Ruby Riott has seemingly revealed the ring name she’ll be using going forward.
The former WWE star changed her handle and name on Instagram to ‘Ruby Soho.’ This is also the name of a song by American punk rock band Rancid. As of this writing, she hasn’t changed her information on Twitter.
Many fans expected her to go by the name Heidi Lovelace which she used before signing with WWE. However, she did talk about the name during an interview with the Wrestling Perspective podcast.
This is where she noted that the name Ruby means more to her at this point and also revealed that she never picked the name Heidi Lovelace. Instead, at the time, the name was given to her by the people who trained her. Riott said most people couldn’t properly pronounce the name and she wasn’t a fan of it.
Riott joined WWE and was placed in NXT back in 2016. Riott made her main roster debut alongside Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan by attacking both Becky Lynch and Naomi in 2017.
Riott was released by WWE earlier this month due to budget cuts.
