Here are the answers to last week's quiz. How did you do?

There hasn't been an astronaut wrestler yet in WWE, but never say never.

Hector Guerrero, uncle of Eddie and Chavo Guerrero, appeared as a turkey named Gobbledy Gooker in the 1990 Survivor Series.

Carl Ouellet assumed a pirate gimmick as Jean-Pierre LaFitte. Much later, Paul Burchill capitalized on the popularity of "The Pirates of the Caribbean" movies as an Englishman who believed himself to be descended from pirates who amazingly dressed just like Johnny Depp.

7. Mountie - True

The Mountie was forced to relinquish this gimmick at the behest of the Canadian government because they were worried it would undermine actual mounties' authority.

The WWE thought it would be a great idea to introduce a throwback wrestler, and then came up with Eugene, a retarded man who imitated the moves of classic wrestlers.
