— Brian Cage recently appeared on Ring Rust Radio, here are the highlights…
On Ultima Lucha Being Two Weeks: I think the reason they made it two weeks long is because my match is going to be so epic and will be an episode in its own right. Ultima Lucha itself will be awesome and I feel every week of Lucha Underground is amazing. I don’t want to sound boring or cookie cutter and say expect more of the same, but really the wrestling is awesome and the matches are so great. It’s going to be the culmination of everything up to this point and what you would expect from a season finale. Mack and I are going to tear the roof off of the place. We have had a couple of good ones though they were short and sweet. This time we will get to put it all out there and have a great match and I don’t think it is going to disappoint.
On Signing With Lucha Underground: You know like Striker says, “I am the total package of everything that is lucha”. While I think it’s good to have those opposites here and there, but I think my styles fit really well here. At first they think I don’t belong here, but then they see my styles and my ability and it meshes well them and their style altogether. It gives them something new and brings almost a hybrid style of a so called big-man. I love it here. I was a little unsure myself jumping on board and seeing how it would work out. I was worried it wasn’t going to work out or turn out to be a flop. It’s been phenomenal and the best company I have ever worked for. I am glad and couldn’t be happier that I signed on board. I am looking forward for everything down the road and think it will be a big success.
On Lucha Underground Doing a Season Format: The season thing I was shaky going back and forth with at first. I know originally they wanted a shorter time lapse but I’m not so worried now. Its shot more like a TV show, and I think that will help to keep people wanting more. Like when we took that winter break last year. Everyone thinks it won’t work because you will lose momentum, but this has never been done before. There are a lot of things Lucha is doing that no one has before like shooting in a whole different angle. The only way to see how it works is to try it. I am getting more and more confident that it will be fine and not too long of a break. We will see how it goes moving forward shooting the seasons. I think season 2 will be everything season 1 was and just so much more. You know what to expect, people will want to be a part of it, and wrestlers will even want to sign on. Everyone is going to more excited for season 2 and deliver more than season 1 did.
On Being Cut From WWE Developmental: I’ll be straight and blunt with it, because they are idiots. They want something to hang their hat on and if you are not their guy they will let you go. Not going to pull any punches, but I would be totally open to going back to them. With many things permitting. I am not opposed to going back, but I don’t care if I ever go back. If I ever work for them cool, if I don’t my life is super happy and I am living the dream right now. I did love my time down there and things did go great.
