Numerous NXT talents have, this week, gone through rather radical name changes ahead of their respective NXT roster inclusions.
The talents and their new names are as follows:
Adrian Jaoude is now Arturo Ruas
Trevor Lee is now Cameron Grimes
Jessie Elaban is now Jessi Kamea
Luke Menzies is now Ridge Holland
And arguably the most surprising name change of the bunch is that going forward, Eric Bugenhagen will now be Rik Bugez. Bugenhagen has been featured previously on NXT and is very over with the fans, so the name change almost seems unnecessary.
