Cesaro Weighs In On Cain Velasquez’s WWE Debut, Talks Possible Match With Him


During a recent interview with The Sun, Cesaro commented on Cain Velasquez’s match against Brock Lesnar at the WWE Crown Jewel event, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Velasquez’s loss to Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel: “Cain came in and wasn’t that successful. I don’t know what he’s doing now, but I’m sat here talking to you. It’s a marathon—that’s how I look at it and what I tell myself. Of course, I wish I’d had those opportunities, but when the opportunity comes for me I’ll be ready. And I’ll do better than Cain Velasquez did.”

On Velasquez learning the ropes: “To be fair, that was just something like his third match, and he was very impressive with the other two. WWE is such a strong learning curve. Even with NXT, which is maybe more like the independents, that’s still a learning curve to adjust to this style. Given time, if I step in the ring with Cain I think that we could really tear it up.”

On his own loss at Crown Jewel to Monsoor: “It’s always special when you wrestle somebody in their hometown, but to wrestle somebody in their own country is a whole other level. Especially in that environment in a big stadium with a crowd that are maybe fairly new to wrestling. It’s a different atmosphere and we were in there, but there was a ‘You can do it’ chant and it was the coolest thing ever. I don’t know if I’ve heard that one before but I just thought that was really cool. People were sat there enjoying what they could see and that’s why we do what we do.”
