Cesaro left WWE when his contract expired in February. Many fans expected to see him right away, since he was not subject to a non-compete clause. Thus far, the Swiss Superman has yet to make any wrestling appearances.
Shortly after leaving WWE, Cesaro rebranded himself as Claudio CSRO. He has teased some big news on social media. Thus far, nothing concrete has been announced.
Several promoters have tried to reach out to Cesaro for bookings, according to Fightful Select. Some said their calls were never returned. Others noted that his asking price is way too steep.
“Many promoters that we’ve spoken to say that Cesaro’s was priced out of some potential bookings, and they’d not be able to land him until the asks came back down to earth. Cesaro has been repped by an agent who also manages several other wrestlers. However, we’re told that some wrestlers had been intentionally utilizing a high asking price because they’re content staying home until the right deal or offer comes along after being on the road for so long. We haven’t heard if that’s specifically the case with him.”
The WWE locker room was shocked that the company let Cesaro walk. It was reported that they did want to retain him, but they couldn’t reach an agreement. Cesaro and his team were said to have been playing serious hardball during those negotiations.
Eventually, Cesaro will make his intentions known. Right now, fans will have to deal with his recent tease. Time will tell when and where we will see Cesaro next.
