After his contract expired last month, former WWE Superstar Cesaro decided to make his exit from WWE. During his run in WWE, the Swiss Superman worked with and against Sheamus. The duo held the Tag Team Championship on both RAW and SmackDown and was named the WWE Tag Team of the Year in 2018. In a recent interview, The Celtic Warrior discussed his former tag team partner and how much potential he had.
While speaking with Joey Hayden of DallasNews.com, Sheamus noted that The Swiss Superman is hungrier than he has ever been. On Cesaro leaving the company and the legacy he left behind, Sheamus firmly declared that Cesaro would always be one of the greatest and had a lot left to offer.
“Honestly, when we started, Cesaro was like an acquaintance. When we started The Bar, we became brothers,” Sheamus said. “I just saw him last week when I was staying in Florida. We stay in touch all the time. Legacy wise, I think he’s one of the greatest I’ve ever stepped in the ring with. I never had to worry about anything. He made me a better wrestler, better performer just by tagging with him.”
“To me, he’ll always be one of the greatest. I think no matter what he does or where he goes, he’ll be a massive success. He’s a huge asset to anybody who picks him up. I always believed the guy would be WWE champion – that’s never off the cards because people have left and come back, but I think that whoever snaps up Cesaro is going to have a major, major talent on their hands. And I think he’s got a lot left in him, as well.”
Sheamus also mentioned his recent visit to Cesaro’s home, where he set up a brand new gym and has been training “like a lunatic,” preparing to make his return to the ring.
“I saw him the other day, I was over at his house and he’s built a whole brand new gym, it’s amazing. He’s still lifting weights like a lunatic. He still trains like a lunatic. He’s as hungry now as he’s ever been. I’m just excited to see him back in the ring, mate, but that will be whenever he’s ready to get back in there – which I think is great, as well. Sometimes we need a little time away from the bubble to get our head back together, and then just refocus, go back in and kill it again. So, I’m not worried about him one bit in the slightest.”
Recently, The Celtic Warrior has teamed up with Ridge Holland on SmackDown. They have worked their way up at creating a formidable tag team. The duo is aiming to be included on WrestleMania 38’s card. It appeared that Sheamus, Holland, and Butch was going to have a match against the New Day, but Big E’s neck injury seemingly nixed that.
