WWE Superstar Cesaro appeared on this week’s episode of The New Day: Feel The Power. The podcast this week was billed as ‘Cesaro Appreciation Day,’ as the Swiss Superman/Cyborg is constantly praised by Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods on the show. One of the topics discussed was Cesaro’s unbelievable strength and athleticism; with Kofi Kingston directly comparing him to the ‘Beast’ Brock Lesnar.
Kofi Kingston on Cesaro
“Anytime I see that we have a match scheduled? I know that it’s gonna be something completely different than anything that we’re gonna see on the card” Kingston began. “Or anything that we’ve done in the past you know? We wrestle a lot of matches man, and not that it gets hard to look forward to wrestling; but I’ll say when I do see your name across the marquee on the card or whatever? It’s always a pleasure.”
Kingston would elaborate further, saying “it’s impressive to be able to do that [strength] stuff to someone like Big E because he IS so big. But me myself? Like, I have never been manhandled and felt like I could not do anything. It’s only you and Brock Lesnar [who could do that]. I remember there’s a couple of moves so you do like that Suplex; where you stand on the outside on the second rope and suplex me from the outside. I remember the first time we went to go do that and I literally had no choice. Like you hooked me and I’m like, ‘Okay, here we go, I guess we’re going, oh my god!?’ I literally had no control whether I was going or not. Like I literally had no choice (laughs).
Kofi would finish by praising just how much of a professional Cesaro is and how much he can rely on him in-ring. “There’s been a lot of moves like that to the point where it’s like, if you say, ‘oh, I’ll just catch you and I’ll do this’ that I’m like, ‘Okay, I know you will.’ There’s no other opponent that I’ve had more confidence in the ring with. Knowing that everything is going to be executed to perfection.”
