WWE “Maintains Interest” In AEW Star
AEW star and current Ring of Honor Six-Man Tag Team Champion Brian Cage could be calling time on his career in the promotions with WWE said to be waiting in the wings.
Brian Cage joined AEW back at Double Or Nothing in 2020 when he was the surprise entrant in the Casino Ladder match and won the whole contest. He is best known for his time in Team Taz and for his reign as FTW Champion which he eventually lost to Ricky Starks.
Currently, Cage is one-third of the ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champions alongside Bishop Kaun and Toa Liona as part of Prince Nana’s Embassy.
Fightful Select has reported that despite initial belief that Brian Cage’s deal with AEW was coming to an imminent end, the company had hoped to add time to his contract due to time missed because of injury. With time added that would have taken his contract to June 2023 but the star reportedly pushed back on that and was interested in his options as a free agent.
What might lie behind that is WWE has continued to maintain an interest in Cage and are “open to conversations” with the star about a future deal.
It is believed that Brian Cage and AEW came to an agreement for him to work through the ROH Supercard of Honor pay-per-view which will take place on March 31st. The report concludes by saying AEW has offered Cage an extension which is comparable to his current deal and some “heavy hitters” in the company have shown their support for him in recent weeks.
