– On Monday’s Raw, Antonio Cesaro took on John Cena in a one-on-one match before both men entered the Elimination Chamber match this Sunday.
The match both men put on was a clinic on professional wrestling. The crowd was into the match from the get-go and they certainly voiced their pleasure to both men with a loud “This is awesome” chant. Apparently the crowd is not alone in their appreciation for the match.
According to F4Wonline.com, Cesaro received a standing ovation when he stepped back through the curtain after his match. SEScoops.com reports that Vince McMahon was certainly apart of that ovation, as he was very pleased with Cesaro’s effort in that match. That report also says that Vince has finally realize how much potential Cesaro has.
Cesaro clearly has a lot of potential and it would be great if the people backstage are realizing that. He doesn’t have the typical skill-set that a WWE Superstar has, but he in his recent push he has certainly started to get over, and it would be nice to see how far they could take him.
– A report over the weekend said that CM Punk was released from his WWE contract. Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that that is not the case.
There was some confusion regarding the status of Punk, and his real-life girlfriend AJ Lee after the two were spotted together over the weekend.
It’s a non-story though, the Divas Champion was merely given the weekend off and she is still with the company. Punk is still under contract with the company.
