Aight here's what I mean:
Some real names I really don't have a problem with:
-Randy Orton
-Brock Lesnar
-Kurt Angle
But when you got a fucking name like Garrison Cade...I wanna bitchslap his mamma right now. I guarentee that name will never get over. Shelton may need a nickname like "The Game" or "The Hitman." And yes smartass, I know the Rock never appeared as Dwayne Johnson(even though the announcers said his real name on Survivor Series '96). I'm saying where the hell would he be if was Dwayne Johnson? Would he have gotten over in the "Attitude Era." Shit, he couldn't even get over as "Rocky Maivia."

You're failing to take into account that sometimes, WWE changes the names of some wrestlers so as to avoid confusion with over wrestlers. Unless I'm very much mistaken, Garrison Cade's real first name is Lance, and they gave him the name Garrison to avoid confusion with Lance Storm. Same as The Hurricane, who went by the name Shane Helms in WCW, which was his middle name, but went under Gregory Helms in WWE, which is his first name, to avoid any confusion with Shane McMahon. And again with William Regal, who stopped using the first name Steven to avoid confusion with Steve Austin/Steve Blackman/Steven Richards and so on and so forth. The weird thing about that one is that Steven Regal isn't even his real name...

I'm sure there are other examples of this as well, but I can't think of any...

Of course, if you're JR, you'll still say Lance Cade instead of Garrison. Or call Edge Christian or call Jeff Hardy Matt or etc.

I haven't seen anything in Cade that reminds me of Flair. Now, in certain instances Cade does look like a (very)poor man's version of Barry Windham of the mid-late 80's.



These are desperate times. And desperate times call for desperate measures. Thus, its time to break out the Cubs/White Sox/Red Sox call to put the Kaiser back on the throne.

WWE could always dye Cade's hair black, and do a Waylon Mercy Version 2 gimmick...I'm sure we'd all be up for that.

I think Lawler is at his best (these days, at least) when he's forced to act as play-by-play man as well, such as he did last night. I'm not a huge fan of his announcing anymore, I admit.
