Many of the fans who tuned into WWE Monday Night Raw this week were all left with the same burning question, why did Cesaro compete without Paul Heyman at ringside?

Cesaro took on Big E who had Kofi Kingston in his corner and it was Kofi who helped Big E pick up the first win over Cesaro in months. But another question surfaces, would he have lost if Heyman was in his corner? And where was his manager?

Missing Man

JBL stated that Heyman had been fired by Cesaro when the question was asked on Raw and when Heyman appeared backstage a little later in the show he said he had been "busy" meaning he had other things on his mind than Cesaro.

It seems the real reason is the fact that Brock Lesnar is set to make his return the monday on Raw, the night after Battleground and stake his claim for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Heyman is Brock Lesnar's advocate so he will have to be at his side when he returns, meaning he can't be in Cesaro's corner as much. 

Brock's back

It seems a lot of what is happening in WWE is leading up to Brock's return, Seth Rollins' apparent injury on Raw was also part of the plan because Heyman offered Triple H a plan C backstage on Raw.

WWE fans will remember Plan A was Evolution and that didn't work out, Plan B was Seth Rollins turning on The Shield and becoming Mr Money in the Bank and Plan C will be Brock Lesnar returning to take on John Cena at Summerslam.

The reason Rollins' injury plays a part is because it's what is going to cost him his match at Battleground against Dean Ambrose and it's going to be the reason Triple H accepts Heyman's Plan C and the build up to Summerslam will begin.

What it means for the rest

What this means for Seth, Randy and Kane around the Authority still remains to be seen because Seth won't cash in his briefcase on Brock Lesnar and there were rumours of a Shield reunion but maybe that will be later in the year.

The one thing that is known for now is that Plan C is about to be put into action and the only man who can stop John Cena is about to arrive but one question remains, when Brock has the title, who is there left to stop him?
