Two more familiar faces have taken on new handles, as of NXT's Thursday night live event in Largo, FL.
DJ Z, a two-time X Division champion with IMPACT Wrestling that also wrestled as Zema Ion across a seven-year run with the company, is now known as Joaquin Wilde.
Wilde, after officially departing from IMPACT at the very end of 2018, reported to the Performance Center last month, and wrestled his debut match Thursday night, defeating Kona Reeves.
Shane Strickland, holder of top belts in places like EVOLVE, Combat Zone Wrestling, and Major League Wrestling, had previously wrestled several untelevised NXT matches under his usual name.
On Thursday, however, he began working under the name of Isaiah Scott, teaming with Brennan Williams to defeat Brendan Vink and Jermaine Haley
