After an extended break from AEW television, Brian Cage has been seen more in recent weeks. He faced Bryan Danielson two weeks ago on Dynamite, and Konosuke Takeshita on Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite. Cage is also one-third of the ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champions alongside Bishop Kaun and Toa Liona.
Chris Jericho has taken notice.
Speaking with the Daily Star, Jericho spoke up in support of All Elite Wrestling re-signing “The Machine.” He said, “I think Brian Cage over the last six months is the best Brian Cage has ever been. I think he’s finally starting to understand some of the psychology of wrestling rather than just moves and that sort of thing. He is one-of-a-kind with his size and agility, but now there is more intensity and I think he’s really understanding who he is as a wrestler. Six months ago, I might have said ‘Well, whatever, if he stays that’s cool,’ but now I think he has become a way more valuable part of our roster and I would sign him for sure. Absolutely.”
It was previously reported that Cage’s AEW deal was set to expire in the near future. No word yet on whether Cage has signed an extension with All Elite or Ring of Honor.
