If you hear sirens, seek shelter, because Cesaro’s on his way.
A onetime European rugby star who was banned from league play due to excessive aggression, Cesaro applied his mercilessness in the ring, honing his skills not just in Europe but around the entire world. Upon landing in the United States, he developed a cult following exhibiting his vicious skills in tag team and singles competition alike.
This brutally innovative grappler is not all brawn, however. The cultured Cesaro speaks five languages, allowing him to adapt to his surroundings while traveling the globe en route to WWE. Upon his arrival to WWE in 2012, Cesaro immediately backed up his multilingual smack talk, winning the United States Title and eventually settling in as one half of Zeb Colter’s powerhouse “Real Americans” tag team alongside Jack Swagger.
Though it was under Colter that Cesaro made history by winning the first-ever Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 30, it was only after leaving Zeb behind that he truly came into his own. Since then, The Swiss Superman has grown in both strength and stature, using his inhuman stamina to take Superstars like John Cena to the limit while forging a near-unstoppable tag team with Tyson Kidd that landed the duo a WWE Tag Team Title reign less than three months after their first match together.
A hybrid brawler who improves and amazes every single time he steps into the ring, there’s still no telling how far The King of Swing will go. Better just to watch and be amazed.
