Robert Stone At NXT Cocoa

As noted, several NXT Superstars recently underwent name changes, including former IMPACT Wrestling and Global Force Wrestling (GFW) performer Robbie E.

Robbie E. signed with WWE back in March and immediately reported to the WWE Performance Center training facility in Orlando, Florida with the latest class of developmental recruits.

On March 21st, he made his official NXT debut as a manager named Robert Strauss, which is actually Robbie E.’s real name.

Strauss debuted as the heel manager / mouthpiece for the tag-team of Rinku Singh and Saurav Gurjar at the NXT live event in Sanford, Florida.

He cut a promo before Gurjar took on Jermaine Haley (Jonah Rock) in one-on-one competition, noting that he was not a manager, but instead a “brand.”

Well, Strauss’ “brand” has changed once again.

Robert Strauss Transitions Into Robert Stone This Weekend

The new NXT performer appeared at the NXT live events this weekend as the repackaged “Robert Stone.”

Stone is serving as the heel manager for the tag-team of Dan Matha (Dorian Mak) and Riddick Moss.

Collectively, the duo is known as “The Outliers.”

NXT’s newest heel manager has updated his official Twitter page from @RobertStrauss to @RobertStoneWWE, and has been posting a number of tweets this weekend.
