Cesaro was certainly one of the most talented Superstars in the WWE and for many fans, he was severely underrated. Cesaro never reached the main event level scene in WWE and fans simply hated that. Cesaro also wants a piece of Kazuchika Okada.

The Swiss Superman eventually left WWE and made his long-anticipated AEW debut at the Forbidden Door pay-per-view event. Since then, he has become a highlight of AEW television.

While speaking during a Starrcast V media scrum, Claudio Castagnoli revealed that he really wants a piece of Kazuchika Okada and explain why a match would mean a lot to him.

“I would just pick Okada. Mainly because I’ve known Okada for over 10 years, actually. When he wrestled at Chikara, he stayed at — me and Chris Hero had a house that a lot of the guys stayed, including Okada, and then I saw him again when he was training in Mexico. So, I think I have a picture of me and him when I still had hair and when he was not ‘The Rainmaker’ yet. So I think there’s definitely a lot of history there. So yeah, definitely. He would be one of many guys that we want to face.”


Claudio Castagnoli is the current ROH World Champion and is truly happy working in AEW now. He will defend his title against Konosuke Takeshita, at AEW Battle of the Belts III on August 6. We’ll have to see how the match will turn out to be.
