    If WWE takes these name changes much further, they're going to start sounding like names out of porn.

  • Marc

    How could they do this to PAC?

  • Louis

    You know, there are no nicknames anymore. Just first names and last names. They should just let them use whatever name they want. What's the big deal about not having ownership in some ring names. Does the WWE own CM Punk's name?

    • jdl

      No, as Punk used it before he hit the WWE.

    • J-Dub

      The big deal with owning the name is they can continue to use it in segments in the future without having to pay any royalties.

  • Bishop

    Not to be confused with Aaron Neville…….it is it?

  • Ian Myers

    No I think CM Punk is one of the main reasons for the insistence on name changes these days, didn’t they let him keep his name not thinking of him as having too much of a future, which they later regretted?
