Scott Keith -- and a few other intrepid reporters I saw, but it's just so much fun to single out good ol' SK -- continually referred to Chris Nowinski as "Chris Harvard" this week, even though WWE is clearly calling him Chris Nowinski. Why? Does he think it gives him street cred because he knows Nowinski used that name in the indies for like six months before getting the call?

I might add he also gave the match something like an eighth of a star, even though I thought Nowinski was really impressive. He SO should have won Tough Enough. I was actually rooting for him. I love heels.

And as long as I'm on this subject, remember that guy Pat Diggins who wrote a column about going to Killer Kowalski's wrestling school during the dying days of Wrestleline? After Tough Enough ended, I remember he referred to Nowinski as "Chris Harvey." He must have misheard "Harvard," but I originally assumed he changed it so he could be "Harvard" Chris Harvey, which I think is a pretty cool name, actually. Much better than Nowinski or Chris Harvard, which is stupid. Well, I guess they're stuck with Nowinski now.

Nowinski wrestled as Chris Harvey then switched to Chris Harvard. Greg for some reason wrestled as Greg Matthews, Josh "Matthews" Lomberger's brother, which I always found funny. I used all the last names to show how cool I am. Chris Nowinski was called Chris Harvard on the final episode of TE2 too.

Well, I'm no fan of Keith's (in fact, I'd say Cornette likes Russo and Ferrara better), but color me guilty too on the whole gimmick of calling people by their old ring names.

I still call Jim Hellwig "the Dingo" and the Undertaker "Mean Mark Callous." I don't do it for everyone, just the ones that click in my head.

Ah, but you're doing it to be funny. Nothing wrong with that. I didn't get the sense Keith was doing it to be funny.

"Nowinski" is HARD to type!

"Harvard" is SO much easier!

SERIOUSLY. Who would want to type Nowinski when you can just type Harvard? Besides, it's not like recappers are particularly known for calling every wrestler by their correct ring names, eh?

Harvard is better than NOWITSKY or NOWITZKI or some other terrible misspelling which I've seen on several "top notch" sites. In fact, one so-called editor had it spelled "Nowinski" once and "Nowitski" once in the same sentence.

We should now call the star player on the Dallas Mavericks Dirk Harvard, since Nowitzki is so hard to type.

Well Bill Simmons always seems to refer to him as Dirk Diggler, so I guess there's some precedent there ;)
