Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter-- According to the official website of WWE developmental promotion Florida Championship Wrestling, the wrestler known as Chris Hero has been officially named Kassius Ohno. His newly added profile page is available here.
The independent wrestling circuit standout recently reached a developmental contract agreement with WWE after passing a field of medical tests. Hero and tag team partner Claudio Castagnoli were offered contracts last summer after participating in a private workout with company officials. Castagnoli signed but Hero did not due to naturally elevated testosterone/epitestosterone levels, according to the Wrestling Observer. WWE won't sign individuals who test positive for steroids in their drug testing.
"It took forever and a ton of testing to prove the reading was actually natural and it was quite the process," the Observer wrote of WWE signing Hero.
WWE premiered an updated intro on Monday's Raw SuperShow and the over two-year-old shot of Bourne performing Air Bourne was noticeably removed. He is currently serving a sixty-day suspension for his second violation of WWE's Talent Wellness Program.
