5 Storylines for Cesaro if he joins SmackDown Live


With rumours running rampant of a potential trade-off between Raw and SmackDown, how would Cesaro fit in on the Team Blue brand?

Cesaro wrestled with Ring of Honour before joining the WWE.

Back and forth tweets between SmackDown GM Daniel Bryan and Raw Superstar Cesaro have set the WWE Universe alight with excitement. Since the draft took place on July 17th Cesaro seems to have been lost in the shuffle on Monday nights.

On the day of the draft, Cesaro went on a rant filled with frustration and raw (excuse the pun) emotion. Daniel Bryan on Talking Smack claimed RAW were not utilising Cesaro enough and he deserved more opportunities. Cesaro, who I feel is a main-event level talent, would provide interesting and fresh matchups for the SmackDown brand. I've taken a look at where the Swiss Superman would fit into the SmackDown's roster and who he'd most likely feud with.


5: Randy Orton

In his first match against Orton, Cesaro defeated him clean on SmackDown.

The last time these two locked up they put on a 5* star match that left the WWE Universe drooling. If not for the storyline this feud should happen just for the great wrestling and athletic ability that would be displayed. I wouldn't mind seeing a best of seven series between these two great athletes. Imagine the reversal of an RKO into a European uppercut, just imagine.  

Perhaps for this feud, we could turn Randy heel, he would be a despicable heel that knows he's good in the ring but always takes shortcuts to gain a win. As a heel, it would hurt Randy less to eventually put Cesaro over. The premise of this feud would be action and wrestling rather character building or promos. This pairing would have great matches, a definitive face vs. heel dynamic and Cesaro would be elevated. What's there not to love?
