• Jim Ross Comments On Coming Up With ‘Booger Red’ Name For The Undertaker

During a recent edition of The Jim Ross Report, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross talked about coming up with ‘Booger Red’ name for The Undertaker.

Below is what Good Ol’ JR said:

“Of all the names that I threw out there, some stuck and some didn’t. This one did not, obviously. If it did, it stuck in a bad way. But the Booger Red definition is very simple and this is a very often asked question.

Booger Red was in reference to the great Texas linebacker, the late Tommy Nobis. Tommy Nobis wore number 60. He had a 20-inch neck. He had red hair. And so all through school, because he was such a fierce hitter, at 6’3″, probably 245 [lbs.], linebacker, he was huge for that position in that era. He unhinged people.

His nickname was Booger Red. Well, if you look in the dictionary for what a booger is, it’s not something that you go look for with you index finger in your nose. Booger means a goblin or something like that, a scary person or a scary entity specifically, so I thought, ‘well, this might stretch out there and make something.’ Taker is that macabre type of figure and Booger Red was kind of a tribute to his Texas heritage. And, basically, what happened is that it s*** the bed and so that’s where we are. And that’s who Booger Red was.

It was trying to use a little football and Tommy Nobis was the baddest of the bad. There was nobody like him. He’d tear you apart, blah, blah, blah. Taker’s the same way in his world. And Taker, of course, had red hair. Anyway, the more you explain it the more crappy it is.”

• The Shield Reunites To Take Out Braun Strowman On RAW – Is Strowman A Heel Now?

In the main event of tonight’s RAW, Roman Reigns defended his Universal Championship against Finn Balor.

During the ending moments of the match, Mr. Money In The Bank Braun Strowman came out and this distracted Reigns.

It looked like Reigns was going to lose, but Reigns defeated Balor by hitting a Spear.

Strowman then kicked Reigns and cashed-in his Money In The Bank contract, but The Shield’s music hits and Dean Ambrose and Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins came out in Shield gear!

Commentators are saying that Strowman’s Money In The Bank contract hasn’t been cashed-in officially.

Strowman attacks Reigns and The Shield then teams up to beat Strowman down.

Rollins & Ambrose are now clearing the announce table. The Shield is setting up for the Triple Powerbomb, but Strowman fights back.

Reigns nails a Spear on Strowman and then The Shield powerbombs Strowman through the announce table!

RAW goes off the air with The Shield doing their signature fist pump.
