WWE Performance Center talent Parker Boudreaux is now going as Gunnar Harland.
Harland already made the change to his social media accounts and made the announcement in a recent post.
Last month, Harland made his NXT debut, appearing as one of the security guards for a face-to-face segment with Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly.
On September 7, WWE trademarked his new name with The United States Patent and Trademark Office.
It looks like some other stars also received a name change as four other ring names were trademarked on the same date: Trick Williams (aka Matrick Belton), Tony D’Angelo, Dante Chen, and Persia Pirotta (aka Steph De Lander).
Persia is the new ring name for Steph De Lander. She appeared on this week’s WWE NXT as a friend of Indi Hartwell in the bachelorette party segment. The Australian wrestler signed with WWE this past March.
Trick is the new ring name for Matrick Belton. He was signed in the February WWE Performance Center Class and has a background in college/pro football before getting into the indies. He appeared on SmackDown earlier this year as one of Apollo Crews’ elite Nigerian guards.
As noted, Bronson Rechsteiner, the son of pro wrestling legend Rick Steiner, will apparently be going by the name “Rex Steiner” going forward.
