Game description: Delve deep into the heart of Small Town America, USA, with Backyard Wrestling 2. Backyard Wrestling Inc. has put a million-dollar cash prize on the line for the wrestler who can win the unified BYW championship. Defeating the most hardcore backyard wrestlers is not enough, however, as the lure of "easy money" has attracted the attention of professional wrestlers as well. With new submission holds, body damage, and defensive moves, you must prove you have what it takes to destroy every obstacle in your path.
The game was greatly improved over its predecessor, including a more in depth create-a-wrestler mode. The game also included a switch for turning the game's blood effects on and off in contrast to the original game's lack of said switch.
