AEW Star Adopts New Ring Name As Of Tonight’s Rampage

aew rampage logo

One of the tallest wrestlers in AEW will have a name starting on tonight’s episode of Rampage.

There has been a name change for AEW’s W. Morrissey, who will now be known as Big Bill moving forward. His real name is William Morrissey and sometimes people named William go by Bill instead, so that’s where Big Bill comes from.

Big Bill hasn’t wrestled that much on AEW television since he signed with the company in August 2022. Big Bill joined The Firm group led by Stokely Hathaway after joining AEW.

Putting “Big” in a wrestler’s name is not a new concept. Morrissey himself was known as Big Cass in his WWE career. There was a WCW wrestler named Big Josh back in the 1990s, Big John Studd was in WWE for many years, Big Show was a huge star in WWE for 20 years and Hall of Famer Big Boss Man had a long run in WWE as well.

Morrissey’s new name Big Bill was displayed by AEW in a graphic promoting a tag team match on Rampage. This week’s Rampage was taped after the December 7th episode of Dynamite in Austin, Texas.

 

The card for tonight’s episode of Rampage looks like this.

* Jon Moxley vs. Konosuke Takeshita

* Orange Cassidy will defend the AEW All-Atlantic Title against a challenger chosen by Kip Sabian

* Hikaru Shida defends the Regina Di Wave Championship vs. The Bunny

* Big Bill (W. Morrissey) and Lee Moriarty in tag team action

Ruby Soho & Tay Melo speak about their rivalry while Athena will talk about her ROH Women’s Championship match at Final Battle on Saturday, December 10th.

We will have a full review of AEW Rampage on TJRWrestling on Saturday.
