Fiction is full of larger-than-life characters and worlds beyond imagination, but one could also argue that professional wrestling is stacked with incredible personalities who perform amazing feats. Throughout the years, the WWE has amassed a variety of characters, some of whom remind us of another show with a plethora of characters: HBO's Game of Thrones. WWE is full of likable heroes and detestable heels, not unlike Game of Thrones. There are points in GOT similar to the WWE where you find yourself rooting for your favorite character to win a fight, like when Arya Stark sparred with Brienne of Tarth, or when Syrio Forel took on the Kingsguard with a wooden sword. Keep reading to see which Game of Thrones characters we decided to transform into wrestlers in this Game of Thrones WWE mash-up!
Keep in mind that Game of Thrones has an enormous cast of characters, so we can't turn every single one of them into a WWE wrestler. We took our inspiration for their wrestler profiles from the actors as well as the characters they played, nicknames the characters had and any special weapons or abilities they had. (Gotta hand it to George R.R. Martin: Oathkeeper is an excellent name for both a sword and a WWE finishing move!) Without further ado, we introduce you to tonight's lineup.

Arya Stark - A Girl With no Name
She's one tough cookie.
Brienne of Tarth - Brienne the Beauty
She'll knock you into the dust.
Cersei Lannister - The Lioness
Cersei refuses to take her crown off during matches. Some people joke that she even wears it when she sleeps.
Daenerys Targaryen - Mother of Dragons
Everyone knows when Daenerys is at a match because her dragons wait for her outside the arena.
Davos Seaworth - The Onion Knight
Davos gained his unusual title by smuggling onions and other food items to aid the besieged Storm's End.
Gregor Clegane - The Mountain
Gregor has sent many a wrestler home with a concussion.
Hodor & the 3-Eyed Raven
Jaime Lannister - Kingslayer
You don't want to take a blow from Jaime's golden hand.
Jon Snow - The White Wolf
Ghost can often be seen watching Jon's matches from a special booth.
Jorah Mormont - The Andal
Jorah's greyscale scars still cover his body, even after being cured.
Khal Drogo - The Great Khal
Drogo also has a great side hustle modeling for men's hair products.
Melisandre - The Red Witch
Don't let her appearance fool you. She's over a century old—perhaps even as old as 400!
The Night King
All fighters dread the day they are fated to step into the ring with the Night King.
Olenna Tyrell - The Queen of Thorns
Olenna is a firecracker of a lady and we all wish she could be our grandmother.
Robert Baratheon - The Usurper
Robert may seem washed up, but he's determined to eat, drink and wrestle himself to an early grave.
Samwell Tarly - Sam The Slayer
Sam is a sweetheart and we're grateful to have him as part of WWEsteros.
Sandor Clegane - The Hound
Never get between this man and his chicken.
Sansa Stark - Little Bird
We admire Sansa's resilience. She might have to change her ring name to something more menacing.
Tyrion Lannister - The Half Man
He wrestles and he knows things.
Ygritte - Kissed by Fire
Ygritte loves the outdoors, and she has her own wildlife rescue organization.
