Old School Winners!

I was very pleased by our reader response, we had 10 great entries. However, the 1st place, grand poobah, head cheese winner is…Chris from The Yemen Deli! He got all 81 points possible! We are also going to award 2nd place prizes to the two submissions that got 79 out of 81 points, The Chief from Hugging Harold Reynolds and JC from…his house! (I do not know if JC has a blog, but if he emails me I’ll gladly link to it). Congratulations to you all and thank you to everyone who took the time to submit an answer. If the 3 winners could email me to discuss their prize (ooooh, it’s a good ‘un!) that’d be great. Also, Clay and Jen get a shout-out for getting very high scores of 76 and 74, respectively.

I’m going to list the answers in case anybody is curious. Also, a quick word about scoring. Some wrestlers wrestled under several names and I gave points for any correct answers. You should not be penalized for not being able to read my mind. Case in point: I was thinking Sid Justice, but he wrestled as Sid Vicious and Psycho Sid too so both of those answers got points. I really wanted to do bonus points for people who included nicknames (i.e., “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka, rather than just Jimmy Snuka) but since I made no mention of that in the rules I couldn’t do it. And finally, some people only got tripped up because they forgot that if there were multiple people in a picture, they could get points for each person AND the tag team name. But that was explicitly stated, so… With no further ado, here are the answers

Macho Man/Sensational Sherri
Mr. Perfect
The Ultimate Warrior
