Update your programs. WWE is in a state of change at the moment as there are all kinds of switches and updates taking place. This has involved a lot of the wrestlers being moved around in a bunch of different directions, some of which are a little more well received than others. Every now and then you will see WWE make a move that might leave you a bit confused, and that might be the case again.

According to PWInsider.com, Tegan Nox and Shotzi Blackheart are both permanent members of the SmackDown roster. However, Blackheart will officially be known as just Shotzi. Nox will be using her full name, but there is a chance that it could be shortened in the future. The two made their surprise debuts last week on NXT, defeating Natalya and Tamina in a non-title match.

This could be a big one. Check out what SmackDown is getting:

Shotzi and Tegan Nox debut against Natalya and Tamina: SmackDown, July 9, 2021

Bayley & Banks vs. Nox & Blackheart – Women’s Tag Team Title Match: WWE NXT, June 17, 2020

Tegan Nox & Shotzi Blackheart vs. Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez: WWE NXT, April 22, 2020

Opinion: I hope that Nox keeps her first name, as just Nox is a bit of a strange name. Blackheart is going to be hurt by losing her last name, as Shotzi doesn’t sound all that great. This is one of those things that WWE does that I just cannot understand. Maybe it has something to do with owning the name, but I really wish they would come up with a better solution than this.

What do you think of the change? How will they do on SmackDown? Let us know in the comments below.
