Hey, Bleacherholics!

I just had to report this news—one of my favorite Indy wrestlers has made it to WWE and that guy is Claudio Castagnoli.

One half of the popular team Kings of Wrestling, Claudio Castagnoli has finally signed a deal, according to Ryan Clark of Wrestling Inc., and is currently preparing to head down to Florida for WWE's talent development promotion, FCW.

At this moment, WWE has changed his ring name to Antonio Cesaro. In addition, @Ccastagnoli is no longer his Twitter account. @AntonioCesaro is now Claudio's official Twitter page, so check him out there!

In regards to the other half of the Kings of Wrestling team, Chris Hero is yet to be signed. However, there was talk the duo would be brought into WWE as a tag team, as Hero also impressed WWE higher-ups during his tryout match earlier this year.

Thanks for reading!
