Sheamus Says Cesaro Is As Hungry As He’s Ever Been Following WWE Departure

Sheamus Says Cesaro Is As Hungry As He’s Ever Been Following WWE Departure WWE

Sheamus has opened up about Cesaro’s shock WWE departure, providing an update on the popular star.

Cesaro left WWE last month after his contract expired, with the two sides unable to come to terms on a new deal.

In an interview with, Sheamus discussed his bond with the Swiss Superman, noting that they stay in touch all the time.

Noting that Cesaro is as hungry as he’s ever been, Sheamus said:

“Honestly, when we started, Cesaro was like an acquaintance. When we started The Bar, we became brothers. I just saw him last week when I was staying in Florida. We stay in touch all the time. Legacy wise, I think he’s one of the greatest I’ve ever stepped in the ring with. I never had to worry about anything. He made me a better wrestler, better performer just by tagging with him.

“To me, he’ll always be one of the greatest. I think no matter what he does or where he goes, he’ll be a massive success. He’s a huge asset to anybody who picks him up. I always believed the guy would be WWE champion – that’s never off the cards because people have left and come back, but I think that whoever snaps up Cesaro is going to have a major, major talent on their hands. And I think he’s got a lot left in him, as well.

“I saw him the other day, I was over at his house and he’s built a whole brand new gym, it’s amazing. He’s still lifting weights like a lunatic. He still trains like a lunatic. He’s as hungry now as he’s ever been.

“I’m just excited to see him back in the ring, mate, but that will be whenever he’s ready to get back in there – which I think is great, as well. Sometimes we need a little time away from the bubble to get our head back together, and then just refocus, go back in and kill it again. So, I’m not worried about him one bit in the slightest.”

On Friday’s episode of SmackDown, Sheamus and Ridge Holland (re)introduced Pete Dunne to the main roster, as ‘Butch’. The original plans for Sheamus, Holland and Butch at WrestleMania 38 will now have to be changed, which you can read more about right here.
