Watching the WWE more recently, it seems creative is extremely uncreative when it comes to nicknames. I mean, they just seem so basic nowadays, nicknames used to be directly associated with gimmicks and were far more memorable. For example some of my favourite nicknames are

HHH's 'The Game' and 'The cerebral assasin' these two nicknames suited his character completely as Triple H is known for being calculating in the ring, exploiting an opponents weakness and using it to his advantage. Another good one is of course Bret Hart's 'Best there is...' since it was all about how in the ring Bret was legitimately a great wrestler.

Nowadays we have 'The Showoff'' Dolph Ziggler for example, which to me seems to basic and lazy. 'Hey this guy is supposed to be an arrogant show off, so let's call him 'The Show off''. The only recent one that I actually remember is John Morisson's 'Shaman of sexy' and 'Prince of parqour' because at least there's some alliteration and it works with his gimmick.

So what are your best and worst nicknames? And why?

"The Devil's Favourite Demon". What the hell is that?

Also, why did they change Kane from "The Big Red Machine" to "The Big Red Monster"? The former is much better.

I think when he took off his mask he was supposed to be more of a monster.

"The All American American" is absolutely terrible as is "The Showoff".

Best nicknames are: The Crippler, The Legend Killer, The Deadman, The Big Red Machine, Rabid Wolverine, The Whole Fucking Show and The Samoan Bulldozer.

Benoit was the Rabit Wolverine, not Rapid.

I always hated "The Phenom". Don't know why.

"The All-American American" is the worst in recent years.

Not sure if you're being serious? :confused:

But he was the Rabid Wolverine.. Not a rabit or rapid. Not even sure what a rabit is.
