Christian Cage discussed returning to in-ring action and having talks with Edge about it during an appearance on Oral Sessions.
Here is what he had to say:
“I kind of floated out there to Vince [McMahon] that I had been cleared. He was very happy about it, and we had a couple of conversations about it. I said there was still some work to do, but we’ll see where we get to at this point and move forward from there. I knew I still wasn’t ready to get back at that point, and that was probably end of September or October. I knew there was still some work to do, but I was much closer than I was in July.”
“He was one of the very few people that knew the work I was putting in. I told him what I was thinking, and he was very supportive because it had been taken away from him as well. When you get to that point where you think it’s gone and then it comes back, it’s almost like, ‘What just happened?’ I know when he came back at the Royal Rumble the year prior, he’s always been very good at keeping his nerves in check. I’ve never really seen him nervous before, but he was super nervous before that Rumble. I was there lightening the mood and making him feel positive. I was like it’s like riding a bike. Just a very calming presence for him, and he kind of did the same with me. It was just reversing roles. Just a great sounding board, and here we are.”
