I know Beauty Rhodes of course is based on Dusty Rhodes, and Neptuneman is based on Hogan. But is there a guide to who's who?

 

just curious if anybody's ever compiled a guide.

Geromino always reminded me of The Ultimate Warrior. I also think the Sheik is based off of... well The Iron Sheik. Can't think of any others. Kind of crazy how it's Neptune Man who's supposed to be based off of Hulk Hogan and not the character that actually looks like Hogan.

I think there's another these or two about this on here but here's from a tumbler I found on Google "Ramenman with Giant Baba. BuffaloMan with Bruiser Brody. Robin Mask with Billy Robinson. And my favorite, TerryMan with TERRY FUNK!"

Well, if you saw Terryman's fight with Abdullah (Abdullah the Butcher) you'd know it fits.

Dynamite Piper is a parody of Roddy Piper, although his sculpt does not much look like him

Ultimate Warrior wasn't an active wrestler when Geronimo was introduced. Also, more than likely, Sheik wasn't based on the Iron Sheik, but rather the original Sheik (Ed Farhat)

 

 

We know Kevin Mask is based on Kevin Nash. 

 

Definitely in name, at least. Also, the villainous group dMp is based on the nWo
