• Original Plan For The Name Of Sheamus’ Stable On SmackDown
Former WWE Champion Sheamus has a stable on SmackDown, which consists of Ridge Holland and Butch (fka Pete Dunne in NXT).
They are still involved in a feud with The New Day, despite defeating them at WrestleMania 38.
On last Friday’s SmackDown, it was revealed that the name of Sheamus’ stable is “The Brawling Brutes”.
However, this wasn’t the original plan. Prior to the above name, WWE considered the following two names (as they filed trademarks for them):
– Bloody Brutes
– Brutal Brutes
Below is the description for the trademark of Brutal Brutes:
“Mark For: BRUTAL BRUTES trademark registration is intended to cover the categories of entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information; fan club services, namely, organizing sporting events in the field of wrestling for wrestling fan club members; organizing social entertainment events for entertainment purposes for wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the field of sports entertainment.”
