Former WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Cesaro had a rough night earlier today (Sun. September 24, 2017) at the WWE's No Mercy pay-per-view (PPV), so rough that it cost him a few teeth.
Cesaro began his professional wrestling career back in 2000 in Europe. After four years in the European scene he began doing work for promotions such as Chikara, Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), Ring Of Honor (ROH), Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), Pro Westling Noah (PWN), and many more before signing a deal with WWE in 2011. He was sent to the company's then-developmental territory of Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) where he feuded with the likes of Curtis Axel, Chris Hero, and Richie Steamboat.
He made his main roster debut in 2012 during an episode of SmackDown in a backstage segment alongside Theodore Long and Aksana. He would go on to defeat Santino Marella for the United States Championship at SummerSlam to win his first singles title in WWE.
Cesaro later joined Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter to form The Real Americans, which would break up at WrestleMania 30 after Cesaro and Swagger had a falling out. Later on in the night Cesaro was a surprise entrant in the inaugural Andre The Gian Memorial Battle Royal, which he won by body slamming The Big Show out of the ring last to secure the victory.
For a period of time Cesaro's push slowly began to go away as Vince McMahon admitted on the Stone Cold podcast on the WWE Network that "The Swiss Superman" was missing something before he could go to the next level, but he wasn't going to give up on finding it.
After an injury that kept him sidelined for a significant amount of time, Cesaro returned to begin feuding with Sheamus in an epic rivalry that saw them compete in a best of seven series. When it was all said and done, however, the pair formed an alliance and became the most dominant tag team on Monday Nights.
They would go on to win the RAW Tag Team Championships from future Hall Of Famers, The Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff Hardy), but would later drop those titles to the reunited duo of Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose at SummerSlam last month.
The pair got their rematch earlier today, and during the match Cesaro was launched into the turnbuckle by Ambrose by securing both his legs, but Cesaro appeared to actually hit himself on the barrier on the mouth, and when the camera focused on him WWE fans could visibly see that he was missing multiple teeth:
To make matters worse for Cesaro, Ambrose and Rollins would go on to win the match, putting a halt in Sheamus and Cesaro's title aspirations for a while moving forward.
