Default Slate Randall......

Now I know they don't let guys keep their indy names but really? You take an epic name like Shaun Ricker and turn it into Slate Randall? Who are the fucking idiots coming up with these awful names?

I get that a lot of the NXT names are goofy even with the talent having some input, but you felt Shaun Ricker was an epic name?

Apparently WWE have this stupid rule where none of their wrestlers are allowed to share a first name which is probably the main reason why many of these new ring names are so bad. It was never a problem in the past when they had guys like JBL and John Cena or Chris Benoit and Chris Jericho on the same roster so I don't know why it matters now.

Yes sir. It's a big time sounding name that I can foresee Headlining WrestleMania's. It sounds like Money.

I think its the WWE not wanting to deal with indy wrestlers not wanting to give full rights to their names, so they just give them new names.

I really hope Ricker gets to use his real name when he's featured on TV. 'Slate Randall' is awful.

I gotta second this, sure Slate Randall is a shitty name but Shaun Ricker is an average name...I'm sure OP thinks otherwise because they like him, but if Ricker didn't exist and Seth Rollins had picked Shaun Ricker as his ring name, I doubt OP would be calling it "epic"...in case anyone hasn't caught on yet, it's the performer that makes the name, and not vice versa.

I actually like the first name, since it reminds me of Deathstroke's first name (Slade). To be honest, Slade Ricker sound better than his original name and the Randall (lolOrtonreference) variation.
