Cesaro makes long awaited WWE return on post-WrestleMania Raw

Published 6 Comments

The Raw after WrestleMania is always a highly anticipated event as it usually has more twists and turns than the normal weekly broadcast.

Last night's show in Dallas, Texas was no different as the likes of Enzo and Cass, Baron Corbin and Appolo Crews made their main roster debuts and AJ Styles became the number one contender for Roman Reigns' Heavyweight title.

Welcome back

Probably the biggest surprise of the night, however, was the return to in-ring action of one of the WWE's most popular Superstars, Cesaro.

The Swiss wrestler has been out of action since he underwent surgery on a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder back in November, 2015. Having been well and truly over with the WWE crowd at the time, it was a big loss for the organization.

As you might expect, then, his return on Raw received a huge pop from the WWE Universe in attendance.

It came in a Fatal 4-way match set up by Shane McMahon to find a new number one contender for the top title. Cesaro wasn't initially included in the match, but after Kevin Owens had seen to it that Sami Zayn couldn't compete, the big European took his place.

As alluded to earlier, the wasn't able to make it a victorious return to action as AJ Styles ultimately won out to get his shot at Reigns.

That doesn't mean there wasn't time for Cesaro to remind WWE fans of just what a force he can be. Simultaneously powerbombing all three of Chris Jericho, Owens and Styles made that very clear:

Moving forward

It will be interesting to see how the WWE move forward with Cesaro's character now that he is back in the thick of the action.

Before he was forced out through injury, the likes of Mick Foley, Ric Flair and Stone Cold Steve Austin had all championed the Swiss native's cause as a potential future World Champion.

The fans too, with their Cesaro section, have been calling for the Superstar to be given his chance higher up the card.

With several other big names stars still out of action with their own injury issues - see Seth Rollins and Randy Orton - now certainly seems like a good time for the WWE to give Cesaro the push many have been craving.

Only time will tell if that is the company's plan moving forward. For now, though, we can at least enjoy the fact that Cesaro is back doing what he does best.
