Several WWE Stars Debut With New Ring Names

Several WWE Stars Debut With New Ring Names WWE

We’ve got yet another update regarding the recent influx of new WWE talent debuting in NXT with their new names.

As we’ve covered plenty, WWE recently filed trademarks for the names Trey Bearhill, Kiyah Saint, Tyriek Igwe, Izzi Dame, Tyson DuPont and Karmen Petrovic.

As we predicted, Dame (real name Franki Strefling) and Petrovic (real name Monika Klisara) have made their debuts on NXT Level Up over the past couple of weeks, and now we can add three more to that list.

During the Level Up tapings before last night’s August 1 NXT, Bearhill, Igwe and DuPont all made their debuts.

Trey Bearhill, real name Tiller Bucktrot, is a former offensive lineman at the University of Tulsa.

During the Level Up tapings, he debuted in singles action in a loss to Myles Borne.

As for Igwe and DuPont, they debuted as a tag team.

Both Tyriek Igwe, real name Chukwusom Enekwechi, and Tyson DuPont, real name Rickssen Opont, are former shot put specialists.

Their Level Up debut resulted in a loss to Edris Enofe and Malik Blade.

This leaves Kiyah Saint as the only recently trademarked name that hasn’t debuted on Level Up yet.

Saint, real name Harleigh White, came into WWE as a track athlete.

The other matches taped were Gigi Dolin scoring a win over Tatum Paxley, and Fallon Henley defeating Izzi Dame.

Given Level Up usually features three matches, it’s unclear if all four will air on this coming Friday’s episode – usually when four matches are taped, it means NXT is going to have a pre-taped episode soon rather than live and they need to get a couple of extra Level Up matches in the can before having a week off, but we’ll keep you updated on whether that’s the case this time around.
