Re: Five NXT Stars get New Names

Bugez could be mispronounced Bu-gez rather than Boogs.

At least this means these folks are likely heading to television.

Arturo Ruas is pretty badass. Surprised tag partner Cesar Bononi seemingly keeps his real name.

Jessi Kamea, unless I'm missing a pop culture reference, is probably just a family name. Might as just well kept Elaban, or just go by "Jessi".

Trevor Lee's "Cameron" comes from Cameron NC, Grimes could come from Walking Dead's Rick Grimes.

Don't know what Ridge Holland is reference to, probably Brit footballers or something. "Menzies" was going to have trouble Stateside.

Re: Five NXT Stars get New Names

Arturo Ruas is a clear improvement, sounds like an 70’s boxing world champ

Jessi Kamea is probably an improvement, won't know for sure until I hear it

Ridge Holland isn't better than Luke Menzies but it might grow on me, doubt we'll ever get to hear it on TV before he's released though

Cameron Grimes is already in our collective conscious, but I'm still going to be expecting dude to wear a cowboy hat and an eye patch

Eric Bugenhagen was not a wrestler name, and yet it fit that weird motherfucker so well, Rik Bugez is certified trash

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

I'm sure some people will blow a gasket over this, but they are names. who cares.
