Swissblade (Antonio Cesaro)

Dazzling feats of strength are becoming a trend when former United States Champion Antonio Cesaro steps into the ring. Seemingly every week, The Real Americans' adopted patriot pushes the limits of his own physical prowess and shows the WWE Universe exactly why he's earned the right to talk the talk.

Case in point: the Nov. 26, 2012, edition of Raw, when Cesaro lifted the 267-pound Sheamus onto his shoulders with remarkable ease, then propelled him down into the mat with a hard thump. The maneuver, which we had yet to see Cesaro perform in WWE, elicited "oohs" and "ahhs" from the crowd and generated instant buzz on Twitter.

"You always aim to surprise your opponents, and if I suddenly bust out a move they are not anticipating, it makes it even more effective," Cesaro told WWE.com of the move he now is calling the Swissblade. "I beat my opponents fair and square every night with the Neutralizer, but if I need something special, something a little extra, I'll bust out other moves."

The former U.S. Champion is tweaking his arsenal on a weekly basis, so it might only be a matter of time before this maneuver crops up again. But if that doesn't concern Superstars who have to face Cesaro in the future, this warning from him should:

"I have many, many more in my back pocket."
