|Chris Hero in ROH|

Rumors circulating around the interwebs are saying WWE has finally signed independent wrestler Chris Hero and he has checked into FCW. Hero’s signing is about a year in the waiting. Last year Hero’s longtime tag team partner Claudio Castagnoli was signed to a contract and all signs pointed to Claudio and Hero, the Kings of Wrestling, coming in as a package deal. Speculation is there were some medical issues that delayed Hero’s signing.
Reports have also said Hero and Claudio will not be used as a tag team and there was never any intention to use them together. While both men have had successful singles careers over the years, both have been Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Champion, it’s their history of being a team that put them on the map in the Indies.
At one point back in 2006, the Kings of Wrestling simultaneously held the Chikara, CZW and Ring of Honor tag team championships. They ended up losing the titles when it looked like Claudio would be heading to the WWE. After Claudio ended up not being signed, for reasons still unknown, the Kings would eventually re-unite and capture tag team gold again.

I would even suggest the Kings debut by helping Daniel Bryan in a match where it appears he may lose his World Title. They could be the Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas to Bryan’s Kurt Angle. With a roster full of singles wrestlers who can’t get a sustained push due to WWE keeping John Cena and Randy Orton on top of the pile, even when they aren’t champions, bringing in two more singles competitors doesn’t make a lot of sense.
