Cesaro On Teaming With Sheamus, How He’s Helped Him, More

WWE Raw Tag Team Champion Cesaro recently appeared on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness (transcript courtesy of Wrestlinginc.com). Here are the highlights:

Teaming with Sheamus:

“It gave us a chance to show more personality and give both of us a chance to play off each other.” Cesaro explained, “while you’re out there by yourself, you don’t really have anybody to play off of, but if Sheamus is out there, I know that even if something gets messed up, or one of us gets lost, or I miss my cue, then, we can play it off no matter what.”

“If you take a step back and look at it, I’m definitely happy to be there, but, then again, I’m not happy to be there. And I think that’s what helps about teaming with Sheamus, anytime one of us is down, do you know what I mean, goes through something, the other one is there and we can talk. It’s like good cop/bad cop. If Sheamus is down, I pick him up and if I’m down, he picks me up. And that I think is a good thing. Cesaro elaborated, “sometimes, when you’re by yourself, it’s really easy to dig yourself into a hole and be unhappy. But I know when it comes down to it, when I walk through the curtain, I’m out there with Sheamus and I know we’re going to have a blast no matter what. And I think that really helps.”

How working with Sheamus has helped him:

“I feel like the team has definitely helped me out a lot in terms of what we talked about earlier, confidence, and going out there and talking. And I feel like that’s just a thing like being in the ring. It just needs practice and for people to get accustomed to how you talk. And I have a different way of talking because of my accent and my cadence or whatever you want and for some people, ‘oh, it’s sounds weird – he can’t talk’. I always felt like I’m pretty eloquent at talking, but people are maybe not used to it. But, thanks to Sheamus, we go out there and we talk and we cut promos and everything and it’s just that comfort level of letting people in and letting them see more of who you are and I think that will definitely help, benefit, like, my body of work.”
