About This Quiz

Professional wrestling has been around for nearly a century. Its roots are in traditional Greco-Roman wrestling, but also in circus strongmen, sideshow geeks, and comic book superheroes. Pro wrestling as we think of it today really took shape under the auspices of what is now called the WWE. In the 1970s and 1980s, the WWE (then the WWF) consolidated the regional wrestling shows under its umbrella, and in the early 2000s, stomped out its few remaining competitors, including the absorption of Ted Turner's WCW. In that time, the art of character creation flourished. Wrestling characters are flamboyant, larger than life and reflected in their ring names.

Some of the most memorable wrestlers are remembered because of their great ring names. Sergeant Slaughter was cool enough to get his own G.I. Joe figurine. Hulk Hogan's identity was so strong that he had to change his name to Hollywood Hulk Hogan when he joined the heels in the New World Order (NWO). Maven's name spoke to his religious and ethnic identity. Gold Dust's name was the summation of his entire aesthetic.

Let's get into the ring. We'll put you through some basic tests that will determine the kind of wrestler you'd be and what your identity would be. From that we will determine your ring name, so you can go learn some "rastling" and try out for Vince McMahon. Just remember, once you're in the NWO, brother, you're in the NWO 4 life!
