Cesaro refused to confirm of deny talk that he has signed a new contract with WWE, doing so in a new interview with Sports Illustrated.

Here's what the SmackDown star had to say on the matter:-

“I’m not going to confirm or deny anything. To me, there needs to be a certain amount of mystery in wrestling. A lot of that magic gets lost, so I’ll let people talk. What is important to me is my work in the ring.”

Cesaro's future was the subject of speculation when January brought reports that his existing WWE contract was set to expire after WrestleMania 37 in April. The Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer provided an update the following week, reporting that Cesaro had either signed or agreed to sign a new deal, ending the rumours.

The 40-year-old had been pegged for Shinsuke Nakamura's spot in January's Universal Title contendership gauntlet match, only to be removed from consideration as he hadn't yet signed a new deal. Nakamura got the potential breakout role instead, shining in a run that took him all the way to the end of the bout, though the performance hasn't resulted in a major push for The King of Strong Style.

Cesaro doesn't appear to have an obvious direction heading into WrestleMania 37, though he has shared the ring with Daniel Bryan several times over the past few months.
