Lucha Underground star Brian Cage star recently spoke with the Wrestling Epicenter about his career and more. During the interview, he was asked about his experience in Lucha Underground thus far. Cage noted that it’s been awesome and has been the most fun and best place that he has every worked at. He said that his entire life he wanted to be in WWE but now that he is working in Lucha Underground, he finally feels how he thought it would feel to be a pro wrestler.

Cage was a developmental talent in WWE from 2008 – 2009. When asked about his time in the company, he said that he didn’t have a bad time there at all and thinks that he was wrongfully let go. However, he feels that he is in a better place now but enjoyed his time there. “I got to live my life long goal of being signed with WWE. I wish it would have worked out. But, their loss is Lucha’s gain. ”

When asked if he has any hard feelings towards the company, “Yes and no. No, I’m not losing any sleep over it or anything. If you ask if I’d ever go back, I’d not be opposed to it. But, I don’t need to.” He added that he got released due to having a torn groin and having blown one spot in a match that he wasn’t cleared to have. He claimed that WWE was going to hire him back and be on Tough Enough but didn’t get hired. “Then Laurinaitis called me down to RAW when they were in my town, said they wanted me for NXT after Mania, always after Mania. I stayed in touch with him too and then it started to fizzle out. So, I called and said, “Hey, what is going on?” He said, “We’re no longer interested.” I was like, “What do you mean?” He goes, “Let’s face it, you’re average at best, and we’re just not interested.”

Cage also talked about Lucha Underground doing more live events, Matt Hardy and more. You can check out the entire interview here.
