• “Please don’t make me Butch” – Former WWE Wrestler
NXT wrestler Pete Dunne was recently brought up to the WWE main roster on SmackDown.
He joined Sheamus’ stable, with his new name being “Butch”, which the NXT fans didn’t like.
Whenever a wrestler starts with WWE, they are told to give a list of ring names they’d like to have.
During an interview on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, former WWE NXT wrestler Bull Dempsey revealed that one of the names he put on his list was Butch, even though he didn’t like that name.
Below is what he said:
“There’s all this uproar about Pete Dunne being Butch. Butch was one of the names I put on my list, thinking, ‘Oh, they’ll never use this,’ but not realizing that Bill DeMott’s nickname for his son was Butch, so he loved it.
He kept trying to get me, like, ‘Oh, I think you should be Butch.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t wanna be Butch! Please don’t make me Butch.’
It’s funny that Pete has it now. He’s so talented that a name is not gonna hold him back. He’s awesome.”
