Josh Isenberg: This could be huge for Cesaro. I really do think Antonio has all the tools to be great in the WWE. He can thank some of the veterans for putting him over via Twitter, online, and other media outlets. When you have vocal opinions of Chris Jericho praising your work, you know you are doing something right. Much like Swagger, Cesaro has the mouthpiece of Colter to balance. Sometimes a great manager can hurt the progression of your character. I think this is the complete opposite for Cesaro. Antonio is a great choice to win the briefcase because it will automatically propel him in the situation of success. He is the only guy that is actually winning week to week. Even though he is squashing jobbers, Cesaro is the second most dominant guy over the past month that is featured in this match. Cesaro and Colter are polar opposites, and that is a great thing for a young guy like him. I can easily see Cesaro winning the briefcase, have Swagger become jealous, and ultimately put Cesaro in the World Heavyweight Championship picture.
Mike Killam: If I still did the old "Booker T Fave Five" thing, Antonio Cesaro would definitely be in it. Unfortunately, he's not quite getting over with the crowd, and apparently the "higher ups" think he's boring. I keep holding on to hope that with Triple H in charge, Cesaro will be more appreciated. If there's anybody who can get him over as a heel, it's the fantastically consistent Zeb Colter character. The Swiss Superman is a future world champion, mark my words. I think he's got a pretty decent chance of winning Money this year, actually. But there's something about being paired alongside Jack Swagger that complicates the picture too much for me to go out on that limb.
