Warrior is one we all know about, but I recently read that Ivan Koloff and Nikita Koloff changed theirs as well.  There has to be more...

Gino Hernandez's headstone doesn't have his given name (Charles Wolfe), it actually says "Gino Hernandez", so he may have changed his name.
I think Jesse Ventura legally changed his name also.

Rick Rude may have changed his to Ravishing Rick Rude.

Johnny Valentine legally became Johnny Valentine at some point. I think it had to be before the plane crash because every newspaper reference called him that. I assume that Greg Valentine changed from his birth name, too.

Jimmy Brawner legally changed his name to Kurt Von Brauner, and Doug (Donovan) Donnen changed his to Karl Von Brauner.

George Wagner legally became Gorgeous George, and ironically Gorgeous George Jr. (born Richard Phelps) has since legally changed his name to George Wagner.

Pretty sure Don Curtis had his last named legally changed from Beitleman to Curtis.

I think he has changed it back to Robbie Kellum but I did see his drivers license that said Gorgeous George III

What about George Steele? That isn't his real last name is it?

I think Shawn Michaels would benefit from changing his name from "Hickenbottom" lol.

Rocky Johnson must have changed his name early in his life before he had Dwayne because Dwayne Johnson is The Rock's legal name is it not?

I think Hulk Hogan's legal last name is Hogan not Bollea.

George Steele is William James Myers.

Ventura did not legally change his name. He's still James Janos. You can run for governor of Minnesota under an alias, which is amazing.

Rocky Johnson began his wrestling his wrestling career in 1964, at the age of 20. The Rock(Duane Johnson) was born on May 2, 1972, so he had some time to legally change it.

No, it's actually still Bollea.

See divorce papers between he and Linda.

He never had trouble with the Hogan part, it's the Hulk part that is a little sketchy, thus WCW only calling him Hollywood Hogan for a long time.

Marvel Comics objected to the use of the "Hulk" name, I remember Vince having to pay them to use it.
