I bought this game directly from Angelo Porazzi at the Lucca Games '06 on the wave of Peacebowl enthusiasm, a game my group likes a lot.
Wrestangel cames with 84 cards: 20 wrestler cards, 42 action cards, 20 ring cards and two cars showing different games from Angelo.
Each wrestler has a different race and is identified with five numbers: Power, Movement, Valour, Vitality and Special Action.
Players start the turn with two wrestlers each and 4 or more action card in hand. You can combine action cards with your wrestler values to move around the ring or to attack the other players, when you win a fight you have to keep the opponent on the ground for three long seconds: both players pick three cards and play them to the highest value.
This is the most interesting phase, full of tension and bluffs: you can attack to eliminate your opponent or just to fill your hand with better cards.
Rules cover the dynamics a fantasy wrestling match can offer: Attacks, Counterattacks, Jumps from the Ropes, Charges and Special Attacks like Skorpion Stings, Dread Roars, Toothed Paws Hold and more.
The game is fast and funny and if you adhere strictly to the rules and for each attack you scream your Battlecry (a different one for each wrestler) the game can be even funnier.

Rules could be better written with clearer examples, but after a few minutes you understand the flow of the game. The cards art is good as Angelo used us. A good, funny, chaotic game.
Just don't take it too seriously
