Exclusive: Vince McMahon Finally Sold On Cesaro As a Main Eventer

Cesaro has finally won Vince McMahon over after his stellar match against John Cena last night on RAW.

According to a high-level source who was backstage at the show, Vince was “thrilled” with the match and has finally recognized Cesaro’s potential. Cesaro received a standing ovation backstage after his match against Cena.

Several of Vince’s trusted advisors told him they think Cesaro can be one of the biggest stars in the company.

Cesaro has been over fans and colleagues with his unique move set and his impressive feats of strength, but it was only a year ago when Vince told the writers and producers that he saw nothing in the Swiss Superstar.

Following RAW, Cesaro’s ‘stock’ with Vince hit an all time high.

  • Initializing….

    Yeah about damn time! Now Vince open your eyes and realise that about Bryan, Ziggler & Sandow !

    • pwnez

      I still have high hopes for Sandow. As for Ziggler, I think he’s finished. It’s clear WWE officials don’t like him and wouldn’t buy him as a main event wrestler.

      • Whatsupbb415

        Well Austin just said on his podcast he feels as if these guys Sandow, Cesaro and Ziggler among others need to take more chances creatively. You know it’s not all about the matches you’ve got to have a character you can push. Cesaro to be a main-eventer needs a lot of tweaking! Ziggler and Sandow both have to develop way more before they can work on the main event scene. People outside of the IWC simply aren’t looking for them.

        • Deceiver

          I honestly disagree about Cesaro. Obviously he needs to part ways with Zeb and Swagger, but he doesn’t need a lot of changes to be a credible main eventer. All they need to do is book him solidly for a few months and people will see him as a WWE title contender. He’s one of those guys whose talent speaks for itself in my opinion.

        • inyo

          Austin has been saying that for a while, and honestly, it’s crap. If what Austin said is true, they would have done something with Ziggler after he cut that promo on the WWE app. They would have done something with Ziggler after that amazing moment winning the title.

          They would have done something with Sandow when he was getting more heat than any heel in the company, instead of turning him into a loser once he won the briefcase. They would have done something with Sandow after his awesome matches with Cena.

          The bottom line is, unfortunately, these guys careers are at the mercy of a grumpy old man who hasn’t built any new super stars in a very long time. They are at the mercy of an old man who had no interest in guys like Cesaro, Ziggler, Bryan, and Sandow, four of the most talented guys they have.

          Most of these guys that are getting over now are doing it in spite of Vince. Remember, Vince’s idea of a potential star is Fandango. You also have to remember that guys like Rock and Austin didn’t blow up until they did their own thing, and got rid of the awful gimmicks Vince gave them.

      • SOBI

        Yes same here Sandow is the man I wish to be pushed next
        but Ziggler can always make a comeback cuz you never know with wwe

    • QuiteFrankly2k

      I kid you not when I say Bryan’s apparent popularity seems to be receding. Week by week the chants have been getting quieter and quieter. They still have the opportunity to cash on Bryan but they don’t have much time left.

      • inyo

        Receding? Did you not watch Raw last week? It seems talking about Bryan’s support slowing down is the cool thing to say these days, even though there is no evidence to back that up. It appears they are finally putting out nice merch for him that people will actually want.

        • QuiteFrankly2k

          Well it really doesn’t matter if it is or not. My main point is and I love Bryan might I add that if he doesn’t get the title soon, then to remove him from the picture for a while, maybe till Summerslam. Maybe his popularity hasn’t been receding, but you do understand that people will stop caring eventually..unless the like I said cash in on him now..

  • RomBuster

    Very happy for Cesaro.
    The guy is a pure example of EARNING your spot and earning your respect.

    Even when last year when Vince didn’t see that much in him, instead of whining and complaining or trying to ‘rebel against the machine’ ( like some people do and they think its gonna get them somewhere ), he kept on doing what he BELIEVED he did best and improved himself.

    Congratulations Cesaro.

