Speaking to Chris Van Vliet on his Insight podcast at Starrcast V, Castagnoli revealed that there were a couple of reasons that he left WWE for the competition.

“I have matches for the next years that I want to do. While there are still guys in WWE that I haven’t wrestled that I want to wrestle, that number is less than at AEW. At my core, I always want to improve and get better and have new challenges.

“When I first went from Ring of Honor to WWE, I didn’t do so to be on TV or anything. For me, it was the logical next step. I had done a lot in Ring of Honor, what’s the next step and next challenge, the best guys.

“Same thing here, what’s the next step, the next challenge? AEW has been awesome. I had pretty much the best first month I could have dreamt of” Claudio concluded.
