    How Well Do You Know TKO?

    Thought this would be a cool idea for an article. I put together 15 questions about TKO history, some are as recent as last season, some will be almost impossible for guys that weren't around since the very beginning. And don't cheat, you're a loser if you cheat.

    I also ask that when you answer, put your answers in all white, so it doesn't ruin the quiz for everyone else.

    This was one of my favorite ideas for an article so far. Of course you could just look these up, but I tried it without. Completely guessed on a few.

    Hm, nice. Good idea, and it must've required research, because I didn't know a lot of these (granted, I haven't been around all that long, but still), 9 points.

    FYI, the only thing I edited was the format. I forgot to change the line spacing at first. I didn't look any of these up, and did a shitload of flat out guessing. Great article idea.
