Christian Reveals The Length Of His AEW Contract, AEW Debut

One of the biggest, if not the biggest moment in the history of wrestling took place during this past Sunday’s Revolution PPV when Christian Cage was revealed as the major star that has signed a contract with AEW. Christian Cage made his way down to the ring, didn’t utter a word, signed his contract with AEW and left the contract in the middle of the ring. Christian Cage then showed off his brand-new AEW shirt, which read, “Out. Work. Everyone.”

Christian recently appeared as a guest on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast, where he said it is weird and cool all in one to hear his full name “Christian Cage” again and it’s weird how things kind of come full circle.

This is what Christian Cage said:

“It’s weird and cool all in one to hear the full name ‘Christian Cage,’ again.” “It’s weird how things, like, kind of come full circle.”

Christian Cage then talked about not being nervous at all when he made his return at the Royal Rumble Event after seven years, but he was nervous when he faced the AEW crowd as he’s just kind of like the new kid in class.

This is what Christian Cage said:

“Let me be honest with you: When I did the Royal Rumble, like, what a month ago at this point, I was not nervous at all. And I hadn’t wrestled in seven years. When I walked out of that trailer to go out last night, I was nervous.” “You’re just kind of like the new kid in class.”

“This announcement had been hyped up, and it kind of took a life of its own. You’re like, ‘Oh, my God, am I going to live up to what people are expecting here?’ So, yeah. I think it was all of these nerves and just the anticipation of getting out there and getting started.”

Christian Cage then talked about not knowing AEW was going to promote his arrival ahead of time as he was thinking it was going to be a complete secret, and he was just going to show up, and it was going to be a complete surprise.

This is what Christian Cage said:

“I didn’t know. As far as I knew at that point in time, it was going to be a complete secret, and I was going to show up, and it was going to be a complete surprise.” “Honestly, on Wednesday, there was nothing signed. So, it was a shock to me when I heard it. Tony [Khan] and I hit it off fairly quick. We felt comfortable enough to definitely to get something done and worked out at that point.”

Christian Cage then talked about how long his AEW contract is for.

This is what Christian Cage said:

“It’s a long-term deal.” “I’m not here for just a couple of matches now, like, I’m here for the long haul.”

Christian then talked about who would be part of his dream matchups in AEW and not only will he be in the ring competing, but he will also be part of the coaching staff that will help, train and mold the up-and-coming talents of AEW.

This is what Christian Cage said:

“Like, all these possibilities you never thought were going to be – less than a year ago – were going to be real.” “You look at this roster, and there is so much young talent as well.”

“I mean, obviously, Jon and I have wrestled so many times, but we’ve bonded over wrestling. We never really had that much communication together. But when we worked together, it was kind of like opening that door with him as far as having conversations with him and that. We kind of came [up] on another level. I appreciate all the things he said about me. At some point, he and I are going to do something together, which I can’t wait for because we have great chemistry.”

“But you look at a guy like Kenny Omega, and I still haven’t met him. I didn’t even see him yesterday. Obviously, he has a great reputation for having great matches, so at some point, I think that is inevitable.” “Or I look at a young guy like Darby Allin, who’s got that – you don’t know what it is – but he’s got something, right? Like that Jeff Hardy, cool factor about him. Obviously, I think The Young Bucks. You know, obviously, the Edge and Christian thing can’t happen, but at some point, something will happen with those guys. Those guys were obviously Edge and Christian and Hardy Boyz fans. So, for them to share a space with them and eventually do something with them as well is huge.”

“It’s such a wide-open thing, and I haven’t fully wrapped my head around it. Or like MJF. He’s super talented. Even with the promos and things like that, he gets it. The fact that the roster is so young… being able to get in there and help mold some of these guys is what coming back meant to me, like helping set up the next generation.”
