Claudio Castagnoli was certainly one of the most gifted WWE Superstars in the company, with many considering him very underrated. However, WWE never saw much potential in him in the end. That won’t stop others from giving the former Cesaro his flowers.

The Swiss Superman finally left WWE earlier this year after his contract expired, because he did not renew his deal with the company. Quite a few people were baffled by this as well.

Claudio never won any world titles while working in WWE, despite being there for a decade. While speaking on his podcast, Kurt Angle stated that he believes Castagnoli should have won five world titles in WWE.

“Oh my gosh, yeah (WWE missed the boat on Cesaro). He should have been a five-time world champion before he left WWE,” said the WWE Hall of Famer. “Not once did they give him the world title! I’m really surprised because that kid could do it all in the ring.”


Claudio Castagnoli won the ROH World Champion, but lost the title to Chris Jericho. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for him. Another World Title could be in store for him eventually.
