From the WWE Rumor Mill: Cesaro receives standing ovation for wrestling through injury at No Mercy
What’s the story?
Cesaro suffered a gruesome injury at the No Mercy pay-per-view and continued to wrestle through the pain. Matt Morgan of the Wrestling Inc. podcast said that the Swiss Cyborg received a standing ovation for his trouble. You can find Morgan's comments around the 18:00-minute mark.
In case you didn’t know...
Cesaro and Sheamus faced Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose in a rematch for the Raw Tag Team Championships. Five minutes into their match, Ambrose catapulted Cesaro into the corner, but the inaugural Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner came down in a manner which resulted in an awful looking injury to his teeth.
Many assumed that Cesaro lost his teeth, but a report from WWE medical personnel said that Cesaro’s front teeth were pushed up into his upper jaw.
The heart of the matter
After all four men delivered what many called the match of the night, Cesaro received immediate medical attention backstage and received three stitches in his bottom lip to close the wound.
On the Wrestling INC podcast, former WWE superstar Matt Morgan said that he was told by one of his friends who still worked for the company that Cesaro received a standing ovation for putting on a fantastic match despite the injuries.
WWE also said that Cesaro is visiting a maxillofacial surgeon, a surgeon dealing with the jaw and the face, to resolve the issue so Cesaro can return to the ring as soon as possible.
Though Cesaro didn’t lose any teeth during his match at No Mercy, the report from WWE says that he will more than likely have to get his teeth removed and have some implants made.
Cesaro was absent from Monday Night Raw but is expected back once he deals with his dental issues.
Cesaro deserved every last second of that standing ovation after his hard work and perseverance at No Mercy. If anyone doubted his toughness before, they can't have anything but respect now.
