ClaudioCastagnoli made quite a debut on AEW DYNAMITE during Blood & Guts III when he “swung” Chris Jericho on the top of the steel cage! Claudio details that story along with the circumstances around his surprise AEW debut at Forbidden Door! He explains the original idea for his debut, and how an injury to longtime friend Bryan Danielson changed those initial plans. He talks about joining the Blackpool Combat Club with Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, Wheeler Yuta, and William Regal, what makes their chemistry work so well, and why he thinks Serena Deeb would be the perfect addition. Claudio also shares his thoughts on the ROH World Championship, what it was like being in the ring again with Dustin Rhodes and Jake Hager, and who he’s looking forward to working with at AEW. Plus, Claudio discusses his love of crossfit, flight simulator video games, bad puns, and rooming with Mr. Brodie Lee.
