The Ascension are officially off of WWE’s books, taking The Wasteland and all associated wares outside of Parts Unkown and onto the indie scene. As they start to emerge in other promotions, one member is taking on a new moniker. As of yesterday, Konnor has changed his Instagram and Twitter profile to variations on Big Kon.

The former NXT Tag Team Champion is also advertising his first date outside of WWE, a tag team match against fellow NXT alumni Bull James and Bill Carr. That match will go down in Outlaw Wrestling in Brookly on Feb. 20.
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH!
The Ascension hand picked their opponents for their 1st post-WWE match
Konnor chose Bull James
Viktor chose Bill Carr
Ironically, Bull & Bill are former NYWC & ACE Tag Team Champions

Both members of the Ascension appear to be using their WWE gimmicks for this outing, which could mean that Big Kon and Viktor (or whatever name he takes on) could show up as something similar to The Ascension on a bigger stage before too long.
