Does Vince McMahon find Antonio Cesaro boring?

According to Dave Meltzer, the people who are in charge of WWE believe that Antonio Cesaro is boring and that any recent talk about a renewed push was just lip service. Who else could that mean other than Vince McMahon?

Less than two weeks ago it looked like Antonio Cesaro would be rewarded with a renewed push after getting into WWE management's good books for carrying Kofi Kingston to an excellent match on the May 1st episode of WWE Main Event.

However, now it looks like we spoke too soon after Cesaro was seen cleanly jobbing to Randy Orton on last night's Raw in less than three minutes.

Dave Meltzer explained this sudden about face on his subscriber only radio show today:

"The reality is that the people who are in charge believe that Antonio Cesaro is boring. I mean the wrestlers don't, a lot of the other people in the company don't, there are people who think he should be a main eventer, we've talked about him, he's a great worker, but the people who count, you know, they don't see him any higher than they did two weeks ago. I think there was like some lip service and the lip service lasted all of one week and so now it's back to where it was."

Who else could that mean other than Vince McMahon? The problem with wrestling is that you can be a consummate professional, be supremely talented, work super hard, do the best with what you're given, but if your act doesn't get over with the boss, then you can forever languish in mid card purgatory waiting for a shot to breakout. That looks to be the predicament facing Antonio Cesaro at the moment unfortunately, Cagesiders.
