Cesaro recently participated in an international media call (transcribed by ESPN) to promote the WWE UK tour in November. During the interview, Cesaro was asked about his Best of Seven Series with Sheamus, which ends this Sunday at the Clash of Champions pay-per-view event. Cesaro stated that he loves this program because it reminds him of the old days when it was just about wrestling and not sports entertainment.

"I do love this kind of program. It's not often we get the chance in WWE to do something like that. To me, it's the closest to the old days when it was all about the wrestling, all about me against Sheamus in the ring without anything on the outside. It has this real sports feel. I kind of had my back against the wall, you know, it's best-of-seven. I do definitely love it. Well, I feel, from a company standpoint, like there's a lot of trust that goes into this. Because to have seven matches, or at least a best-of-seven ... there's a lot of confidence bestowed on both of us. People know we can go. People know we hit hard. We bring a lot of realism to our matches.I think over my career, if you look at it in WWE, Sheamus has always been one of my biggest adversaries," Cesaro said, "and one of the ones I would like to say I had some very memorable bouts with. It's definitely fun to be in the ring with him."

Cesaro made it clear that his number one goal is to be WWE Champion, but he has yet to win the title. Now that he is back to 100 percent, he still has that goal in mind.

"I wanted to be [world] champion by now, and I haven't achieved that. The journey ahead seems still so long, but I'm happy I came back 100 percent," he continued. "I didn't come back 70 percent or something. I'm getting better every day. I'm just enjoying myself. Trying to approach it a little bit different. Just having more fun, especially in the ring, and letting the fans have fun with me together, from my new entrance to the whole thing."
