– Antonio Cesaro touted being successful in the ring during an interview with Dailybulletin.com.
“I don’t think there’s any American who can beat me. I’m the greatest United States Champion in history,” Cesaro said.
Also in the interview, Cesaro mentions he doesn’t fear any other WWE Superstar.
“I have respect for the other superstars … but I wouldn’t say I fear anybody. Fear is what holds you back. Right now, my focus and goal is on the United States Championship, to defend (it) well, and to prove my point that nobody can beat me. The Royal Rumble is coming, and I have my eye on that as well.”
