NXT's Brendan Vink now has a new in-ring name.

Vink announced on Sunday night that his name in WWE is now Tony Modra. Modra was among the names that WWE filed trademarks for last week.

Tony Modra is also the name of a former Australian rules football player. Vink is from Adelaide, Australia.

Vink made several appearances on Raw this March and April, teaming with Shane Thorne in the weeks after WWE television first moved to the Performance Center due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They were aligned with MVP and got one win against Ricochet & Cedric Alexander. Vink & Thorne also teamed together in a loss to Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch on NXT TV this March.

Thorne is now part of RETRIBUTION and is going by the name Slapjack.

Vink used Elliot Sexton as his in-ring name before joining WWE. His signing was announced by WWE in February 2019.
