WWEsteros: Who Will Rule the Iron Throne?

WWEsteros: Who Will Rule the Iron Throne?

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.
