Well. It's official. http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news/7342/the-miz-interesting-tweets-ryback-registration-frustration

The only reason to name Ryback what he's named and not Sheffield (which would have gone great with his current gimmick) was so they could trademark it. But now apparently they can't. So. The name Ryback isn't gonna be around for long. So this is where you tell the forum your suggestions. What do you think he should be named next?

I'll go first.

Ryback the Juggernaut

I'm sure we'll get better as we go along (ok mine aren't really so good but it's all I could think of off the top of my head)

I would say just because they can't trademark doesn't mean they are going to change it. I'm sure there have been other wrestlers names that couldn't be trade marked. Plus Ryback fits with the destroyer gimmick...Skip Sheffield sounds country.

What's official? WWE attempting to trademark Ryback? or you're assumption that this will result in a name change?

It does not necessarily mean they will change it and with the amount of time gone into it already i don't think they will.


If they do however the will add a last name.

Or simply Ryback the Destroyer kind of like Conan the Barbarian.

They should jusy call him Ryan Reeves. That sounds like a good wrestling name.

I personally like calling him Sloth. There's something very Goonies-ish about him.

Just chuck in a first name. John Ryback. They may as well call him John. The announcers have got use to calling the face of the company John......

The only reason they can't get a trademark is because Ryback is just a surname and taking into account his cyborg type gimmick why not just add "The"? The Ryback.

"The Ryback is coming!" "The Ryback just broke Curt Hawkins!" "Oh MAh Gawd it's The Ryback!" etc. has a nice ring to it I think.

If he is to be known as John Ryback from now on, I probably wouldn't think the same of him. Ryback alone was kinda iffy to me but turning it into John Ryback?? No. Just won't have me hooked.

It worked for others; The Rock, The Macho Man, The Undertaker!

Have Ryback and Drew McIntyre become a tag team and call them Nappa and Raditz.

Sorry to derail but that is an AWESOME Gambit pic in your Sig DUBS. Where's it from (book and issue number)

Thanks man. I got it from this comic book site called iFanboy. I believe it's from X-Men Origins Gambit #1.

It's sick man. I was always a big Gambit (even if they destroyed the character in X-Men Origins, I still liked the idea that Gambit was at least in the movie) fan but never got to read his comic series... If the artwork is that brilliant, I might be getting into it soon.

And what's the deal with assuming they couldn't trademark "Skip Sheffield"???
