WWE announced the release of Ruby Riott on June 2nd along with Aleister Black, Braun Strowman, Lana, Murphy, and Santana Garrett.
Ruby Riott seems to have revealed her new ring name that she will be using going forward, as she changed her display name on Instagram to Ruby Soho. Ruby recently spoke to The Wrestling Perspective podcast and talked about how much the name “Ruby” means to her and noted that she will not be going by her former ring name Heidi Lovelace again.
“A lot of people think that I’m going back to Heidi Lovelace. There are a multitude of reasons why I don’t want to do that. I was not a fan of that name. It was given to me by the people who trained me in the backyard. They were watching Raw and a commercial for The Hills came on and they were like ‘Heidi, that’s a name’ and they gave it to me.”
“Nobody ever pronounced Lovelace correctly. Why come up with a wrestling name that people can’t pronounce? That’s a terrible idea. A lot of people thought I was going to go back to it. I have no intentions of going back to Heidi Lovelace. I am shopping for a new name I would like to keep [the name Ruby] if it’s possible. I feel like it fits me. Ruby came from Ruby Soho and that’s dear to my heart.”
