• Brian Cage Comments On Being Pi$$ed After WWE Release
During a recent appearance on Pancakes and Powerslams Show, Lucha Underground & Impact Wrestling star Brian Cage revealed the reason behind his release from WWE and why it pi$$ed him so much.
Below is what Brian said:
“I had a groin injury, and was put into this squash match that lasted about 3 minutes. During the match, I was supposed to get spot where I was going to get a boot, but I couldn’t race to the boot because my groin was torn and so he threw the boot like 12 feet away, and you were wondering what he was doing,” said Cage. “Despite having awesome matches with TJ Wilson, none of that mattered, it was only that spot where they felt that I didn’t want to do that spot, so I was really upset about it.
I ended up on Tough Enough, and when we ended up in a town in Fresno, I met with John Laurinaitis and asked him how the match went, he said it went great. He said that let’s just get through WrestleMania because there was a month left until WrestleMania, and I was okay with that. I thought to myself why he would lie to me. Why would he bring me down, so I was confident about it. WrestleMania came and went but I never heard back from them.
I called him and he said to me, ‘Nevermind, we are going to release you.’ I asked what he meant by that and he said that they are no longer interested in me. I was so pi$$ed; I said that it was okay, thank you for responding and doing business with him. Through all the ups and downs from being signed, to being released, to Tough Enough, I said, enough of this. I don’t care about that anymore. I don’t care if I don’t go back now. My life is substantially better, both personally and professionally after my release.”
