Robert Stone Shows Off His New Name, Act At NXT Cocoa (Videos)

As noted, several NXT Superstars recently underwent name changes. Among them was 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. Strauss noted that he was not a manager, but instead a "brand."

On Saturday night at the aforementioned NXT live event in Cocoa, FL., Strauss' "brand" changed once again.

Strauss appeared at the NXT Cocoa show last night as the repackaged "Robert Stone" manager character.

This time, Stone is serving as the heel manager for the tag-team of Dan Matha (Dorian Mak) and Riddick Moss. The duo is collectively known as "The Outliers."

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