There are less than two weeks left for WWE to return to Spain. Once again we will live the best matches in the world of professional live fight on May 6 in Valencia and 7 in A Coruña. Expect a spectacular weekend, with great moments. Therefore, one of the best European competitors who have ever graced the ring, Cesaro, took a minute with WWE.com.

WWE.COM: Switzerland is a country without a great fighting tradition, so I imagine that the beginnings were difficult. Why do I choose a Swiss guy to engage in professional struggle?

CESARO: I think you are absolutely right, certainly Spain and Switzerland, two countries with good relationship, have the same problem. I saw a lot of fighting when I was a kid and I fell in love at that stage when some people dream of being astronauts or things like that, and I wanted to be a professional fighter. Already growing up and pursuing my dreams, I had the opportunity to start training at age 19 and I was fortunate to be granted American residency, so I was able to fulfill my dream and become the first Swiss Superstar of WWE.

WWE.COM: The Hardy Boyz returned in WrestleMania. What a momentazo! Do not you think?

CESARO: Yes, go ahead for them! But not for me and Sheamus. They took action and truncated our plans. It was certainly a moment of enjoyment for the fans, they were very excited and they became very noisy. Notice that when I was young I saw the Hardy Boyz and enjoyed them a lot, I loved to see them fly.

WWE.COM: Sheamus and you will face them in WWE Payback for the Raw Couples Championship. What do you think of that and how has the landscape changed in the team division after his return at WrestleMania?

CESARO: I think the pair split changed when Sheamus and I joined, as we are two of WWE’s best competitors and surely the best team. The Hardy Boyz may have the “nostalgia factor” in their favor and they are certainly a great team, but in Payback we are going to win again the championships, because I want to return to Europe, I want to return home being world champion.

WWE.COM: You have been very successful both as an individual competitor and in pairs, but how do you feel more comfortable?

CESARO: Both. I think the key to being a great WWE Superstar, to be a great fighter is that you have to be the best around. Whether in singles or in pairs you have to adapt and hit all the challenges and I think I’m doing pretty well.

WWE.COM: After the Shakes of Superstars, who would you like to face?

CESARO: There are a lot of guys who changed teams, but I would have liked some more movement in the division in pairs. I was hoping that The Uses or American Alpha would change to Raw, but I do with those who came like The Miz, Dean Ambrose … people I’ve faced before and I would not mind facing them again, but Either way I am very happy that Sheamus and I are on this side instead of the other.

WWE.COM: If you could choose someone from SmackDown LIVE, who would you choose?

CESARO: That’s a very good question. There are lots of great SmackDown competitors, Luke Harper has been on the lag lately; Randy Orton, with whom I have been in the ring a couple of times, but who is now the current champion and I always have my eyes on the championship; If we talk about teams, American Alpha, Uses, Sexy Cops [Breezango] … there are many and Sheamus and I will never say “no” to any challenge, so we will continue to step forward and SmackDown is full of many challenges.

WWE.COM: You travel a lot with Sheamus and spend a lot of time with him. What is the funniest story that has happened to you?

CESARO: Well, I have to admit that Sheamus may be a little on the road, but he is a tremendous competitor, his work ethic is bullet-proof, he works very hard and that motivates me. We motivate each other, if I am tired encourages me and vice versa. We have many funny stories, he likes to do “chicken”, I have a great time with him.

WWE.COM: From the moment you faced Sheamus seven times to the moment you joined forces with him, what changed? How would you explain it to a casual aficionado?

CESARO: If you fight many times against someone you end up having respect. Sheamus put all the meat on the grill, just like me, and we began to respect each other as athletes. We looked at each other and we said many things to the face, believe me, many things, but we respect what the other does in the ring and how good it is.

WWE.COM: What do you think about the new talents that have come up from NXT like The Revival on Raw or Shinsuke Nakamura?

CESARO: It’s good to always have new people and the people coming from NXT come stomping. For me, what they have to do is keep that step steady and steady, with high eyes, because now they have many eyes on them and I want to see if they are able to do it.

WWE.COM: How do you feel during the tours around Europe, especially when you are in your native country?

CESARO: It’s always special for me. Whenever we do tour around Europe we had a great time. To my honestly, I am delighted to go to my native country, specifically Zurich, but I also tell you that in any country we visit on European tours is like my home. The public is always very involved and has a great time even if we go a couple of times a year. Besides, they love to see me and make me very happy. But I also tell you that I am jealous of Smackdown because they are going to visit Spain again and I have never been in your country with WWE.

WWE.COM: SmackDown will be the tour that is in Spain, but you have been in our country many years ago in Pinto with Kassius Ohno …

CESARO: When I was young and handsome …
