Backstage News on Cesaro's Current Push

cesaroAccording to The Wrestling Observer, Cesaro is likely to win the vacant Intercontinental Title in the Battle Royal taking place at WWE Battleground later this month.

As things currently stand, Cesaro, Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt are the three names WWE has tapped to be in top spots at WrestleMania 31, so Cesaro's recent losses do not mean he's being pushed down the ladder.

Renee Young Gets Big Promotion

WWE has announced that Renee Young has been promoted to the Superstars announce team. Young will join Tom Phillips at the announce table for Superstars beginning with today's episode. Young issued the following comment to WWE.com regarding her new position:

"I feel there is definitely a certain amount of pressure, not only as a performer and broadcaster but representing women who may not even know this is something that they want to do. I can show other women that if you're not a Diva and you still want to be involved in WWE, there's so much you can do. It's definitely really cool to be in the position to create a bit of a niche for myself and other women."

Triple H also commented on Young's promotion by saying the following:

"It has nothing to do with her being a female or not, it has to do with her being the right person for the job. She's got a great voice that cuts through the clutter. She is very knowledgeable about WWE, about its history, about the talent and she is really willing to step up and do her homework."
