Cesaro was recently interviewed by City Pages to promote WWE’s upcoming show in Minneapolis, Minnesota this Friday. He discussed a number of topics, including Tag Team wrestling, beach balls, his place in the company and more.
Below are some questions, along with the “Swiss Superstar’s” answers:
CP: You’re a record five-time WWE Raw Tag Team Champion, and before coming to WWE, you were renowned for your work in the indies as a tag team specialist. Why is it that you excel in tag team wrestling specifically?
Cesaro: I’m really good, and I bring the best out of every single person in the ring. Especially my tag team partners.
CP: How is the mentality different when you’re wrestling in a tag team versus in singles competition?
Cesaro: You have to depend on somebody the whole time as well. You can’t be selfish and just worry about yourself because there’s somebody else with you. Of course, it’s an added benefit when you have someone like Sheamus, who is a world-class Superstar, with you. That makes it easier. You just have to be on the same wavelength. Despite some initial difficulties, that’s what me and Sheamus are doing.
Here’s a clip of a beach ball being destroyed:

CP: Let’s talk about beach balls. Last year at SummerSlam, you very famously ran into the crowd to tear up a beach ball that was being passed around. What about the beach ball made you want to destroy it like that?
Cesaro: Excuse my language, but fudge beach balls. Seriously. That’s absolutely disrespectful. We were wrestling for the Tag Team Championships, and you want to play with a beach ball? Get the hell out of here. Go. Leave the arena, and don’t come back. I think every person that brings a beach ball into a WWE arena should get ejected for life.
Author’s note: At this point in the conversation, a WWE spokesperson interjected to clarify that Cesaro really did say “fudge.” After multiple listens, I have confirmed that, despite immediate skepticism, the Superstar did indeed keep it PG. Unfortunately.
CP: What would be your advice for any other wrestler who is in your situation where they feel like they’re not getting the credit or booking you deserve?
Cesaro: First of all, nothing happens overnight. Everyone thinks you become successful overnight or you get good overnight, but that does not happen. It’s always a long road. I came to the WWE after a long time on the independents, traveling and wrestling all over the world for 12 years. I’ve been in WWE for six years now. For some people, that success happens fast, but for some people, it doesn’t. It takes a while. You just have to be consistent and work hard. And you have to believe in yourself.
They also discuss Sheamus, Kassius Ohno and more.
