Ryback has been fighting the WWE when it comes to him using the name Ryback on the indy scene and now Ryback has hit them back hard!
Ryan Reeves (Ryback) revealed during his latest podcast that he is attempting to legally change his name to Ryback.
“It’s not uncharted territory, but it kind of is too in a way. I legally went and changed my name to Ryback, for many reasons, one of which it was one thing that I did not own, and I created and I used before my time with WWE. And it is something that is associated with my brand and who I am that I am very proud of. So, I went through the proper steps in Clark County in Las Vegas. And it cost a little bit of money, and I go in front of a judge September 1st. But when this airs, you know, hopefully everything is approved and I would be known as Ryback Alan Reeves moving forward.”
No word yet how WWE feels but there’s a strong chance that he won’t be returning to the company any time soon.
