WWE star Cesaro and Sami Zayn was not featured in WWE programming for a while and it is not understood why WWE didn’t use him and Cesaro, and they have not suffered any injury as well. This is another case of the company not having for them to do at this time, prior to their return on Friday. Brock Lesnar ‘Removed’ From WWE Smackdown
Zayn and Cesaro are not injured
According to a report from Fightful Select, Zayn and Cesaro are not injured. They’re just not being used on television right now. Cesaro was also backstage at last week’s SmackDown, but he wasn’t used.
We’ve had several inquiries regarding Sami Zayn and Cesaro and Sami Zayn being off TV. In asking around to several WWE sources, we’ve not heard anything regarding injuries for either wrestler despite not having matches of late. In fact, we heard that Cesaro was backstage at last week’s episode of Smackdown.
It is quite interesting that WWE is not using Cesaro and Zayn for quite some time now. Fans have seemingly been in favor of them and responded well to their involvement but that apparently WWE Chairman is against the use of the stars.
