Claudio Castagnoli (Cesaro) Makes AEW Debut, Defeats Zack Sabre Jr. At Forbidden Door


During Sunday night’s AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view event, Claudio Castagnoli (Cesaro in WWE) made his debut with All Elite Wrestling.

Castagnoli came out as Bryan Danielson’s hand-picked mystery opponent for Zack Sabre Jr. The two men faced off in an epic battle, which resulted in Castagnoli picking up the win with a Ricola Bomb.

Castagnoli was released from WWE back in February and this marked his first pro wrestling appearance since then.

The former Cesaro will now go on to complete in the Blood & Guts match that will be taking place on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
