Even Dolph back in 2008 was given 15 minutes to come up with something better than that, and he I guess spent that fifteen minutes listening to Ratt or something 

could've been worse.

He could've had 9 months and come up with "Bruce"

I think it varies between people though. I'm fairly sure Xavier Woods is pretty happy if people call him Austin Creed.

My first exposure to Chris Hero was a Juggalo Championshit Wrestling VHS my freshman year roommate showed me, in which he is called: The Bicurious Hero, Chris Hoagie, Chris Homo, and‚ÄĒmost enthusiastically‚ÄĒPiss Taco. So I guess what I‚Äôm saying is Chris Hero struck¬†me as less awful than it might have, given the context.¬†

"Piss Taco" Chris Homo would have been sleaze gold.

You'd think Dolph would have come up with a name combined from hair metal band members.

Ex. David Lee Rockett

RE: old names vs WWE names.

It's kinda like calling Tom Selleck's character in Blue Bloods "Magnum PI" because you liked that character better. The wrestler who played Chris Hero is now the wrestler playing Kassius Ohno. I understand the nostalgia, though.

Maybe we can call everyone by their shoot names. Alexis Kaufman, Colby Daniel Lopez, Bryan Lloyd Danielson, Nuufolau Joel Seanoa.

Don’t start that. Chris Hero isn’t really playing a character any different than he did wrestling on the indies. A better comparison is Husky Harris, and Bray Wyatt. Not only is it a different gimmick, but a different role entirely.

My favorite "Paul E rips off Heenan" line is him laughing about how "Mr. And Mrs. Chip had nine months and the best they could come up with was Firebreaker."

You know, I hear people all the time refer to actors by character names. "Did you see the new movie about the gut with the genius kid? It has Captain America in it"

Yeah, but they're not doing to feel smarter about the film business and that's how it comes off in wrestling circles.

I don't think that's always the case with wrestling fans either.

When I see Ohno, I literally think "Chris Hero." No agenda, no "ha I know his old name" just when I see that dude I see Chris Hero.

Yeah, i often will instinctively call people by their first gimmick name, just because my brain works that way. Just like I will more often than not still say WWF, not to be a smart ass, but it just happens.

The thing is, it isn't thinking of an old name, or even saying it during conversation because it's what's familiar. It's taking the time to type out a guys old name that comes across a little smarky. No offense, Eddie.

I don't think it's intentional, it's just how it appears. Because some fans do call CM Punk "Phil" just to be smart and it's annoying. And I'm no better since I'll probably call PAC "Neville" for a year at least.

Using a shoot name they never wrestled under is just fucking stupid, no question.

How vocal does this guy have to be to get his R-Truth WWE title run?

If I boo everyone and then bust out a megaphone for the ‚ÄúLet‚Äôs go Truth‚ÄĚ chants will Vince & co listen?

92yo & still beating up on whippersnappers like Rusev & Nakamura.

Speaking of bad names. From easy to say, Dijak, to one that is four syllables too long, Dijakovic. That’s one where I’m extremely okay with people going back to the indie name, as a nickname.

Wonder why he couldn‚Äôt go by his real name,¬†Chris Dijak? Has ‚ÄúDijak‚ÄĚ been trademarked?
