• “It doesn’t matter who showed up. There were going to be people that were disappointed” – AEW Wrestler
Former World Heavyweight Champion Christian Cage appeared on Chris Jericho’s weekly podcast ‘Talk Is Jericho’ and talked about his recent All Elite Wrestling debut during the AEW Revolution pay-per-view on March 7, 2021.
Here’s what Captain Charisma said:
“We had some discussions about how it was going to go down, and when Tony Khan and I talked, we kind of talked about it being a surprise, and having that kind of element of just showing up, and surprising everyone and doing it that way. It’s funny on the Wednesday, on Dynamite when Paul Wight made that announcement, I wasn’t signed yet.
We had talked about it, but it actually wasn’t a physically signed deal at that point in time.
There’s benefits of doing it both ways.
At the end of the day, Tony’s a promoter, and he has to promote his pay-per-view coming up, so I get why he went the direction that I did.
All I can do is trust Tony’s vision and what he wanted, and Tony is a very passionate guy about every single performer on his roster.
He cares about every single person, so he’s not going to try to put anybody in a bad spot coming in by any means. I trust his vision. I know there was a little bit about the surprise and this and that.
It wasn’t The Rock. It wasn’t Goldberg or whatever, but here’s the thing too, I don’t think it’s any secret that wrestling fans are very opinionated, and when you light a spark, it turns into a wildfire no matter.
So it doesn’t matter who showed up. There were going to be people that were disappointed or whatever.
When you make that kind of announcement, you’re giving people the option to pick who they think should be over there, who they want to be and all those sorts of things.
So at the end of the day, I don’t care because I know once I get in the ring what I’m going to do.”
