Often times, the new media department in WWE will come up with various polls to keep wrestling fans engaged.

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.

Cesaro received a very nice ovation from the audiences, so it was a wise move.