    • Vince The Man

      That’s funny because it was going against the machine that made the superstar become one of Vince’s most trusted.

    • MariosG1987

      Just lie back and watch how this rebel you imply will be proven right AGAIN when the next “Batista” takes the main event spot from Cesaro next year

      • Punk2k14

        probably Kurt Angle lol

    • Pozessed

      Yep, he stuck to doing what he does best and it is finally paying off

    • SwindleFox69

      Ziggler should definitely take a page out of Cesaro’s play book.

      • Michael Carter

        What? Have a good match? I think he’s tried that a time or two.

        • SwindleFox69

          Not just that. But instead of running around bitching about how he’s better than everyone else, actually find out why WWE isn’t sold on him. Cesaro found out what he needed to work on the most and he’s been working tirelessly on both a full time main roster schedule but on NXT’s schedule also to elevate his game. Ziggler is fun to watch. But he’s easily forgettable and there isn’t really any substance.

          • inyo

            I get the feeling you have no idea what you are talking about. The only thing Cesaro found out was that Vince had no faith in him. Where was there anything saying he found out what he needed to work on? He has pretty much been doing the same stuff as he’s always been doing.

            As for Ziggler, how do you find out what you need to work on when you are being stupidly held back for saying something they didn’t like, which turns out, wasn’t even a big deal? The guy has great matches, cuts great promo’s when given the chance, proved he can get over with fans. I guess in this day and age, that isn’t enough. Clearly there is something he is doing wrong, and it’s not just that Vince has no eye for talent anymore.

          • SwindleFox69

            I could say the same for you, respectfully. Cesaro has improved head and shoulders since he started working in NXT. Mostly on his promos. He’s become a believable villain. He’s not just getting cheap heat by insulting America or the people who inhabit it. He’s learning how to take a crowd out of a promo and actually make them listen. He can effectively say what needs to be said instead of being bombarded with “What” chants. I wasn’t sold on Cesaro as a main eventer until I saw the work he did on NXT and how it translated over to his main roster role. If you think Cesaro is “pretty much” doing the same thing he’s always done, I suggest you watch his stuff before he started and NXT and where he’s at now.

            As for Ziggler, big whoop. He puts on entertaining matches, he cuts decent promos, and at one point people popped for him. Big whoop. What’s he doing to move on from his position? Bitching in interviews about how he’s better than Cena? Better than Orton? Great good, you’re better than Cena and Orton. Prove it, sell more shirts. Work you’re way out of the hole you’re in. Ziggler is a good talent but if he thinks raw talent is what determines your spot on the card, then he should quit. Because there’s so many more factors that go in to making a star in the WWE than just wrestling ability.

        • QuiteFrankly2k

          A time or two? Lol Ziggler has had too many of them..

  • Wolf Haley

    YES CESARO and thank god, unlike bitching like ziggler and punk do, Cesaro and Bryan just go in there and work and work, no complaints, just do what they need to do. and now look. Cesaro is my pick to win MITB. he doesnt complain, even when he was jobbing and lets be honest, someone like Cesaro should never be jobbing. but he kept his head now and now has a bright future. very happy for the swiss superman

    • MariosG1987

      yeah, you too put the blame on punk and ziggler.

    • Undertaker316

      im sure him getting noticed doesn’t have something do with wwe’s mentality about pushing tall muscular guys im not saying that its a bad thing that cesaro is getting pushed he is a great wrestler im saying guy like ziggler and punk would never get pushed because of their size unless they complain

      • lunchbox87

        Exactly, you need looks more than anything to make it in the WWE

    • inyo

      We need to make up our minds. On one hand, Cena and Austin say talent needs to speak up more to Vince and take more chances. On the other hand, fans like you say they should just not say anything and keep working. So which is it? And why does the talent get all the blame? Maybe Vince is the problem.

    • Real Talk

      But did Ziggler leave? no, he’s complaining because he has the right to because they are having a good talent like Ziggler job when he is one of the best on the roster and he is STILL there. Punk however bitched and left.

