Five NXT wrestlers get new WWE names


It appears that a handful of NXT wrestlers have gotten their new WWE names.

The WWE Performance Center's website lists new names for Trevor Lee, Jessie Elaban, Eric Bugenhagen, Adrian Jaoude, and Luke Menzies. Lee is now listed as Cameron Grimes, Elaban is Jessi Kamea, Bugenhagen is Rik Bugez, Jaoude is Arturo Ruas, and Menzies is Ridge Holland.

Lee reported to the WWE Performance Center this February. He's been wrestling at NXT house shows in Florida but has yet to make his television debut for the brand.

Elaban made her WWE TV debut in last year's Mae Young Classic, losing to Taynara Conti in the first round.

Bugenhagen has gotten over on NXT house shows with his rock star/air guitar gimmick. He's also appeared on one NXT TV episode and took part in a battle royal at Worlds Collide as part of WrestleMania Axxess this April.

In addition to wrestling for NXT, Jaoude has become a regular for EVOLVE over the past few months.

Menzies is a former rugby player who transitioned to professional wrestling. He joined WWE in 2018.
