NXT star Shotzi Blackheart has revealed what she’d have changed her name to if WWE made her rebrand upon signing with the company.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Blackheart commented on the transition from the independent scene to WWE, saying:
“Deep down, within me, I had a feeling they weren’t going to rebrand me. I feel like, you just can’t. I’m just too loud. You can’t contain me too much. I did get told by a lot of people, ‘Oh man, you’re going to have to change your name, you’re going to have to change your gimmick. You won’t be able to do this or do that.’ So it was great to come here and learn that everyone was on-board with what I already had going on. I’d already done it on the indies, and it was working, so why mess with it?”
She went on to add that if she did have to change it, she was thinking about the name ‘Christine Fury’, saying:
“I always thought I could come out and be Christine Fury, an ode to one of my favorite movies, Christine. She’s a demon car named Christine and she’s a Plymouth Fury.”
Blackheart is in action on tonight’s episode of NXT TV, as she and Tegan Nox will challenge Bayley and Sasha Banks for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship.