  • Louis Salera

    It took him this long? We knew he was great in ROH. Get with times vince.

    • Undertaker316

      vince is so smug that he doesn’t even watch the product of other wrestling promotions

      • thaShowstoppa

        Dumbest thing I’ve read, why would a man who runs a multi million dollar wrestling company concern himself with small fish organisations such as ROH? Where could he possibly have the time, let alone the interest, he has people do that for him.

      • MachoViper

        Some wrestlers who jumped ship from WWF to WCW back in the day use to say how backstage at Nitro alot of the writers/bookers would pay alot of attention to Raw, while at Raw there was little attention given to Nitro. Vince is simply too busy to care I think.

    • mrchopper

      He’s always had the in-ring ability, but he’s still got the charisma of a stick insect on the mic, bless him. Quite how they’re going to push him as a main event playa without having a spokesperson – unless Heyman gets himself a new client…

      • Eric Gravely

        This is the dumbest thing I have seen. Cesaro does not need Heyman. He already has Zeb Coulter. Heyman in my opinion cant say a sentence without saying ‘client’ or ‘Brock Lesnar’ 5 times. I am sure this may be the idea but when I hear Heyman speak, I hear: “When I am alone with my ‘client, Brock Lesnar,’ I tend to suck off my ‘client, Brock Lesnar.’ My ‘client, Brock Lesnar,’ loves it so much that it tends to be the reason my ‘client, Brock Lesnar,’ puts up with me.”

        • pwnez

          …And this is the dumbest comment I’ve read all day.

          • God

            Do you really have aids bro?

          • Cujo999

            I think he’s exaggerating, but he has a point. Being honest, who has Heyman gotten over in a manger role during his latest run? Punk and Lesnar were both already over in a major way, and he did absolutely nothing to further Ryback or Curtis Axel. Paul is one of the greatest wrestling bookers and creative minds in the history of the biz, but also probably the most overrated on-air manager in history. Paul’s problem is that he has a tendancy to try and put himself over instead of, or sometimes at the expense of, the guy he’s supposed to be giving a rub to. I think Zeb and Cesaro have a good thing going, and they could either drop Swagger or perhaps add another member to The Real Americans and build it into a proper faction, with Cesaro as the top dog.

          • pwnez

            Heyman cannot be blamed for the failure of Ryhack and Haxel. Those guys didn’t have an ounce of charisma, plus they were already considered major flops by the time Heyman was paired up with them. I’ve said it before, Heyman can only do so much for a superstar, the rest is up to them. If Heyman was able to get any wrestler over, he’d be paired up with the entire roster. Ryhack buried himself and although Haxel didn’t do so, he just isn’t entertaining. Yes, he’s a pretty good wrestler but that will only get you so far in todays WWE.

            I wouldn’t say Heyman is overrated, people just expect too much from him. Fans forget just how much he helped Lesnar get over back in the day. I’ll go farther to say if it wasn’t for Heyman, i’m not so sure how Lesnar would have turned out. You’re right though, he is a creative genius. As for Zeb, it’s either he will turn face with Cesaro and stay as his manager or he will remain heel and stay paired up with Swagger.

            What are you talking about? You’ve been here the whole time.

          • Cujo999

            Ryback and Axel are by no means top tier, but it really can’t be argued that Heyman did zero to help them get over at even a mid-card level. In fact, Ryback’s worst period was when he was with Heyman. He was more over with the “Feed me more” gimmick, and he’s been more over since they split Heyman off of them. As far as past Heyman failures, he managed guys like Steve Austin and some dude named Mark Callous in WCW, and did about as much to get them over as he did for Axel and Ryback. That’s why I say Heyman is overrated. He can help a talent that’s already over or already well on his way to being over[and you can include Lesnar in that number], but he does little to nothing to help get new guys over, and he’s had way too many extremely talented failures to really say otherwise.

