So I decided to make a game for the Greatest Wrestler Ever to see if you can guess all the people ranked, if your only given the style of wrestling they are expert in and by what genre(s)/era(s) of wrestling they are most associated with.
I used cagematch as help for the wrestling styles, but some of them could be wrong as I wasn't familiar with a lot of the guys. If you see anything that needs changed please let me know and I can edit it. If someone has mixed that means they do a little bit of everything. I wanted to put shoot style for the shoot style guys, but since I'm not big into Japanese wrestling I wasn't sure who were the normal puro pro wrestlers were and who the puro shoot style guys were. If someone wants to let me know which wrestlers were shoot style I will gladly go back and change it.
For the genre(s)/era(s) most associated with I broke it down into categories:
- Puro (Japanese men)
- Puro Gaijin (Americans that made most of their career in Japan)
- Lucha (Mexican guys)
- Joshi (Japanese Women)
- World of Sport
- UK (Guys who had a career in UK but after World of Sport Era)
- Territories (Guys who were around when there were tons of territories and went from one to the other)
- US Indy (Guys who have mad a huge name in the indys specifically from 2002-Now this includes ROH & TNA)
- Puerto Rico (I guess this could have been lumped in with the territories, but for some reason I decided to make it it's own category)
- 90s USA Big 3 (Guys who were famous in the 90s during the Monday Night Wars & ECW guys)
- Black and White Era
In addition to 90s USA Big 3 I also have the eras of WWE separated
- WWWF Era (Anything pre 1984)
- Golden Era aka The Hogan Era (1984 - 1992)
- New Generation Era (1993-1996)
- Attitude Era (1997-2001)
- Ruthless Aggression Era (2002-2008)
- PG Era ( 2009-Now)
Like I said above in the wrestling style section I want to add a puro shoot style category, but don't know which wrestlers qualify for it.
Here is the link to part 1. I will post part 2 when the list is finished as I'm updating it everyday as Grimmas reveals the rankings. In the game you don't have to write out the whole name just the last name.
I accept all feedback and any ways to make the quiz better.
