Cesaro is one of the most talented WWE superstars on the main roster. Arguably the best pound-for-pound wrestler in the company, The Swiss Sensation is a massive hit with the WWE Universe, who have their own Cesaro Section dedicated to him.
Since making his main roster debut in the WWE back in April 2012, the 35-year-old has only gone on to win two championships - the United States Championship and the Tag Team Championship alongside Tyson Kidd - as well as the inaugural Andre the Giant Battle Royal at WrestleMania 30.
After that Andre the Giant Battle Royal win in April 2014, many fans thought this was the start of a major push for Cesaro in the WWE, especially after he announced Paul Heyman was becoming his new manager, a man famous for managing main event talent in the WWE like CM Punk and Brock Lesnar.

However, when things didn't go as planned, fans were left disappointed, but they still supported The King of Swing wherever he went. The strength of the Cesaro Section grew, as more and more people spoke about his potential success on the main event stage, receiving high praise from the likes of Mick Foley, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Ric Flair.
Back in December 2014, when Vince McMahon was asked about Cesaro's potential on the Stone Cold podcast by Steve Austin - which can be viewed on the WWE Network - Vince said the following:
“He’s not connecting yet, I hope he will. I mean he doesn’t quite have the charisma. He doesn’t quite have the verbal skills as well. It may be because he’s Swiss. I don’t know in terms of the European style. But those are the big things that he’s lacking.
"The audience needs to care about you. They need to be able to feel your presence. You need to be able to project that. Extraordinary, physical talent. Extraordinary. But at the moment, and hopefully he’ll get it, he lacks it.”
Now, recent rumors have suggested that push for Cesaro may be finally coming around once more.
According to Cageside Seats: "Cesaro's recent success on WWE television is apparently due to a renewed push that could lead to bigger and better things. Whatever that means."
His recent success being he is the new number one contender for the Intercontinental Championship. He won the title shot after defeating Kevin Owens on Monday Night Raw last week. His match for the championship against The Miz will take place at Payback on May 1.
We could expect The Swiss Sensation to pick up the title here, but if this push is leading 'to bigger and better things', he might not have it for long because he'll be in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture instead. Either way, Cesaro as a champion or in the main title picture would be great sights to see.
