Roman Reigns said ‘this is DB style,’ referencing Daniel Bryan, during his WrestleMania Backlash match against Cesaro for the WWE Universal Title. WrestleMania Backlash ‘Botches’ Braun Strowman Entrance.
Cesaro said before WrestleMania Backlash in a DAZN interview why his pairing with Paul Heyman, Reigns’ Special Counsel, did not work.
“I’ll say this much. I learned a whole lot from Paul, and I still do. But I agree 100 percent with Paul’s assessment because that’s 100 percent right,” he confirmed. “Paul used that opportunity to talk about Brock Lesnar and, I was second fiddle at that point. He even said that in the Talking Smack interview that he did. He said that he knows that alliance was more beneficial to him than it was for me.”
“But you know what, despite that, I’m here today, challenging Roman Reigns on Sunday,” Cesaro continued. “I’m here despite not being picked, not being ‘The Guy’ chosen by powers that be. I’m still here because of what I bring to the table. I feel that speaks for itself.”
He later said about potentially winning the Universal Title, “It will mean the world to me. I feel I represent so many people. I’m a kid from Switzerland that wanted to be a WWE superstar. That’s unheard of. My friends were like, ‘Are you are you crazy’? To reach that mountain top to win that Universal championship, it will just mean so much to me and make all the pain and sacrifice worth it.”:
Hmmm… Interesting that Roman is talking to Daniel Bryan during this match. #WMBacklash
