Backstage WWE News: Monty Brown, Big Injury, Vince & More

Credit: Various

Apparently it was Vince McMahon's idea to change Monty Brown's name to Marquis Cor Von reports Mike Johnson. Vince wanted a name that he could own and trademark and since Monty Brown is his real name that wouldn't work. Dave Lagana was strongly against this move and even though he's the head ECW writer he really had no say in the matter. The plan right now is to build Marquis up as a challenger to Lashley and the ECW Title at some point possibly Wrestlemania.

Johnson is reporting as well that Bob Holly has been injured yet again. He has nerve damage in his arm and there is no word at this time on how long he will be out.
