Game description: Backyard Wrestling allows you to step out of the wrestling genre and into a new world of open-ended gameplay. Punish your opponent in interactive environments using weapons such as thumbtacks, barbed wire, lightbulbs, stop signs, baseball bats, tables, fire, and other objects. Prepare to take incredible risks and endure cuts, bruises, and gashes, as you leap from breathtaking heights to beat your opponent and be crowned The King of Hardcore.
The gameplay could be better described as a cross between classic pro wrestling video games and 3D platform fighting like Power Stone. The goal of backyard wrestling is largely to use the environment to defeat an opponent. The featured wrestlers come mostly from rap group Insane Clown Posse's own wrestling federation, the Juggalo Championship Wrestling. These include Mad Man Pondo, Sabu, Tom Dub, Rude Boy, Josh Prohibition, MDogg20 and the clowns themselves, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope.
