• A Lot Of Wrestlers In WWE Reportedly Shocked By Cesaro Joining AEW
Cesaro’s WWE contract expired earlier this year and he decided not to re-sign.
He was offered a big money contract, but he still turned it down.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE wrestlers were shocked when they saw Claudio Castagnoli debut in AEW, as they believe Tony Khan might have given him even more money to join his company:
“The feeling is AEW must have matched or topped it and in WWE, the feeling was that AEW was no longer doing that and that Castagnoli could have made a very substantial amount of money in WWE even though there was little chance of a push.”
At AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door, Claudio defeated Zack Sabre Jr.
On Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Claudio helped his team win the Blood & Guts match in the main event.
