Infographic of the day: the wacky themes in wrestler names

Excerpt from Fast Company Magazine online article,

So why wrestling? “It’s in the sweet spot of things that we love and things that have a lot of extant data,” says Mulligan, who with Gibson, is slowly colonizing the cultural detritus of the Internet. Since launching Pop Chart Lab last year, they’ve classified pop haircuts, provided a periodic table of heavy metal, and detailed the very many varieties of beer.

The “titanic taxonomy” is not comprehensive, however: Mulligan said they had trouble with contemporary wrestlers who’ve begun using real-sounding names. Instead, it’s more of a nostalgic trip through the prime of pumped-up pro wrestling--RIP Andre the Giant, Macho Man Randy Savage, Killer Kowalski, Bam Bam Bigelow, and so many others--that was even weirder than you remember.

Blame it on the headache or the drugs Rose. Either one. I haven't fished in a month and a half. Maybe I'll be up for Coho.
