Cesaro was certainly one of the most gifted WWE Superstars in the company, with many believing he was criminally underrated. However, WWE never saw much potential in him in the end. He has since departed from the company and his success is notable.

Cesaro would eventually leave WWE earlier this year after his contract expired and did not renew his contract with the company. During his last stint with WWE, he challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Title in a main event level feud. However, he never won the title in the end.

While speaking during an appearance at Starrcast V with Chris Van Vliet , Claudio Castagnoli stated that he was on the verge of winning the World Title in WWE many times.

That natural thing, you’ve seen that with them. The last time that really happened was with Becky. Becky got red-hot and the fans made her undeniable. I feel I was on that verge a couple of times where the crowd was with me, my stuff was going awesome, and it was, ‘We’re going in this direction now.’ Okay, back to square one. That happened a bunch of times. In the end, it all led to this. A lot of stuff in life is about the journey.


Claudio Castagnoli is the current ROH World Champion and is truly happy working in AEW now. We’ll have to see how he will be booked as the champion in the coming weeks.
