Any Superstar ring names that strike you as particularly awesome/odd/awful?
I'll hit you with a few:
John Cena- His actual name, and it works. All good action heroes are called John.
Mark Henry- His real name, and the name was famous. Why change it?
The Undertaker- Perfect fit, even though he's not the best at burying people.
Bray Wyatt- Seems to fit just fine for a backwoods hillbilly.
Kane- Sounds suitably sinister.
Jack Swagger- It works. Needs to show a little more swag, but it works.
Sheamus- It's just a first name. Like "Bob". Imagine a wrestler called "Bob".
Big E- Just makes me think of a big letter "E".
Brodus Clay- "Brodus" just sounds dorky and "Clay" is something you make pottery with. I don't get it.
Ryback- He's named after a Steven Seagal Character.
Yoshi Tatsu- Reminds me of that dinosaur thing in Mario games.
Curtis Axel- Well... it's better than "Michael McGillicutty", but not by much. Whilst his previous ring name sounded too dorky, his new one seems like it's trying too hard to be cool.
Dolph Ziggler- Kinda sounds douchy and overly flashly, but that fits the character.
The Miz- He's a Miz. What exactly is a "Miz"? He is. He is The Miz.
Drew McIntyre- "Drew" sounds like a girls name. But at least he has "Mc" in his name. If you don't have a "Mc" you aren't Scottish enough.
Daniel Bryan- Well it's a rejigging of his real name... not much to say.
Big Show- Well yes, he is big. And apparently he's a "Show". Not too bad.
Randy Orton- Do I make you randy, baby? Do I? Plain name.
Wade Barrett- Sounds like a very American name. How many Brits do you know called Wade? Not a particularly bad name per se, just unfitting (then again, maybe he isn't supposed to be a typical Brit stereotype like Regal was).
WWE Seems to love giving their "Superstars" extremely normal/generic names for some reason. Perhaps creative has a very limited list of cool names they don't want to waste on someone they won't push?
Dean Ambrose- Reminds me of Ambrosia Custard.
and many more...
One more thing... what's with giving the divas a generic, common first name and nothing more?
