Cesaro undoubtedly has a special Valentine this weekend. It’s pro wrestling.
The Swiss Superman came fresh off a tag team win with Daniel Bryan last night on SmackDown and qualifying himself for the upcoming Elimination Chamber for the WWE Universal Title. High quality promos has become standard on the Talking Smack post-show and Cesaro added one to the fold as he delivered an impassioned speech to Paul Heyman, Kayla Braxton and the fans at home. His topic of choice? Belief in one self.
“I can’t remember the last time I had a chance at the Universal Title or any championship in WWE and I’m still going because I believe that hard work pays off. And I believe because every single person out there that believes in me and has believed in me since I came to the United States, since I came to WWE because guess what? I did not come to WWE when I came to the United States, oh no. I worked my way up the hard way. I worked every single day to get here. I worked every single day to be here. You know what? I love it. I love every single moment of it because that’s who I am and that’s what I believe in.”
Cesaro then turns to the audience at home Dusty Rhodes “Crockett Promotions October 1985” style.
“So to every single person out there who believes what they’re doing is right. Nobody what anybody else said, no matter what everybody believes, not matter what anybody wants to tell them, they feel they’re right. They’re doing it the right way, with the right integrity, with the right motives in mind. That matters. Your word matters. Your action matters. Every single thing that you do matters. No matter what everyone else says about you, no matter what everyone feels about you. What you feel in here and what you believe in, that’s what matters. And that’s why you need to believe in yourself and that’s why you’re going to be successful and that’s why I am going to be Universal Champion given the chance. And you know that Paul. And I know that, Kayla knows that, you know that, you know that, Nikki knows it, Warren knows it, Bryan knows it and every single person at home, sitting in the, as we call it, Cesaro Section, knows it and has ever knows it. I appreciate you, I appreciate what you believe in and that’s why I fight every single day and I love it. Love, Paul, cause I love wrestling. Love will always succeed.”