          • pwnez

            You can’t expect fans to care about a wrestler who had already flopped not once, not twice but three times. Once Ryhack was paired with Heyman, he stood no chance of getting over. You could have had him feud with Undertaker and he still wouldn’t have gotten over. His ‘Feed me more’ chant was more over than he was anyways. Ryhack has certainly not been ‘over’ since splitting with Heyman. From what I’ve seen, all he has been doing is jobbing.

            I used to think Haxel could be a solid mid-card wrestler but I was wrong. His wrestling is simply not enough to make him a mid-carder. Haxel is a C-list wrestler at best; Heyman was never going to change that. You have to have something going for you in order to succeed to some level. I’d go farther to say Haxel was the most boring wrestler on the roster during his IC title reign. You can’t teach someone how to be charasmatic. You could have made Bobby Heenan (1980’s) Ryhack and Haxel’s manager and I’m conviced they still would have never gotten over as heels.

            Heyman contributed a lot to Lesnar’s character. Like I said, I highly doubt he would be as popular now (or even back in 2002) if it wasn’t for Heyman. He also played a key part in the invasion storyline. Shane wasn’t the actual owner of WCW and neither was Stephanie. Things got interesting once Heyman joined in. Also, Heyman was involved with WCW in the late 80’s and was pretty much just starting off. Of course he wasn’t the genius back then as he is now. He also didn’t stick around long either until he decided to create ECW.

            During his time in WCW he did help a bunch of WCW talent. The Dangerous Alliance proves this (Austin was involved with that stable so yes, he did help him get over.) Heyman was the guy to help heels get more over. He also was an announcer for a little while. I still don’t see the failures you’re talking about.

          Your comment made me think of this lol..

          No, that’s not the dumbest thing you’ve seen. Stop exaggerating…

        • Shawn Myers

          heyman is one of the greatest of all time as far as managers go

    • QuiteFrankly2k

      That’s the problem Vince isn’t the one who’s out scouting talent. He doesn’t care about anything except for what he sees on RAW and MAYBE smack down.

  • yrabadi

    Looks like the IWC has a new champion! Bryan may still be getting a good response, but his buzz is weakening from week to week. WWE missed their chance with him, in my opinion. That window is closing.

    • AceRuby

      The WWE has no one to blame but themselves period for Daniel Bryan the guy is still hot right now but if he doesn’t win the title Sunday then that hot iron is going to seriously die out and they will end up making the biggest mistake in not making Bryan a legit main event talent. Guy is money right now and if this where old WWF/E they would of pushed the guy to the moon and would of made him legit because the fans are supposed to be ones that show the company who is over.

      • Bryan

        Him winning at Elimination Chamber rather than Wrestlemania seems wrong to me as he needs his Mania moment and he can’t do that if he he’s already won the title. Anyway what if this was WWE’s plan was to make you all get frustrated and boom Bryan wins at Mania and beats the machine and gets one of the biggest pops of Mania history. Only time will tell if this was WWE dropping the ball with Bryan or just to suck you all in as Bryan getting screwed constanly and defying the odds at Mania could change my entire view on this angle to being probably the most engaging story in WWE in recent years.

        • Alan Lopez

          Yeah thats exactly whats going to happen and it will be best for business

        • yrabadi

          Sorry, but I don’t place that much faith in WWE. Bryan will end up wrestling Kane or HHH at WMXXX.

    • Bryan

      Nah I still think Bryan will be still the most over as hell for a while but Caesaro could take CM Punk’s spot as second most over guy.

      • yrabadi

        I’m not arguing that Bryan is still the most over guy on the roster. All I’m saying is that he’s not as hot as he was right after the Rumble. People were chanting his name non-stop – his name was on the tip of everyone’s tongue. It’s already changed, is all I’m saying.

        • Bryan

          The fans are taking a breather they did that with Austin as well but was still the most over guy.

          • yrabadi

            Here’s hoping.

