Cesaro Says Being WWE Champion Is Still His Goal

Also compares Shinsuke Nakamura to previous partners...

Though he's been something of a tag team specialist in WWE (he currently reigns as SmackDown Tag Team champion alongside Shinsuke Nakamura), Cesaro isn't through exploring his prospects as a singles star.

Speaking with Newsweek, Cesaro maintains that he still intends to pursue a golden run at the top of WWE, holding the company's richest prize.

“The goal is to always be WWE World Heavyweight Champion," Cesaro says. "That's the goal for everyone in WWE and that's 100 percent my goal. And not just for me, but for all of Europe. For all of our international fans. I want to get in there and win one.

"It's just part of the journey. I'm glad I'm alright and the Cesaro Section all over the world is following me on this [journey], but that's still my goal.”

For the time being, Cesaro teams with Nakamura on Friday nights. In the interview, he compared "The Artist" to some of his prior long-term partners.

“He's completely different," Cesaro notes. "Every tag team partner I had just in WWE, Tyson Kidd, before that Jack Swagger, Sheamus and then Shinsuke they were all different. It's fun because it gives me a chance to adjust and be well-rounded.

"I like to play around whatever their strength is and it gives me the chance to elevate or focus on a different aspect of my game. That's a lot of fun for me.”
