The WWE announced earlier that the June "King of the Ring" PPV is now named "WWE Bad Blood".

USELESS FACT
They used this name back in 1997 for their October PPV, featuring the famous Hell in a Cell match between Undertaker and Shawn Michaels.

Since they are splitting the PPV's, I would have liked to have seen them take some of the old WCW names for a few. "Superbrawl" sounds much cooler than "Bad Blood" in my opinion.

I'd like that too. I don't really like the name Bad Blood.

But, Vince McMahon hates the WCW brand-names. Back when they were trying to re-name the December PPV in 2001 (because "Armageddon" wasn't appropriate after 9/11), someone suggested "Starrcade" to Vince, and he just laughed it off. Therefore, don't look to see "SuperBrawl" used anytime soon.

Of couse, Jim Cornette DID name one of his OVW specials "Fall Brawl". So, I guess you never know.

How about Battle on the Beach!

I always loved the idea of an outdoor pro wrestling venue fought on a beach. Somehow, things seemed much more intense and the fights were more real. It was kind of like that time Van Damme fought that guy in the mostly dry swimming pool.

Goddamnit. I was really hoping that they wouldn't go through with the split PPV's. Now they've gone and ruined one of my favorite PPV, King of the Ring. Why couldn't they have gotten rid of Survivor Series? Plus, if they gotta go and change some names around, they oughta bring back Fully Loaded. I always thought that was a cool name.

Is Vince also looking to buy the names of ECW's PPV's along with the tape library? I'd like to see "Anarchy Rulz" or "November to Remember" being promoted.

I think "Total Disaster" would be a perfect name for the PPV.

Yeah, I always liked the Fully Loaded name. I don't know why they didn't bring that back. I also thought the Anarchy Rulz name was pretty cool too.

Of course, I always thought a good name for a PPV would be "Black Sabbath". They should try and get the rights from the band.

And what's with the crappy show names latley? I really don't like the name "Bad Blood". And have you heard some of the overseas tour names? "WWE Far East Tour" and "WWE Tour of India". I mean, what the fuck? What happened to those kick-ass names like "Heart Attack Tour"?

I thought Backlash was going to be the first split PPV?

And where's the hip, misspelling that makes everything COOL?! Wasn't it Badd Blood in 1997?

DAMN!!! I was planning on going to King of the Ring since it is here in my town this year. Now we get a RAW PPV?

Hopefully by then some cool stuff is going on.

yeah i totally agree. that was always what made wcw kind of cheesy for me, even though i watched it till its final dying breath. "starrcade"? "bash at the beach"? "superbrawl"? when the wwf had much more modern sounding names (backlash, armageddon, etc.), it made wcw seem hopelessly 80s to me.

I don't know. I kinda like "Bad Blood" for a PPV name. I guess I'm in the minority. Maybe it's 'cause I associate it with the first Hell in the Cell, and late '97 WWF. And I wouldn't count on WWE ever using a name associated with WCW PPVs. I liked some of them, but you just know it won't happen. And for those that say WCW names were too cheesy, WWF/WWE PPV names can be equally as cheesy- we are just more used to them. Summerslam is no better a name than Halloween Havoc or Bash at the Beach. It's just that we've heard Summerslam over and over again for the past 15 years, so we couldn't imagine it any other way. And if you think about it, even the name "Wrestlemania" is kind of lame.

I will miss King of the Ring, but I guess it's been kinda lame the last few years.

I don't think they'll be using that hip misspelling, since that's the PPV where Brian Pillman's death was announced. Something tells me either they're trying to be clever, or the people naming these PPVs weren't around back then.

I think the 1997 one was "Badd Blood."

Anywho, WWEBADBLOOD.COM was registered on Monday. (WWEBADDBLOOD.COM is still available for squatting)

All we need is Cheetum...LOL

Considering how Vince can turn something cool into complete crap, could he take a garbage angle or match into pure gold?

Um... Yeah. Spin the Wheel, make the deal was made into Raw Roulette, which kicked ass, I thought. I don't think I'd mind that as a PPV gimmick as far as that goes. As long as the wheel is rigged!
