For those wondering why WWE has cooled off Cesaro’s character and kept him as a heel, the word is that it’s being done intentionally. Cesaro was slated to be one of the guys that was set to get a major push late this summer. However, the company has decided (before Daniel Bryan got injured) to put the big focus on John Cena, Daniel Bryan, and Sheamus (his push has been cooled down because of the way they treat secondary champions). Cesaro is slated for a babyface push though but not anytime soon. The idea with him is that they’ll do it “when we need it.” That would likely be after the big push for Reigns has been established and they need Cesaro as a rising star.
