Chris Jericho has liked what he's seen from Brian Cage.
Brian Cage has been given more opportunities on AEW television in recent weeks as he's faced Bryan Danielson and Konosuke Takeshita in subsequent episodes of AEW Dynamite. After an extended absence from AEW TV and then joining ROH, Cage has caught the eye of Chris Jericho.
“I think Brian Cage over the last six months is the best Brian Cage has ever been,” Jericho told Matty Paddock of the Daily Star. “I think he’s finally starting to understand some of the psychology of wrestling rather than just moves and that sort of thing. He is one of a kind with his size and agility, but now there is more intensity and I think he’s really understanding who he is as a wrestler. Six months ago I might have said ‘Well, whatever, if he says that’s cool,' but now I think he has become a way more valuable part of our roster and I would sign him for sure. Absolutely.”
Fightful Select reported on January 24 that Cage's contract with AEW was "set to expire in a matter of weeks." It has not been confirmed if he has signed a new deal.
Cage is one-third of the ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champions alongside Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona.
