Kacy Catanzaro Explains Reason For Name Change On WWE NXT 2.0

The name changes continue to roll out in WWE, this time in NXT 2.0 with Kacy Catanzaro.

Earlier this week, it was reported that both Kay Lee Ray and Catanzaro would be undergoing name changes in WWE NXT 2.0. Now the latter has been confirmed during a digital exclusive backstage segment from last night’s show.

Kacy Catanzaro (now named Katana Chance) and Kayden Carter set up a tag team match next week with Yulisa Leon & Valentina Feroz due to both teams wanting a shot at Toxic Attraction and the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship.

Catanzaro immediately addressed the elephant in the room and did her best to explain why she was now going by the name Katana Chance, noting that it was more about showing a new side to the NXT fans.

“First, let’s talk about this Mackenzie — everyone knows me as Kacy Catanzaro. And that is me, but there are parts of me that people haven’t seen, except maybe Kayden, where I get to do what I want,” she explained. “And that’s shooting back straight whiskey and letting loose. Kayden isn’t the only one that can party and shake a little something. That is Katana Chance and that is the energy I’ll be bringing to NXT from now on.”

While we aren’t sure where we will see Kay Lee Ray pop up next, be it NXT 2.o, RAW, or SmackDown. It appears to be confirmed that she will be going by the name Alba Fyre when we see her again on WWE programming.
