    Default Wuxia characters and modern day career options

    If characters from Jin Yong, Gu Long and co. were brought into today's society, what jobs will suit them best?

    I start -
    ZWJ - healer of some sort, probably a gynaecologist or podiatrist
    H7G - professional cuisine judge
    Z3F - philosopher/scientist of some sort that locks himself up for 10years then come up with a noble winning idea
    Zuo Bu Fan sword god - President of the World
    Lin XinEr (?) - oldest profession of course

    I think GJ will be a good cop. But he'll need a partner that's more street smart like HR as his partner.

    Yeah, you don't need to know how to wrestle to be in the WWE. Actually, they prefer people who don't know how to wrestle.

    I'm actually referring to the size of Xiao Feng. XF is also stronger than GJ strength-wise.

    I don't know that for sure, GJ's toughness was a deciding factor in his first clash with Yang Kang.
