Former Impact Wrestling star explains the meaning behind his new WWE name

Former Impact Wrestling X-Divison Champion DJZ will now be known as Joaquin Wilde under the WWE NXT banner.

The change was reflected on his social media accounts before his live event debut on Thursday night. Wilde finished up with Impact Wrestling in late December and signed with WWE a few months later.

Wilde took to his official Twitter account where he explained the meaning behind his new WWE name by writing the following:

“I had an uncle named Joaquin. He LOVED pro wrestling, always wanted to be a wrestler but those opportunities didn’t exist in the Philippines. I chose this name because by living my dream, I’m also living his dream. And WILD(E) is the perfect word to describe the way I wrestle!”

WWE held an NXT live event on Saturday night in Fort Pierce, FL. At this show in the opening contest, he beat Garza Jr in a singles match.
