Jim Ross – ‘Christian Cage Had A Very Unique Journey, He Was The Underachiever’



On a recent edition of his “Grilling JR” podcast, AEW broadcaster Jim Ross discussed the career of reigning TNT Champion Christian Cage, signing Captain Charisma to WWE, and how the 50-year-old wrestler forged his own identity.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the journey of Christian Cage’s career: “He’s had a very unique journey with some interruptions. He was the underachiever. He was, ‘Oh yeah, that’s Edge’s partner.’ You know what I mean? He had a hard time building his own identity. I think probably going to TNA helped him as much as anything because he got the chance to be in the spotlight and work in main event slots on television to see how he would deliver, and he delivered well.”

On signing Christian to WWE: “It was early. It wasn’t too long after I signed Adam. I knew of him because here’s the thing: Looking at tapes of Adam, it generally included Christian … He was on as much tape as I watching of Edge, Adam, as Adam was … Jay’s [Christian’s real given name] biggest issue is that everybody knows, to some degree, Vince McMahon is a body guy … I think we can all agree, without being naughty, that Christian’s body is not his forte. He’s athletic, he’s lean. I like it, because it’s a different look than the typical vision of a pro wrestler these days.”

Christian will defend the TNT Title against Adam Copeland later tonight in the main event of AEW Dynamite.
