Rumored Reason for Cesaro’s Name Change, More on Rey Possibly Being Injured, NXT Arrival
– As noted, the WWE NXT Arrival pay-per-view will air on the WWE Network at 8pm EST on February 27th. Word is that it will be a two-hour event.
– 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.
