NXT Superstar Gets New Ring Name

Last week, we reported that the WWE had filed two new trademarks for the names “Ashante Adonis” and “Desmond Troy”. We now know who “Desmond Troy” is.

During this week’s episode of NXT, former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa had a quick match with NXT talent Denzel Dejournette. However, Dejournette was now introduced as “Desmond Troy.”

As we noted, ‘Ashante Adonis’ is currently being used by Tehuti Miles. It looks like Desmond Troy is officially Dejournette’s ring name now.

Troy is a collegiate wrestler signed in 2018. He has had a few matches on NXT live events and been used as enhancement talent on Raw and SmackDown.
