Oh yeah, him. The right name is one of the most important things a wrestler can have. Going by the wrong or even a bad name can ruin a wrestler’s career and it can take a few tries to get it right. One of the weirdest things to see is a wrestler go from a good name to a bad one, but that does happen fairly often. Now though, we might be seeing the return of a good name.
WWE is running a live event in Manchester, New Hampshire this weekend. The venue’s website is advertising several WWE stars for the show, including Austin Theory. This would be a return of Theory’s first name, which was taken away earlier this year, following Steve Austin attacking Theory at WrestleMania 38. WWE has yet to confirm such a change and there is a chance that this is based off of material WWE provided before the name change.
Opinion: I’m not sure if this is going to be an official change but I would certainly hope it is. Theory is a talented star but the one name moniker really doesn’t work for him. The name Austin Theory sounded great and it allows like someone you could see as a top star. I would hope that WWE is giving him the first name back, as it is something that shouldn’t have been taken away.
What do you think of Theory? How much would the name change help? Let us know in the comments below.
