Male or female, one thing WWE likes to do to most of their signees when they arrive through the door is give them a new name. Very few Superstars get the opportunity to wrestle in WWE under their real name, and even fewer are allowed to use a name that made them famous in another wrestling company.

In terms of the latter of those, there have been a few exceptions recently. AJ Styles was allowed to keep the name that made him famous on the independent scene, as was Shinsuke Nakamura. It would have been foolish of WWE to change that.

As mentioned though not many WWE Superstars have the same ring name as their real name. On the female side of things, there are very few women who have been afforded that luxury, and here are five of those lucky females.


#5 Mickie James

Mickie James is currently the elder stateswoman of the female locker room in WWE. The multiple time Women's Champion won her first title all the way back at WrestleMania 22 and has recently returned to the company to be a part of a new era in women's wrestling.

Since her return, Mickie has proved that she belongs in the current locker room as much as she belonged in the previous one during her first run. On to her name though, and you would think that a name like Mickie James would have been one invented by WWE, but it wasn't.

Mickie James is, more or less, this WWE Superstar's actual name. Since marrying GFW star Nick Aldis, her last name has become double barrelled, but that's hardly reason for her not to qualify for this particular list.
