AEW star Claudio Castagnoli narrates how his Andre The Giant Trophy got shattered

Recently crowned ROH Champion Claudio Castagnoli shared a story about how his Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy got smashed.

Castagnoli (formerly of WWE’s Cesaro) won the first-ever Andre The Giant Memorial Trophy at WrestleMania 30. He secured the historic win by bodyslamming at The Big Show, much like Hulk Hogan bodyslamming Andre The Giant at WrestleMania 3 .

Speaking to Chris Van Vliet on Starrcast’s Insight, the Blackpool Combat Club member explained that the trophy didn’t even last a day.

“Well, I don’t know if you remember, but the trophy I had was destroyed the very next day. What happened, the thing is heavy, it’s huge. The base is absolutely solid. Until Corbin picked it up the other day, nobody had picked it up. I don’t know if you remember, but every time someone after me won the Andre the Giant battle royal, they would stand next to it and do the pose next to it, and they’d have it ringside. (H/D – ITR)

Claudio Castagnoli further mentioned that he still hasn’t received the broken parts of the prestigious trophy.

“The next day they just carted it around for me, and they have these little baby ramps that go over cables. Someone pushed it, it went that way and the trophy just broke completely. So they fixed it as best they could, they still have it in stock. I never did the broken parts I was supposed to get, but I still have the plaque.” (H/T – ITR)

Claudio Castagnoli says winning the Andre The Giant Battle Royal was special
