“We here at WWE are absolutely thrilled to work with a company like Ancestry.com,” said Stephanie McMahon. “They are a well-established and respectable company.

The WWE Universe loves their wrestling history and we feel that with Ancestry.com’s help, we can create the most extensive and detailed wrestling-based family tree ever!”

From the McMahon family to the Von Erichs, fans will now be able to trace just who is related to who in the world of wrestling.

Now you’ll be able to get all the facts straight.
“All the families will be there,” said McMahon. “The Rhodes’ family, the Ortons, the Harts, the Rougeaus, the Fatus, the Briscos, the Garvins, the Hardys, the Vachons, the Guerreros, the Hearst Helmsleys, the Undertaker-Kane-Bearers, the Armstrongs, the Johnsons, the Andersons, the Colons, the Gagnes, the DiBiases, the Wyatts, the Snukas, the Flairs, the Anoa’is, the Hogans, the Lawlers, the Hennings, the Giant Gonzales’s, and so many more.”
WWE plans to release two versions of the website, a “Kayfabe” version and a “Shoot” version. While the Kayfabe version will be free to all users, the Shoot version will be $9.99 per month. Beta-tester and level 37 Spellcaster, Gunter Hotnog, said, “Oh, man, this website is totes sweet! It’s uber helpful in solving arguments. One time, I almost said that Rosey was Afa’s son instead of Sika. Boy, that would have been embarrassing!” said Hotnog as he wiped the Cheez-It crumbs from his vintage John Cena “Chaingang” football jersey.
Ancestry.com President and CEO Tim Sullivan said of the partnership, “Wrestling fans will buy just about anything. Seriously, take a look at shop.wwe.com. They’re selling a cut-out of CM Punk’s face with a string attached to the back and call it a mask! Genius! We here at Ancestry.com love making money and wrestling fans love spending it. It’s win-win!”
Several storylines have already been created in conjunction with the website including the revelation that Zack Ryder is the long-lost nephew of the Yeti and JTG is the direct descendant of a long line of racist gimmicks.
