Welcome to Seven Things, a weekly list that consists of very eclectic topics.
This week we are doing things a little differently to celebrate the release of WWE 2K14. Instead of one person writing the list, each wrestler will be chosen by a site member or friend of the site.
With the world of video games expanding beyond belief as each year progresses, we’ve reached a point where many wrestlers are just more entertaining in video game form than they are on television. We try to pinpoint the best seven.
Before we hit the list, we have info on a free giveaway!

Now for the list, here are the 7 Wrestlers Better In Video Games Than Real Life.
Selected by the regular Seven Things writer @typicalROHfan.
My favorite wrestling video game is easily WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game and my favorite character was Doink. The roster for this game released in the mid-90’s were future Hall of Famers such as Shawn Michaels, Undertaker, Bret Hart, Razor Ramon, Yokozuna, Bam Bam Bigelow, Lex Luger and then…….. Doink. Clearly overachieving with a gimmick cute for video games, Doink was the dude to play as.
The main sell is Doink’s powerful skill of clown tricks such as shocking his opponents with a joy buzzer or use inflated novelty hands to smack the competition. I’ll take those gimmicks over today’s improved graphics and over the top technology all day. Imagine if Doink were able to use those weapons on the show? Instant WWF champion material.
