5 Surprising moments from NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff
#4 Cesaro wins an NXT UK TakeOver match
I don’t know why we all seem to occasionally forget that Cesaro is amazing. He has been one of the best all-round performers in WWE for many years. Cesaro showing up to have any match in Cardiff was a really good idea. Using him to help put over a newer talent like Ilja Dragunov on Saturday night was an even better idea.
The match was a fast-paced and hard-hitting 13-minute encounter. The crowd loved seeing and counting to forty as Cesaro did his wonderful swing again. I hope he can beat a hundred swings in the near future. Ilja Dragunov looks like a real rising star as he kicked out of a lot of Cesaro’s brutal offensive maneuvers during the match.
But seeing Cesaro, who hasn’t had a lot of success on the main roster recently, winning a major match and looking like a star was a wonderful surprise in Cardiff. Hopefully, we will see more of Cesaro in the NXT UK brand. Who doesn’t want to see Walter versus Cesaro? Take my money now.Published 01 Sep 2019, 22:28 IST
