Fact: Antonio Cesaro is Very European

I’m a sucker for a good Twitter feud – CM Punk’s recurring spats with Stone Cold Steve Austin are a thing of great joy to me.

And it’s a good general rule of thumb that if William Regal is pushing you, you’re destined for the big time.

So hoorah and huzzah, then, for FCW’s new recruit Antonio Cesaro aka Claudio Castagnoli, who’s forcefully reiterating his case as to why Switzerland is the best country in the world. So far, his arguments include, “We were the most feared mercenaries in the 1700s and to this day protect the pope,” and if that’s not a good enough reason for you to join Twitter JUST to follow his feed, I’m not sure what would be.

Regal, of course, is giving as good as he gets (insulting Swiss chocolate, and calling Cesaro “cheesy” at every available opportunity) – the FCW and NXT co-commentator is giving Cesaro his seal of approval, via Twitter and on the mic, and it’s not surprising, really.

If you’re not familiar with his work in his previous life, let’s take a look at the portfolio of the artist formerly known as Claudio Castagnoli:

First of all…

We cannot overlook his alliance with Chris Hero, obviously – the word was that Hero would be moving to the WWE with his fellow King of Wrestling, but it’s not happened yet. Anyway, I selected this clip from Hero’s own YouTube uploads…

And let us not forget that Claudio is man enough to wrestle the wonder that is Sara del Rey.

Since Z:TLIS, are you fond of wrestlers with their own YouTube channels? Castagnoli’s your man. Well, at least he was. Claudio’s Cafe was brilliant, but for some reason since he’s signed to WWE, all the episodes have gone AWOL. All apart from this random but strangely entertaining tribute to coffee:

Here’s his debut promo in FCW, heeling it up:

And his debut match in FCW. Listen to the pop from the crowd!

Very European.
