Sometime between when the rash of injuries in WWE started and the beginning of the year, we’d all managed to convince each other that all of the injured guys would somehow make it back before they were scheduled to return. Cena would be back for WrestleMania to face Undertaker. Bryan would win the Rumble. Seth Rollins would win the Rumble, too, and Cesaro would be back any day now. Well, reality is a motherf*cker and it’s letting us know that our heroes are going to be gone for a while.
Cesaro put it into his own words that he won’t be back in time for WrestleMania during an interview with The National:
Getting hurt at a bad time
“I was enjoying it quite a bit and injuries never happen at a good time,” Cesaro off his spell on the sidelines coming after he had enjoyed entertaining rivalries with John Cena and Kevin Owens. “It was a good run but I hope I can take up where I left off when I come back. Two to three months would be a good target, hopefully sooner, but like I said, it is a case of how quickly I heal.”
On coping with the likelihood of missing WrestleMania 32
“It is very hard, but I am trying to stay positive and get through rehab and coming here to the UAE and seeing how enthusiastic the fans are has helped. I was also in Germany recently and seeing how supportive they were really helps keep a positive mindset.”
He also went on to talk about the Daniel Bryan retirement that shook up wrestling.
On Daniel Bryan’s retirement
“Yes, it was a definitely a shock. I was hoping it was not true at first. It makes you very sad as Bryan was a good friend of mine. I have known him for over 10 years and you do not want to see that happen to one of your friends. But I am very happy he was able to kind of end it on his terms.”
Yes, this is all still very depressing. On the bright side, we can still see Cesaro bring flowers to Tyson Kidd every week on Total Divas.
