Meltzer On Why Cesaro Hasnít Been Pushed As A Main Event Superstar.

"Cesaro who is widely seen as one of the most talented wrestlers on the WWE roster yet he's never really reached main event scene in any significant capacity due to Vince McMahon, according to Dave Meltzer on Twitter.

Metlzer was asked by a follower why Cesaro isn't a main event talent, to which Meltzer simply responded "Vince McMahon. Nothing more."

The suggestion Vince McMahon is not a fan on Cesaro isn't a new one, just last year, Bryan Alvarez, also of F4WOnline, explained why Vince McMahon doesn't see Cesaro as a main event talent:

ďThe craziest thing about Cesaro is, you know how heís great in the ring, and he has great wrestling charisma, and he looks great, and he always wears a suit, and somehow Vince McMahon finds the man boring. Thatís the whole reason why heís not getting a push.Ē

Cesaro had one shot to be a main eventer after WrestleMania 30 when he had a lot of momentum and they didnít follow through. Thatís on WWE.

But since then? I really canít see he absolutely should be a main eventer. The guy is a hoss. He can do it al the ring. Heís had some great matches in the mid card. Heís had some great moments in 3 separate tag teams. Heís clearly over.

But I havenít seen that one moment outside of him wrestling, besides WrestleMania 30, where I think ďyep, he should be in the main event scene.Ē With the brand split, maybe he gets that shot down the line though.

Yeah, its obvious Vince aint a big fan of Cesaro. He basically buried him on the Austin podcast.

Cesaro is a little boring, sure, but hes pretty talented and very underrated on the mic, people act like he can barely speak but he can do well when given opportunities. I still feel Cesaro's time will come eventually.

Look I love Cesaro but he isn't really a main event level talent, at least not right now.

But then again bums like Balor are main eventing so why not lol

Ye I find him boring tbh

Even in the ring he bores me a bit, the swing for one really does my head in & the uppercut spam

I love Cesaro and I think he's more entertaining than a lot of people think he is.

That being said I don't really see him as a maineventer. He should always be used in a prominent role around IC/US/TAG titles and serve as a gate keeper to the main event. I feel the same way about Kofi. I did feel that way about Miz but after the year he's had I could be sold on a main event run for him.

Re: Meltzer On Why Cesaro Hasnít Been Pushed As A Main Event Superstar.

The thing is, I don't want Cesaro as a permanent main eventer right now. I just want him to be given the opportunity to impress. I don't see why Vince doesn't throw him in a title match on a B pay-per view. He can't prove himself to be uppercard talent if he spends his days in tag teams or on pre-shows. Put Cesaro in the mainevent of COC, HITC or Roadblock and it would have achieved the same thing as they got with Rollins and Reigns. If anything KO would have got more heat for screwing Cesaro since Reigns isn't over and Rollin's turn was botched, and Cesaro would have the chance to prove himsef .

I like Cesaro right now, I think he works well as a face and he's an awesome wrestler but there is something about him where I just can't see him as a main eventer, where as a guy like Sami Zayn, who doesn't look as good as Cesaro, but I can see him being a World champion one day.

Even Cesaro fans don't view him as a main eventer, so it's no surprise Vince doesn't.

Nothing wrong with that, he's great for what he is and it's always better for the world to think "Cesaro is underrated!" than to have people criticising him in a more prominent role (which would happen).

Cesaro is best when you don't expect much from him.

You know why I don't push him, it's because he's Swiss damn it.

Cesaro is very good in his role as a tag team specialist and IC/US contender or champion.
