– As noted before, WWE has signed former Ring of Honor star Claudio Castagnoli to a developmental deal and he is now working as Antonio Cesaro in FCW.
This has led to speculation about the status of Claudio’s partner Chris Hero. Word is that Hero is still going through the long process of signing a contract. Claudio happened to finish his paperwork and medical clearance ahead of Hero, so he’s began working for WWE already.
Hero is still on WWE’s radar, just going through the signing process. His debut in FCW will most likely happen soon, unless something comes up.
– On a related note, independent women’s wrestler Britani Knight is reportedly beginning with FCW soon under her WWE developmental deal. Knight is currently finishing up independent bookings. She will be appearing at the SHIMMER tapings in early October.
Knight has received several WWE tryouts in the UK over the years and was reported to have signed a deal in April of this year but released a statement online denying it. The 18 year old is from the UK’s famous Knight wrestling family. No word yet when she will debut for FCW but it will be before the end of the year.
