WWE Superstar Cesaro Talks Cyberbullying And Favourite Food In Exclusive Interview!

Cesaro-WWExCYBERSMILE
A massive thank you to Cesaro and WWE for this exclusive interview. You can find links to our various advice and support services for cyberbullying and online abuse throughout this article.

Have you ever been bullied? If so, what was the situation and how did you overcome it?

Yes. At school and during sports. Talking to my friends or parents helped, or talking to the bullies directly.

When you were younger, what would you do if you saw someone being bullied? Would you change how you handled that situation?

Try to talk to the person being bullied and let them know they have a support system and are not alone. When I was younger, I would stand up for the person being bullied and tell the bullies to stop. Now, I would inform a teacher if the situation gets out of hand, because that could stop the bully from choosing another victim (our trained advisors can help you 24/7 if you are affected).

Can you provide advice to someone who may be a victim of bullying?

I’d like kids to know that you are not alone and there are people that care about you! There is a way out of the situation. Talk to your friends, parents or teachers as they are your support system.

Have you ever been cyberbullied? If so, what did you do to stop it?

I’ve learned that you can’t win an argument online. The golden rule applies online too – treat people like you want to be treated. Ignore and report the bullies. The worst thing you can do is respond or react since that’s what they want (check out our help center for more information and access to our support services).

What is your favorite movie?

Too many to name. All of the Star Wars movies, Gladiator, Forrest Gump and so many more. My recent favorite is Captain America Civil War.

What is your favorite food?

I love fajitas and chocolate – but not together!

What is your favorite thing to do?

Wrestling, working out, drinking coffee, listening to music, watching movies and TV.

What was your favorite class in school?

I liked geometry, history and business classes.

When did you decide you wanted to become a wrestler?

It was my dream since I was 12 years old.
