Remembered for their iconic battles inside the ring, Matt Hardy and Christian Cage remain great friends all these years later.
During the most recent episode of The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy, Matt spoke with Christian Cage, who joined him in AEW in March 2021 after a seven-year retirement due to concussions and other injuries. Hardy noted that even before Christian returned to the ring at the 2021 WWE Royal Rumble, talents such as Jon Moxley wanted him at the company because of his intellect. Friends for 25 years now, Matt says that Cage's wrestling mind is unmatched.
"[Christian] really is one of the greatest minds I've ever met in pro wrestling. I know when he thought he was retired for the longest time there were so many people -- I know Jon Moxley wanted him to go to AEW as a producer or as a coach, as an agent helping to put together matchups, his mind is great. That was something we always kind of had that very special bond where we were like, almost underappreciated. But he's a great dude and we've been just such great friends for 25 years now, a quarter of a century. And his wrestling mind is unmatched. He has a very, very talented gift when it comes to wrestling and wrestling psychology," Hardy said.
Elsewhere during their discussion, Christian shared that he and Edge were originally supposed to split up after WrestleMania 2000. Click here to learn more.
