Two wrestlers had their names changed at the NXT tapings on Wednesday night. Former MMA fighter and Tough Enough competitor Daria Berenato is now using the name Sonya Deville. Former United States Marine Macey Estrella will now be known as Lacey Evans.
WWE has high hopes for Deville, who is the company’s first openly gay female performer. She hasn’t been seen on TV since December but it looks like the company is going forward with her push. If they play their cards right with her, then they will have another top female babyface on their hands. Evans started wrestling at the NXT live events back in October.
