WWE has seen many changes since Triple H took over as chief creative officer, and one of them is wrestlers getting their names back. The likes of Matt Riddle and Austin Theory have regained their first names, but there’s one that many fans would like to see removed. Seth Rollins has been working with the name ‘Freakin’ added in the middle and he admitted to BT Sport he’s ‘not exactly sure’ what the status is on that.

“Even before Triple H took over…I went to Vince specifically because I was watching something on ‘Raw’ at the time, so maybe it was like a highlight on Twitter. They just said Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins it must have been a dozen times in 30 seconds because Vince was also very careful not to use pronouns so he wanted the whole brand every time I was referenced.” , he said. “I’m like, ‘We’ve got to stop this, you’re going to scare people off, that’s not what we want.’ He said, ‘Okay, okay, okay, in comments they can refer to you as Seth or Rollins.'”

“I don’t know if Freakin’s staying or going,” Rollins said. “I’ve had a lot of names and I’m fine with it, it’s different and nobody’s really working with a strong middle name right now, which is Bret ‘The Hitman ‘Harts’, so I’m not mad at that.”
