Skip Sheffield/WWE Update: Returning To The Company Under New Name?

  • Share

A fan who ran into former NXT contestant Skip Sheffield posted a photo of the WWE star on his Facebook page and noted that when he talked to him, he said he will soon be making a WWE return under the name “Ryback.” WWE recently trademarked the name, which suggests that the company may be soon bringing him back under a new name.

Sheffield was removed from the roster page last week, leading to speculation that he may have been through with the company. However, it should be noted that WWE CEO and Chairman, Vince McMahon, was a big fan of his work before he got injured. At one point, former WWE creative team member, John Piermarini, noted that McMahon felt that Sheffield could eventually be “the next John Cena.”
