Brian Cage Clarifies Comments on Cody Rhodes’ WrestleMania 40 Win: No Hard Feelings

One Big Thing

Brian Cage, the AEW star, clarifies his previous comments that seemed to dismiss Cody Rhodes’ significant victory at WrestleMania 40, saying he never intended to take shots at Rhodes or WWE.

Key Takeaways

  • Cody Rhodes defeated Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 to win the Undisputed WWE Championship.
  • Brian Cage’s initial tweet praised Bryan Danielson and Will Ospreay’s match at AEW Dynasty as the “match of the year,” overshadowing Rhodes’ win.
  • Cage clarified on X (formerly Twitter) that his earlier comments were not meant as a slight against Cody Rhodes or WWE.

Clarification from Cage

“I don’t care what story you finish. That was the match of the year. @WillOspreay vs @bryandanielson #OspreyVsDanielson #AEW #AEWDynasty,” Cage initially tweeted, sparking speculation.

Following the backlash, Cage stated, “My “bother with this app” tweet had nothing to do with the best match tweet. Yes, I enjoyed Ospreay and Danielson more than anything else this year, but I did not take a shot at Cody, Roman, WWE, or anything.

Why It Matters

The situation underscores the ongoing rivalry and tension between AEW and WWE, highlighting how comments from wrestlers can be easily misconstrued in the competitive environment. It also shows the respect wrestlers have for their peers’ achievements across promotions.

Looking Ahead

With Cody Rhodes set to defend his title against AJ Styles at WWE Backlash France, the wrestling community is eager to see if Rhodes will respond to Cage’s clarifications and the broader conversation about cross-promotion rivalries and respect.
