WWE: Did Cesaro Give John Cena The Middle Finger During Raw?
... In short, no. But it certainly looked as if he may have...
Some viewers following the show on the West Coast of the US were left puzzled by a brief blackout on their screens during the Swiss superman's outstanding match with US champ Cena.
But as you can tell in the GIF above, Cesaro wasn't actually flipping the bird in a Stone Cold Steve Austin fashion.
WWE legend Stone Cold is just one of Cesaro's supporters who believe he is one element away from being a headliner - but in shoving his ring finger in Cena's face, the sublime performer cleverly avoided any gimmick infringement... and hacking off TV bosses.
Fans lapped up the nod to Vince McMahon's 'brass ring' comment, too.
@benwest897 everyone should flip Cena off. Even if it's only their ring finger. Cesaro is best.

Cesaro "flipping the bird" but with his RING finger is a subtle/brilliant nod to all the Brass Ring stuff #RAW

Quite the night for 34-year-old ace. Not content with stealing the show, he also received plaudits for his classy tributes to injured tag partner Tyson Kidd, currently recovering from neck surgery.
