** Randall, Randal, after [[Wrestling/CMPunk CM Punk]] started derogatorily calling him that on tv.tv. (In an odd ''inversion'', Randy's real name actually ''is'' "Randal.", so it's a case of a guy's ring name being a close derivative of his legal name and his FanNickname of his ring name being his legal name.)

*** Actually an unnamed fan coined it, and Big E's tweet was applauding that fan being FAR more creative and original than the "Ryblack" crowd, as he thinks the latter is too on the nose and boring.

* Lemmings/Sheep - Semi-derogatory Nicknames for WCW and WWE loyalists, respectively; coined during the MondayNightWars era. WCW "lemmings" were willing to follow Bishoff, Hogan and co. off a cliff. Sheep followed whatever insanity Vince [=McMahon=] threw onto WWE programming without question. Large chunks of both fanbases wore said nicknames with defiant pride.

** The 2016 brand split inspired a new [=SmackDown=] Six: Wrestling/BeckyLynch, Wrestling/AlexaBliss, Wrestling/NatalyaNeidhart, {{Wrestling/Carmella}}, {{Wrestling/Naomi}} and [[Wrestling/BellaTwins Nikki Bella]]. All six feuded with each other and were considered to greatly outperform the women of Raw - who had bigger stars. Wrestling/EvaMarie and {{Wrestling/Maryse}} who were also part of Smackdown were not included in this.[[note]]Eva was suspended only a month after her Smackdown debut and thus not in the division. Maryse meanwhile was an acting valet for The Miz rather than a wrestler.[[/note]]
