Cage made his promotional debut at the Revolution pay-per-view event where he signed his multi-year deal with AEW. The promotion had been hyping a Hall of Fame-worthy talent signing and Christian filled this spot.
He reflected on signing with AEW at Revolution.
“I get there, and straight onto a bus, and it’s nerve-wracking you know, because you’d be like, ‘Will anybody even care that I’m here?’ You know, you have those kind of thoughts that go through your head a little bit.”
He worked his first match in AEW against Frankie Kazarian several weeks ago on Dynamite. He noted that he wanted to raise Kazarian's stock in the outing.
“I wanted to raise his stock no matter what happened in that match, and I know he felt the same way… When you have two guys committed to that purpose, I think you’re gonna go out there and do something really special.”
