Claudio Castagnoli shows how great a wrestler he is and his career is on an upward trajectory. He recently became a champion and talked about himself as a person and his success. “I always feel you have to carry yourself with a certain grace, especially because of what people may expect a professional wrestler to be or to act or to look like,” Castagnoli said during an appearance on “Busted Open Radio”.
“Even if my WWE career was again, an uphill battle … it was a great uphill battle, because to me, even if I never won or will win that big title … I stay true to myself, and I feel that gives me a bigger bond with the wrestling fans”.
Claudio Castagnoli on success
He has many successes behind him and in his career, but he believes that people always want more. "If I would have won the title, right, that would have been the end of it kind of, you know what I mean?” Claudio Castagnoli said.
“It would have been like, ‘Hey, he won the title, he’s good now, that’s it,’ and then you have to kind of find what’s next. Everybody’s always looking for that destination, but it is the journey, right? It is the middle of it that’s so awesome, that’s so important.
That’s where you make all your friends, that’s where you make all your memories, and people forget that. Yes, it would have been awesome and I think I would have made a great champion,” he continued. “But if I look back, I had some amazing moments that you couldn’t fabricate … I won the first-ever Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal that nobody will ever be able to take away from me, so if it was an uphill battle, I’m very thankful for it, and I’m very glad so many people came on that journey with me … They remember despite me never being a champion, and I think that’s a big accomplishment, as well”.
