For that to work wcmd needs to be able to find itself (ie it must be in one
of the places Win32 searches for executables). wcmd has no special knowledge
of its own name or how to invoke itself.
However even if wcmd is able to start another version of itself there is
another problem. wcmd started in this way does not inherit the current
directory from its parent, so unless you included the full path to
cygwin.bat the child wcmd would not find it.
