Claudio Castagnoli FKA Cesaro Comments On His His First World Championship Win For ROH In AEW Era!

WZ reports.

During the media scrum after his title win at ROH Death Before Dishonor, Claudio Castagnoli was asked if his win finally ended talk about him being underrated or underappreciated. Claudio said that he’s not sure if he was ever underappreciated because he’s always had fans in his corner, then shared how he’s approaching this milestone and the next one.

“First of all, I feel like we’re all fans, right, and that’s something to be proud of. I just watched the matches today because it’s fun. That’s why we are wrestling fans, all of us. That’s how I think what we should be in our heart because it’s more fun to enjoy it that way. I don’t know if I was really underappreciated because I feel the fans were always in my corner. They always appreciated me, so I always had them on my side, which made me very happy, and I feel that’s why I’m where I’m at today, that’s why I hold [the title]. So will this put the debate to rest? I don’t know, that’s a question for the people debating it. For me, I said that before, this is just the beginning.

“Any time you reach a new height in your career, you always have two choices. You can either say okay, this is great, this is where I sit down and rest, or you could be like this is where the hard work just starts, and I have to pick up my game, I have to get better, I have to improve at this and do that, and I feel that’s how I always approach life. You’re happy with where you’re at, and I’m extremely ecstatic to be the Ring of Honor World Champion, but I also understand that there comes a responsibility with it, and there comes expectations with it, and I’m ready to step it up.”

Congrats to the new champ.
