Sheamus' Faction On WWE SmackDown Named 'The Brawling Brutes'

The group of Sheamus, Ridge Holland, and Butch officially has a name.

On the May 20 episode of WWE SmackDown, it was revealed that the faction will be called 'The Brawling Brutes.' It was assumed for a while that 'Fight Night' was their name but alas that will just remain a catchphrase.

The new moniker was confirmed by Sheamus and WWE, who posted a new match graphic for next Friday night (seen above) during this morning's edition of Talking Smack.

Butch was defeated by Xavier Woods last night but attacked him on the ramp after the match. Woods issued a challenge to The Brawling Brutes, saying he and Kofi will bring a partner that they won't be happy to see. Sheamus was unbothered by the statement on Talking Smack, saying regardless of who they bring, it'll be a short party for the New Day.
