Cesaro recently spoke with GMA News Online about where he ended up in the draft, the Muscle Buster possibly being banned and more. You can check out the full interview here along with some highlights below.
If he’s happy with where he ended up in the draft: You know, I was feeling a little bit frustrated that day. I still think Smackdown is a really, really good show—I’m just trying to make Raw the better show. That’s what I’m trying to do right now, I’m making Raw the wrestling show and I think the best of seven between me and Sheamus, that’s the best way to do so because that is just me and Sheamus and it’s about wrestling, and it’s not about the Authority, it’s not about general managers, so I figured we just get a little bit more away from that and back to focusing on the superstars which is done pretty good on Smackdown.
If he would be interested in wrestling Samoa Joe: Yes — maybe without the muscle buster. There’s a couple of moves outlawed in the WWE, and I think that one maybe be added. But I wrestled Samoa Joe before, and why not again?
If Kevin Owens’ title win gives him faith that he can win the big one: I think that’s two completely different circumstances. Kevin Owens won the NXT championship about a week after he got on NXT. I think it was his first NXT… He won it pretty fast after he debuted on NXT. And he came on the WWE main roster challenging John Cena right away and he won the WWE title within his first year or close to his first year. He’s been extremely successful and he definitely deserves the title.
For me, it’s been a completely different road and I’m hoping that I’ll get to the point where I’m gonna be the WWE Universal Champion. I wanna be the proof that hard work pays off.
