At the time of writing, there are multiple reports that WWE Superstar Cesaro has been injured, and could be out for four to six months with a shoulder injury.
Sadly, injuries have taken their toll on many of WWE's top talent recently, with Randy Orton suffering a shoulder injury, Sting suffering a spinal injury, Seth Rollins tearing his ACL and Rusev injuring his leg.
This leaves this writer scratching his head and beginning to ponder the theoretical. Who could step up and take Orton, Rusev, Cesaro or even Rollins' place?

The immediate answer lies in the talent pool of NXT. There are a plethora of men able and willing to step up into the fray and make a name for themselves.
Finn Balor has proven that undoubtedly he can wrestle. His face paint and ring attire appeals to the kids, whilst his physique appeals to a certain demographic of WWE fans. Yet, most importantly, his wrestling ability appeals to most wrestling fans.
Literally all of Balor's NXT matches have been highlights and could easily headline an independent wrestling promotion's card.
With the recent booking of Balor going over Sheamus at house shows, it may be sooner rather than later that we see Balor rise through the main shows roster.
Samoa Joe vs John Cena. Samoa Joe vs Brock Lesnar. Samoa Joe vs Roman Reigns.
All of these matches are dream matches. All of these matches are possible if and when Samoa Joe is brought to the main roster.
Needless to say, Samoa Joe on the main roster means big things.
Pushed through the roof, this young wrestler has undeniable talent.
Known formerly as Uhaa Nation, he has proven in Dragon Gate USA that he has the talent required to make an impact in the WWE.
With the roster thinning so quickly, it could be only a matter of time before we see Crews hold a mid-title card.
