AEW WRESTLEDREAM LIVE BLOG & MATCH COVERAGE
Everything about her is base, she belongs to the Machiavellian race. She acts austere but that’s a little joke, because this little trollop is quite morally broke, but me? I’m not any better, but I am here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.

Post-match, Josh Barnett gets on the mic and says he’s heard a lot about Claudio from friends, training partners, and he’s highly regarded. Hearing is one thing, but experience is another, and he has to admit, they’re all right, correct to the bone, every one of them.
In fact, they don’t even understand how great Claudio actually is. He came in here with no expectations and leaves with only the highest for him. He promises him Antonio Inoki would absolutely be a fan of his and he’d vouch for him. Tonight he gave him a challenge and he overcame in front of his home town, and he’s very proud of him... but this ain’t over.
He says he’ll come someday, some place, and he’ll claim that time, so keep training, keep pushing, do not sit down, and he’ll be proud to see where Claudio goes. Castagnoli grabs the mic and says any time, any place, and raises Barnett’s hand.
