre.

Rowdy Wrestling

Price: Free

Rowdy Wrestling is a simple arcade wrestling game. It features easy controls, plenty of violence, and 2D, retro style graphics. It’s basically a massive battle royale. You beat up on opponents and then knock them out of the ring. The game also features 55 playable characters as well as three game modes. There are some occasionally annoying advertisements, but it’s a little difficult to complain too much when the game itself is completely free. We would have liked a premium version to remove those ads, though.


Wrestling Empire

Price: Free / $3.99

Wrestling Empire is a decent little wrestling game. The graphics, movement, and feel are very similar to early 2000’s wrestling games on the Nintendo 64. The game features ten different rosters and 350 opponents in total. There is also a campaign mode with decisions to make and other stuff. The pro version also lets you customize characters. It’s by the same developers as Wrestling Revolution 3D and, to be honest, we think this one is the better title overall. All of the wrestlers are fake so you’ll have to customize the roster to add real ones you might like.


Wrestling Revolution 3D

Price: Free / $4.99

There are two games in the Wrestling Revolution franchise. Both of them are surprisingly popular mobile wrestling games. The newest in the series is Wrestling Revolution 3D. This one has two game modes. A booking mode is essentially the creative mode. You can do pretty much whatever you want. The fight mode puts you in the ring to duke it out. It features the usual set of strikes, grapples, taunts, pins, etc. The game even has gamepad support. Unlike many, it’s a pay-once game for $4.99 as an in-app purchase. It looks, feels, and plays like those old wrestling games on the Nintendo 64. It’s not bad.


WWE games

Price: Free to play

There are a variety of WWE games on mobile with wrestling themes. However, none of them are pure wrestling games. WWE SuperCard, for instance, is a card collecting game with a wrestling theme. You get the idea. These games have wrestling graphics and animations, but not the same level of wrestling mechanics as something like Wrestling Revolution. Still, it’s a viable option in the space if you just want a wrestling-themed arcade game to kill a few minutes. We have WWE Mayhem linked at the button below.
