Is a big push in Antonio Cesaro's future? - Anton Jackson of Flickr via Wikimedia Commons

According to Dave Meltzer on his Wrestling Observer radio show yesterday, everyone within WWE recognised how good the Antonio Cesaro vs. Kofi Kingston match on Main Event was and realised that Cesaro deserved most of the credit for it.

After Antonio Cesaro's excellent performance against WWE United States Champion Kofi Kingston on Main Event this week, carrying him to an outstanding match, my colleague Geno Mrosko proclaimed that "Cesaro is awesome and he deserves a bigger push than this."

Well, that might just be about to happen. According to Dave Meltzer on his subscriber only Wrestling Observer radio show yesterday, everyone within the company recognised how good the Cesaro vs. Kingston match was and realised that Cesaro deserved most of the credit for it.

However, the proof in the pudding as to whether it makes a blind jot of difference to Cesaro's career will be how he's treated on Monday Night Raw tomorrow. As Meltzer joked, they may decide to just keep beating him as he's talented enough to retain his heat or have him win a secondary championship which is often the kiss of death nowadays, rather than reward him with a program with a top babyface like Randy Orton or Sheamus.

Unfortunately the latter is unlikely to happen straight away, given it would mess with the creative team's plans for Extreme Rules, but it does bode well for Cesaro's future once all the current feuds run their course.

What do you think, Cagesiders? Will this week's Main Event match be a positive turning point for Cesaro's WWE run and if so, then is it something you're happy to see?
