Brian Cage is currently in AEW and was most recently the FTW Champion for Team Taz, before they turned on him back in July.
Since that time we haven’t seen too much of ‘The Machine’ on AEW TV, but it’s been clear that his booking has been a bit questionable for someone as talented as Brian Cage. This has also been covered by his Wife, Melissa Santos on social media.
Recently Konnan discussed the situation on his Podcast where the former WCW Star detailed why he believes that Cage will be on his way to WWE at some point.
“I found out about him because Norman Smiley who works there as a trainer in WWE said ‘hey they’re releasing this guy and he is a good guy, can you help him in Mexico. He did a tryout match with Eli Drake, they were a team somewhere in California and they went for a AAA tryout and that is where I met him. He was always bummed that he did not make it in WWE that was always his dream.”
Brian Cage showing up in WWE would certainly by a huge get for the company and something a lot of people are clearly surprised hasn’t happened yet. We’ll have to see how things play out, but according to Konnan, Cage has had WWE on his mind for a long time.
