Paul Heyman‘s managerial services usually benefit stars. For Cesaro however, it may have hurt him.
Cesaro was one of the hottest acts in the WWE before and during WrestleMania XXX. The crowd cheered for him a lot and loved his giant swing move. He also had Jack Swagger‘s catchy theme song and shared his cool phrase of “We the People.” His character was catching on, and it looked like he was going to be a huge babyface. He even won the inaugural Andre the Giant Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXX.
Even since he sided with Heyman, his momentum slightly dipped. He was booked as a heel and people weren’t sure to cheer him or not. Some people still cheered for him, but his character wasn’t as approachable as before. It didn’t help Cesaro much with Heyman bragging about Brock Lesnar all the time too.
The worst part about Cesaro recently is his theme music. I like heavy metal music, but the recent theme songs have been horrible. Cesaro, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose all suffer from bad theme music. Cesaro suffered the worst though because people loved the Swagger theme song he shared before. He also lacks a good catchphrase.
Cesaro has now parted with Heyman for the time being as Lesnar will be coming back soon. Hopefully he can rebuild the same kind of momentum he had earlier in the year. It would also be better if he were to turn into a babyface.
