Not everyone can get there. WWE has a lot of wrestlers on its roster and there are only so many who can be at the top of the roster. The problem with that is there are all kinds of wrestlers who seem ready to break through to the next level and a lot of fans are going to be sure that they know the next big thing. WWE might see it differently though, and that seems to be the case with two current stars.
Over the last few years, there are very few names who have seemed ready to break through to the next side without ever actually doing so than Cesaro and Shinsuke Namaura. They seem to have all of the tools that a wrestler could want but the step up has just never gone through. That can get annoying in a hurry for fans, but it turns out that the two of them are not moving up for the same reason.
According to Tom Colohue on the Dropkick DiSKussions podcast, WWE has never pushed Cesaro or Nakamura as a top star due to feeling that neither of them have enough charisma. The two were paired with Sami Zayn so he could help deal with their charisma issues, though with Zayn gone they were moved over to King Corbin for the same reason. Cesaro has mainly wrestled in tag teams over the years while Nakamura has had some World Title shots of his own.
They both have something to offer. Check out the full podcast plus what the two of them can do:
Opinion: Who in the world looks at Nakamura and thinks he doesn’t have charisma? I’m not sure what to think of this as both of them can do all kinds of things, with Nakamura offering the hard strikes and Cesaro having the freakish strength. The problem for these two is that if they can’t get a chance, how can they show what they can do? It must be frustrating and that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
Which of the two has a brighter future? Will either ever get a big singles push? Let us know in the comments below.
