The announcement was made in a promotional video from WWE earlier today. Carter said in the video that with a new start comes a new name and Nathan Frazer will become a champion. No storyline reason was given for why he is changing his name. Here is the video.

Ben Carter became a standout of AEW Dark last year with a number of impressive matches, including a win over Lee Johnson. Instead of joining AEW, he elected to sign with NXT UK where he has been wrestling since.
He has won a handful of matches and unsuccessfully challenged Jordan Devlin for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship.
His old trainer Seth Rollins has also spoken about how proud he is of Carter’s success in NXT UK. You can read more about that here.
