We all grew up with fairy tales. You know, the nice stories with fairies, nice dwarves, heroes and heroines. Little did we know that we were being fed the filtered version of these stories.

There’s no denying that, at it’s core, two guys playing a character pretending to hate each other, is just a really silly idea. Here we bring you the silliest, most surreal, wrestling characters that we’ve had the pleasure of watching.
Unfortunately, no one can stay a vibrant twenty-something forever. Unless you've got a pass to Neverland ranch eventually you're forced to grow up. As the days pass us by, we're treated to some not-so-subtle reminders, that slowly but surely, we're getting pretty damn old.
Everyone wants to have at least one superpower. Anyone who tells you that they don't is either lying or doesn't like fun. For ages, mankind has marveled over the possibilities of saving the world with their superhuman abilities. But if you were able to ignore that whole "with great power comes great responsibility" thing, and still had superpowers, wouldn't your day-to-day life kind of rule?
What you order at a bar, whether fair or not, can be the first thing someone judges your character on. With that said, who hasn’t made fun of one of their buddies for ordering a piña colada?
