Cesaro still has his eyes on winning the WWE championship

Cesaro has had a bit of a strange run through WWE. He’s clearly a talented wrestler who has much to offer as a singles star but he’s found most of his success working in tag teams. That’s what he’s doing now, as one half of the SmackDown tag team champions alongside Shinsuke Nakamura.

He’ll probably be in that role for a while but that doesn’t mean the main goal has changed, as he told Newsweek:

“... The goal is to always be WWE World Heavyweight Champion. That’s the goal for everyone in WWE and that’s 100 percent my goal. And not just for me, but for all of Europe. For all of our international fans. I want to get in there and win one. It’s just part of the journey. I’m glad I’m alright and the Cesaro Section all over the world is following me on this [journey], but that’s still my goal.”

For whatever reason, he just hasn’t been in the right place at the right time for an extended run at the top of the card as a singles wrestler.

Maybe someday.
