Claudio Castagnoli Says AEW Makes Him Feel Like “A Kid In A Candy Store” AEW

Claudio Castagnoli says looking at the scintillating prospects for dream matches in AEW has him feeling like ‘a kid in a candy store.’

Tony Khan appeared alongside Claudio Castagnoli, formerly known as Cesaro in WWE, during the media scrum after tonight’s AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door.

As far as who Castagnoli is looking forward to facing most in AEW, Claudio said:

“What is most important is who the fans are excited to see. Who is my dream opponent? I don’t care. Who do you guys want to see me wrestle and here in AEW all that stuff can happen. … I can probably give you a short list of who I don’t want to step in the ring with, and that’s nobody. You know what I mean? So to me? I’m a kid in a candy store. You know when you go shopping and they go ‘pick whatever!’ and you just stand there like, ‘uh, I don’t know what to pick!’ [looking around] That’s me.  I’ve just come in here and I don’t know if you can tell but I’m very happy and it fits. This is my first night, and I told this to a bunch of people, but this is my first night and I feel like I’ve been here for years. It just fits. It’s awesome.”

Commenting on one specific possible dream match, Castagnoli wanted to mention one name in particular, noting:

“The last time I faced Kenny Omega was in Ring of Honor in 2008, I think we’ve both grown a lot since then I think that’s just worth a mention, you know what I mean? “

Before sharing a warm embrace with Tony Khan to end his section of the scrum, Claudio looked genuinely joyful closing with, “Hell yeah, Claudio is All Elite.”
