Recently signed WWE NXT wrestler is getting a new name

Last week, WWE announced its latest Performance Center class of recruits.

Among those who signed with WWE included Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz (of The Rascalz), Alex Zayne (real name Alex Brandenburg), Sojiru “Ikemen” Higuchi, Anriel Howard and Russ Taylor.

WWE wasted no time in changing the name of one wrestler and they also filed a trademark for his new identity.

On December 5th, WWE filed a new trademark for “Tyler Rust.” This will be used for Taylor, who still has his name of Rust Taylor listed on his Twitter account.

Here is the description for the trademark:

“G & S: Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information; fan club services, namely, organizing sporting events in the field of wrestling for wrestling fan club members; organizing social entertainment events for entertainment purposes for wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the field of sports entertainment.”

Taylor appeared on last Wednesday’s episode of NXT TV during Thatch-As-Thatch-Can segment.
