One of my top reasons for even watching Raw over the past year or so has been seeing Antonio Cesaro in action.
The man is a beast who is capable of both putting on impossible feats of strength and putting on 5 star quality matches.
I've was sad with how he was depushed from the U.S. title picture and sent into jobber town and then thrown into a tag team with a lifetime mid carder named Jack Thwagger.
But there were glimpses of hope in the last few months, Cesaro just being his awesome self has put on several highlight reel moments during his brief tv time and some great matches.
His match with Kofi on Superstars was one of the best matches on TV this year and his Match with Bryan during the guantlet match on Raw was one of the matches of the year period.
Then it finally happened, Cesaro was able to use his amazing Giant Swing, a signature move of his in the independent circut, that many fans have been waiting for him to use on TV, one that shows that he is one of the strongest men the company has ever seen.
After seeing him use the swing on guys like Brodus and Kahli, I have to believe that the WWE has finally taken notice of this guy's awesome potential and are thinking about pushing him.
Just imagine if they give him a Swiss Superman gimmick, one where he uses his power more and just demolishes opponets left and right as a babyface character.
The WWE could be sitting on a gold mine with this guy, if they turned him into a wrecking ball type character sorta like they tried to do with Ryback last year.
The difference between Cesaro and Ryback or any other typical power character is what I mentioned earlier, Cesaro's ability to put on classic matches, this makes him unlike almost any powerhouse that the WWE has ever had and make him special.
I think this is the way to go and potentially the future of the WWE if done right.
Btw just imagine how the fans would explode if as a babyface Cesaro used his UFO move!
I'm all for this type of push, and think it would be a great change of pace for this company.
Anyone with me?
