Zeb (Ann) Coulter?

Is it a coincidence that this right wing fringe Zeb Coulter shares the last name with real life Right Wing syndicate Ann Coulter?

Is WWE trying to draw from Ann's legit heat, or is Coulter Zeb's real name?

I mean I don't know who this guy is, is his last name really Coulter?

Just a funny coincidence.

PS: I think he totally owns by the way

PPS: I think WWE was trying to make them seem like heels, but WWE is a very "southern" demographic lol.

Just sayin

Re: Zeb (Ann) Coulter?

. Beautiful heel to destroy?

WWE is filled with 'Good Ol' Boys' in power positions. It is just how it is, and I will keep calling WWE, Pro Wrestling in USA, as well as some of it's fans out on this because it is bollox. I do notice an apparent effort being made to mitigate this somewhat, but time will ultimately tell.

Re: Zeb (Ann) Coulter?

It's not a coincidence, it's very deliberate, and no parent with any self respect would name their kid Zeb Coulter, so you know it's a fake name. It's Dutch Mantel (not his real name either), who's a pretty well known old school wrestler. The Coulter is from Ann Coulter, and the Zeb is from his gimmick way back in the day, Uncle Zebekiah, manager of Jacob and Eli Blu, an gimmicky 90's tag team, better known in WCW as the Harris brothers.

As for what they're drawing off of, the inspiration is from RJ Brewer, a wrestler from Lucha Libre USA who's doing an anti-immigration gimmick.

Episode 86 - San Andreas & Tomorrowland

We look at two movies this week! TWO! Also touching on a new Star Wars character, Suicide Squad, more Transformers, Wonder Woman, Deadpool and other things.

Re: Zeb (Ann) Coulter?

I assume it's supposed to be a heel gimmick, but don't think it will work considering the big divide between Americans right now on illegal immigration. Both Vince and Linda are big Republicans, but I will assume that most of the writers are much more liberal, so I think there will be a disconnect somewhere in the chain, resulting in this gimmick being a failure. Maybe I'm way off base here, but it left me confused as to where this is going.

Re: Zeb (Ann) Coulter?

This could actually turn out epically bad lol.

Depending upon how controversial Zeb gets, there could be people in the crowd cheering/booing either way and hereby starting some type of hostile reaction.

Could be fun.

Should've named him Zeb Phelps and done a Westboro Baptist Church gimmick.

Holy crap! I never thought about a Westboro Church gimmick. That could be so over and get great heat! Would never happen in this era of WWE though. It may be too extreme for TNA even. If only ECW were still around. I don't watch enough ROH to know if it would work there or not.

Ann Coulter has caused numerous people to commit suicide. Fact.

This should be good.
