Re: Antonio Cesaro is going to be "the best"
I don't know if he'll be THE best, just because he's not too big and there are other guys in the running, guys we haven't even seen yet. But he'll absolutely be up there. Just his smug face, his delivery, he's GOT IT. I know it doesn't look amazing right now, but he's just arrived and he's already delivering better promos than 75% of the roster.
He doesn't have choppy English, he has an accent, which is a good thing because it distinguishes him from other wrestlers and presents WWE as global.
His mic skills are outstanding for a sports-entertainment rookie. I'm not saying a WRESTLING rookie, a WWE/sports-entertainment rookie where your purpose in life is to elicit a crowd reaction purely with the microphone. He reminds me of Kurt Angle: his early promos weren't amazing, but they had great delivery and purpose and demonstrated obvious potential. The anti-American foreigner has been done, I'm pretty sure the Eurosnob has been done before, but that doesn't matter because there's no one else playing that role right now. Dolph Ziggler and John Cena aren't original, heck every good gimmick has been done before, but they're unique RIGHT NOW, and they're awesome at what they do. He's playing a great character, and he'll only get better. He's got a great look too.
