Roman Reigns (the guy with a lot of class) is a lot of things to a lot of people. He’s a WWE main eventer, a possible new breed of bad guy, a movie bootlegger, and a dirty Undertaker-retirer. He’s also a beautiful man with a very cool name, even if it’s not his real name. (Shhhh, don’t tell anyone.)

How did he get that name, you ask? Well, he finally spilled the beans on that little nugget of info, and thankfully, it’s a far more entertaining story than the standard FCW/NXT story of “they asked me to come up with 25 first names and 25 last names, and we went from there.” It involves — as most good stories do — a released wrestler, an attempt at a one-word name, and Corey Graves.

Reigns revealed the whole tale to Chris Jericho on a recent episode of Talk is Jericho. (Transcript via Wrestling Inc.)
