Claudio Castagnoli Wants Match With Kazuchika Okada
Claudio wants a piece of ‘The Rainmaker’
The ‘forbidden door’ seems to be closed for now since the conclusion of the successful AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door PPV in June, but if it opens again then Claudio Castagnoli wants Kazuchika okada to step on through.
Castagnoli made his AEW debut at Forbidden Door, and during the Starrcast V media scrum stated his intention to face The Rainmaker:
“I would just pick Okada,” said Claudio. “Mainly because I've known Okada for over 10 years, actually. When he wrestled at Chikara, he stayed at - me and Chris Hero had a house that a lot of the guys stayed, including Okada, and then I saw him again when he was training in Mexico. So, I think I have a picture of me and him when I still had hair and when he was not ‘The Rainmaker’ yet. So I think there's definitely a lot of history there. So yeah, definitely. He would be one of many guys that we want to face.”
Okada wrestled one match for CHIKARA in 2006, defeating Osiris at the From Zero to Hero (& Castagnoli) event.
