In a digital exclusive posted by WWE, Catanzaro confirmed the name change and gave the following explanation:

"Everyone knows me as Kacy Catanzaro, and that is me, but there are parts of me that people haven't seen -- except maybe Kayden -- where I get to do what I want, and that's shootin' back straight whiskey and lettin' loose. Kayden isn't the only one that can party and shake a little somethin'. That is Katana Chance, and that is the energy I'll be bringing to NXT from now on," she said.

It was also announced that Chance & Kayden Carter would take on Yulisa Leon & Valentina Feroz on the April 26 episode of NXT 2.0.
