The last nickname thread I started was to pick one for Scott Hall. Most of everybody either felt nostalgic or just couldn't come up with better ideas outside the realm of alcohol. The consensus was for the nickname that Hall used as Razor Ramon. As a result, survey said one more for "The Bad Guy" Scott Hall.
Now, things get interesting with Brock Lesnar. It's only been one show, but the newcomer has been the buzz all-over the internet with his impressive moveset. With Paul Heyman to play Lesnar's mouthpiece, it looks like Lesnar could be headed for a monster push and possibly the most impressive rookie year since Kurt Angle. So a man with his potential needs something catchy for a nickname. If you were to give Mr. Lesnar a nickname, what would it be? Brockoli (cuz noone wants a piece of him)? Man Mountain Brock? The Brockmaster? Post your thoughts.

Given who his mouthpiece is, I'm sure "The Extreme" Brock Lesnar was suggested at some point. The question is, does he NEED a nickname? Kurt doesn't have one. Obviously they're going to keep his real name somewhere, otherwise they wouldn't have mentioned it, instead playing him off as a mystery monster. I'm not sure that alleration would go over well.."Bruiser" Brock Lesnar? Brock sounds like a big guy's name anyway, thankfully..think if his name was Floyd. Personally I always liked the name "Moonman" for a wrestler, but I don't think that would work here. Brock "Monster" Lesnar?
Stubby Mc No-Neck! Ok, as for an actual name... I think they might be able to use the ole "Blue Chipper" moniker with him. 1) Because he's the uber "free agent" and 2) Since Brock actually has skill, while Rocky the blue chipper was quite sucky.
But I actually like him just being called "Brock Lensar."
"The Brock"! "Bad" Brock Lesnar, perhaps? How about "Brock Vicious"? Since Paul E's involved, just ignore the intro (as the WWF has proven themselves to be good at) and introduce him as the new Dudley! "Big Dick" Dudley ver. 2.0!

"Bouncer" Brock Lesnar "The Beast" Brock Lesnar (Hey, Dan Severn isn't usin' it) Brock "The Bastard" (Hey, an instant feud with the Bossman! He HATES bastards!) Of course, they could just use the generic "Big", but that'st just lame. Bruiser is also very good...

That's the Impact Zone, and as someone else posted, you don't always book to the live crowd. The live crowds will always cheer Hogan because he's a legend, but that doesn't mean they will pay to see him main event and wrestle.
