Cesaro recently made his exit from WWE after both the parties could not reach an agreement on his contract. Since then, it has been speculated that ‘The Swiss Superman’ might be on his way to AEW. While stroking those speculations, Ric Flair pitched something he would want to do with Cesaro in AEW.
“I thought his high point was his series of matches with Seth [Rollins]. I liked the Bar, but his matches with Seth Rollins were really really good. I’ve never seen Cesaro have a bad match. If you got the skill, the look and you got the charisma, there’s a place for you on top in either company. Find something that’s different than everybody else. Simple as can be. I would get Cesaro, get him a new manager and make him a heel.”
While expressing his love of managing Cesaro, Flair also praised his skills. The Nature Boy also said that given his strength, he needs to be taught how to be “nasty.” Flair firmly believes Cesaro would be a top wrestler if he managed him.
“Manage him? I’d love it! Then you work on him with little things that make him nasty. You’ve never seen him be nasty. You take a guy with his skill and his strength and teach how to be nasty, just little tricks of the trade, he’d be really hot. If I was managing him, I would call Tony Khan out to the ring and I’d knock him down from behind and have Cesaro give him a giant swing and put him in a hospital for a month. Or Schiavone! I don’t mean just Tony (Khan), but I mean someone that you can really beat the shit out of, just beat the shit out of make it believable, that would be his first night there. Someone questioning his greatness, anybody!”
Cesaro’s former Tag Team partner Sheamus recently revealed that he has been ‘training like crazy’ to make his in-ring return. It would be interesting to see what the future holds for ‘The Swiss Superman.’
