Antonio Cesaro Discusses How FCW Helped Him, WWE's Increased Focus On Indy Stars, His Future With Kassius Ohno, More

The Miami Herald has a new article up with quotes from Smackdown and FCW Superstar Antonio Cesaro. In the interview, he discusses his time in FCW, his lengthy tenure on the independent wrestling scene, working dark matches, and more. In the following excerpt, Cesaro speaks on how FCW was beneficial for him:

“It definitely helped me,” Cesaro said before the South Florida FCW show. “Experience is invaluable. I’m really happy to have that and to be here. I think everywhere you go you learn. You never stop learning. If you stop learning and think you know it all, then I think you may be in the wrong profession. If you love what you do, you never stop learning.”

When asked about the recent emphasis on and success of independent stars such as CM Punk & Daniel Bryan, Cesaro said:

“I think they are always signing wrestlers,” Cesaro said. “In wrestling, everything comes and goes in waves. If you look at some of those who are on top with Daniel Bryan and CM Punk, they have been in the same kind of wave. There is a perception of that. I think it’s definitely good, and there is a lot of talent down in FCW, which means they would be coming to WWE soon. It’s great.”

Cesaro went on to discuss his future with longtime tag team partner and fellow FCW Superstar Kassius Ohno:

“It’s always great rivalry between us,” Cesaro said. “I think fans always want to see stuff that they like, but I think we are going to see how we do individually and go from there.”
