Bryan shocked fans earlier this year when he announced his retirement due to medical reasons.
“It made me very sad,” said Cesaro. “He was always so much fun to be around. I’m very happy that he was able to go out, talk to the fans, say goodbye, in a way that only he can.”
On concussions being a problem in the WWE, Cesaro said: “Everyone is well aware of the risks. They may not just want to face it because there are a lot, so it’s kind of a defence mechanism.”
“People always ask me if I’m afraid of going hurt, but I don’t think about it. It’s just always on your mind, even subconsciously. I also hope it opens people’s eyes a bit more to (show) what we do is very demanding.”
From the difficulty of making friends and spending time with family to the joys of travelling the world, life is a mixture of highs and lows for wrestlers.
Such is the demanding schedule, it not only takes its toll on the body but also the personal relationships that each wrestler has.
Here, Cesaro lifts the lid on those challenges and just how close his in ring persona is to his real life personality.
Join us tomorrow for the final installment where Cesaro discusses the retirement of Daniel Bryan.
Cesaro was in the UAE to promote April’s WWE Live Dune Bash event which sees the company return to the country for another stellar night of wrestling.
In part three on Friday, Cesaro will discuss his life as a WWE Superstar, where he talks about the constant travel, getting into character and difficulty in spending time with friends and family.
