Cesaro recently spoke with Aaron Oster for the Baltimore Sun while promoting tonight’s WWE RAW TV taping; you can read a few highlights below:

Cesaro on his reaction to Kurt Angle’s WWE in-ring return: 

Selfishly, I was very happy about it. I was a big fan of Kurt Angle when I was growing up. Actually, his book is a big part of the reason that I work out so hard. I thought I was working out pretty hard myself when I was younger, and then I read his book and realized that I needed to step it up, at least a little bit. I knew I may not be able to match his output, but I was going to try my hardest. He had a big influence on me and it was pretty awesome to be in the ring with him in his WWE return.

Cesaro reveals his reaction to having his teeth jammed into his gums at WWE No Mercy: 

Well, the first thing that went through my head was, “Ow, that really hurt.” There was a lot of blood. Then, the doctor came over and checked on me. I said that I was all right. He was ready to look for the teeth around the ring, but I had to tell him that no, they were in there, just up higher. That was not a pleasant experience.

Cesaro on his success with Sheamus: 

I’ve been enjoying this run immensely. It’s been so much fun. It’s been over a year now that I’ve been involved in the storyline with Sheamus. It’s great because the fans got to see us going from hating each other in the best of seven, which was truly a best-of-nine, it went from that to not just being a tag team, but being the well-oiled tag team that we are now. You go through the matches, from the matches with New Day to The Club, to the WrestleMania match with The Club, Enzo and Cass, and the Hardys, to the matches with the Hardys, and a cage match, to The Shield. All of those matches were show-stealers. We poured our heart into each and every one. It’s been a testament to how much fun we’re having as a team. It sounds like a cliche, but we truly live by our slogan, “We don’t set the bar, we are the bar.”

Cesaro comments on Ford using their “We Are The Bar” slogan for the F-150 truck

We said it first! We said it first! There must be a WWE fan at Ford. That person needs to get in touch with WWE to get us in those commercials! We’ve been saying that for over six months, and now they’re using that for the F-150? Maybe we need to look into that with a copyright lawyer. It is pretty cool, though, that wrestling is becoming more and more mainstream, and stuff like that happens. This could be a coincidence, but I’d like to think that someone at Ford saw me and Sheamus and thought, “Those are two cool guys with a cool slogan.”
