Hailing From...

So, I miss my connection in Denver, and I've got two hours to kill in Denver International Airport. Come to realize, I think so much about pro wrestling, when I hear the name of a city, I think of pro wrestlers that are from there. I thought about it for a while and I was amazed at how many I could think of.
As a result, I threw together this little feature. This is a good test to see if you watch too much pro wrestling. Given the following cities, see if you can name the most famous pro wrestler(s) from there. My disclaimer is that there may be another wrestler from there I don't know of and you may not agree with my easy/moderate/difficult ratings. Also, one or two might be wrong but I think these are all correct. Some of these wrestlers are retired or deceased.
