• Rhino Comments On WWF Wanting To Change His Name To “Mary”
During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho, ECW Legend Rhino talked about WWF officials wanting to change his name when he came in.
Below is what he said:
“They wanted to change my name to Mary. This was after ECW. They were like, ‘We gotta change your name.’ And I go, ‘Why?’ They go, ‘We can’t patent it.’ [Joe Legend] said, ‘Why don’t they just change [the I] to a Y?’
I think they just wanted to create their own character for me. Edge goes, ‘You guys are going to drop the ball. Bring him in as our friend and heater.’ They wanted to dye my hair blonde and make me their little brother.
Can you imagine having to dye your hair blonde all the time? They were kicking around different ideas. Juggernaut was one. The worst one was Mary. I don’t know where it came from.”
