After being announced in the latest group of WWE signings to the Performance Center, an NXT talent has been given a new name by the company.
Rust Taylor, real name Russ Taylor, will now be known as Tyler Rust in the world of WWE.
Taylor appeared on-screen during the Thatch-As-Thatch-Can segment with Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa on NXT TV this past Wednesday and was referred to as Tyler Rust.
WWE filed to trademark Tyler Rust with the United States Patent & Trademark Office on December 2, which is confirmation enough that it will indeed be his new name going forward.
