Backstage News on Tamyra Mensah-Stock's New Name

Backstage News on Tamyra Mensah-Stock’s New Name – As noted, former Olympic gold medalist Tamyra Mensah-Stock made her highly anticipated television debut at the WWE NXT Level Up taping on July 2, 2024. Competing under the ring name Tyra Mae Steele, she secured a victory over Wren Sinclair in singles action.

The decision to give Mensah-Stock a ring name instead of using her real name has raised eyebrows among fans and insiders alike. In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that this move has sparked curiosity even within the company. Meltzer explained the rationale behind the decision, noting, “The feeling is that the average WWE fan doesn’t know her name, so they should give her a name they know, unlike with Jade Cargill, where the idea was that the average WWE fan already knows her name and that name has cache.”

This decision reflects WWE’s strategy to build brand recognition for new talents who may not yet be household names among their audience. Meltzer further noted that WWE’s interest in Mensah-Stock surged significantly due to her Olympic gold medal achievement, which added a prestigious accolade to her profile.

NXT Level Up airs every Friday night on Peacock, following WWE SmackDown. With her impressive debut, Tyra Mae Steele (formerly Tamyra Mensah-Stock) is poised to make a significant impact in the WWE, leveraging her athletic prowess and Olympic pedigree to captivate the wrestling audience.
