Kip Sabian Reveals What His Original In-Ring Name Was Supposed To Be

AEW Star Kip Sabian recently took part in a virtual signing with Captain’s Corner, where he discussed a number of topics such as what his original in-ring name was supposed to be.

Kip Sabian said:

“So, when I used to backyard (wrestle), I had a different name and when I started at W.A.W., the first show, they asked me what I wanted to be? ‘What do you want your name to be?’ And one of my backyard names was ‘Jett’, J, E, double T and I wanted ‘Jett’-something but there was someone else in the company called ‘Jett’ so I didn’t have ‘Jett’. So, I have no idea what I’m gonna be called… My nickname since I was a kid has always been ‘Kip’.”

Kip Sabian also discussed how he eventually became “Kip Sabian” thanks to a suggestion from Saraya.

Kip Sabian said:

“So, it was actually Saraya at the time, who, they asked me what I wanted to be called. I said, ‘Oh, I don’t mind, whatever’ and it was ‘Raya who came up with just putting Kip and I think I wrestled the first match as ‘Kip Jones’. I think it was Kip Jones… And then it went from Kip Jones to Kip Sabin because I was a Chris Sabin mark back in the day and then it went from Kip Sabin to Kip Sabian. So, I told Chris that story… when he was backstage.”
