Wrestlers on The Simpsons

The Simpsons has been around so long that they’ve featured enough wrestlers for you to make a whole roster out of for your Universe Mode in the WWE 2K games. Or to be more relevant with the times, create them on Fire Pro Wrestling World. Here’s a list of them.

Wrestling-Themed TV Shows

With the new Netflix show GLOW already receiving GLOWing rave reviews, it’s safe to assume that pro wrestling fans have finally gotten a live-action TV show about wrestling that gets it right, and to top it off, actually holds some kind of artistic merit.

Or the fact that the actor who played The Mountain, Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson, showed up at an NXT show and… well, that’s all that happened.

But what about those crazy wrestling gimmicks that would actually fit within the Games of Thrones universe? Spoiler alert: A lot of these guys would fit in perfectly with the wildlings.
