WWE: 20 Worst Superstar Names Ever Given

4 of 21

18. Mr. America

‘Mr. America’ was one of the dumbest names conceivable during the early 2000s. A blatant rip-off of the famous ‘Captain America’ comic book superhero, Mr. America didn’t have anything new to contribute to WWE.

Not only was the name unoriginal and too overly-patriotic, even by American standards, but the costume was eerily similar to the same comic book character.

Add to this the fact that Mr. America used Hogan’s catchphrases, voice and entrance theme, and you had a character with a goofy name wasting people’s time on SmackDown.

It was through this character that SmackDown underwent almost a complete 180 between 2002 and 2003. While the former year put rising stars and new talent in the spotlight, the following year featured an unnecessary focus on stars of the past. Hogan, under the Mr. America ring name, was a perfect example of this.

Yes, Hogan was a great nostalgia act, but one can only do so much with a guy that has been on TV for so long over the decades.
