    I can’t wrap my head around a name change due to a repackaging where the person is totally different…..but they’re the same people who just up and decided to change their names? Like how does it make sense within the context of everything.

  2. What? says:

    WWE really just doesn’t care anymore. Consistency of characters, respecting fans’ intelligence, reason and logic…none of it matters. No, the only relevant factor is to stop them from using even part of their real names (Gonzalez is Raquel’s last name, even if her first is actually Victoria; Walter is his real first name; etc.) to make it easier for WWE to own the copyright. That, in twisted WWE world, is the context.

    Wtf????,, seriously this is just BS.

    Now the question has to be asked does Vince or any of the genius that came up with this crap watch their own programming. I love Kacy think she is awesome .Ms Lee had an incredible run in NXTUK as champion …please please respect tgese women

  5. Olivia says:

    No. Just no. She will always be Kay Lee Ray to me.

  6. James says:

    Same here, Olivia.

    i get why the name changes, cause for gimmick money wise and copyrights and stuff i mean they did this so long ago back in 80s 90s mid 2000s then last few years 2011 to last year really they been using real life names so……. i get why people are mad and pissed off but also see why its not that big of a super big deal. but i get it.

    Everyone understands the logic behind it in terms of copyrights and the like, but the issue they have is within the context of the story and world itself. If Jon Snow randomly started going by Jeremy Samu people wouldn’t accept it either.
