About This Quiz

Do you know a suplex from a figure four leg lock? Can you tell the Road Warriors from the Sheepherders? If those questions are as easy as a leap off the top rope for you, then you need to take this quiz!

In the '80s and '90s, the World Wrestling Federation (now the WWE) ruled the roost when it came to filmed sessions of brawny men (and sometimes women) beating on each other with fists, elbows, knees, heads, chairs, hapless referees, and (occasionally) musical instruments and blocks of wood.

To be a superstar wrestler you first had to have a persona. Nobody cared about your love for puppies, your stamp collection, your prize-winning burger recipe, or your talent on the tenor saxophone. They wanted to see you dressed as an evil clown smashing brick-laden pies into your opponents' faces.

After you had a persona, you had to come up with a signature move. It's all well and good if you bounce your opponent off the rope and then jump in the air and knock him silly with your buttocks, but if you call that the "Evil Clown Butt Pie," you'll sell out arenas across the country!
