• WWE Drops Non-PG Name For Sheamus & Drew McIntyre
Former WWE Champions Drew McIntyre and Sheamus have started teaming up and they are a part of the ongoing tournament to crown the #1 contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
Earlier this month, McIntyre & Sheamus began calling themselves “The Banger Bros”.
However, WWE isn’t announcing them with that name, not even on their website.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE has dropped that name because it’s very similar to an adult movie company:
“WWE has dropped the name The Banger Bros for Sheamus & McIntyre after finding out about the p*rno company called Bang Bros.”
