As we've talked about before, WWE, and specifically Triple H, have big plans for NXT's Dylan Miley, who WWE recently changed the name of to Lars Sullivan. Lars is earmarked for a big push in NXT, with the hope of having him on the main roster within a year.
He's dealt with numerous injuries the last couple of years, which has kept pushing back the company's plans for him. Triple H decided he wanted to give him a fresh start and a fresh name, but the reason the name was chosen is pretty funny. Knowing that Vince McMahon has an affinity for large wrestlers and knowing that Vince is also a huge proponent of anybody representing Vince's Irish heritage, Triple H decided he wanted Miley to have an Irish sounding name in the hopes it would subconsciously endear Vince to Miley and increase the chances of him being over with Vince. Thus, Lars Sullivan was born.
