Cesaro spoke with Planeta Wrestling and NEOX TV Spain while doing promotional work for WWE this week. The full interview can be found at this link. They sent us these translated highlights, which have been edited for some clarity:
What do you think of the Cesaro Section?
I think it’s awesome, I’m very happy and very grateful because it is something that the fans started, and I feel I am part of it and we are in this together.
Who is your favorite to win the Royal Rumble this Sunday and who do you think will steal the show at Wrestlemania 32?
The Royal Rumble is very difficult, because obviously there are 30 people, and there are many superstars in it. … I will say that whoever wins it will be a surprise. I do not think it’s going to be anyone to think that is a favorite, it will be a surprise. And who is going to steal the show at WrestleMania? Well, I do not know, it’s the beauty of WrestleMania, you have to wait and see who is fighting, who is going to give everything.
How is your recovery from shoulder surgery going and when do you plan to return?
My recovery is going really well, so I hope to be back soon, but I do not know when exactly, I have to wait for the doctor.
How do you see the Tag Team division now that you’re not in it?
I see a quite strong division, the best team now is probably The New Day. I think there is much fun to see, but obviously there are a lot of great teams out there… The Usos, The Ascension.
Would you like to return to action paired with Tyson Kidd again?
Yes, definitely, Tyson Kidd is like a brother to me.
What NXT superstar do you think should be promoted to the main roster and why?
That’s a really difficult question. I do not think I can pick one, because it always depends on how they are brought to the main roster. Some think it will be a great success, and do not know why they are not; and others you think they are going to be and they are. So I think the timing is the key, and then all you have to ask yourself is if that person will be able to survive in WWE.
Who would your dream match be against and why?
My dream would be fighting against whoever the WWE World Heavyweight Champion was at WrestleMania.
Would you like to return to be managed by Paul Heyman?
Well, let’s leave that aside. Paul Heyman has one thing on his mind and it’s Brock Lesnar, and I’m not willing to be the number 2, I’m number 1. So no, definitely not.
