Christian Cage Reveals Former WWE Star Stole His Original Finisher


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 stated that he originally planned to use the TKO finisher, but Marc Mero asked to use it instead.

“Marc Mero stole my TKO. So, funny story: he was training to come back from an injury, and I was training at Bret Hart’s place in Calgary. When we were training, I did a version of the diamond cutter where I would scoop the guy up onto my shoulders, but I’d spin them off and hit a cutter out of the air. So I did it in the match, and Marc was sitting on the floor watching. He said hey, can you do that again? So I did it again, and then he said to me, Hey, man, you want to grab a bite to eat? And I was like, Sure. So when we grabbed a bite to eat and then we were just talking about some Japanese wrestling and some different stuff. And then he said, Hey, I’m going back in about a month. I said, okay, cool. He goes, would you mind if I use that finish? I was like, this is a guy that’s already signed. This is when he was coming back with the boxer gimmick with the shorts and the jacket and the whole deal. So I was like, what are you supposed to say? This guy’s is where I want to be. I said Yeah, I’ll think of something else, go ahead and use it, take it. And so he was nice enough to buy me dinner. But like I said, everything happens for a reason, and this finish suits me much more.”
