For the majority of the WWE roster, there will be a part of their work that is criticised.

WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens doesn't look the part, John Cena has a limited move-set, and Roman Reigns, well he is just Roman Reigns.

However, for Swiss Superman Cesaro, his growing problem is the bad reputation he carries around regarding his mic skills.

It's well known that to make it in the WWE, you have to connect with the audience and you have to be able to cut brilliant promos.

Look at some of the biggest stars in the company, and the majority of them are all killer on the microphone. Excluding Brock Lesnar of course, but he has Paul Heyman that does his talking for him.

Cesaro has this worrying reputation that he cannot cut a good promo and that he cannot officially connect with the audience and the WWE Universe.

Numerous officials in the WWE have spoken about Cesaro and said he's missing that connection, with Vince McMahon famously revealing on Stone Cold Steve Austin's podcast what the Swiss Superman is missing.

Pound for pound, Cesaro is one of the strongest superstars on the roster, and in the ring, his ability can never be questioned. Week after week he puts on great matches, but it's the promo work that is letting him down.

However, he has recently hit back at those critics and has stated if given the chance, he will be able to cut good promos.

During a media call promoting WWE's upcoming tour of the UK, Cesaro responded to his promo critics and insisted that if given the chance, people would be surprised at his ability on the mic.

He said: “I actually can talk if you let me. That’s always funny, because people always say that I can’t, but the thing is, you haven’t seen me on the mic a lot.

"I don’t really get that many chances. And if I do, it’s usually pretty good. Certain people get maybe a reputation, and people keep repeating it, and that just becomes their stigma.

"I’m not saying I’m ‘Mr. Microphone’ over here, but I can certainly hold my own.

"I’ve been fortunate enough to get the chance to prove it lately, and I’m looking forward to getting to prove it some more going forward. The guys who talk are a select few, and I’m working my way to get there.”
