Claudio Castagnoli also known as Cesaro is in contract negotiations with AEW to sign a multi-year deal with the company.

AEW sources confirmed to SW that both sides have been in negotiations in recent weeks.

Claudio is looking for a fresh start after his WWE contract quietly expired in February 2022. Claudio did not want to re-sign with WWE after not agreeing on his projected planned character storylines.

At this stage of his career he is more focused on being satisfied with his in-ring character work than just getting a big money contract similar to Daniel Bryan.

AEW would make a great fit for Claudio especially in BlackPool Combat Club to which he has strong ties to Daniel Bryan and Lord William Regal.

As AEW’s & NJPW’s big “Forbidden Door” pay-per-view approaches the backstage is buzzing on potential surprises. Stay tuned to SW for the latest updates.