        • inyo

          The crowd was as crazy as they’ve ever been for Bryan just last Monday. This notion that it is slowing down is just wrong. Even last night, the entire arena was still chanting Yes with him.

          • yrabadi

            It’s just my opinion, and I have no scientific way of judging it. I just remember them chanting for Bryan during Batista, Orton and Cena segments more frequently. Now they’re only chanting when he’s in the ring.
            He’s still over, I’m not suggesting he isn’t. I’m just saying it feels like it’s dying down – just my opinion.

    • lunchbox87

      Pretty much,they should of pulled the trigger on him long ago he was the hottest he will ever be,as cool as it is Vince is noticing cesaro is that it may be the end for Bryan because cesarohas the look Vince loves, Bryan doesn’t and its sad Bryan should of had his year.

    • G.I.R.L.

      Cesaro is the champion of champions. He and Aksana were my picks for huge pushes in 2014.

      I’m very pleased with Cesaro.

      • yrabadi

        He’s def getting a push. Though admittedly, I don’t buy much into dirtsheet ‘exclusives’. I’ll believe Vince is high on Cesaro when he wins the top prize. Till then, I remain skeptecal. Wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the second guy out of the chamber.

        But to directly answer your comment, yeah. He’s def. got something. His style is pretty dope. Those uppercuts take me back to when Kurt was on top of his game.

  • Abra Kadabra

    He only can be great as long as cena can’t get one over him….Cena is too powerful

  • dmanigo

    Congratulations Cesaro! You’ve officially made Dolph Ziggler jealous. LOL! Just kidding. Screw Ziggler. Less Zig Zag more Swingin’.

  • Undertaker316

    glad vince mcmahon is starting to notice real talent now he just needs to see the same thing with dolph ziggler and damien sandow i hope we get a daniel bryan and cesaro feud for the champion ship after wm 30

  • AceRuby

    If this was the case then why the hell didn’t he win last night against Cena to really propel him forward and make him look like a legit contender in the chamber Sunday. This is a continued problem with the WWE’s booking they clearly don’t understand that it doesn’t make sense for him to beat Orton and then lose to Cena when Cesaro needed that win to make him truly legit going into the ppv. I’m happy that they are noticing Cesaro but its little stuff like this that needs to be fix in the long term booking of the guy if they are going to make him a main even talent later down the road.

      LOL you said swagger and Miz. Swagger has nothing on the mic. The miz only has mic skills. Why push either?

  • abinniss

    I wish Vince saw this in Kaval. Better known as Low Ki to the true fans.

    • yrabadi

      Ha. Too short. Not nearly ripped enough.

  • Forceton Banfodder

    I’ve been saying this since he was in ROH. I still say they dropped the ball letting the equally impressive Chris Hero go but I’ll take what I can get from WWE.

    • Sigma ?

      Stupid move indeed.

      • Truth

        Put yourself in his shoes.
        If the only thing keeping you from making it to the main roster was your physique, would you not be in the gym 3 hours a day?
        Hero, while a fantastic wrestler in the ring, didnt have the motivation to make it to the Show.

        • Anonymous

          His physique didn’t stop him from having extremely good matches before, nor will it stop him from having them in the future.

          Let’s not act like Punk was an Adonis with his physique. They dropped the ball, plain and simple. It happens.

  • Steve Blackman

    Cesaro didn’t become awesome last night, he was already a long time ago. Props also to Cena, they put a great match on Raw, easily one of the best of the year so far.

  • DimTooC

    Maybe Bryan wins the Chamber and it leads to a triple threat match at Mania with Bryan vs Orton vs Batista. Bryan wins and it leads to Daniel Bryan vs Cesaro at next PPV?

  • DirtydaN86

    About damn time

    • astronautbutter

      I had typed this exact post and realized you beat me to it. Last night’s match was amazing and I guarantee you it had very little to do with Cena.

