10 Dumbest Ring Names The WWE Prorposed to Wrestlers

cott Hall always had the ingredients to be a star but never the right character and attitude to make it work. That changed in WCW as he slicked back his hair, chewed a toothpick and had a cool finisher. It got attention but the politics of the company pushed him out. Travelling to WWE, Hall pitched the addition of a “Cuban” accent and wanted something “sharp” for his name (despite how WWE briefly considered using him as a military soldier type). At first, he got some bad ones, including “Shrug Shadow,” which someone somehow thought was a cool drug-dealer type of name.

Thankfully, Hall decided “Razor Ramon” sounded much better and used it to become one of the company’s biggest stars. It’s amazing how close “The Bad Guy” came to just sounding really bad.
