Brian Pillman Jr’s contract with AEW expired earlier this year and he made his way to the WWE Performance Center. He finally made his way to NXT a while ago and is slowly establishing himself as a star there. Now known as Lexis King, he continues to change as a character.

Lexis King brought a whole new look after becoming a star in NXT, something that has made him become a subject of ridicule. That’s not all as Lexis King decided to put his foot down regarding what fans call themselves.

Lexis King already revealed a new nickname for his fans after rejecting the ‘Registered Lex Offenders’ name. Lexis King squared off against Dion Lennox in the Men’s Breakout Tournament and won the match.

Before the bout, the WWE on TNT Sports Twitter handle shared a GIF of King dubbed with the nickname ‘The DRAMA KING.’ This prompted former WWE Superstar Aiden English to respond to WWE using his nickname for King.
