What’s Bothering Me: Cesaro/IWC, Bret Hart Shoots, Swagger

Antonio Cesaro#2. Antonio Cesaro

I'm sorry in advance, but here I go again. I feel the need to counter all the praise and support certain public figures within the IWC are once again giving the current United States Champion, Antonio Cesaro.

We all see talent and potential in Cesaro, there's no question, but let's pump the breaks a bit when it comes to his "guaranteed stardom". There's hundreds of talented wrestlers out there that never reach their full potential. Cesaro could be another one of those examples just as easy as he could become one of the few to actually break through and make it to the top.

His strengths are obvious and clear: he's an above-average worker and has incredible strength for his size. He can talk as well, although I could just as easily put this in the "Cons" category because his current gimmick holds him back on the mic, in my opinion.

What could potentially hurt Cesaro: his size, gimmick, Creative, and timing. Those unknown variables are too great for me to jump on his bandwagon this early.

"Entertainment" is still the most crucial element to finding success in the pro wrestling business today. And Antonio Cesaro, current form, is nowhere near entertaining enough to be taken serious on a main event, big-time level. Not now, maybe not ever.
