Claudio Castagnoli appeared on the Stay With Wrestling Podcast ahead of Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite. Eddie Kingston has stated in many press interviews that he doesn’t really like Castagnoli. That’s why he was asked if he liked Kingston.
“Eddie Kingston always has a lot to say. I think Eddie Kingston is a very, very talented fighter and he is also very authentic which is why he resonates so well with the crowd. I’ll leave it at that.
I think a match between him and me would be the most interesting for many different reasons, so let’s hope it happens.
[Castagnoli was told he seems like a balanced person] I feel like that’s what you should have. If you have a lot of hate in your life, you might end up like Eddie Kingston and just, you know? [Castagnoli laughed], I’ll leave it at that. I like to be a little more balanced so I don’t rush into things, you know? So yes.”
At AEW Full Gear, Castagnoli will be part of a four-way for the ROH world title with Bryan Danielson, Sammy Guevara and word champion Chris Jericho. He commented on the match:
“Full Gear is just around the corner and Full Gear is always, you know, when you, no pun intended, jump into full swing because it’s big pay-per-view. It has many matches that mean a lot, including the Ring of Honor World Championship is on the line I want to win back and Bryan [Danielson] wants to win it back of course. We just want to get it from Chris Jericho. So for me it is a very exciting time for AEW, for Blackpool Combat Club and for wrestling fans in general.”
