Claudio Castagnoli is a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the movies Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
The Ring of Honor World Champion Claudio Castagnoli recently sat down with Chris Mueller of Bleacher Report to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about —
“OK, so I’ve watched Endgame 30 times at least, and Infinity War a bunch of times as well.” Claudio Castagnoli said. “It was one of those things where I literally flew home from Saudi Arabia, I landed at 7 p.m. on Wednesday for an 8 p.m. show, and flew out the next morning. I just wanted to go home to watch it.
“And just to watch it in the theater with people was so cool because at the end when Dr. Strange brings everybody back, the reaction to that was absolutely amazing. And then with Infinity War. I don’t think anybody thought Thanos would succeed, right? And then snapping away half of the superheroes that we got accustomed to, I thought that was a very bold and awesome move because it kind of kept everybody waiting for the next year or two for Endgame.”
“So to me, it’s also that it was the culmination of a 10-year build. It started with Iron Man and then all those movies built over 10 years. It was just this really well-done storyline. And you get invested in all the characters. You knew everybody’s backstory. And even the ones you don’t really know, they were in multiple movies, so you knew all of the cast.
“It was something that was unheard of. You had so many solo movie stars in one film, and it was so amazing. And then, as I said, the ending was so bold. And they kept you invested and kept you on your toes. So I thought that was really, really well done. I feel a lot of wrestling should be like that.”
When asked who the Thanos of pro wrestling is, Castagnoli gave a very understandable answer: “I think it will probably be Brock Lesnar.”
