    What do you do when a team of evil, alien wrestlers threaten the Earth?

    Organise a team of GOOD super-powered wrestlers, of course!

    Kinniku Mantaro, the son of legendary wrestler Kinnikuman, rockets to Earth and finds an evil wrestling gang called the DMP tearing the place apart. The punks on the DMP are the weirdest, nastiest, and most outlandishly powerful musclebound freaks the galaxy has ever known.

    Mantaro's only hope: form a team that's even wilder. Lazy and cowardly, Mantaro sure doesn't look like the universe's last great hope, but when something upsets him - like, say, EVIL - he busts out in muscles just like his old man! The only possible result is earthshaking, body-slamming, ultimate-powered action that sends our entire planet sailing over the top rope!
