Well, Michael McGillicutty has been training with The Rock as we have noted before. However, now it's been made clear that The Rock & Triple H are both behind McGillicutty as being part of the future. There's also a rather large push, according to the Wrestling Observer, to push out the "McGillicutty" name and use Joe Hennig ...his actual name. WWE officials are reportedly so far against using real names though as WWE "need to own full names" that this is unlikely to happen. No word as to why Hennig isn't actually being used though.

I understand they don't want to use real names, but don't tell us he's the son of late great Curt Hennig and call him McGillicutty at the same time. 

They do the same shit with Bo Dallas on NXT (son of IRS) 

btw.. Joe better eat a few charisma bars before this major push.

Bo needs to get rid of that dumb fucking glove too.  Why is he wearing one black leather glove?  

I think I've heard it suggested on here that he should be called The Perfect Son or some shit.  That would work.  I think that everyone can agree that calling him McGillicutty is stupid.

^ I wonder if they could own Curt Henning, Jr. That'd be win/win. Phone Post

The McGillicutty name is just plain stupid. I totally get that they want to own all intellectual property but lets be honest - do you really consider that name "intellectual" property?

They really need to think more about these names. Dolph Ziggler does not sound like a name that should be headlining Wrestlemania, nor does Michael McGillicutty. Phone Post

I sort of get why they protect the names, but he's a fucking Henning. He's the Perfect Son. It's damn near the most instant push you should have.


We're not talking Reid Flair here, amirite?

Since his real name is Hennig couldn't they use Henning and copyright it and still leave him is birth name? Not connecting him with Larry the Axe and Mr Perfect is moronic. They love that third generation super start label.

My guess would be he wears the one glove in honor of his Grandfather Blackjack Mulligan.

Dumb on WWE's part to not let people use their real names.  What's he going to do?  Go to TNA?  Not like anyone would know or care.

I think it has to do with continued use of the name after they are no longer employed there. If they own the rights to the name, the double double E might have to pay royalties. I dont know all the legal details but I am guessing it has something to do with that.

Can they really own rights to someone's real name though?  I am guessing here as well, but I think they use the fake names so that they CAN own rights to them.

Oh and thanks!

I don't think they do.

Suppose Cena quit today or was fired.

Would he have to use a fake name to go make a movie or wrestle somewhere else?

They should use Josh Matthews to conduct all of McGillicutty's backstage interviews and have McGillicutty start every interview with "Shut up, Matthews!" Phone Post

Times like this we need an insider to splain all this legal mumbo jumbo to us. This is the PWF, the only legal stuff we are educated on is BAC. Phone Post
