Tommaso Ciampa is the latest WWE star to lose his first name.
Tonight on Monday Night Raw, Mustafa Ali returned to in-ring action and won against The Miz. After the match ended, cameras followed Ali as he celebrated up the rampway and around the stage area. Ali was then attacked from behind by Ciampa.
The announcers were specifically calling him by only his last name. The name change is a result of Vince McMahon’s edict to make changes to anyone who uses their real name or a name that was not created by WWE. In Ciampa’s case, hie real first name is Tommaso.
Last week, Austin Theory had his first name removed. Others like Humberto Carrillo and Angel Garza have also had their names shortened in recent months.
