Antonio Cesaro won the United States Championship by defeating the jobberiffic Santino Marella during the SummerSlam 2012 pre-show. Since then, his opponents have consisted of Marella, Brodus Clay, Zack Ryder and Justin Gabriel.
These challengers are also known as jobbers.
Cesaro has not been able to make the impact that he has the potential to because of the lack of competition. WWE has the superstars to give Cesaro a decent fight, so it is unclear why his challengers have come from so low on the card.
With that said, I will discuss five superstars who would give Antonio Cesaro some serious contention, as they come from the upper midcard or even the main event level. In fact, all five superstars are former World champions in WWE.
