WWE Officially Changes Diva Stable Name – Details

UPDATE x 2: Yesterday we reported that WWE had run into issues with the “Submission Sorority” name and was considering changing it. The company chose the name for Charlotte, Paige and Becky Lynch without realizing that there is an adult video series of that name from BangBros, and was considering changing the name to something different.

Now that’s officially come to pass. TMZ has confirmed that WWE has dropped the name, instead opting for “PCB.” Charlotte also made reference to the new name yesterday on Twitter, posting:

Watch us make our #Smackdown Debut tonight! LassKicking with Flair!! #PCB #DoitwithFlair https://t.co/KXqS5v7zzR

— Charlotte (@MsCharlotteWWE) August 6, 2015

UPDATE: On Monday night, WWE debuted the name “Submission Sorority” for Paige, Becky Lynch and Charlotte. As noted earlier, it looks as if the name will be changed. WWE found out that the name was associated with a porn site, and the name may be changed to the “Submission Sisters”. They have toyed with the “Horsewomen” name, but they do not want to step on Ronda Rousey’s toes by using the name.

TMZ has also picked up the story, noting that the search for the team points you to tons of links for a porn series called HazeHer, produced by BangBros. The article ads that BangBros traffic analyst Delilah Mcginnis says their web traffic shot up 56% overnight, and they saw a 35% rise in subscriptions. They plan to send Vince McMahon a thank you gift basket which I’m sure he’ll be just thrilled with!

ORIGINAL: WWE gave the trio of Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch a team name on Monday’s edition of RAW, similar to Sasha Banks, Naomi and Tamina being called “Team B.A.D.” and the team of Nikki Bella, Brie Bella and Alicia Fox being called “Team Bella.”

“The Submission Sorority,” the team name for the babyface trio, is also the name of an adult website, something WWE quickly found out about after mentioning the name on RAW this past Monday night.

WWE is already talking about changing the name of the group to “The Submission Sisters.”

There were some discussions about giving the group the name “Horsewomen,” however the belief was that it could be seen as stepping on Ronda Rousey’s toes, and/or be a blatant ripoff of a pretty well established name.

Jim Ross On If WWE Can Oull Off A 4-Hour SummerSlam, Tenay/WWE

Jim Ross has posted his latest blog entry online. Check it out below:

On why WWE has never hired Mike Tenay: “That would hae been a TV department decision and one that I would not have been in the loop for whatsoever. Mike could have helped WWE in many ways especially now with the WWE Network.”

On whether WWE can pull off a four-hour SummerSlam: “Yes, to varying degrees but some won’t be too through or deep. There is one match at Summer Slam that will sell the show and that is Taker vs. Lesnar and the rest is support material with the exception of a potential Rollins Vs Cena title vs. title match.”

In an interview with The LAW, Rey Mysterio spoke about his match with Myzteziz this Sunday at the TripleMania PPV. Here are highlights:

On his match against Myzteziz this Sunday: “I definitely think this is something that not only we wanted but the fans demanded. I think it will define our legacy. We both have similarities in our styles, in our outfit… Over the years he has spoke highly about how he has admired my career for so long. I saw him wrestle in Mexico & many times on TV & he was the future of Mexican wrestling at the time. It’s definitely a dream match – without a doubt. I know we’re gonna go out there & put everything on the line & give the fans exactly what they deserve.”

On his health: “It’s incredible. I’ve had a lot of time to heal up & my body is actually thanking me now for getting that opportunity to rest – to strengthen up my quads from all the damage over the years on my left knee. My right knee – thank God, knock on wood – it’s in great condition. Now I’ve just gotta stay in shape & keep doing what I love but on my own terms – not like in the early 30’s.”
