Cesaro was certainly one of the most talented Superstars in the WWE and for many fans, he was severely underrated. Cesaro never reached the main event level scene in WWE and fans were unhappy about that fact. He also admitted his goal in AEW could destroy him.
The Swiss Superman eventually left WWE and made his long-anticipated AEW debut at the Forbidden Door pay-per-view event. Since then, he has become a mainstay of AEW television.
While speaking to Sports Illustrated, Claudio stated that his main purpose in going to AEW was to become a world champion. He also admitted that his goal could destroy him, as it has with others in the past.
“This is my pursuit, the main event and the world heavyweight championship, I’ve seen that pursuit destroy people. Those sacrifices ate them up, always seeking one more run. I’ve never sacrificed my authenticity or integrity. My destiny is my journey. I want to take fans on that ride, and hopefully win the world title along the way.”
The former Cesaro also shocked WWE talent by signing with AEW. He will also square off against Ring of Honor Champion Jonathan Gresham for the title at ROH’s Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on July 23rd. We’ll have to see who will come out on top in the match.
