Cesaro hinted after the latest episode of WWE SmackDown that he wants to face Drew McIntyre in a one-on-one match for the first time.

McIntyre defeated long-term rival Sheamus in a seven-minute match on this week’s SmackDown. Cesaro did not compete in a match on the show, but he did give his thoughts on The Scottish Warrior’s victory in a post-match interview.

Speaking to backstage reporter Megan Morant, The Swiss Superman dropped a cryptic hint about potentially facing Drew McIntyre in the future.

“I’m still upset about Sheamus beating me last week, so I hope I can get in the ring with him fairly soon and pay him back for that," said Cesaro. "It’s fun watching Drew. I’ve never had a match with Drew, so something to think about."
