WWE Superstar: Antonio Cesaro
Height: 6' 5"
From: Lucerne, Switzerland
Championships Reigns: United States Champion
The cool and collected Antonio Cesaro has been making the most of the "big push" pro wrestling speculators have been alluding to. With an increase of appearances on RAW Cesaro continues to showcase his much-hyped strength, and, as of late, the agility and innovations which made him a draw pre-WWE.
But what if he wins the Royal Rumble Match?
Cesaro, with his physical attributes, athleticism, and high in-ring IQ, would be a surprising but believable victor. Surely WWE's younger or more casual followers may scratch their heads after seeing him win the 30-man over-the-top-rope match. Pro wrestling purists, though, may peak at the prospect of Cesaro likely challenging the reigning World Heavyweight Champion.
As WWE works to build and establish new main event Superstars, Cesaro winning in front of a sold-out US Airways Center would be one heck of an introduction to main event status.
Royal Rumble Winners: Jim Duggan (1988), Big John Stud ('89), Hulk Hogan ('90, '91), Rick Flair ('92), Yokozuna ('93), Brett Hart/Lex Lugar ('94), Shawn Michaels ('95, '96), Steve Austin ('97, '98), Mr. McMahon ('99), The Rock (2000), Steve Austin ('01), Triple H ('02), Brock Lesnar ('03), Chris Benoit ('04), Batista ('05), Rey Mysterio ('06), The Undertaker ('07), John Cena ('08), Randy Orton ('09), Edge ('10), Alberto Del Rio ('11), Sheamus ('12)
