In an interview with TalkSport, Cesaro said that it really was Mick Foley’s idea to put him and Sheamus into a tag team, and that it wasn’t just something that Foley did as part of a TV angle when he was the GM of RAW. Here are highlights:
On moving to RAW recently: See, I was traded after the Superstar Shakeup. So, I actually thought that The Bar may not have been broken up, you know? You never know! Then, all of a sudden I get a message like Hey, your travel changed, and Im like Ah, OK yeah, guess Im a Raw guy now!
On Mick Foley putting The Bar together: For all I know, yes, it was his idea to put us together. He saw something in that and he was lobbying for the best-of-seven series and then to make us a team. So, thank you Mick!
