Am I the only one who never realized "Wheel of Fortune" is "hangman?"

A few months ago Paul Pierce sent out a tweet saying "Look out for me tonight on Wheel of Fortune."  He didn't actually play or anything, just made a brief pre-recorded cameo as part of the show's "NBA week."  But when I saw his tweet on that February afternoon the first thing I did was set my DVR to record Wheel that evening.  And it was at that moment that I made this startling discovery:

Wheel of Fortune is just a fancy version of "hangman."  It's seems so obvious, yet somehow it'd never occurred to me before.  Is this common knowledge?  If not, it definitely should be.  I felt pretty stupid for not having come to this conclusion on my own at some point in the last 35 years.  And while I tend to be very critical of the show descriptions on the cable guide, on this day I was extremely impressed.
