WWE does many weird things, but one of the weirdest can often be the changing of its wrestlers’ names.
We’ve decided to keep track of every time this happens in 2020, with the first being Murphy on February 7.
The tracker will cover every WWE brand.
How many do you think we’ll end up with come the end of December?
Previous name: Buddy Murphy
Date of change: February 7
Reason for change: “Sources tell us the change was made because the name Buddy didn’t sound like the name of a disciple, so the decision was made to drop it in order for the wrestler to fit with Seth Rollins’ new group.” (Pro Wrestling Sheet)
2. Raquel Gonzalez
Previous name: Reina Gonzalez
Date of change: February 14
Reason for change: Unknown, came ahead of aligning with Dakota Kai at NXT TakeOver: Portland.
