The WWE Universe has been scratching its head as of late, wondering where exactly the new United States champion Antonio Cesaro has disappeared to.
Since defeating Santino Marella for the title nearly two weeks ago, Cesaro has been a virtual ghost on WWE programming, possibly as the company decides exactly where to take his character and with whom he will have his first feud as champion.
This prospective opponent will have a difficult task ahead of them. While most fans can agree that Cesaro's in-ring work is innovative and brutal, at times his character seems to be a bit boring. The introduction of Aksana as his valet was meant to aid this issue, but it may be doing more harm than good.
Prior to his WWE run, Cesaro made a name for himself on the independent wrestling scene by letting his wrestling do the talking and making his character a secondary feature.
However, now that he has the belt—and in turn a share of the spotlight—is it time for the Swiss superstar to ramp up the charisma?
Is this run meant to make him better and launch his mainstream wrestling career? Is it just a temporary solution until the company can decide which other superstar might be more deserving of the title?
Either way, the all important issue is who Cesaro will compete against going forward, as there are many hungry and deserving superstars that would be champing at the bit for the opportunity.
