Introduction

If you’re a fan of wrestling, there are few ways you can pay better tribute to the legends of the ring than to give your dog a wrestling inspired name. It may seem that, outside the likes of Road Dogg or Junkyard Dog, wrestlers and dogs may not have all that much in common, but we see it differently. Both often like to be the center of attention. Both like to do nefarious things when others aren’t looking. Both tend to have big personalities. And best of all, whether they’re on TV or setting right next to you, both are about as reliable as can be, which, when all attributes are combined, make for that many more reasons why you should give your dog a wrestling inspired name.

Wrestling Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The hardest part about finding a wrestling themed dog name is making sure it’s appropriate. After all, wrestlers didn’t build their personas off of nothing. Most of them had aesthetic or personal qualities that helped them form the basis of their characters, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t do the same while naming your dog. Make a list of their most outstanding traits and quirks and then run through our list (or one of your own) and see what stands out to you the most. 

For instance, if your dog is a notorious thief or happens to cheat at games you play with them, then Eddie or Guerrero might be suitable, as his catchphrase was “I lie! I cheat! I steal!” If their favorite toy is a stuffed or rubber snake, then the names Jake and Roberts, after Jake “the Snake” Roberts would certainly fit. If they are particularly large, then Andre, after Andre the Giant, Kane or Cast would all be good choices. 

There are a ton of ways you can go from their look to their personality or even just a great anecdote that may tie into a particular wrestler, move, or theme. Get creative and find something that fits their personality, much as the greats did with their own in-ring personas.
