Vince McMahon caused a bit of an uproar with the internet wrestling community when he stated that Antonio Cesaro was missing something that prevented him from being elevated to the main event. In a recent interview, Daniel Bryan decided to defend Cesaro, stating that if the two of them were to work a lengthy match together on Smackdown, it would easily generate a huge reaction from WWE fans.

Since he is viewed as a performer that is loved by this particular fan base, WWE opted to send Antonio Cesaro along with the NXT crew as they did their first series of live events in Ohio. This is the first time that the brand has ever done shows outside of Florida. The events drew a pretty good audience, as tickets were said to have sold out almost immediately. Cesaro received a very nice ovation from the audiences, so it was a wise move.

Last year, WWE introduced the Andre the Giant battle royal at Wrestlemania. Since his name value still remains strong, a lot of fans were quite excited about the match. Antonio Cesaro ended up winning the trophy, and that led to speculations that he was going to be on the receiving end of a push. That never happened. Disappointment set in. Management wants to give it another try this year, so the battle royal is being brought back.

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.

When they first started teaming up, a lot of fans were under the belief that Tyson Kidd and Antonio Cesaro were thrown together at the last minute and would not last very long. Apparently, WWE has different plans in mind. Management has been impressed with their work and feel that they could be an asset to the tag team division. There is now a strong chance that they take the championship from Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso at Fast Lane.

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.

During Monday Night Raw this week, fans witnessed an unusual segment, where Antonio Cesaro was given the microphone and time to speak. The company has rarely allowed him to do that over the last couple of months, as he has basically just been lost in the WWE shuffle. There are speculations right now that Cesaro was allowed to speak as a punishment. Apparently, management really wants him to improve that aspect of his performance.

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.
