When Brian Cage was a part of WWE’s Florida Championship Wrestling developmental program he was given the name Kris Logan which was an homage to both Chris Kanyon and the comic book character Wolverine because he resembled the X-Men character. He sported yellow tights with claw marks too in order to really get the point across. He was later given the name Night Claw and expected to debut alongside the Hurricane
Neither Kris Logan or Night Claw were ever seen on WWE television, but since his 2009 release from WWE Brian Cage has been seen a lot of places. He’s a regular in PWG and also on Lucha Underground and now that he’s with Impact Wrestling it looks like they’re going to do something very special with him.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Impact Wrestling is going to give Brian Cage a huge push up the card which was described as “monster.” He’s also not doing as many acrobatic moves in Impact Wrestling because they “want him destroying people like a Goldberg.”
Once Brian Cage is in bigger programs it is reported the plan is for him to start doing more flying. But in the meantime, it looks like Brian Cage is going to run roughshod for a little while as his stock rises in Impact Wrestling.
