During an interview with Sports Illustrated, AEW star Claudio Castagnoli commented on not re-signing with WWE and his desire to wrestle in AEW.
“It can be hard to take the high road, but that’s the road I am going to take,” Castagnoli said, opting not to criticize his former employer. “All the memories, they matter. I’m grateful for everything I have accomplished and I’m grateful for all those opportunities. And they make me work so much harder to get where I want to be.
“Once I left, I knew what I wanted and where I wanted to go, I just didn’t know if it would happen. That was also time for me to take a break mentally, recharge, and come back better. My goal is always to be better than I was yesterday, to be better tomorrow than I am today. I want to be even better now than people remember.”
