Former WWE Star Reveals Origin Of New Ring Name

Former WWE star Wesley Blake recently revealed the origin of his new ring name, Westin Blake.

Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Blake revealed that his new ring name is a combination of his real-life last name and his brother’s name. He said:

“I’m going by Westin Blake. When I was in NXT the first time, I pitched a bunch on names. I was always told it’s best if you can have a name that you can connect with. I have an older brother named Blake, so that was a big driving factor. Most of my life I have been called Weston, because that’s my last name. When I gave them the list of NXT names, Wesley Blake was the winner. They had three or four on there, I can’t remember them but they were not that good.”

Blake had been part of WWE for several years where he was a former NXT Tag Team Champion. He had been part of The Forgotten Sons with Steve Cutler and Jaxson Ryker before he was released on April 15, 2021.
