Report: Update on ROH Tag Team Possibly Heading to WWE

Nick Paglino

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that The Kings of Wrestling, Claudio Castagnoli and Chris Hero, might be headed to WWE as the team received a tryout with the company several weeks ago and impressed officials.

While nothing has been confirmed at this point, it’s being said that Ring of Honor has extended contract offers to The Kings, and wanted all long-term contract deals signed by yesterday. According to reports, however, Castagnoli and Hero did not sign the contracts, and the feeling is that they are leaning towards signing with WWE.

It should be noted that Castagnoli did agree to a WWE developmental contract back in 2006, but was released before he began working with the company.
