Re: Five NXT Stars get New Names

Rick Bugez sounds like a 80s family adventure hero, I approve. Bugehagen was just as good if not better though

Cameron "Everybody Has a Baby Cousin With this Name" Grimes Bland. You can barely even chant Cameron. Trevor Grimes woulda been do. Step down

Ridge Holland is committed to providing the highest quality life insurance in the North Midwest region
Luke Menzies had an energetic, youthful feel to it. This name is a step down

Arturo Ruas could be worse. Still has a martial arts ring to it but it's nowhere near as fun to say as JAW OOOD. Arturo Jauode was the way to go. Step down


Mama Mia Jessie Kamea - the only clear improvement here

Re: Five NXT Stars get New Names

Jessi Kamea and Arturo Ruas got it worst...
In the case of the name Arturo, I'd just use its diminutive name Arturito to some dwarf wrestler. To play the classic Arturito/R2D2 alike pronunciation, duh.


Top 10 for 2019: Becky Lynch, Nikki Cross, Ronda Rousey, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Toni Storm, Carmella, Taynara Conti, Jessamyn Duke, Bayley.
Seth Rollins
Elias
Jeff Hardy
Shinsuke Nakamura
Adam Cole
EC3
Aiden English
Roderick Strong
AJ Styles
Cesaro

Please please DELETE Grimes. Just call him, CAMERON.

Looks like Stricklands name has been changed to Isaiah Scott.

Re: Five NXT Stars get New Names

On an aside - I wonder if WWE is going back to gimmicking names to be able to trademark them because of AEW.

Re: Five NXT Stars get New Names

Rik Bugez sounds like the name of the third rapper with none of his own hits in a late 90's/early 2000s P. Diddy or Nelly song.

I think it's more to do with wrestlers not wanting WWE to copyright their original names so that they can go back to the independents (or AEW) and go back to their original names if it doesn't work out.
