Stone Cold Steve Austin continues to keep a close eye on the WWE despite not having wrestled for the company in several years, and this week was no exception as he offered those in charge some advice on how to use their current talent.
With injuries and part-time agreements meaning that the WWE roster of superstar talent is far from overflowing right now, Austin has urged Vince McMahon and co to spend more time on a wrestler he has repeatedly talked up in recent months, Cesaro.
Time to shine?
Cesaro was involved in WWE's Hell in a Cell weekend PPV, taking on Dolph Ziggler in the intercontinental title belt match up. But once again he wasn't given the chance to shine as Ziggler convincingly beat the Swiss superstar in the best of three falls fight. And Stone Cold clearly feels the WWE are not treating Cesaro in the right way.
Taking to Twitter, Austin backed one fan's opinion that the WWE must now give Cesaro a bigger push going forward.
Stone Cold Steve Austin is certainly not alone in backing the European superstar with a growing number of WWE fans hoping the powers that be take a chance on developing the character and allowing the 6ft 5 inch talent reach his undoubted potential.

"I think his work is so strong that people will respect him and be drawn to him," Stone Cold Steve Austin on Cesaro
What's more, Austin's tweet isn't the first time he has spoken up for Cesaro's cause. Speaking on his popular podcast recently the Attitude Era hero made his case for the current wrestler.
"I think they (WWE) will in a war of attrition. There's so many injuries, the roster is so thin, you've got to give this guy a green light push and I think he was headed for a babyface run, then he kind of got off track," explained Austin.
"They put him with Paul Heyman, And just left to his own devices, I think his work is so strong that people will respect him and be drawn to him."
A worthy main event star?
Many people expected Cesaro to be given a leading role in the WWE following his surprise win at the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXX, but while his success there led to a partnership with Paul Heyman his booking of late have offered little to suggest he is primed for big things.
