Mike Johnson of PWInsider reported that the ‘Swiss Superman‘ Cesaro has quietly left WWE after his contract expired. Cesaro was not satisfied with the new offer and thus decided to leave. In recent days, it has become a tradition that once a top WWE star leaves the company, the fans want them to join AEW. Now, the tradition continues. The fans are hovering over Twitter suggesting him to become All Elite.
I’m normally against AEW taking little petty shots at WWE but having Cesaro grab the brass ring at the end of that Revolution ladder match is one they should do isn’t it?

Why do fans want Cesaro in AEW?
Cesaro is pound for pound, one of the strongest wrestlers in the world of pro-wrestling. We have seen so many former WWE superstars show up on AEW. The latest is Buddy Matthews, formerly known as Buddy Murphy. Cesaro had a great last year in WWE. He wrestled in his first singles match at WrestleMania last year. For over a decade, the Swiss Cyborg has been an innovative wrestler, defying the odds, doing the unthinkable and entertaining the fans.
Apparently, the contract negotiations did not go well and thus Cesaro is not with the company. The fans want the Swiss Cyborg to become All Elite for multiple reasons. AEW gives more creative freedom to its wrestlers and the wrestlers need not read lines during promos but rather say whatever they feel like. The most important thing to note is that AEW is a Pro-Wrestling company and not a Sports Entertainment company.

Is AEW the right move for Cesaro?
Everything I have mentioned above makes AEW the perfect place for Cesaro. But at the same time, it is not the right place either. Already AEW is stacked with superstars. Yes, Cesaro is amazing, but then again, every superstar who left WWE and signed with AEW are all exceptional talents.
People are upset with WWE for firing a lot of great talent, but they do not realise that WWE has a plethora of talent and can work on growing the superstars they have rather than hold on to stars that can shine better elsewhere. This is becoming a problem for AEW as well. Tony Khan is signing superstars left and right. Having too many wrestlers on a single roster will lead to most of them just sitting back in catering. Thus, AEW is not the right place for Cesaro, he can shine anywhere else. He will definitely be a star anywhere else.
With all that being said, Cesaro is still part of the ‘Current Roster‘ list on WWE’s website. Usually, WWE updates its roster list on a regular, so if the Swing Machine is still part of the active roster, maybe WWE and the Swiss Cyborg are still trying to work out a deal.
Do you want to see Cesaro in AEW? What do you think he can do there?
