Top WWE stars react to Claudio Castagnoli's debut in AEW

As many of you saw tonight, Claudio Castagnoli debuted at the AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door pay-per-view, and while many people already knew that he was likely AEW-bound, he still got the biggest pop of the night. The fans and AEW wrestlers were not the only ones who were happy to see him.

WWE stars Xavier Woods and Becky Lynch publicly expressed their happiness for Castagnoli tonight. This is almost unheard of but apparently, they were not worried about people in WWE getting upset with them for supporting their friend in AEW.

As soon as he showed up, Lynch tweeted, ".@ClaudioCSRO Yessssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!"

Lynch followed up by posting a screenshot from Castagnoli's AEW debut (see below).

Castagnoli was one of the most beloved people in WWE and there were a lot of people who were sad when he left the company in February. On tonight's pay-per-view, Castagnoli defeated Zack Sabre Jr. and he will wrestle at Blood and Guts this Wednesday night so he's already being pushed as a top guy from the start.
