Claudio Castagnoli: Seth Rollins Is The Best Wrestler Today, The Mr. WrestleMania Of This Decade

Claudio Castagnoli recognizes Seth Rollins as being at the top of his game.

Speaking with Kevin Kellam of Sportskeeda Wrestling, ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli weighed in on Seth Rollins’ status in the wrestling world. Claudio said he sees Rollins as the best wrestler around right now, then went as far as calling him ‘Mr. WrestleMania’ of the 2010s.

“I think Seth Rollins is probably the best. I mean he’s definitely Mr. WrestleMania of this decade, and he’s arguably the best wrestler out there right now. What he’s been able to do at the level,” Castagnoli explained, “with any different opponent and how he’s been evolved has been absolutely fantastic and inspirational. He’s really good.”

Castagnoli also commented on recent changes in WWE, including Vince McMahon retiring and Triple H taking charge. Claudio said he just hopes the right moves are made because it will benefit everyone.

“I think hopefully good things are in store because the better the business is for everybody, the better it is for everybody.”

During a 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.”
