Cesaro Says He Can Talk, Jericho On Lesnar Incident, Devon Update

Cesaro mic work

Cesaro Wants More Opportunities

In a recent press conference for the upcoming WWE UK Tour, Cesaro responded to a question that he isn’t good at promos. He told the media he can talk, but needs more opportunities to do so:

“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.”

Why Y2J Confronted Lesnar

In a recent appearance on You’re Welcome With Chael Sonnen Chris Jericho explained why he confronted Brock Lesnar after his match with Randy Orton at Summerslam:

“Well, anytime something like that happens, there’s always a lot of rumors and a lot of stories being told and that sort of thing. But, I mean, not to get into specifics, between me and Brock, but we did have a little bit of a brouhaha, shall we say. And I think that happens when you get guys that are in a sport such as ours. It’s half entertainment and half real and half not. And I think you get he had just come out of the ring. I had just come out of the ring an hour before, so whatever. And I just thought the finish of that match was very brutal and very violent and I just didn’t know if Randy was okay. And I was just checking on my friend. We have always been pretty close. And I said something. He said something. The next thing you know, we’re nose to nose, kind of yelling at each other.

“It diffused pretty quickly, but, I mean, listen, let’s make no bones about this. Brock is a trained fighter and he’s a beast, but I’m not the type of person to back down from anybody, to my detriment or harmful to my existence even. But hotheads fire off, we were in each other’s face, and that happens sometimes. I guess I kind of have a reputation for it too. I’ve never backed down. And I think in the case sometimes of guys his size, they think that most people will wilt and most people do, but that’s not me. That’s not my background. That’s not what I came up from, coming up from Winnipeg [Manitoba], and my dad’s lineage of being in the NHL, and it’s just not what I do, so, like I said, I’m glad he didn’t eat me. Basically, there was a face to face altercation. And, like I said, I’ll leave the rest between the two of us.”

“Listen, whatever the finish is is not my business. Whatever they’re doing or whatever happens. Listen, man, that’s the way it is. It’s not my business. It’s not my responsibility or my call. But, when I see a friend of mine laying in a pool of his own blood, whether it’s a work or not, that’s real blood. That’s a real concussion that he suffered. So I want to go check to see if he’s okay because we’ve had a 15-year history and we’ve gotten into fights ourselves. That’s one of the guys I’ve been in the trenches with and will continue to be in the trenches with till the day one of us stops doing this. But I don’t think there’s ever anything wrong with checking on your friend whether it’s a work or not. If that makes me a mark, well, I guess I’m a mark for making sure my friends are okay.”
