Great news for those who believe Claudio Castagnoli will appear in AEW.
According to Fightful, the Swiss Superman has been training at Tyler Breeze and Shawn Spear’s Flatback Wrestling School in Orlando, Florida over the past several weeks. The news comes as many speculate that Claudio will indeed be Bryan Danielson’s replacement for the match against Zack Sabre Jr. tonight at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door. Claudio was one of the last to have worked with Danielson in WWE.
Fightful reached out to several promoters since Claudio’s WWE departure, and they all confirmed that he showed no interest in getting back in the ring anytime soon. Perhaps all of that has changed. Fans will just have to wait and see.
