Goldust returns to the WWE due to shoulder injury to Cesaro

Published 5 Comments

Last night at Survivor Series saw the return of Goldust during the pre-show in a five-on-five traditional Survivor Series elimination tag team match alongside The Dudley Boyz, Neville and Titus O'Neil against The Cosmic Wasteland (Stardust and The Ascension), The Miz, and Bo Dallas.

His side, the face team, won, so it was a victory that got the crowd going and raring to go for what would end up being an eventful, but mediocre pay-per-view.

However, Goldust was not have been scheduled to appear in the match in the first place, according to reports, and was put in as a replacement due to an unfortunate injury to WWE fan favorite Cesaro.

According to Cageside Seats: "The word going around is Cesaro was planned for the 5-on-5 Survivor Series elimination tag last night before his injury and that's why Goldust returned."

This is such a sad thing to hear, as The Swiss Sensation was getting over strong with the WWE Universe, with even a large proportion of the crowd holding up 'Cesaro Section' signs for him every week on Raw and SmackDown.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross said on Twitter yesterday that if Cesaro is having shoulder issues, he will likely have surgery on it soon. This would place The Swiss Superstar out on the sidelines for a couple of months as he recovers and trains his shoulder back up to compete once more.

It wasn't a bad decision to place Goldust in the match as his replacement, some fans will be glad to see the veteran back in the ring, but more fans are going to be gutted that Cesaro could be spending a lengthy amount of time on the sides.
