    ugh, i hate how wwe adds matches to ppv that arent advertised. nobody wants to see santino or khali face the real amercins even though i said before that cesaro should be on ppv more i still donr wanna see this match. cesaro should be in the main event not in a tag match, those guys dont derserve to be in the same ring as him, this news made me cry, literally, my mom had to come down 2 the basement to wipe my tears for me. this ppv sucks. even though i think it sucks imgoing to watch it anyway becuz i love hearing myself complain. but if punk and bryan lose i will never watch the wwe again becuz it sucks.

      your gimmick would get over iwc im telling you ..if you said stuff like that in a promo on an indy show the so called smark marks would hate you with a passion. riots would ensue , you would be a heat magnet. they would buy a ticket just to see you get beat up ..you should do it !

  • smark calloway

    the only thing that will make the match is if cesaro gives the giant swing, to a real giant ..the great khali. not only will it be impressive, it would look hilarious too

    • Xavier

      Man, that would be a sight to see. I don’t know but you’ve somehow managed to get me excited for this match just to see if Cesaro can pull it off.

      • smark calloway

        if i was booking, thats how i would book the match. just base it around that one move . the ” can he give the giant , a giant swing ” notion …everybody will watch it to see if he can do it to khali

  • Kris Guenther

    I am a person who loves Cesaro’s work, so if this means he’ll get a PPV bonus, I’m all for it. But please, do something with the guy after tonight. Just something different please.

    • Xavier

      I’ve read reports on various sites that WWE creative is thinking about turning him face very soon. Creative using his giant swing to help get him over with fans and to help generate babyface pops for him so when they eventually turn him he’ll already be over as a face.

    I hope Cesaro wins. Especially for having to job to Santino on 2 separate occasions.
