Big E also suffered a torn meniscus in the match, according to

Sheamus also played a big role on the Raw after WrestleMania 35 as he and Cesaro teamed against WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and Universal Champion Seth Rollins.

“The Celtic Warrior” was conspicuous by his absence Tuesday on SmackDown, as Cesaro offered to team with Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev against Kingston, Xavier Woods and Kevin Owens without any mention of Sheamus.
