According to Wrestling Inc., the contract of Cesaro is set to expire following WrestleMania 37 in April and it unknown at time of writing whether he will sign an extension.
A WWE Superstar since 2011, ‘The Swiss Superman’ first began life in the company in developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling after arriving from Ring of Honor but spent less than a year in the league before promotion to the main roster came in 2012.
Making his WWE television debut on the April 20, 2012, SmackDown with then real-life partner and valet Aksana, the Switzerland native soon became a favourite with fans regardless of his stature as heel or babyface thanks to his superior in-ring skills and ability to stage a gripping bout with anyone in the locker room.
Tag teams with Tyson Kidd, Shinsuke Nakamura and most notably Sheamus – as The Bar – yielded unprecedented success and doubles gold through the years, while Cesaro also reigned as WWE United States Champion while fans called for his promotion to the main event and a WWE Championship reign that never transpired for one reason or another.
However, determined to prove that he was more than just a one-trick tag team pony, Cesaro branched out to NXT where he contested a thrilling 2-Out-Of-3-Falls Match with Sami Zayn and headed to NXT UK for a stunning encounter with Ilja Dragunov at NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff on August 31, 2019. The reception he received from the British crowd was one of the loudest pops in the brand’s history.
Recently, Cesaro competed in the 2021 Royal Rumble Match entering number 28 and lasting only 4:10 before being eliminated by a returning Braun Strowman.
