• SmackDown Wrestler Told Not To Perform Impressive Moves Because He’s A Heel
SmackDown Superstar Cesaro is arguably one of the most talented wrestlers on the planet, but he has never received the due recognition by WWE.
As many people know, Vince McMahon isn’t a big fan of The Swiss Superman because he thinks he can’t connect with the fans.
As seen over the years, Cesaro is a very powerful athlete, with a variable move-set. However, many backstage officials have restricted him to using selected moves only.
During a recent edition of the ARN Podcast, former WWE producer Arn Anderson revealed that Cesaro is not a favourite guy backstage, and he was told to stop doing impressive moves because he’s a heel:
“He’s not a favorite guy, as you know, of the front office, for whatever reason that is. They’re the only ones that know because everyone else across the planet seems to think he’s a Superstar.
But he continued to get leaned on to stop doing all that stuff [impressive moves] as a heel. It was just too flashy and all that stuff.”
