On this week's "The Gentleman Villain," William Regal talked about Claudio Castagnoli signing with AEW.

“It’s incredible to not only have him part of AEW, but I think he is one of my favorite people. I think he's one of the great professionals of the world that everybody can learn from if they watch the way he carries himself backstage," Regal said.

"I could do a whole podcast on my admiration for Claudio. He's a pro through and through. He’s incredible. From the way he carries himself, what he's gone through, how he's got to this point in his life and just getting to America. I really do think he is quite possibly the best professional around today. So to have him in AEW is incredible for everybody, not just as a wrestler, but for the way he conducts himself."

"If you can't, as a young wrestler, look at him and go take lessons, perhaps you shouldn't be in this job. Because if I just look at him, the way he looks, the way he dresses, the way he conducts himself, and his manners, it's what everybody should strive to be.”
