"For me, it's one of those things where I had heard the buzz about Kenny for years, but I'd never really seen a full match of his until he was really kind of on top in New Japan [Pro Wrestling]," admitted Cage. "And when I watched his matches at that point, I was thinking, 'Damn, if I could have gotten the ring with this guy, we could have done some special stuff.' It was what-ifs, you know, like dream match type stuff. To be actually able to get in there and have a couple of matches with him. We had the match in the first episode of 'Rampage' where I beat him for the Impact title. Hey, we're one-on-one we still have to have that the rubber match here at some point down the line. It was huge. To be able to headline, to this point, the biggest pay-per-view that AEW has ever put on it is, it's pretty special. It's not lost on me that opportunity that I had to main event that pay-per-view. It's pretty big."

Following his feud with Omega, Cage turned his attention to the future of the company and teamed up with Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt of Jurassic Express but when asked about who he sees as a future AEW World Champion outside of his current stablemates, Cage pointed to a certain three-time holder of the Dynamite Diamond Ring.

"I think there are the obvious ones like MJF," Cage touted. "He is very gifted on the microphone and that sometimes even overshadows the fact that he's very good in the ring. And I look at a guy like Ricky Starks, who is also super talented. He can really talk. He's got that kind of aura about him, there's something there with him. He has the potential to be a huge star. Those are the kind of two guys off the top of my head that I think are pretty damn good."

Cage last competed alongside Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus as well as AEW World Tag Team Champions, Lucha Bros in a losing effort against FTR and The Hardy Family Office during the 12/29 edition of AEW Dynamite.
