There might be a good amount of backstage heat coming towards Antonio Cesaro. During his match on Monday Night Raw with John Cena, Cesaro gave the middle finger to Cena, which immediately prompted the production crew to censor that particular segment by putting up a blank screen for a second or two.

As some of you already know, plans change pretty often backstage in WWE. Originally, Kalisto and Sin Cara were supposed to challenge Tyson Kidd and Antonio Cesaro for the tag team championship at Extreme Rules. However, management opted to change things up by giving the match to Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston instead, even though the Lucha Dragons received really nice ovations from the live events during the Europe tour.

Unless plans get changed yet again, Tyson Kidd and Antonio Cesaro are on the verge of becoming the top act in the WWE tag team division. A big part is due to the fact that Tyson Kidd has become an important part of Total Divas, so there is some outside pressure on his push. Plus, there are still key people backstage that are big fans of Cesaro, and they want to provide him with the opportunity to impress the rest of management again.

Since management wants to get as many wrestlers involved in the show as possible, there are talks once again within WWE of doing another battle royal at Wrestlemania. The company is said to be hesitant of having the Andre the Giant name attached, as many backstage feel that things did not turn out quite so great last year. Antonio Cesaro was given the win, but his push was taken away from him, so some fans associate the match with failure.

For a good period of time there, Antonio Cesaro was one of the hottest commodities in WWE. Fans completely bought into him, despite his character being a heel. The belief at that time was that management was going to give him the push that he deserved. That never came. Now, the feeling backstage is that Cesaro will never be given a main event push by the company. They'll keep him around because he's a solid worker and an asset in Europe, though.
