So curious: how did we get "Brutus Beefcake" and "Val Venis" and "The Mountie"?
Not sure about Beefcake. He is allowed to use the name on certain indy shows--he may just have been "under the radar" enough.
The Mountie has a rather famous trademark history, and the WWF couldn't use that name in Canada because the RCMP objected to the gimmick.
Val Venis also has a really weird history. At one point, possibly multiple points, the WWF lost their trademark on the name because it was apparently claimed by some other guy who also had it as a legal name. I think this is why he became "Chief Morley." And some time before that, they changed his official ring name to "The Big Valboski" (as in, not just a nickname--as his actual ring name) for a very brief period, for possibly similar reasons.
"Doink" as a name is probably out. I'm not sure how FG could be prevented from releasing a card for "The Clown" or "The Wrestling Clown" if they really wanted.
