Butch, a WWE wrestler, made his SmackDown debut in March and instantly wowed fans with his new mononym.
In NXT, WWE fans previously referred to Butch as Pete Dunne, and some criticised WWE's decision to change his name.
Butch said he anticipated the reaction to his new character on the internet, but he expects fans to give it a shot.
"It was the biggest concern to go into a situation like this, knowing the outcome."
"I just hope that people will give it the chance and the opportunity to see what it might be, and I'm still in the process myself, to be honest. There's a lot of people today who say they prefer [Butch] more than what I've done in the past."
Butch has had an opportunity to demonstrate more personality than in the past, and he's glad that fans are seeing another side to him.
"I feel like I've been able to demonstrate a different range of abilities, a different style of performance that people aren't used to seeing with me," said Butch.
"I was always known for the in-ring work, and obviously there's been a lot more character-driven work. But I still have that ability, and I still have that quality of work that I'm excited to display."
"I hope that in the next weeks and months and hopefully at Clash At The Castle I'll be able to demonstrate that I'm still the same guy as the Butch character. I'm hoping that people will like it."
