Cesaro recently spoke to Sport 360 about Daniel Bryan’s retirement, missing WrestleMania 32 and how soon he expects to return to the ring. You can check out the full interview in the clip above and read some highlights below.
When he will be returning to the ring:
“According to the doctors, it’s probably going to be another two or three months. I hate to say it, but [WrestleMania 32] is probably too soon.” Cesaro explained, “it’s like the worst time to be hurt, not that there’s a good time to be hurt, but it’s probably the worst time of the year to be hurt. Missing the Rumble, missing WrestleMania, it’s our high season.”
How close his character is to his real life personality:
“I kind of feel like it became the same, as in, they always say, ‘your character is an extension of yourself or whatever you portray’ and I think that is certainly the case for the more successful characters of the past in WWE. And I think also in the future or currently, if you look at someone like Daniel Bryan, what you saw on the screen is very reflective of [of who he is as a person] and I think fans feel that. For me, yeah, of course, when you get on TV and you walk through that curtain, it’s just that little extra oomph of adrenaline and personality out there. I mean, I’m not walking around here swinging and uppercutting people, obviously. I could. Just kidding. So, to me, it’s very close. I just try to be as authentic as possible and that’s fun to me.”