  • Shucky Ducky Quack Quack

    Daniel Bryan is the only one left

  • Mike Hillyard


  • ballz

    amazing match yesterday always saw something in claudio and hero loved the team in japan winning the noah cup and now in wwe with dare i say cesaro ahem claudio almost beating cena, was great, but 1 thing is missing the ufo on cena would have been amazing.

  • captaindaddy72

    About time, he’s my favorite WRESTLER in the company

  • yrabadi

    With all this in mind, I’m assuming Cesaro is going to be on the WMXXX card. Questions is, in what capacity? Feuding with Jack for the IC title? Big E in the mix? Costs someone in the chamber (Bryan), and we get Bryan/Cesaro?

  • scott

    I’m glad they came back around and saw this guy as a serious main eventer. WWE is gonna have to magically write their way out of all the mistakes they’ve made since Summerslam.

  • Scott Dorian Dancer

    way to be late to the party vince. roh wrestlers always step there game up. one of the best wrestling minor leagues in the world.

  • Lone Wolf

    So it took a match against Cena for Vince old a** to finally notice him as a main eventer? we BEEN sold and i feel that he didn’t only get the standing ovation for his amazing performance but that they also saw a future WWE/WHC carry Cena the whole match. One of my top 10 current wrestlers for sure and we know that Cesaro was the REAL winner in that match.

  • Brian

    We’ll see. Actions speak louder than words.

  • Alex Hargrove

    and why isnt barrett wrestling anymore? he’s got the brutal euro style too. i like this new bad news gimmick, but i’d like to see him in the ring again too.

  • brad

    Yes Cesaro is my top pick for the future, well him and Barrett but they’ve turned ol wade into a jokey joke.

  • Ares

    Keep working hard, and you’ll achieve your goals. The big problem with Ziggler is that he talks too much (even though most of what he says it’s true). I can barely remember Cesaro complaining all that much. Dude goes out there and performs

  • Buzzard Follower

    finally they see what all of us have seen since day one CESARO IS $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

  • G.I.R.L.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! The power of my love for this phenomenal man!

  • Noah

    My 2 top future picks:Roman Reigns and Cesaro!!!.YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!.They will both be WWE World Heavyweight Champion in the future.

  • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

    I somewhat like Cesaro, but I did not like his Anti-American gimmick, since he should had been grateful to be in a successful American company.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      ^ It’s still real to him.

  • satishwarne708

    No sh#t!

  • jay2222

    Wyat, Bryan, Rollins, Ambrose and Cesaro a better future if they are used right.

    • Noah

      Rollins and Ambrose will be more on the IC title level.Not main event level like Cesaro and Reigns will be.I see Cesaro and Reigns will be more over then Bryan in the future.

    • Mike

      “if they are used right”
      Same old regurgitated saying from the smark fanbase.
      How would you know exactly how right or wrong they use them? Especially if you do not know what they have planned for them at all.
      What would you do with these men? How would you book them heading into WM, and even post WM for the rest of the year?
      What storylines would you put on them? What pushes and what titles would you give them, and who would they drop them to? It’s very easy to not think about all of these things when you don’t work for the company.

  • jay2222

    Have people noticed its a new era is Wrestling. The attitude era was so awesome, but we the fans just watched on. Now its starting to be the fans era, we chant for superstars we think deserve it. It doesn’t matter if they are heel or face. The people have voiced them self’s its awesome. I hope it stays this way !!!!

  • d1l2g3

    Vince is like that grandparent who is about six months behind the current trends

  • Rami

    Now we KNOW where is cM PUNK – IN VincE’s HEAD!!!!

