The name changes of pretty well known wrestlers is a little annoying (because we’re used to the old names) but when you look at it this way it totally makes sense.

Im not sure if im biased to the old names but the new names like Isaiah Scott for Strickland, Cameron Grimes for Lee and Joaquin Wilde for DJZ sound alot worse. Almost like jobber names

He had a cool name and they give him the most generic name imaginable. I cant stand this company. How the fuck you gonna draw any money as Isaiah Scott?

The only way I can see this being redeemable is if they give him some Baller gimmick or something.

Btw, Imagine the Dash And Joaquin getting together to form a tag team them being called Wilde and Wilder!!!!!

Isiah Scott?

Not a bad name, but freaking Shane Strickland. That's an awesome name there.

Isiah as a first name isn't bad, but Scott just seems generic. I wonder if the name has personal connection to Strickland though.

Per his Twitter account, Garza Jr. is now "Angel Garza." Was expecting him to go Carrillo as well and tag with Humberto. Maybe Humberto goes back to Garza.

Angel Garza, that's actually a cool name IMO.

Jordan Myles isn't bad. But Jonah Rock going to Bronson Reed? Lol, that's rough.

Re: Five NXT Stars get New Names

It's funny how every name in that list is a downgrade from their previous names.

Re: Five NXT Stars get New Names

Eric Bugenhagen was a great name. He's dead on arrival with his new shit name. This company is so garbage.

Re: Five NXT Stars get New Names

Bronson for whatever reason is a popular name for NXT wrestlers - James Bronson, Bronson Matthews and now Bronson Reed.

Probably the Tom Hardy movie of that name as they're all too young for Charles Bronson to be the reference. I'm the in-between age where Bronson Pinchot (Balki Bartokomous from 80's sitcom Perfect Stangers) is my reference point to that name.
