Wow! I wonder who comes up with the names for the new WWE wrestlers because they are just horrible. It is either someone who is on drugs or Dusty Rhodes as looking at the names of the WWE’s NXT rookies for season 2 one can see just how horrible the names are.

For example they have Joe Hennig, the son of Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig, who is a WWE Hall of Famer and multi-time Intercontinental Champion. Instead of playing up the fact that Joe is the son of this wrestling legend they instead give him the name Micheal McGillicutty. Not only is the name completely awful but there is just no way that the WWE can push the fact that he is the son of Curt Hennig. A similar tale can be told for Duke Rotunda, the son of Mike ‘IRS’ Rotunda, whose new name is Husky Harris. Sigh!

It’s funny that other second and third generation wrestlers such as Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes and DH Smith are allowed to play up their family connections, as have others (Sim Snuka), so why can’t the new guys? Even with the new Samoan tag team featuring Jay and Jimmy Uso (sons of Rikishi) and Tamina Snuka (daughter of Jimmy Snuka) the WWE are mentioning their famous relatives so why not with the NXT guys? It doesn’t make sense.
