Jim Ross Blogs: Shinsuke Nakamura’s Ring Name In NXT, WrestleMania 32, The Undertaker

WWE Live Events
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on WWE possibly changing Shinsuke Nakamura’s ring name, WrestleMania 32 and more. Here are the highlights.

On WWE possibly changing Shinsuke Nakamura’s ring name in NXT:

I have no issues with WWE changing Shinsuke Nakamura’s ring name if they choose. WWE should own the talent’s names and/or have the legal rights to protect their intellectual property in the show ¬†biz world of pro wrestling. It’s sound business and won’t adversely affect how Nakamura gets over with the fans. ¬†In the eyes of many, mine too, Nakamura is one of the most gifted talents in the world and brings as much natural charisma to his presentation as anyone in the business today.

On the differences between RAW and NXT:

I think one reason that some vocal fans enjoy NXT more than RAW is that ¬†NXT is a easy, one hour watch plus the fact that the NXT TV format changes from time to time to fit that episode’s content. RAW’s format hasn’t changed much in 20 years which ought to answer any question asking if RAW’s format should be tweaked from time to time. That answer should be obvious.

On rumors of Braun Strowman facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32:

I never intended to ‘knock’ Braun Strowman, but the giant, prospect isn’t ready IMO to face Brock or Taker at Wrestlemania Texas, there’s that term again, but if Strowman is slowly nurtured, is given plenty of one on one matches at WWE live events he can hopefully be ready for the 2017 Wrestlemania if he progresses as one would ideally like. One of the challenges that exists in wrestling is when talents before they are ready. ¬†Strowman’s extraordinary size will allow hm to ¬†be given an opportunity to develop at a sound, deliberate pace.

      Idk. They didn’t change joe, Aries, or AJ. I think it could go either way. After all, this dude is one of a few handfuls of people to ever beat Brock

        I don’t see the point of changing people’s names

          WWE changes peerformers’ names so that they, meaning WWE, can copyright and own the name and character of the performer. That way if the performer leaves WWE, they, meaning the performer, cannot show up in another promotion under the same name. This is why WWE was able to have other people portray Razor Ramon and Diesel after Scott Hall and Kevin Nash left to go to WCW and form the nWo.
