Cesaro Discusses Retirement Plans
Unless your name is Terry Funk, retirement generally means something in professional wrestling. It’s not an easy industry to have a long career in, as bumps and bruises start to pile up. Thankfully, most men know when enough is enough, including Cesaro.
One of the best wrestlers in the world today, Cesaro has become a six-time tag team champion within WWE. This was done across three different partners as well, and he is currently in that sixth reign with Shinsuke Nakamura. His level of performance has never slipped, still able to go out and put on a classic match at a moments notice.
Cesaro Got Some Excellent Advice From John Cena
It’s great for us fans that he’s never slipped, as that is when he knows it could be time to hang his boots up. While speaking with Sports1, Cesaro would recall some excellent advice he got from John Cena.
“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,”
This is something that many wish men like The Undertaker, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels did. Both Flair & Michaels would have excellent retirement matches, but return to the ring afterwards to less than favourable reviews. Meanwhile, Undertaker did get to go out with a grand performance, but without it being cinematic, it could have told another story.
In Regards To A Singles Run
Considering Cesaro is still regarded as one of the best wrestlers in the world, we don’t have to worry too much about him retiring yet, despite his two decades of in-ring experience. He’s likely to win some more tag team championships, and could even have that long awaited singles push.
When asked about a potential singles run from the same interview, he would say the following.
“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. Tag team wrestling is a challenge in itself. I enjoy that.”
