Once enemies, The Bar are now four-time WWE Tag Team Champions
The current RAW Tag-Team Champions Sheamus & Cesaro, recently spoke with The Sun. During the interview, The Bar discussed their growth as a tag-team, how they've grown since initially being paired together and the competitive nature that is still between them. Sheamus & Cesaro won the tag-titles for a fourth time at the 2018 'Royal Rumble' PPV, by defeating the team of Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan.
A former WWE Champion, Sheamus had high praise for his partner, saying that it's helped him relax -- something uncharacteristic for him.
“I feel like since tagging with Cesaro, I’ve let my guard down," said Sheamus. "When I look back at my career, I was always trying to be this particular ‘Celtic Warrior’ character. Even when I was doing promos, I was thinking: ‘How would Sheamus do this and say that. I love what I do. I’m very professional, I always want to do the best job that I can, but now I don’t care as much about what other people think; whether they like it or they don’t. Tagging with Cesaro, I’ve just had fun. I don’t think about promos, I don’t think about backstage scenes, I just go out there and be me.”
Cesaro himself reminisced on the pairing, which was birthed from the two competitors being at odds for months on WWE television.
“From the moment Mick Foley made us a team until now, what you saw on TV is exactly what happened," said Cesaro. "We grew together as a team and the chemistry just evolved. Now we’re best friends, we’re like brothers. The fun part is that it happened in front of the fans. It was 14-month process, it doesn't happen like that much anymore. I think the team is successful because what you see is what you get. This is just us."
The team has met great success, capturing the aforementioned four tag team championships. In addition, the two have worked WrestleMania title matches, programs with the Shield and more. Cesaro credits their trust in one another
"We take care of each other. I took care of Sheamus when he had a hole in his head and he took care of me when I had no teeth. We’re extremely competitive in everything we do: wrestling, working out, whatever. We just bring out the best in each other. If one of us have a bad day, the other lifts him up. If one of us falls, the other picks him up. That’s how we do it. It’s just been the best," said Cesaro.
Most recently, the duo successfully defended their championships on WWE Raw over Titus Worldwide. You can see the full interview at this link.
