A few years ago "The Chairman Of The Board" Vince McMahon sounded off on how he truly felt about one of the WWE's most promising talents - Cesaro.
Back in 2014 McMahon made a special appearance on WWE Hall Of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin'd podcast, The Steve Austin Show, in a special WWE Network episode. The podcast streamed live on video on the WWE Network after an episode of Monday Night RAW. Stone Cold asked McMahon some hard hitting questions and got his true feelings on several topics.
One such topic Austin brought up was the work of Cesaro inside the ring, a Superstar Austin himself has been a fan of and actually offered some helpful constructive criticism himself. McMahon offered his thoughts on Cesaro's work in WWE and claimed that "The Swiss Superman" didn't connect with fans.
Cesaro recently appeared on an episode of the All Things Wrestling Radio show, and was asked about several professional wrestling topics. One such topic were the comments made about him by Vince McMahon.
The former RAW Tag Team Champion claimed that he did hear McMahon's comments about him on his car ride to the next city WWE was heading out to. Cesaro claimed that he used McMahon's words as motivation to better himself and actually accepted the boss' challenge in his office the next day (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"I was actually listening to it on the drive to the next city…I was not very happy about it to say the least because I couldn't disagree more," Cesaro said.
"The next day I walked into his office and said 'challenge accepted.' That's how I deal with things – head on…I'd like to say I've been doing pretty good so far."
It's undoubtable that Cesaro is one of the most talented in-ring professionals the WWE has on its roster today, but if he wants to be a successful singles star he's gonna have to prove that he has the charisma to do so.
