WWE’s WrestleMania Backlash event was capped off with a Universal Title match that received quite a bit of time. Cesaro did not do the Swing on Roman Reigns at all, something that many fans noticed as he sold an arm injury throughout the whole match. Some were left concerned that Cesaro was legitimately injured on top of it all.

It was speculated that Cesaro might have injured himself during a fall to the floor early on in the match. He sold that arm injury and then Roman Reigns focused on that body part throughout the match.

Ringside News has been able to confirm that Cesaro was not injured in his WrestleMania Backlash match. He is simply that good at selling and it caused concern amongst fans.


We were told that Cesaro’s arm injury was the “story of the match.” That also included the attack from Seth Rollins after the contest was over. It was all part of the plan and not something improvised to write Cesaro out of the storyline for any injury angle.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