  • Mike

    Why are fans so surprised? Vince has always paid attention to all of his talent. This is not a shocker in the least. Antonio Cesaro just went through a ‘test’. A test that WWE throw out to EVERYBODY. The only reason why Vince likes what he saw is because Antonio Cesaro busted his asss out there and worked hard! He didn’t slack off, and he took it to Cena in a rough as nails fashion. That’s the type of action Vince likes. He wants to see smash mouth hard hitting action. Guys that don’t hold back. Cesaro was given a test. And that test was to work with John Cena and take it too him. And he passed with an A+. That’s why Vince likes him. He probably reminds him of the old days. A throwback to the 80s where guys were rough as nails. None of that pretty boy sissy shiit.
    If you can’t tell, WWE is downsizing all the pretty boys and making them look like actual men.
    People are asking what about Dolph Ziggler? The guy busts his asss too, but he does it in the form of in ring tricks and selling. That most likely doesn’t impress Vince one bit. And it wouldn’t hurt for Ziggler to actually be a man and step up his game by confronting Vince on the issue and then showing him.
    When Vince gives wrestlers these tests, they are make or break. You either pass or you fail. Daniel Bryan (even though fans are completely misguided on how he’s treated) has passed the test numerous times. Which is why Vince is so high on him too.
    Take a look at Sandow. This guy was given a test…. he wrestled John Cena in a high caliber match for the WHC. It was decent, but likely not good enough. That’s probably why he has been taking a back seat. Sandow will probably have another chance and be given another test. But if he fails, he will likely end up a low mid card jobber for the remainder of his career. A wrestler that gets fed to upper mid carders and main eventers.
    All the guys get chances. When you don’t see them succeed or get far it is because they failed a test that was given to them along the way. Fans don’t pay attention to these things, and they tend to think biased. Pay attention to when these tests take place. And know what Vince wants, just by looking at the guys that get pushed up. Guys like CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, and now Cesaro. What do they all have in common? They’re all rough as nails, and hard workers in the ring. They are also a throwback to the 80s and 90s when wrestlers looked BAD ASSS, and not like pretty boy sissies. That has never been Vince’s ideal guy. Ever!



    This post you’re reading is important if you’re attending any future WWE event. I have a plan to get CM Punk back where he belongs, the WWE. I want anyone going to a WWE event to go online and find the lyrics to “Cult of Personality”, then copy and paste them into a program like Notepad or Wordpad, print a bunch of copies, say like 30 or 40, and hand them out to Punk supporters. Then when Triple H or Stephanie appear, start singing, encourage the people around you to join in, and try to synchronize your singing to send a clear message that we want Punk back. This kind of thing happened back at ECW One Night Stand in 2005 with The Sandman, they played “Enter Sandman” and the audience sang along, Mick Foley and Joey Styles even commented on it. It was censored for DVD, but it happened. Peaceful protest, it’ll possibly make either WWE or Punk reconsider things. What have we got to lose? Just CM Punk… #WeWantPunk

    Don’t really care for him, but hey at least there’s someone new. There are more people I think deserve a shot then him, but gratz on getting out of that hole. Very few this era do.

    Does this mean Vince is out of touch with what fans want now? I mean unlike the 80s, 90s and even early 2000s fans are not getting behind talent the company thinks we should. This is proven with Ziggler, Bryan and many others.

    Personally, I would’ve rather he had gotten over with Vince as the “Swiss Superman,” but a “Real American” Cesaro is better than no Cesaro.

  • BDS

    Put the title on him at EC! Lol! I know don’t everyone gang up on me, I know it’ll not happen

  • Zeb Colter

    Ceaaro deserves to be in the main even as he is a real american #WeThePeople

  • JamieEvsxx

    so we’ve gone from wanting to buy Newcastle FC to finally believing in Cesaro?…well that escalated quickly!…=O…but yeah in all seriousness glad Vince finally sees something in Cesaro and let’s hope all goes well for him…=)


    .. AND thatss how you put a talent over .. CENA and CESARO did amazing , to the moronsss who still say CENA buries the talent , F**KKK Y*UUUUU ,,

  • morph_3

    Having Vince on your side could be a “curse”. let’s just hope Vince doesn’t stick Cesaro with a “gimmick”. For example, do we need another dancing wrestler in a chicken suit?
