Former Ring of Honor Tag Team Champion Claudio Castagnoli has posted a notice on his MySpace:
Ladies and Gentlemen this is an official statement issued by one Castagnoli Claudio.
There have been rumors about my status as a US resident, my visa, work visa and so forth.
Those rumors are FALSE.
These rumors hurt me, my integrity and my status in this country and business.
I’m a man of honor, pride and integrity.
I do have a green card or permanent resident card if you will and also do have a social security number. In case you don’t know, you need both of these in order to be and work in this country legally.
So before so called “News SitesÃ¢â‚¬Â and “NewslettersÃ¢â‚¬Â release heavy statements or rumors like that, they should really do their job. It’s called research.
Let me close by saying there was and is nothing wrong with my visa or residential status.
This apparently puts to rest the rumors that Castagnoli was released due to not having the proper work visas. Keep checking back to Inside Pulse for updates as the story develops.
