Kings of Wrestling (Claudio Castagnoli and Chris Hero) Sign with WWE

Finally, the Kings of Wrestling as they were known in Ring of Honor are now both apart of WWE. Both Castagnoli and Hero have made their fame in Ring of Honor wrestling for the great wrestling ability. It is well known fact that both men are good friends of current WWE Champion CM Punk. In case you have never heard let me give you some info about both men.

Claudio Castagnoli made his wrestling debut on Christmas Eve in 2000. He was trained by Dave Taylor who has a great wrestling background and great in ring work. Castagnoli has had 21 title reigns during his time with indies. Most impressive was the fact that PWI ranked him #44 of the top 500 singles wrestlers in the PWI 500 in 2011. He has been in WWE for several months now but now is joined by his fellow tag team partner Chris Hero who finally passed the WWE physicals.

Chris Hero made his debut in September 1998 and was trained by some legendary stars such as Dory Funk, Jr., Ian Rotten, Les Thatcher, Tracy Smothers, Dave Taylor, Fit Finlay, and William Regal. He has 34 title reigns during his time on the indy scene. Like Castagnoli, Hero also was ranked by PWI and they ranked him #36 of the 500 best singles wrestlers in the world in the PWI 500 in 2011.

If  WWE would sign Colt Cabana they could have a CM Punk lead invasion of Ring of Honor stars. Seth Rollins (Tyler Black) has been with the company for awhile now and is close to being put on TV. If Punk, Cabana, Rollins, Hero and Castagnoli were all on TV at the same time you could see a lot of great wrestling.

Keep staying tune for more on the Ring of Honor invasion in WWE. It could mean some great things ahead.
