Cesaro has become the premier tag team wrestler in WWE, finding success with multiple partners including Tyson Kidd, Jake Hager, Sheamus, and now Shinsuke Nakamura. Cesaro is a six-time WWE Raw/SmackDown Tag Team Champion with three different partners, currently holding the SmackDown Tag Titles with Nakamura.
Speaking to Sport1, Cesaro discussed his success in teams.
"I would call the partnership great," Cesaro said when asked about his partnership with Nakamura. "We both had something to prove and felt overlooked. Now we are champions, so very successful. When I met Sheamus, we thought we had something to prove. But while I was fighting him with Sheamus ahead of time, I've been with Shinsuke for most of the year. For example, we helped Sami Zayn to win the Intercontinental Championship."
When asked about a singles run, Cesaro said, "I would like that too. But it's not like that at the moment, so I'm trying to make the best of every opportunity and situation. I compliment the strengths of my tag team partners very well. Maybe that proves that I'm a very good team player [laughs]. Tag team wrestling is a challenge in itself. I enjoy that."
Cesaro did say that he still believes he has World Title potential.
At 39 years old and having spent two decades in the ring, Cesaro is still going strong in WWE, with no plans while he's in his current form.
"I want to get better every day, that's how I handle my career. If I can't do it anymore, it's time to stop. A wise man named John Cena once told me that you are only as good as you were in your last match. I want my last match to be great. When I see that this is no longer possible, you have to stop. I don't know when that is," he said.
Cesaro can currently be found on WWE SmackDown in the Champions Lounge with Nakamura.
