Dexter Lumis is one of the most unique characters in WWE history, and during a recent interview with MCW Backstage Pass revealed, among other things, that his fighting name was inspired by Dr. Loomis from the Halloween movie franchise.

“It's just, hey, you get an email and it's like, hey, send us five names. Anything but your own name and intellectual property. So basically did not initially have the name 'Dexter Lumis'. I had it on the list. I don't even know if it was Dexter Lumis, it may have been like 'Dexter Shawshank' or something. But the writers seemed to like 'Dexter Lumis'. Lumis was a play on Dr. 'Loomis' from Halloween, we just wrote it differently for trademark reasons and whatnot."
