WWE Hires ‘Biggest Loser’ Winner & ROH Star
— Former head writer for WWE’s NXT show Jen Bloodsworth recently quit the company. Bloodsworth started with WWE’s website and has been working on creative since 2007. Joel Satin, the Vice President of Financial Planning & Analysis, has also left WWE.
— WWE has hired Jim Germanakos, winner of The Biggest Loser season four, to help get the employees at WWE headquarters in Stamford to lose weight and get in better shape. Germanakos is running a multi-week program for the WWE staffers and the company has also upgraded their gym with more equipment.
— After receiving several WWE tryouts this year, Ring of Honor star Claudio Castagnoli has reportedly signed with WWE. Castagnoli, one half of the ROH tag team “The Kings of Wrestling” (along with Chris Hero), has already reported to WWE’s developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling.
According to an FCW source, Castagnoli will be known as “Antonio Cesaro.”
At this time, there’s no word on the WWE status of Chris Hero. Both men impressed WWE officials during their tryouts and the most recent talk was that they’d be brought in together as a tag team.
