How Do They Think Up Wrestler Names?
I got to wondering (I was bored, don't shoot me) how do they think up wrestler's names, specifically RyBack.
I imagined it might go something like this:
Creative 1 - "We need a name for this new wrestler."
Creative 2 - "Well, he likes to eat, let's make it food related."
Creative 1 - "Food? he needs to be tough, the guy is built like Goldberg. A food name would see him being laughed at."
Creative 2 - "Built tough? Like a Rhino?"
Creative 1 - "We can't use Rhino, been done."
Creative 2 - "I was thinking something like Rhino Beef."
Creative 1 - "It's funny you mention beef, I heard he got a plate full of beef sandwiches and only ate the beef. He took the bread back because he doesn't like Rye bread."
Creative 2 - "That's it!"
Creative 1 - "What?"
Creative 2 - "What you just said."
Creative 1 - "He took the Rye bread back?"
Creative 2 - "Yeah but drop the bread and we can't use the e, it's too foody."
Creative 1 - "Ry Back?"
Creative 2 - "Yeah, but make it one word, RyBack."
