Victor Ortega (ヴィクター・オルテガ Vikutā Orutega?) is a character and the final boss from Ring of Destruction: Slam Masters II, the third and final game in the Slam Masters series of wrestling fighting games.

Ortega had previously appeared in the intro and ending of both the original Saturday Night Slam Masters and its updated sequel Muscle Bomber Duo, but was not playable until Ring of Destruction. His official nickname is the Muscle Bomber, which itself is the original Japanese name of the Slam Masters series.

Story[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

The Capcom Wrestling Association's original founder and owner who had also doubled as its first undefeated and undisputed champion, Victor Ortega's reign at the top began after he pulverized the top-ranking wrestler. Then suddenly, he mysteriously disappeared from the ring when there was no one left strong enough to give him a decent challenge and remained missing for over a year.

Shortly before the "International Blowout" began, Ortega resurfaced and agreed to The Scorpion's stipulations (which involved Ortega wagering his championship belt) in order to participate in the fight once again.

Concept[edit | edit source]

He seems to have been based on former wrestler Superstar Billy Graham. Ortega's win pose resembles one of Hulk Hogan's trademark poses (in real life, Hogan also partially based his gimmick on Graham's tactics, as the latter was both his mentor and trainer).

Other appearances[edit | edit source]

Ortega makes a cameo appearance in Ken's stage in Street Fighter Alpha 2, alongside Biff Slamkovich.

He is also mentioned in Darun Mister's backstory, as one of the wrestlers he aspires to challenge someday.[1]
