Antonio Cesaro spoke with The Phoenix New Times while promoting this Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. Here are some highlights from the interview.
Being on the indy scene a few years ago with Daniel Bryan and other current WWE stars, and now being in WWE: “I think it’s great and it just proves that if you work hard and if you get better and better and get the best at your craft as you can be [then] you will have success. You know, all those guys — Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, myself, and many others — have put a lot of hard work into what they do and made a lot of sacrifices. [They] still do. It does not come overnight.”
If he prefers being a heel: “See, I think the lines are very, very blurred because I don’t see myself as the villain. I think it’s America that vilifies me because I say what I say and think and America doesn’t like foreigners. When I go to Europe, or [when] I went to my home country of Switzerland, I was a big hero. And I’m still the same person. So I think its all in the view of the beholder… the eye of the beholder.”
