Cesaro’s victory in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royale at WrestleMania XXX, as well as the announcement of his new partnership with Paul Heyman the following night, should ensure that 2014 will be his year.

After months and months wavering about just what to do with the Swiss, WWE has finally saw sense and strapped the rocket to him.

It may have taken a while, but management has grasped just how talented the 33-year-old is.

Cesaro’s alliance with Paul Heyman will also be a huge positive for the wrestler going forward. With one of wrestling’s greatest managers ever in your corner, how can you not succeed?

(Unless, of course, your name happens to be Curtis Axel.)

Granted, there’s a bit of a strange dynamic to the new Cesaro/Heyman pairing. Heyman is a clear-cut heel, while Cesaro has been strongly leaning towards being a babyface over the last few weeks.

Ideally, WWE will clear up the confusion soon, and we will get a solid idea of where things are going.

Maybe Heyman will become a good guy? It would be something new, at least.

And the announcement that he was Cesaro’s new manager did get an enormously positive reaction from the Raw crowd. Despite his evil on-screen character, fans recognize Heyman’s phenomenal talents—many are desperate to like and cheer him.

Judging by Raw, Cesaro looks to be headed for a feud with former tag team partner Jack Swagger (Swagger, under orders from Zeb Colter, viciously destroyed Cesaro’s prestigious Andre the Giant Memorial trophy).

Zeb doesn't take the news of Cesaro getting a new manager too well.

Presumably, Cesaro will emerge from the program victorious and then head further up the card.  

This isn’t to suggest that it is all clear sailing for the star.

Reports (from F4Wonline via WrestlingInc) emerged last year that some higher-ups in management found his overall character and gimmick “boring” and that this was the main reason he didn’t receive more of a push.

While the company clearly does have faith in the star right now, as shown by his victory at WrestleMania and renewed push, you have to wonder if the addition of Heyman as a mouthpiece is a sign of its concern that Cesaro can’t get over on his own.

Will Cesaro be a main eventer soon?

Are there still lingering doubts over his potential as a top headliner? And will this hinder him in the future?

Let’s hope not, because the former Ring of Honor star really does have the potential to go places in WWE.

He has the in-ring talent, the charisma and, despite what WWE thinks, the mic skills to get over enormously in 2014.
