Cesaro Wasn't Looking For Another Tag Team Partner When He Was Paired With Sheamus

Cesaro wasn't looking for another tag team, but ended up being in one anyway.

Speaking to Al Arabiya English, he recounted the moment that he found out he would be teaming with Sheamus going forward. As it seems with most of WWE's creative lately, Cesaro found out about his pairing the minute Mick Foley mentioned it.

“The moment I found out I was teaming with Sheamus was the moment the fans did" he recalled. "It was when Mick Foley announced it on Raw. I didn’t know much before that, and actually anything you saw on TV since then, and even before that with the best of seven series, was essentially art imitating life."

But Cesaro wasn't interested in teaming with someone else at the time -- he had been a part of other tag teams in the past. Fortuantely, he and Sheamus clicked, and now everything's gravy.

“I was lucky enough to have many different tag partners." he said. "I was partners with Kassius Ohno as the Kings of Wrestling [in the indies], and in WWE I was with Jack Swagger. I thought we were the best tag team to never win the WWE Tag Team Championship. Next, of course, my partnership with Tyson Kidd, which was tragically cut short after six months. I wasn’t looking to be in another tag team, and I know neither was Sheamus. Now we’re having the time of our lives.”

Cesaro and Sheamus paired up following a best of seven series that ended in a tie. They are once again Raw tag team champions after beating Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose early last month.
