Starting at last night’s Smackdown tapings, Antonio Cesaro will be simply known as Cesaro. No reason for the name change is known at this time. You can see the name change on Cesaro’s WWE.com profile and Twitter page.
Cesaro will be in the main event of the Elimination Chamber PPV that takes on Sunday, Febraury 23 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Cesaro will be competing in the Elimination Chamber against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton, John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus and Christian.
