Wrestling Catchphrases: Lost In Translation

22 Feb

translationmainBelieve it or not, Podswoggle is an internationally influenced website and podcast....with entertainment. Even though the United States remains the most frequent country of origin among our visitors, we still receive hits from across the globe. From Canada, the United Kingdom and Japan to Australia, India and France, Podswoggle hasn't been banned in any country (yet).  We've even had a visitor for the Island of Guam (Hi, Guamanian Porn Bot!)

Your Job: To figure out what wrestler said what catchphrase.  Also, make sure to click on the row with the catchphrase you are answering.

With all that said, Bonne Chance, In bocca al lupo, Veel geluk and, of course, Good Luck!
