About This Quiz

Professional wrestling can trace its roots back a long, long way. Over 100 years ago it was a novelty act you'd see in small venues here and there at strongman competitions and the like. The "fake" aspect of it really held it back however and the public didn't have a ton of interest, especially as two World Wars came and went. 

However, the sport persevered, and local organizations popped up across America. Wrestlers could travel from one region to another and take on new personas, garner new fans and make money for a while before moving on to a new part of the country.  And then a man named Vince McMahon changed all that.

Vince McMahon Jr. took over the World Wrestling Federation from his father and grew wrestling from local, isolated franchises into the powerhouse that the WWE currently is. He unified it across the country, making it one big show that was able to produce big stars whose fame wasn't limited to whatever county they were performing in.  

They could go national, even international. The WWF was born and it exploded with some of the biggest personalities ever seen on TV into households across the country each and every week.  With all those huge personalities, no doubt some of them match you better than others. There's a wrestler for everyone out there, and they started in the '80s. Want to know which '80s star is your spirit animal? Take the quiz and see!
