AEW/ROH wrestler Brian Cage has been a lifelong wrestling fan and even used to talk about the squared circle with Aaron Rodgers when they were in high school together.
Cage graduated Pleasant Valley High School the same year as Rodgers, and on the latest episode of “Hey! (EW)” recalled his experiences with the future New York Jets quarterback. He said,
“You know what’s so cool about him? He was a really cool guy. Everyone, that was the Attitude Era, everyone watched wrestling, doesn’t matter how much they said they didn’t watch wrestling. Everyone watched wrestling.
“Him, still a high school quarterback, popular guy, he never faded once. He knew I was a huge wrestling fan, so math class, we would always talk. ‘Man, you watch Raw last night? You watch Nitro?’ He knew.”
Rodgers is expected to miss the majority of the season after suffering a torn Achilles tender in his first regular season game with the Jets.
