WWE Superstar Cesaro was recently the guest on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette. During the show Cesaro addressed Vince McMahon’s comments from a few years ago where he said he didn’t see Cesaro as a big draw.
“Well, that’s the thing. People are like, ‘Oh, you had momentum before, and then it flounders.’ It gets harder and harder to build momentum. But I also think I’ve been good at building momentum out of nowhere, like on Talking Smack. I always have to prove to somebody – even if it’s me – that I can do it. Like you said, the thing with Vince on the podcast, it’s like, yeah, of course, I’m still here. It’s been like seven years, and I’m still here. And I’m doing really well. That just speaks for itself. Again, that’s one of those where I feel like actions speak louder than words because there are a lot of people that come out the next day and go public or on Twitter and be like, ‘Well, I am this. I am that.’”
“That Talking Smack promo that I did would not have worked five years ago. It worked now because people are seeing my body of work. And they know what I say is not only what I believe in but also what I live by and what I do every day. Like, I’m not the one that says, ‘I work really hard. I train every day. I do this, and I do that.’ No, they’ve seen me on TV and off TV for the last 8-9 years doing it all of the time, every time. I do believe actions speak louder than words. And if you actually say something, it just backs it up. I was always under the impression that I don’t want to be the one that’s cheerleading for myself. That’s just lame. I have a lot of people watching who have followed my career and believe [in me]. And I need to be there for them.”
