— Former WWE wrestler Simon Gotch has a new name – Simon Grimm, as revealed by two new t-shirts he launched at his new store on Pro Wrestling Tees. Grimm, has yet to announce any plans regarding his wrestling future but the fact that he has changed his name, makes it very likely that he plans to continue wrestling either with another company or on the indie scene.
