WWE has officially sent Santino overseas to Italy to do some promoting for WWE and it’s programming, along with promoting the Italian BE A STAR*© program that helps stop bullying. Santino noted that while overseas, he witnessed the new Pope being sworn in, meeting some students, and exploring Italy. He was quoted in a Tweet saying: “Vieni a conoscere me domani a “Casa Mia” located at Via Appia Nuova 146 in Rome! 4pm. Non vedo l’ora !” Which translates in English to “Come and meet me tomorrow at “My House” located at Via Appia Nuova 146 in Rome! 4pm. I can not wait!

Also while in Italy, Santino was in Rome to meet with some local students, and he even got the chance to hear the bells that rang in the new Pope Francis. Overall, it sounded like a fun trip, and he must be excited to return home and compete in the ring, representing Italy everytime he walks to the ring. “What a great day in Roma! met with local students with the Be A Star program, had a signing, and heard the bells ring for the new pope!” Santino has also been medically cleared to compete in the ring this Monday.
