Wrestling Names

I grew up in the 80s when wrestling was big. I think then the organization was called WWF (now the "WWE").  My brother grew up subscribing to the magazines and going to several matches with my dad. I remember Hulk Hogan, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Junkyard Dog, Miss Elizabeth who married Macho Man Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, and well you get the picture.  The list could go on and on.

My dad and my brother wrestled around the house and gave themselves their own wrestling names. My brother was "The Flash" and my dad was "Dozer" as in bulldozer. I would try to join the fray. My name was Madame Moolah after the Fabulous Moolah.  I was a little disappointed because I didn't think she was as glamorous or as young as Miss Elizabeth. But the name stuck.

Now that my son is old enough to wrestle with his Lolo he was given his own wrestling name. At first it was "Headphones" but now he is "Anklyosaurous."  Bug has joined the game and is "ipod!" Hubby is "The Attorney General" and I am now "Mama Moolah."

What is your wrestling name?


  1. Nice choice with Ankylosaurus. That's a serious looking dinosaur! Way more bad ass than headphones. Love the rest of your names!

    My kids don't wrestle. Surprise, surprise, right? And they are constantly pretending that they have different names. Such little girls! Yesterday Jillian was "Lucy", Cassie was "William" and they told me I was "Rosey", which is an improvement bc usually one of them gets the title "Mommy" and they tell me my name is "Step mother"!
