That’s the best they have? Wrestling names are some of the most important parts of a wrestler’s full package, as the wrong name can ruin a career in a hurry. I don’t think Hulk Hogan would have done as well if he had been named Bob Smith or Undertaker would be quite the legend if he was Smiley Montgomery. WWE has some rather interesting names, and now we might be seeing some more of them.
According to HeelByNature.com, WWE has applied for trademarks for “Nikki ASH” and “Happy Corbin”. Nikki Cross debuted the ASH nickname on this week’s Monday Night Raw, announcing that it stood for “Almost A Superhero”. There is no word on how the Corbin name will be used, though King Corbin’s name was changed back to Baron Corbin after he lost his King’s Crown to Shinsuke Nakamura.
What could be. Check out the people likely to use these new names in better times:
Opinion: This is a good example of WWE beating you over the head with something and taking away whatever kind of fun might be included. Cross as a superhero is fine, but calling her Nikki ASH is a bit too far. Then there’s Happy Corbin, which has me more scared than anything else. WWE has really enjoyed pushing Corbin, and unless this is some sort of a deal like when he nicknamed Chad Gable as Shorty G., I’m worried about where this goes.
What do you think of the names? Which will be a bigger hit? Let us know in the comments below.
