“Every single person at home sitting in the, as we call it, Cesaro Section knows it and has ever known it. I appreciate you, I appreciate what you believe in, and that’s why I fight every single day, and I love it. Love, Paul, because I love wrestling. Love will always succeed. Your next Universal Champion, Cesaro, out.”
