Jake Hager Comments On The Reports That He’ll Be Grappling Jon Jones, More


During the latest edition of the “Throwing Down w/ Renee and Miesha” podcast, AEW Superstar Jake Hager commented on the talk that he’ll be grappling Jon Jones on December 9th in New Jersey, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the situation with Jon Jones and thinking Jones wants to work in AEW: “Well I don’t know what’s going on, because I’m training and I’m ready. As far as I know, it’s on. And then it got quiet on his end. I don’t know if he saw my resume and was like ‘oh, this is an Oklahoma country boy I don’t want to wrestle with.’ Maybe he saw I wrestled for AEW and he got a little scared. Everybody wants to work for AEW, so maybe he wants to get a job. Jon, come out of hiding. Prove that you’re still the GOAT, and I’ll put in a good word with Tony for you. I work with GOATs every single day Jon. I work with the GOAT of pro wrestling Chris Jericho. So I’m like the farmer of GOATs, and I can also wrestle a little bit.”


On how Jon Jones jumped the gun with his announcement: “I was at dinner one night and I got the phone call from my head coach Josh Rafferty. He was like, ‘Hey, what’s up man? I’ve got a great situation for you. You should just say yes before I tell you what it is.’ I love Josh, he’s the man, so I’m like, ‘Yes.’ Then he tells me and I’m like, ‘Okay, yes. Go make it happen.’ As far as I know, we were waiting from then on to just do the negotiation and finalize everything. Then he jumped the gun a little bit, made that Twitter announcement when we didn’t have anything signed. I know my response was a little bit harsh, but you’ve got to get my name right, you’ve got to get my company right if you want to work with me.”
