It has been a tough week for Cesaro. First he fell short in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match at Money in the Bank, then on Monday night he suffered an upset loss against Kofi Kingston. While it was the Swiss Superman that ended up standing tall thanks to a brutal post-match attack, he still carries battle scars from the incident.
Cesaro suffered the injury as a result of a poked finger in the eye from Kingston that rendered his eye red and swollen. “We did some specialized testing and staining of the eye which showed he did have a scratch on the right side of the eye, which is called the sclera and not on the cornea, which is the clear part of the eye,” said WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann yesterday. “We’re going to keep his eye patched for the next 24-48 hours, use some artificial tears and re-evaluate him tomorrow prior to his match [against Dolph Ziggler on WWE Main Event].”
Later yesterday afternoon, WWE.com issued an update on Cesaro’s condition. “He’s feeling much better and other than a little bit of bruising around the eye itself, everything is normal on his exam,” explained Amann. “He will be cleared to compete.”
