Best N64 wrestling game: 'WWF No Mercy' or 'WCW/nWo Revenge'?

Wrestling video games have evolved from their humble 8-bit beginnings on the NES to the ring-shaking iterations of today. But before the PS4 and Xbox One, two Nintendo 64 games changed the digital landscape and are still considered the best games of the genre. "WWF No Mercy" is still a favorite of many wrestling fans for its great gameplay and improved championship mode. However, "WCW/nWo Revenge" had a deep roster and revolutionary grappling system. Which one's your favorite? 🤼

Here is a review of "WWF No Mercy" by Blake Norton on IGN:

No Mercy is a terrific game from top to bottom. The game mechanics are sound, the animation is fantastic, the characters are very responsive and there's a tremendous amount of game modes. If you're a wrestling fan, or even just a fan of fighting-style games, this should definitely be on your list.

Here is a review of "WCW/nWo Revenge" by Matt Casamassina on IGN:

I like WCW/NWO: Revenge a lot. It's a much more complete "update" to the original. In all honesty, it feels more like an upgrade patch to World Tour than it does a completely new game. That's because the gameplay mechanics remain nearly identical, whereas most of the enhancements lie in graphics and options departments. That's not necessarily a bad thing. My suggestion: if you own World Tour then sell it. Take the money you get for it and put it towards Revenge. It's a much more complete game with tons of style and ambience. Once again, the four-player mode is addictive and reason enough to buy the game, especially if you're a big wrestling fan.
