An era ended on last night’s SmackDown (30/4/21). Daniel Bryan got banned from the blue brand as he lost the Career vs Title match against Roman Reigns. After the match, Reigns attacked Bryan, and Cesaro came to the latter’s rescue.

However, that was not helpful. Roman’s cousin Jey Uso subdued the ‘Swiss Cyborg.’ He was forced to watch Reigns deliver chair shots to Daniel Bryan. Following the assault, Reigns continued taunting a helpless Cesaro as SmackDown went off the air.

Following the event, Cesaro expressed his thoughts on Bryan’s exile. He also warned Roman Reigns about the things he has done.

“Not a good night. Bryan did more for me than people will ever know,” Cesaro wrote on Instagram.

“I’m not looking forward to walking into the locker room next week and him not being there… I am looking forward to getting my hands on Roman. Und das ist keine Drohung, das ist ein Versprechen.”

 

The last part of his statement is in German. It roughly translates toAnd that’s not a threat, it’s a promise.” After Cesaro is done with Seth Rollins next week, he is definitely going after theTribal Chief.

Cesaro is gaining momentum after a decade in WWE

Despite being one of the most technical wrestlers in the promotion, WWE has largely ignored Cesaro. In fact, at this year’s WrestleMania, Cesaro had his first singles match in the event.

For me, I learn every day – and here’s the other thing too, I fail every day as well. Everything I do I’m like, “Oh man, I could’ve done that better,” but I did it to the best of my ability,’ he told Metro following his win against Rollins at WM 37.

‘Any new chance I get, to do those promo segments or be put in different spots or show a different side–I truly enjoy and try to make the best of it. And then I learn and I’ll try to get better, and I think that’s very important. Don’t be afraid to fail.’

Cesaro is a threatening opponent for Reigns, as he does not fear the ways of The Tribal Chief. His strength and technicality make him one of the best on the current roster. Additionally, Cesaro is not only fighting for himself but also for Bryan.
