Robert Stone receives name change

Apr 29, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

Another WWE NXT talent has had their name shortened.

Robert Stone is now being billed as Mr. Stone, in a change that was just made in the last week or so. Stone has tweeted with the new name this week, as seen below.

Mr. Stone’s real name is Robert Strauss, but he has used Robert Stone since signing with WWE in 2019. This latest name change comes after a recent edict from WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon.

Other recent name changes include Tommaso Ciampa to Ciampa, WWE United States Champion Austin Theory to Theory, Raul Mendoza to Cruz Del Toro, Pete Dunne to Butch, WALTER to Gunther, Marcel Barthel to Ludwig Kaiser, Kacy Catanzaro to Katana Chance, Kay Lee Ray to Alba Fyre, and Raquel Gonzalez to Raquel Rodriguez.

Stone is currently managing Von Wagner on the NXT 2.0 brand. Sofia Cromwell is also involved in their ongoing storyline.

Stay tuned for more.

    Most of these name changes are absolutely horrible…

    I’m officially done with the WWE. We watch NXT & NXT UK to familiarize ourselves with the “future” of the company, they headline PPV’s, sell merch, in video games and have action figures just to change everyone’s name, it’s ridiculous. Maybe actually build future superstars and they wouldn’t have to worry about them taking their name and becoming stars elsewhere.
