• WWE Has Changed SmackDown Star’s Name
On a recent episode of SmackDown, Shinsuke Nakamura made his return and defeated Madcap Moss.
Prior to the match, Moss’ real-life girlfriend Emma motivated him by saying the following:
“Don’t listen to them, listen to me. They should be cheering for you out there. Shinsuke doesn’t even compare to you.
He’s not the one that won the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, you have. He doesn’t have your looks, he doesn’t have your strength, Shinsuke has nothing on you. You need this.
Tonight, you’re going to go out there and prove why you will be a top pick in this year’s Draft.”
After losing the match, Moss tried to attack Shinsuke, but the 2018 Men’s Royal Rumble winner countered and locked-in the Arm Bar, which led to Emma pulling Moss out of the ring to save him.
Moss & Emma are going to be a heel pairing on WWE programming from now on.
Also, WWE has given Madcap Moss his old name back: Riddick Moss. The change has been made official on their website as well:
