The partnership between Brian Cage and his manager Taz could be on the way out. At Fight For The Fallen, the FTW Champion never submitted to AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, but the match ended when Taz threw in the towel.
It looks like now Cage is unhappy with his manager and is considering relieving Taz of his duties. If this breakup happens, it would be a quick end to their business partnership.
Jim Ross talked about Taz potentially overshadowing Cage in a recent Busted Open Radio interview.
“We had some camera work that we need to be more aware of. Taz does not need to be standing in front of Brian Cage. I’m not knocking Taz. He may take it that way, but so be it. Nonetheless, we have to have better positioning in that regard. Taz has cut some damn good promos. I really enjoyed those quite frankly. When Brian got the FTW belt, he didn’t register it one bit. He was nonplussed. So, if it didn’t mean sht to him, then why should it mean sht to me, or you, or the fans? There have been a lot of good things in this build. I like Taz’s heel work. His promo work is as good as anybody we have right now, quite frankly. But, Cage has got to show more personality…He is a hell of an athlete, and sometimes he works as a babyface with all the flying stuff, and that may need to be addressed. It’s a learning process.”
This is what Cage had to say today on Twitter.
“It’s been a rough couple of days, and @OfficialTAZ and I have gone back and forth. I’ve considered relieving him of his duties, and wanted to immediately after the match. I’ll wait and see how I feel after the weekend.”
“Regardless, I never tapped. I wasn’t gonna tap. I only need one arm to drop mox on his head. I technically may no longer be undefeated, but I’m still unbeaten. And more importantly, the answer to the question “who betta than cage?”, is still NOBODY!”

Clearly, this could all be a work, but it makes for interesting TV next week on Dynamite. Still no word on if Cage or Taz will appear.
