JUNE 2016 NXT GENERAL DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

Triple H became a nickname for Hunter Hearst Helmsley at least and it stuck. I'm not sure what Oney Lorcan is supposed to be.

And this will sound extremely shallow, but could you ever imagine hearing the announcer say, "WWE Intercontinental Champion...ONEY LORCAN!" or "WWE World Heavyweight Champion...ONEY LORCAN!" 

Like I said though, that's super shallow, because I could imagine each of those for Shinsuke Nakamura. I think it will just take some time to get used to it, but it's definitely one of the weirder names in recent memory.

If he makes the main roster the announcers trying to figure it out is going to be great.

Who are the O-nee-ders?

EDIT: Props to BP for referencing That Thing You Do.

Clearly it's an anagram for something. Lone Crayon?

Everybody talking about Girard coming up with the name and bringing it to the office.  But they also had to approve that name.  So, we have multiple people fucking up.

Looney narc.  I assume this means Busick is a government informant and Vince is going to be busted for steroids again.

This is a sign of just how much Dusty is missed in developmental.

Oney Lorcan kind of reminds me of this Spanish game show from the 1990s:

Is it pronounced "Owny" or "Woney"?

I'm not trying to jump on the "That Thing You Do" reference, I really don't know.

Is that the show that had its own Thunderdome? Cause that needs to make a comeback.

Didn't Dusty come up with Oz in WCW?

In regards to the name thing - I think Mark was referring to the story that Summer Rae told that her original name was like Karly or Kristy or someting like that and Dusty heard it was like "NO WAY! YOU ARE A SUMMER!" and then called the office and told them that her name was being changed.

There are so many random stories of NXT names right now. Like Nia Jax randomly tweeted this this morning (in reference to Hugo Knox)

Which from the story that was with that Tweet

Quote

The creation of the name Hugo Knox

“I wish I could tell you a good story about that, but a list of names got put in a hat of the names I picked, and we came up with one that stuck...[NXT superstar] Nia Jax likes to say she came up with it, but I don’t think she did,” he chuckled.

No credit for Nia?

“I’m not giving her any credit whatsoever.”

I think it was going to be Kylie Summers.  Which is way too Kardashian in tone.  And possibly the name of an adult film star.

Umm...Summer Rae is much more porny than Kylie Summers in my view.  I'd probably argue that the best women's wrestling names are essentially the same as the best porn names.  I should probably stop typing this on my work computer.

Gutter mind. ;) Her name is literally ray of July sunshine!

Those of you in the NYC Area,  NXT *Something* Brooklyn tickets are on pre-sale now.

The impression I got from Twitter was that they were sold out already (and that was before Dolfan's post)

I think that it was the Summerslam weekend package (which includes NXT tickets) that sold out.

You could make a good clickbait quiz called "NXT Wrestler or Porn Star."

Austin Aries... Alexa Bliss... Dash Wilder...
