Christian Cage Discusses Negative Fan Reaction To His AEW Signing

AEW

While on the newest edition of Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Christian Cage discussed a wide range of topics.

During it, the former AEW TNT Champion looked back on signing with AEW in 2021.

“I think we (myself & WWE) were back-and-forth a little bit and we never got as far as numbers or anything like that. I think it was more like scheduling stuff, like what I was willing to do and I think we were trying to get some traction there and a friend of mine, Jon Moxley, called me and we were talking and when he found out that I wasn’t signed, he was blown away by that and he said, ‘You should have a conversation with Tony Khan,’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know…’ Well, he said, ‘You’re actually an idiot if you don’t.’ He said, ‘You hold all the cards here,’ and he said, ‘You have the ability to pick the stage where you finish your career. You should at least have a conversation, don’t you think?’ I said, ‘Yep,’ and I said, ‘If Tony wants to talk to me, I’d love to have a conversation with him…’ It was that day, it was a Wednesday so they were doing TV that day and when their show was on, I got a text from Tony. Yeah, saying, ‘Hey, how are you?’ I said, ‘I’m great. How are you?’ And he said, ‘Should we talk?’ And I said, ‘I think we should’ and so he called me the next day and we talked on the phone for almost three hours and halfway through that call, I knew AEW was the place for me and not only that, but working for a guy like Tony Khan. That’s basically how it all came to fruition was just from that one phone call and then we talked one other time later in the week and then that was it.”
