Cesaro was one of the most criminally underrated WWE Superstars in the history of the company. The Swiss Superman had shown on numerous occasions why he was one of the best in-ring performers in the company. It seems Eric Bischoff commented on Cesaro’s WWE departure as well.

It came to such a point that even WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley said he would literally get on his knees and beg Vince McMahon to give Cesaro chance in the company.

Unfortunately, Cesaro left WWE recently after his contract expired and he did not sign another contract with the company. This came as a surprise for many as fans felt Cesaro could have achieved more in WWE.

While speaking on the 83 Weeks Podcast, Eric Bischoff talked about Cesaro making his way to AEW. Bischoff made it clear he doubts Cesaro will go to AEW as it has a very crowded roster right now.


“This is going to sound like I’m taking a shot at AEW, I’m cheering them on believe it or not, but if I’m Cesaro and I’m looking at AEW, do I really want to go there right now? I mean great you signed for big money and you’re going to be the new shiny object in AEW for a night and then after you make your debut, what happens, Christian? What happens, Jay Lethal? What happens? You go there and disappear after your first big debut and it’s not a bad thing, it is if you’re a talent and want to perform, but there is a lot of talent right now in AEW.

A lot of talent. Not everybody is getting a lot of TV time, if you’ve been in WWE and you’re leaving because you just haven’t been able to break out of the pack and get that top guy push, what makes you think it’s going to be any different in AEW right now? Because it’s got such a crowded roster of top guys.

Is Cesaro that guy that is going to be different than everybody else that’s come in over the last year? Maybe and if he is great, that would be a great move. If I’m Cesaro and Cesaro’s agent, I would go the [independent route]. Take a year and build your equity, build your stock in Japan, go to Europe, spend some time in the UK and do your own thing, go to Mexico, make a name for yourself, wait for the dust to settle on the AEW side a little bit and you’re not coming in as one of 25 people brought in as the next big surprise.

Let the dust settle in and then take your shot, that makes sense to me, it all depends on what his goals are. If Cesaro wants to break through the middle, which is where he has been stuck for whatever reason, I’m not sure going to AEW is the best way to get out of that right now.”

Cesaro has also not received an offer from AEW as of yet. Vince McMahon was also never on board in pushing Cesaro as top talent. It remains to be seen where Cesaro will end up next.
