We reported earlier this week here on eWn that AEW picked up the one-year renewal option on the contract of Brian Cage. Due to this, he will be staying with the company until at least 2023. It seems a little odd that the company has picked up the option as Cage hasn’t been used on AEW television since October of last year. He also hasn’t been backstage at the TV tapings in months. It appears Tony Khan still has long-term plans for him in AEW and is allowing Cage to work the indies until that time comes.
According to a report from Fightful, Cage’s contract was expected to expire on February 21st. Several days before that, the company picked up the renewal option.
