Cesaro Shares How He Came Up With The Neutralizer As His Finishing Move


During an interview with the “Out of Character” podcast, WWE Superstar Cesaro discussed how he came up with the name ‘The Neutralizer’ for his finishing move. He said,

“Switzerland is neutral.  If you neutralize somebody, you put them out of commission.  It’s a wonderful pun.  It’s a wonderful homage to my home country.  I would like to take credit for it, but there may have been somebody else that said I should use it, and I said, ‘Ok, I’ll do it.’

“When I came through the ranks, it was one of those, ‘Can you hit your finisher on anybody?  Even the Big Show?’  I was like,’Let me show you.’  What move can I do that I literally could do to everybody after 30 minutes of a grueling wrestling match, that I could do 5 or 6 days a week?  I wanted to have something that was super effective, fun, and I could do to everybody.  What is usually scary is people are super sweaty or they slip or something like that, but there’s nobody that I was like, ‘That was a terrible neutralizer.’  It’s always fun to do it to Big Show, Khali, or Mark Henry, somebody that’s really big that’s a challenge.  Then you find different ways to get into it.  I love it.”
