Who are you again? There are a lot of ways for a wrestler to get the fans’ attention but some of them are a bit simpler than others. One of the best is to have a name that is unique enough to make someone listen while also sounding like something that could be intimidating. That is a hard combination to pull off and now WWE is trying a different path with two of its wrestlers.
WWE has changed the names of Humberto Carrillo and Angel Garza to just Humberto and Angel, according to both of their WWE.com profiles. This follows WWE’s trend of dropping wrestlers’ first or last names, such as with Cesaro, Big E. and Ali. There is no word on why the names were changed, though the two have been teaming together, under the name Los Lotharios as of this week’s SmackDown.
They are talented guys under any name. Check out the two of them together and apart:
Opinion: I’m not sure why WWE has this weird obsession with changing names but this might not be the worst move. Putting the two of them together is a fine enough pairing and it’s more than either of them has been given in a very long time. Let them see what they can do with the new gimmick, as it could get them somewhere. The talent is there, and that should be enough no matter what they’re called.
What do you think of the changes? How do you see them doing as a change? Let us know in the comments below.
