Injured WWE Star Gets A Slight Name Change? WWE

An injured WWE star has gotten a slight name change.

As previously reported, Robert Roode has been working as a producer backstage during WWE Raw and SmackDown TV tapings over the past month.

Roode hasn’t wrestled since June 2022 and has undergone multiple neck surgeries during his WWE hiatus.

Fightful Select (subscription required) provided an update, noting that Roode has internally went from being listed as “Robert” to “Bobby.”

The former NXT Champion has gone from being known as “Robert Roode” to “Bobby Roode” back and forth throughout his time in TNA before signing with WWE in 2016.

The report notes that in the past, Vince McMahon insisted on Petey Williams being called “Pete” backstage, so it could be a Vince call with Roode’s name change.

Bobby Roode isn’t the only former TNA original working as a producer as of late as Nick Aldis has also started working as a producer backstage on a shadow basis.

WWE will hold their next premium live event with Payback this Saturday, September 2 live from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For the full lineup for the show, click here.
