Wrestler names you didn't spell or pronounce correctly at first

I'm not sure how common they are but I'm hoping someone contributes something funny.

These are mine off the top of my head (leaving out the actual spelling to see if you can recognize who I meant):

Las Variquas
Rowdy Rowdy Piper
Davian Demento
Bob Backland
John Thena (as in the Spanish pronounciation of 'C')

Re: Wrestler names you didn't spell or pronounce correctly at first

Isaac Yan Kum (Lawler to blame for that one)
Avotar (I think WWF Magazine misspelled it and I'd never heard that word before)

Until a couple of days ago I'd gone back and forth on whether King Mo and Sir Mo were the same person or not. I think King Mabel and Sir Mo had me confused.

Chris Benoit. Saw him for the first time on a video game. Ben-olt. What's funny is there were some news reporters during the UNCONFIRMED TRIPLE HOMICIDE that pronounced it wrong as well.

Finn Bal-ur? Finn Ba-lure? Finn Ba-lor?
