Christian Cage debuted as the big “hall of fame worthy” signing at Revolution. That segment was heavily hyped and plenty of fans threw out big names. A lot of fans were a bit surprised by Christian’s appearance considering his recent Royal Rumble return. He generated a good reaction, but there was fear that nobody would care.

While speaking to AEW Unrestricted, Christian Cage admitted that he didn’t know if anyone would even care that he signed with AEW. He doubted himself a bit on the day of the show and he called it “nerve-racking.”

The Cody Rhodes went back to talk with Christian for a bit. That conversation with the American Nightmare seemed to help Christian put things into perspective.

“I get there straight onto a bus. It’s nerve-racking,” Cage admitted. “You’re like, will anybody even care that I’m here. You had those kind of thoughts that kind of go through your head a little bit, and it was funny I never put this into perspective, but Cody came on the bus to talk to me briefly. This made me feel great.”

“He said, ‘It’s a big deal that you’re here,’ and I was like, ‘Yeah?’ And he said, ‘Put this into perspective. For guys like you and I, it was Hogan. It was Andre. It was Macho, Man. It was Ted DiBiase. All these these superstars. The majority of the talent in that locker room that is what you are to them that same way,’ and I was like, ‘Whoa, I didn’t really think about it like that.’ So that just kind of put me in a whole different headspace as far as going out there.”

“It gave me some confidence. Not that I was lacking confidence, but I was like, okay. Yeah, cool. I made the right decision, and it was neat to walk through that common area and see all the faces kind of light up when I walked through. That was very cool moment and really meant a lot to me.”

Christian is still determined to prove that he can outwork everyone in AEW. He is on a good roll right now, but there is still plenty for him to prove. We’ll have to see what is next for Christian Cage in AEW, but he signed a multi-year deal to give him plenty of time to make his mark.
