Brian Cage…I swear I’ve heard the name before…

He’s Christian’s older brother!


Good move. Glad they’re doing more with him if ROH’s full return is still a ways off. He had pyro for his Dark Elevation match after all.

Really looking forward to it. Rush and Hangman should be a lot of fun too

He looks like he ate Christian and it gave him gas. What a belly.

I hope Wardlow wins in 90 seconds

I’m in the same boat.

Aside from looking like a sure-fire star from 1985, Brian Cage has never done anything for me. He’s a solid jacked dude, but is pretty bland once you get down down to it.

He had a decent run in Team Taz, and that fun PPV match with Hangman… But he’s not some untapped resource, that he seems to think he is.


The match was long, and Wai liked it much more than I did. If you check out Brian Cage interviews, his impression of what makes a good wrestler is someone who can “do the [most] moves.”

He’s a nightmare to book because he’s top of the card or really nothing, but he can’t talk, and his moveset doesn’t match his build. Roidy Magoo, the most prominent of this generation.

But based on AEW’s Instagram, he has a wide following of people who thought he was going to take the belt off of Wardlow. Astounding, in a bad way.
