There’s been talk in recent weeks about WWE setting up their own booking agency for their wrestlers. Those wrestlers would be able to use their WWE name since the company is handling things for them.
For others who are not booked through WWE, they would have to use their real name for non-wrestling roles and media appearances.
Sasha Banks is still using @SashaBanksWWE as her Twitter and Instagram handle but the name on the accounts has been changed to Mercedes Varnado, which is her real name. TV Guide also referenced her by her real name in a new article about her role on Disney’s The Mandalorian.
Banks is not the only WWE Superstar in demand for non-wrestling roles. Xavier Woods, under the name Austin Creed, has signed on to be part of the G4 relaunch in 2021.
Charlotte Flair signed on with the VanyerSports agency last month and it looks like she may use the name Ashley Flair for non-WWE roles since she trademarked that name late last year.
