WWE Has Dropped Team Name For Sheamus & Drew McIntyre

The tag team name of Sheamus & Drew McIntyre will no longer be used in WWE after too much of a resemblance to another business that isn’t PG like WWE is.

Sheamus and Drew McIntyre have been rivals on-screen in WWE, but they have gone back to being allies over the past several months on Smackdown. When Sheamus got married last year, Drew McIntyre was right there beside him as the Best Man at the wedding.

They have had similar paths in their wrestling careers going from young European stars to WWE veterans that have won multiple World Titles in their careers.

Recently, Sheamus and Drew were calling themselves “The Banger Bros” on Smackdown. The reason for the name is because wrestlers often refer to great matches as “bangers” with Sheamus using the term a lot speaking about how he has “banger after banger” referring to his great matches.

While the name “The Banger Bros” sounded like a good idea, it’s probably not a smart move to use that name in WWE considering there is a fairly well-known porn company called Bang Bros.

Due to the close association with the porn company that is absolutely not PG like WWE, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that WWE has dropped the name from the Sheamus & Drew McIntyre team.

Sheamus & Drew McIntyre will be in action on tonight’s episode of Smackdown just one night before the Royal Rumble on Saturday. They will face Hit Row in a Tag Team Title Contender’s Tournament Semifinal match.

Other matches on tonight’s Smackdown episode include:

* Rey Mysterio vs. Karrion Kross.

* Kevin Owens vs. Solo Sikoa.

* Imperium vs. Legado Del Fantasma in a Tag Team Title Contender’s Tournament Semifinal match.

We will have a full review of Smackdown right here on TJRWrestling later this evening.
