Contract Negotiation Details Between Brian Cage And AEW Are Revealed

Contract negotiations between Brian Cage and AEW have been challenging from the start. When it was initially revealed that he had joined AEW, he was still weighing the opportunities to stay on Impact Wrestling’s roster. A pre-Rob Van Dam match injury to “The Machine” at Hard to Kill in 2020 complicated matters further.

The former star of Lucha Underground eventually changed into All Elite while recuperating from the bicep rupture. At this point, as the AEW contract is about to expire, his time on the sidelines may be having an effect on when it expires. The initial expiration date for the Cage AEW contract was set for sometime in late January or early February.

Tony Khan, though, wanted to keep Cage around until at least the end of June due to the time he lost healing from his injuries at the start of his career. But despite a contract renewal that is now on the table that matches his existing terms and powerful backstage voices like Chris Jericho supporting him, Cage is reportedly hesitant to sign on again.

When the former FTW Champion becomes a free agent, WWE reportedly has expressed interest in him and is eager to speak with him. Cage and Khan have agreed to continue working together through Ring of Honor’s Supercard of Honor pay-per-view at the end of March, even if Cage may be inclined to consider all of his alternatives before committing to a new contract anywhere.

Brian Cage WWE’s development

He and the other members of the Embassy are anticipated to defend the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title there; however, if Cage is indicating that he is leaving, it is unlikely that they will be able to do so. Brian Cage was in WWE’s developmental system before making a name for himself in Lucha Underground, IMPACT Wrestling, and AEW. In 2008, he became a member of the company and was assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling.

Brian Cage said he had a good experience in FCW. He also claims that his release in 2009 caught him completely off guard. Brian Cage claims he been later approached about returning to WWE. He claims he was approached by the organisation about potential parts on Hard Enough and the season finale of the original NXT. Neither one of those prospects came to fruition in the end. Cage has stated that he no longer wishes to work with WWE.
