Cesaro was certainly one of the most talented WWE Superstars in the company and many fans believed he was severely underrated. The Swiss Superman displayed impeccable in-ring prowess that set him apart from numerous talents. It seems Ric Flair explained what held Cesaro back in WWE.

As reported earlier, Cesaro quietly departed from WWE after letting his contract expire and not re-signing with the company. This shocked fans and pro wrestlers alike as Cesaro spent almost a decade with WWE.

Cesaro’s exit from the company was more of a WWE decision as the company did not offer him the kind of money that they had offered Kevin Owens and AJ Styles to stay with them.

While speaking on his Wooooo Nation Uncensored show, Ric Flair talked about Cesaro departing from WWE. Ric Flair explained that Cesaro’s inability to cut a promo held him back in the company.


“No, Cesaro never worked as a strong heel. He is such a gifted talent but he lacks what it takes to be really mean. He just never felt that in his heart. You got to be able to turn that switch where you just wanna – where people think you’re gonna kill a guy. When they think you actually will kill someone, fans will want to watch.”

Samoa Joe also wasn’t surprised by Cesaro’s WWE departure. Vince McMahon was also never on board in pushing Cesaro as top talent. It remains to be seen where Cesaro will end up next.
