Former WWE superstars The Ascension (Konnor & Viktor) confirmed in a recent interview with WrestleZone that going forward, they will collectively be known as Big Kon and Vik, with the tag team renamed as The Awakening.

Speaking about the name change, Vik had the following to say, “We were going to use FKA for the time being, just because we liked that, we knew everybody just knew us as The Ascension for the longest time and to jump off of that, we couldn’t really figure it out for a while. We had been talking back and forth so much, going through all of these other ideas and it kind of got presented to us the other week via interview.”

Big Kon followed that up in regards to the name change stating, “The Awakening, it’s like it is the next step up from The Ascension, it’s still got that connection, so the fans can understand it and it is something that Vik and I think is badass regardless.”
