Recently on E&C's Pod Of Awesomeness, WWE greats Edge and Christian spoke with current WWE RAW Tag Team Champions Sheamus and Cesaro, The Bar. The interview was conducted before Brawn Strowman won a tag team battle royal to find a partner to face The Bar at WrestleMania.
Among many other things, the duo discussed the team's formation, team name, and Bar hand gesture. Also, the former Sheamus O'Shaunessy and Antonio Cesaro talked about whether they were both invested in the team from the start, and Sheamus addressed his WrestleMania open challenge tweets.
On the subject of the barroom brawl RAW segment that brought Sheamus and Cesaro together as a tag team, Sheamus shared that Cesaro did not want to drink the Guinness used for the 'cheers' at the end of the scene. "The Guinness they were pouring looked like it had been out for two weeks." Sheamus recalled, "we were sitting there so long I actually started drinking and it was absolutely disgusting. But at the end of it, there's a part where, like, we both do the 'cheers' and we drink the Guinness and Tony [Antonio Cesaro], Tony's looking at it, like, I don't know, like it's a pint of puke. So if you look closely at it, he doesn't even want to touch the stuff. So I was hoping Tony would get on the Guinness train, but no." Cesaro, who abstains from all alcohol, concurred that the segment ended awkwardly. "At the end, when we both have the Guinness in our hand," Cesaro remembered. "It's like this weird, awkward 'cheers' and he drinks and I just hold it till we go off the air. Yeah, good times." When Christian asked whether both Cesaro and Sheamus were "all-in" from the beginning, Cesaro immediately responded in the affirmative and Sheamus elaborated. "I was in from the beginning, the get-go." Sheamus explained, "we both talked about it, like, where we were, and we battered each other in the best of seven [series] to remind people just how good we were and what we could do. And then, the tag team thing came along and we jumped on it. It came out of left field. We had no idea where the whole thing was going."
