WWE Changes Name to DJZ, Another SmackDown Event Canceled

Another SmackDown Event Canceled, WWE Changes Name to DJZ
- The WWE SmackDown event scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 26 from the Tony's Pizza Events Center in Salina, Kansas has been nixed. A scheduling conflict was cited as the reason for the cancellation.

WWE has canceled a number of blue brand live events scheduled for Monday nights as of late, due to the WWE Wild Card Rule and SmackDown Superstars being used on RAW. This is the first weekend live event to be nixed since the Wild Card Rule was established, but it should be noted that this live event was scheduled to take place after the SmackDown TV show moves to Friday nights on Fox beginning October 4. As we've noted, SmackDown will move to a Thursday through Sunday road schedule this fall. They currently run Saturday through Tuesday. RAW will continue to run Friday through Monday as WWE has ran a four-show per week tradition for decades now.

- As noted a couple of days ago, WWE has changed the names of several NXT wrestlers.

Today it was revealed that former Impact Wrestling X-Divison Champion DJZ will now be known as Joaquin Wilde. The change is being reflected on his social media accounts.

As you can see below, he has also changed his look ahead of his live event debut.

Wilde finished up with Impact Wrestling in late December and it was widely expected that WWE would be his next destination. He signed with WWE a few months later and reported to the Performance Center last month.
