Many WWE superstars are currently sidelined due to injury, and it is taking its toll on the company. These include John Cena, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Nikki Bella, Tyson Kidd, and Cesaro.
The Swiss Sensation recently said in an interview with Sport 360, according to NoDQ, that he wouldn't be able to participate at WrestleMania on April 3. He did say that the doctors have said they expect him to return in two to three months.
However, good news has come out of the WWE today, as they have revealed that time frame is actually much shorter. Cesaro will, in fact, be returning to in-ring action during their WrestleMania Revenge tour in Europe next month.

The WWE announced on their WWE Nederland Twitter that Cesaro will return to action at the April 15th live event in Amsterdam, Netherlands at the Ziggo Dome, and will likely wrestle at the other events on the tour as well.
So it looks like The King of Swing will be returning to the ring ahead of the expected timeframe he was originally given by doctors. This is great news for the WWE Universe, especially the Cesaro Section, who will likely have their signs out in force during the European Tour.
Reaching for the Brass Ring
Cesaro is arguably the best pound-for-pound best wrestler in the WWE today. He is an accomplished superstar in both singles and tag team competition, as he has won the United States Championship and the Tag Team Championship during his time with the company. There are endless booking opportunities for this superstar.
He could be booked straight back into the tag team picture if his partner Tyson Kidd is able to return to the ring. Kidd has been out of action since June after he suffered a severe neck/spinal injury, which only five percent of people survive. The chances of him returning to the ring are slim so if Cesaro was to enter the tag team division again, he would have to find a new partner.
The title picture everyone wants to see The Swiss Sensation in is the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. With the current roster in the shape that it is in, it's in desperate need of a boost, especially at the top. If neither Dean Ambrose or Roman Reigns aren't turned heel, and Bray Wyatt doesn't receive his rumored push, Cesaro would be a great alternative.
He can carry the WWE through until SummerSlam later this year, when some of the bigger names like Cena and Rollins return. He would be a worthy opponent for Reigns - who is expected to win the championship at WrestleMania 32 - and he is very deserving of the opportunity.
Hopefully, Vince McMahon recognises this and provides him with the chance while the roster is low on top talent due to injury.
