Cesaro was certainly one of the most gifted WWE Superstars in the company, with many considering him very underrated. However, WWE never saw much potential in him in the end. He is also thankful for never winning a World Title in WWE.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Cesaro talked about his time in WWE. Cesaro made it clear that he is thankful for never winning a World Title in the company.
“If I would have won the title, right, that would have been the end of it kind of, you know what I mean? It would have been like, ‘Hey, he won the title, he’s good now, that’s it,’ and then you have to kind of find what’s next. Everybody’s always looking for that destination, but it is the journey, right? It is the middle of it that’s so awesome, that’s so important. That’s where you make all your friends, that’s where you make all your memories, and people forget that.”
Yes, it would have been awesome and I think I would have made a great champion. But if I look back, I had some amazing moments that you couldn’t fabricate … I won the first-ever Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal that nobody will ever be able to take away from me, so if it was an uphill battle, I’m very thankful for it, and I’m very glad so many people came on that journey with me … They remember despite me never being a champion, and I think that’s a big accomplishment, as well.”
Claudio Castagnoli is the current ROH World Champion and is truly happy working in AEW now. We’ll have to see how he will be booked as the champion in the coming weeks.
