One of the most frustrating superstars to watch in all of WWE today is Cesaro, not because he isn’t talented, but because he isn’t given enough opportunities to showcase his talent.
If we’re talking about stars with talent and what they should rightfully achieve in the WWE, then Cesaro should be sitting on top of either Monday Night Raw or SmackDown Live as the World Champion.
He falls under the same bracket as Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Sami Zayn and many more. He's one of the many that made a name for himself on the independent scene before achieving great success on the main roster.

However, while Rollins and Owens have enjoyed great success, perhaps even Zayn with his run on NXT; Cesaro has been limited to mid-card championships.
There’s nothing wrong with holding the mid-card title; any honour is a big honour in the WWE and Cesaro can look back at a proud career in the company.
However, we’ve seen the legitimate frustration from him, from where he was picked in the draft to the show he was on, even he understands that SmackDown was the show for him to break out and grab the brass ring Vince McMahon wanted him to grab.
LACK OF FAITH
The lack of faith and lack of opportunities probably do stack up, and it won’t be a surprise to see Cesaro as the latest star to walk out of the company.
Despite what his fans might think of him, as well as their thoughts on his career and opportunities, it’s safe to say that Cesaro will probably never become a World Champion.
While walking out of the WWE seems like a hasty decision to make, it doesn’t mean his wrestling career is over, nowadays it seems like the popular decision to take because of the number of opportunities available to them.
The WWE may book Cesaro come back from 3-0 down against Sheamus to win 4-3, but the truth is that it probably will make no difference whatsoever to where they take him from here.
Chances are, he’ll get a title shot, and he’ll probably lose before falling down the pecking order again.
He has a huge following now, so if he was to walk away from the WWE, he’d have legions of fans turning out to independent shows such as PWG or Ring of Honor, maybe even Japan where he can achieve huge things.
PLENTY OF OPTIONS
Lucha Underground seems to be an attractive option as well, and it could prove to be the platform he needs to improve on the microphone work which many ridicule him for, as it's a character-driven company.
He only needs to look at others for inspiration, Cody Rhodes is enjoying life on the independent scene, Ryback is exploring other options while Wade Barrett is trying his hand at acting.
We can even stretch this back further, John Morrison and Evan Bourne left the company and are now two of the most sought-after stars as Johnny Mundo and Matt Sydal.
While it may seem like a cynical post bashing Cesaro, if he’s to save his career and make the WWE notice him for the talent he is, leaving the company and breaking out elsewhere may be the only option he has left.
If he goes through with it, soon it could be the WWE that are chasing him.
