Last week, The Swiss Cyborg faced Ridge Holland in a singles match that marked the latter's in-ring debut on SmackDown. Holland idolizes Sheamus, and the two allied a short while ago. The Celtic Warrior accompanied his protege to the ring for his match against Cesaro that eventually ended with the eight-time champion picking up the victory.
Following the match, the Swiss superstar discussed how much he enjoyed the clash since his victory upset his former ally, Sheamus. He also compared him to an "angry rooster."
Cesaro noted how several superstars underestimated him but asserted that he had outlasted all of them because he has that good inside the ring. His brutal shots at Sheamus and Ridge Holland hinted at the possibility of an extended feud on the blue brand.
"It was a start. I am certainly not done," said Cesaro. "It feels great though, you know seeing Sheamus that frustrated and seeing Ridge that dazzled, this whole big game about 'Ohh, I am going to be better than you, I am going to be better than them all, I am going to be so good', you know how many times I have heard that? People come in here trying to intimidate me by telling me how good they are, all the potential in the world, I have been in the ring with so many of them, and so very few are still here."
"I am here because I am that good. I don't think people understand that. I may sound conceited but it is the truth. It feels great and I am going to go watch the replay of Sheamus being that upset because it is a lot of fun watching Sheamus being that upset. He's like an angry rooster in a weird way, right?"

Details on the feud between Sheamus and Cesaro on WWE SmackDown
Sheamus was the fifth and final member of the SmackDown Men's Survivor Series team. He nearly lost that spot to Cesaro, who put up a great challenge during the qualification match. The Swiss Cyborg was close to picking up victory but was distracted by Ridge Holland, who wanted to help his 'idol'.
The Celtic Warrior eventually won the match and thanked Holland by taking him under his wing. A week later, Ridge Holland made his debut in a match against Cesaro and delivered an impressive performance, but it was not enough to pick up a win.
