WWE recently brought in a new crop of NXT Superstars to the Performance Center and another popular name from the indies debuted last night for the company. However, he wrestled under a different name.
Jonah Rock wrestled under the name Jermaine Haley at the NXT house show on Saturday night while making his debut. The good news for him is that Jermaine Haley is his real name. So it was likely a very easy transition for him to make.
Haley lost to Riddick Moss at the event, but it was still a good place to start on his WWE journey. We really do expect big things from the Australian.
It really is no big surprise that WWE would want Jonah Rock to change his name. After all, WWE already has a Rock. You can check out some highlights of Jermaine Haley below, he might have been performing as Jonah Rock in those clips, but it’s the same wrestler.
