A Possible Name For Averno’s Debut, Why WWE Changed PPV Name

  • Share

According to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE hopes that Averno will be debuting with the company without the use of his mask. A name being tossed around for him is Rey Ortiz II, although many aren’t happy with the name because he would share the first name with Rey Mysterio.

The reason why WWE decided to change the name of their October pay-per-view from Uprising to Vengeance is because they found out that indy promotion Dragon Gate USA uses that name for their pay-per-views. They then decided to go with the Vengeance name because of the popularlity of the name in a recent poll on their website. The event was dropped in 2007 due to the criticism it earned after Chris Benoit failed to show up at the event.
