Theory To Get His First Name Back?


As previously reported, many people within WWE indicated that Johnny Gargano being brought back without a name change seems to be a sign that Vince McMahon’s name change edict is no longer in effect.

McMahon previously issued a memo to talent noting that he didn’t want performers using their full real names, or names used before signing with WWE.


This led to sudden changes like Austin Theory becoming Theory, WALTER becoming Gunther, Pete Dunne becoming Butch, Raul Mendoza becoming Cruz Del Toro and many more.

Theory may have had his name reverted as he is listed on advertising for upcoming WWE live events under the Austin Theory name. He is still listed as Theory on WWE’s website.
