Rey Mysterio’s Latest Injury Not Serious?, Why WWE Dropped The Antonio From Cesaro’s Name

– Regarding Rey Mysterio possibly being injured at Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings, WWE’s internal injury report for this week came out and Rey was not listed on there. Either WWE officials don’t know if Rey is injured, it’s being kept off internal reports or the injury wasn’t significant.

– We noted before that it was a Vince McMahon decision to make changes to Big E and Cesaro’s name this past week. Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer adds that somebody within WWE thought “Antonio” sounded like the name of a guy who wasn’t tough, and that’s why he’s just being called Cesaro now.

    Ok, buddy, you can stop acting like a jackass. I don’t believe everything I read, and I’m not saying it, or anything else happened in such an absurd, sensationalized way as you’ve described it, but clearly something happened, and don’t give me an absurd excuse like not being able to print his name on merchandise. That’s RIDICULOUS, and clearly you just trying to come up with any excuse you can to dismiss me as an idiot, which I don’t appreciate. That’s grasping at straws.

    You thinking that everything makes sense in Vince McMahon’s world is way, WAY more gullible than anyone believing this rumor. Anybody who’s spent time with him will tell you he’s got some screws loose, and it’s not about “disgruntled ex employees”, especially when the same thing comes from so many people, the guy MIGHT just be a little crazy.

    You got a better reason for Vince being his usual absurd self, spit it out. All I know is that Antonio Cesaro is now factually just Cesaro, it happened, and there’s a dumb reason behind it. You clearly haven’t heard enough Vince stories if you think this is out of his normal range of behavior.

    you honestly believe this story way more than you should…

    Antonio sounds like the name of somebody who isn’t tough, but Miz won the main event of WrestleMania, Orton’s been pushed for 10 years when he looks like a gay male stripper, and the Divas champion comes to the ring skipping. Makes perfect sense.

    And it took him over 2 years to even come to this absurd revelation.

    They should have just shortened it to Toni Cesaro like on his jacket (I was wondering why they blocked his name out).

    What’s Big E Langston referred as now then?

    Any Antonio’s in the house? You wussy.
