Like our SmackDown review that went up earlier,
which praised arguably the best WWE match
of the year so far: Rey Mysterio vs Andrade
‘Ci-… Andrade Alm… Andrade ‘Cien’
Alm- God, it takes so long to say his name.
Thankfully, saving minutes of precious TV
time a year, WWE have now shortened Andrade
‘Cien’ Almas’ name to just… Andrade.
One word… like Madonna. That’s an incredibly
specific reference to the live action movie
version of Inspector Gadget from 1999.
Following in the rich tradition of Big E Langston
becoming just Big E, Adrian Neville renamed
as Neville, Alexander Rusev as just Rusev,
Antonio Cesaro as, you guessed it, Cesaro
and Elias Samson as Elias – last night’s
SmackDown started referring to Andrade ‘Cien’
Almas as just ‘Andrade’, which was also
pushed on social media with 2019 being ‘The
Year of Andrade’.
I, for one, think it’s a brilliant idea.
More wrestlers should be referred to by just
their first names. Making their way down to
the ring is 16 time WWE World Champion…
John! Or your newest main roster star, NXT
call-up E… C…
Out of the New Era’s class of six NXT call-ups,
only Nikki Cross has made their in-ring debut
in the month since they were all first announced
…even though she technically already made
her main roster debut on SmackDown back in
November.
WWE have instead opted to roll out EC3, Heavy
Machinery and Lacey Evans in backstage cameos
and insane mumblings about Alexa Bliss being
pretty.
Potentially to prepare them for the main roster
crowds, they have been wrestling in dark matches
before the Raw and SmackDown broadcasts begin
– with EC3 beating Aiden English and Heavy
Machinery defeating The Colons before last
night’s episode began for the live crowd
only.
It’s still unknown which brand the New Era
call-ups will end up on, with them currently
appearing across both shows and the commentators
playing up they’re not yet exclusively signed
to either. Brand split, lol
With six wrestlers leaving NXT, though, it
looks like WWE already having one person to
fill their place…
Trevor Lee’s contract with IMPACT Wrestling
expired on December 31st, and he was written
out of the promotion when Killer Kross punched
a concrete block through his face – an injury
angle that kind of feels like it should hurt
Kross quite a bit too.
Lee first told Sports Illustrated back in
November that he’d become a free agent as
of January 2019, saying “Ultimately, I would
like to go to WWE”, and he’s now revealed
at a CWF Mid-Atlantic show over the weekend
that he’s signed with Vince McMahon’s
promotion.
Lee isn’t just a three time TNA and IMPACT
X Division Champion, he’s also one of the
most unsung innovators in independent wrestling
– once wrestling a one hour 45 minute match
to win the CWF title. His recently passed
father is also a co-founder of OMEGA Wrestling,
the promotion the Hardy Boyz ran before signing
with WWE in the 90s.

  1. This just makes it more likely that Lars Sullivan (when he gets his ass out of anxiety) will go ahead to SmackDown, since EC3, Lacey Evans and Nikki cross debuted on RAW – and although heavy machinery appeared on both raw and SmackDown (which makes no sense)
    I find it quite infuriating that WWE is making it complicated for themselves to entertain us.

  2. The geeking channel

    I want to see Austin Aires return to Wrestling like do another run for WWE Impact proved Austin Aires is excellent in the ring and main event worthy please sign him and give him a big push

  3. Metalhead Wrestling

    I swear if they refer to Aleister Black as simply Aleister, I will go to WWE Headquarters in Stamford CT and deliver a Black Mass to Vince.

  4. Where was your outrage about Kane then? Or Kharma? OR when they shortened it to just HHH? So sick of post millenials telling me all about wrestling…

  5. For the love of everything that is good, I hope they don't shorten Aleister Black's name when he gets called up… Like just calling him "Aleister" or "Black"…

  6. Can they PLEASE PLEASE get some new Trunks and look for Trevor Lee?? He's only going to be on 205 Live anyway so we'll never see him.

  7. WWE is Woman’s Wrestling Entertainment they pushing the women’s division more then the guys good work Vince for killing your show slowly

  8. well it makes sense let's just shorten everybody names. If you have a first & last name well your last name is gone now. Isn't that right 16x world champion John.

  9. They really should keep taking away half their names. Doesn't this look so much better?

  10. ㄒ丨爪乇丂ㄩ卩

    🅳🅸🆂🅻🅸🅺🅴 🅿🅾🅻🅸🅲🅴 🅷🅴🆁🅴 your under Arrest for Disliking this like this or go to youtube jail

  11. TNA is a good show I don’t watch it but it looks fun they may not be the biggest game in town but that’s fine they don’t have to be

  12. On the name change thing, I can't honestly say that I give the slightest of a shit about it. It's not a big deal.

    Good for Trevor Lee, though. He got what he wanted.

  13. What if Name abbreviations,was an older concept.
    The the under would be a phenom.
    Coal would be a commentator
    Big would be the worlds largest athlete.

  14. Trevor Lee should've signed with AEW. Now Vince McMahon will waste his talent like the rest of his roster. Not a wise move.

  15. I love how Andrade "Cien" Almas is too long of a name but Stone Cold Steve Austin or Macho Man Randy Savage weren't.
