WWE Superstar Austin Theory

Update On WWE Superstars Getting Their Original Names Back


As we previously reported here on eWn, a few WWE Superstars were given their first names back after Triple H took over as Head of Creative. Theory is now back to being named Austin Theory, and Riddle was given his full name after former WWE CEO Vince McMahon removed it.

Fightful has provided more information regarding the name changes in the company. According to the report, Theory initially favored the name change; however, WWE opted to give him his first name back because Triple H thought it was more realistic for him to be called Austin Theory.


While Theory and Riddle have their original names back, two wrestlers who appear won’t be getting theirs are Butch and Seth “Freakin” Rollins. The report notes that Pete Dunne is still listed internally as Butch and Rollins as “Freakin” Rollins. Additionally, T-Bar (formerly known as Dominik Dijakovic) is still listed with the name given to him when he debuted on the main roster.
