This is pretty cool. I was noticing the other day that Carwin doesn't have a nickname, but it's cool that he's allowing ideas.
According to his website, "The winner of the contest will get the glory of having their name chosen, a prize pack from Warrior Wear, an iThunder iPod Boom Box from MTX Audio, and a signed signature edition tee shirt from Shane Carwin himself!"
I'm going to enter, but I'm gonna do a little more research on Carwin before I come up with one.
Here's the blog:
For all of us Shane Carwin fans, recent events that I don't have to mention have us all aboard a train ride that is barrelling to the top of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's heavyweight division! Now that Shane has stepped out into the limelight of the UFC it's time for him to have a nickname that embodies the spirit that he shows us all inside the octagon. Shane has quite often pondered on what kind of nickname would describe him best but could never find one that suited him. Well guess what?? Not only is he going to soon have a nickname but he is allowing all of his fans the opportunity to choose one for him!!
Forty-five days from now Shane will choose what nickname he likes best from this thread and this thread alone. Now, Shane is allowing this to be an open contest to all of his fans so please be respectful in your submissions because it's not everyday that you will have such a great opportunity to interact with an Ultimate Fighter. Just think, if your idea wins, you could have your nickname called out on the night that Shane Carwin has Dana White put the heavyweight belt around his waist.
The winner of the contest will get the glory of having their name chosen, a prize pack from Warrior Wear, an iThunder iPod Boom Box from MTX Audio, and a signed signature edition tee shirt from Shane Carwin himself!
Have fun everyone and remember keep it clean and respectful.(this means no curse words)

Here's my entry:
1. Shane "The Blaster" Carwin - in recognition of your alma mater's mascot.
2. Shane "The Freight Train" Carwin - because you roll over your opponents like a freight train.
3. Shane "Carnage" Carwin - you bring carnage in the ring.
4. Shane "No Pain" Carwin - because you have 1/4" thickness added to your skull.
5. Shane "The Colorado Crusher" Carwin - obvious reasons.
Congrats on the win over Gonzaga!
