Why Joe Hennig is Michael McGuillicuty on WWE NXT

Hennig is claiming that he is trying to honor his mother’s side of the family and that McGuillicuty is his mother’s maiden name. This is kayfabe, as his mother is Leonice Leonard. The name comes from Lucy’s maiden name on “I love Lucy.” Hennig wasn’t supposed to be on NXT, but when Brett Dibiase was injured, the Fortunate Sons stable never came to be. The WWE decided it was “call up or cut” time for Hennig, so he got the call to NXT.
