2-Time NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion Gigi Dolin was signed by WWE back in 2021.

WWE changes names of many wrestlers when they sign with the company. Gigi was popular with her real name “Priscilla Kelly” on the independent circuit, and got renamed to Gigi Dolin in WWE.

WWE and Gigi agreed on her current in-ring name after discussing several names.

Speaking on Drinks with Johnny, Gigi revealed that she wanted to go with the name “Gigi Aileen” initially, but WWE did not want her to use that name because of the last name being the same as the first name of American serial killer Aileen Wuornos.

“I’m trying to remember what other first names did I come up with (for my WWE run). I know that I wanted the name Gigi Aileen was one that I liked but that one didn’t pass because of Aileen Wuornos. They were like, ‘No, we’re not doing that. That’s a serial killer. You can’t do that.’

We have Joe Gacy which is in the same ballpark but, I don’t know, I get it. They’re probably like, we already have Joe Gacy coming in around the same time as me and it was like, if I came in with another serial killer name, it was probably just gonna be a little overkill maybe. I don’t know (she laughed).”
