At WWE WrestleMania Backlash, Cesaro finally got a crack at the Universal Championship.
Cesaro battled Reigns in a bout that went over 27 minutes and ended with the referee stopping the bout as Reigns choked out the "Swiss Superman." Despite the losing effort, Cesaro believes he made Reigns uncomfortable in the bout and is ready for his rematch.
"I took Roman to the limit and I don’t think he liked it, so let’s do it again," Cesaro told Louis Dangoor of GiveMeSport. "To me what it comes down to at the end of the day is what happens after the bell rings. Even when I’ve wrestled Roman Reigns in the past, I was able to take him to the limit, and maybe to a place where he doesn't like to be because he’s not usually there. He’s not usually pushed that way, I like to think, and that’s exactly what happened when the bell rang. Whatever his attitude is, it changes. He does what he does, he does what he thinks he has to do. My attitude changed from when I wrestled him before to now. I feel like we all matured, we all changed, we all developed, we all progressed. But at the end of the day, it’s about what happens when that bell rings. To me, that’s what’s important. Like you said [he had] a year great, but so did I, so let’s see what happens."
Cesaro is once again locked into a feud with Seth Rollins, who he's been battling since prior to WrestleMania.
