Castagnoli, one half of the ROH tag team "The Kings of Wrestling" (along with Chris Hero), has reported to WWE developmental and will be known as "Antonio Cesaro."
Cesaro has already changed his Twitter account to reflect his new name (@AntonioCesaro) and his Twitter account description reads:
"The official twitter of Very European Antonio Cesaro. Swiss world traveler, FCW Superstar and coffee connoisseur. Universal European Uppercut Master"
At this time, there's no word on the WWE status of Chris Hero. Both men impressed WWE officials during their tryouts and the most recent talk was that they'd be brought in together as a tag team.
Back in July, Cesaro was interviewed by Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas for the Right After Wrestling radio show and had this to say about going to WWE without his ROH tag team partner Chris Hero:
"I think I would prefer to go as a package with Chris Hero. But I would be comfortable working there on my own. We have a the unique ability to perform in a singles environment and in a tag environment. I think we definitely have very good chemistry and we have greater potential as a team."
