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.

    Again, how is a show airing as a WWE Network exclusive a pay-per-view? It will not be possible to pay for the NXT special per view so that term does not fit it at all. It’s a special, not a PPV.

  2. Joseph Duncan says:

    Antonio sounds like the name of a guy who’s not tough?

    Inoki disagrees. Hard.

  3. I actually laughed out loud after reading the reason for Cesaro’s name change.

  4. cesar says:

    and Randy sounds ultra tough, right?

  5. DBRude says:

    @ cesar – What about Jean Paul (Levesque)?

  6. Detective Dwindlerod says:

    Just Cesaro sounds cooler than Antonio Cesaro.

    However Just Big E doesn’t sound as good as Big E Langston.

  7. Ronald B says:

    Big E sounds like a joke

    Or maybe Vince doesn’t want “Langston”, fans may refer to Big E as “Lashley”

  8. Robb says:

    Yeah, why can’t Cesaro have a tough name like Randy, John or Bray?

  9. Suggestions says:

    Julius Cesaro

    Take of the Roman Emperor gimmick.

    The headline says rumored not fact
