    NOO!! How could they change Claudio Castagnoli’s name?!

  2. DJ Reign says:

    ok now we just waiting on Chris Hero

  3. chris says:

    So he’ll be in developmental until 2013, and then released.

    Why do people think going to the WWE is making it big time? Because you on tv? WWE is a cookie cutter style company.WWE takes workers who are already names, gives them dumbass gimmicks, and pretty much buries them.

    I just don’t understand the name changes… yeah you then OWN the name but you didn’t make Punk go by a new name and he headlined a few TNA events…..why not do it all of the time?

  5. ILMH says:

    See…. this is what I think.

    Claudio undergoes a name change and the IWC cries bloody murder for a few months. Then suddenly, people adapt to it and complaining stops. Can’t we just skip the first step?

  6. steve says:

    Punk was far from a headliner in TNA, don’t really see why is is now to be honest.

    lets hope he gets a chance this time, instead of last time he signed in 2006

  8. deathedge says:

    To be fair… Antonio Cesaro is FAR from the worst name they’ve came up with… it’s actually kind of catchy.

    Not saying I like the name change, but meh…

  9. Cody T. says:

    Shocked, and somewhat disappointed. So glad to see he is finally going to the E and will be making better money, etc….but the odds WWE pushes him wrong is so high, its gonna be sad to watch.

  10. Nick says:

    The name change should surprise no one. WWE wants to own name rights on all their stars now, simply because it allows them to keep that name should the star leave. It makes tons of sense for the lesser knowns they sign. For someone like Danielson or now Castagnoli, it makes a whole lot less.

  11. Ian says:

    Oh look WWE comes up with another horrible name and yeah I agree that he will be in development will probably be released…he wont be mainstream any time soon even though he should be brought in right away…oh wait that;s right, they need to WWE-fy him.
