[3] According to main coder Fabrizio Farenga, TOP WRESTLING was inspired by popular 1980s/90s sports show WWF Superstars of Wrestling:

'The game concept was born when the WWF Wrestling TV show was at the zenith in Italy. Raffele Valensise told me we should create a "Blockbuster", so we dropped a simple platform game called "Alien Hunter" and started with the development of this classic beat-em-up.

We taken a lot of ideas from the TV Show, where the anchormen Dan Peterson (aka Ted Hutchinson in our game) excited the crowd and was very ironic.

Most of the characters resemble famous wrestler of late '80s and some other famous people (like a "young" Saddam Hussein).

The game was published by Genias and didn't sold very well, probably because we had poor marketing but, hey, it was my first game!!!
