Re: Antonio Cesaro: U.S. Champion or European Champion?
They should definitely go with the idea of Cesaro bringing back the European title, but only whilst he is champ. The idea being that Cesaro would do it gain heat, and once he loses the belt that person would bring the US title back to try and get over.
Have Cesaro continue to hold the US title for a few more weeks, doing his promos about touring the states and being disgusted by it's culture and society which would lead to him saying that he no longer wants to represent the fans or the USA as it's US champ. Make it seem like he has just forfeited the title and as the GM is arranging some kind of tournament to crown a new US champ, right before the very first match Cesaro comes out with the European belt round his waist and cuts a promo about how he hasn't forfeited the title and that the tournament to crown a new US champ can't start because he is still the rightful US champ on paper, but he wants to be referred to as the European Champ and represent Europe and his native Switzerland as it's champion.
He defends the title against a few challengers, R-Truth, Kidd, Maybe Mysterio or Cara before finally Swagger who would win the title as a babyface and reinstate the US title which would hopefully cement him as a babyface with the crowd.
