Whoever you are. With so many wrestlers on the WWE roster, it can be difficult to make someone stand out. There are ways to make someone more of a success than others, but it is quite the trick to get everything working. WWE knows what it is doing a lot of the time though and hopefully that is the case again, as a new name has joined the main roster as of this week.
This week’s edition of SmackDown saw the debut of Max Dupri, who described himself as the head of a male modeling agency. Sonya Deville signed Dupri before she was relieved of her position, meaning Adam Pearce did not know Dupri was coming. Dupri is better known as LA Knight, who had been appearing in dark segments before recent editions of SmackDown, where he debuted various clients, such as Mansoor and T-Bar. There is no word on why WWE made the name change.
This is a different way to go. Check out the debut:
Opinion: One of these days, I would love a full on explanation for why WWE decides to make most of these name changes. I know they did not want Dupri using the name he had used outside of the company, but they came up with Knight in the first place and then changed it when they moved him to the main roster. I’m not sure I get the logic behind that, and WWE does have a tendency to make some odd choices in this area. Hopefully talent wins over, but you never know how well it is going to work out.
What did you think of the debut? How will Dupri do on the main roster? Let us know in the comments below.
