Brian Cage has a well-documented history of injuries. Recently, the AEW monster talked about how a knee injury kept him out of a big independent match.

In the interview with the Dynamite Download Show, Cage said that the match with Murphy, now known as Buddy Matthews, as an independent wrestler, didn’t go down because of treatment he received for an ailing knee. The Machine said that he was receiving stem cells to treat a very painful knee injury.

“I got stem cells in my knee which were voluntary, and I’ve got stem cells several times, and whenever I’ve had it before, you’re always stiff and sore but it’s not like, ‘oh my god.’ This, I don’t know what the difference was or what happened, but I got it in my shoulders and my knees, and then a few hours later, my knees were killing. It was almost the top 3 most painful moments in my life. I ended up sleeping on the chair because I couldn’t get up. I had Melissa take a protein container and dump the regular protein into a ziplock bag and give me the container and I would open the lid and piss in it because I couldn’t get up. That’s how much I couldn’t walk at all, I felt like I was paralyzed.”

Brian said that he knee was feeling better in the lead-up to the scheduled match with Matthews. Unfortunately, the knee wasn’t feeling good enough for him to wrestle on. Cage wants to reschedule the match so they can deliver for the fans.

Cage also talked about a potential future dream match with Brock Lesnar. He also listed several current AEW stars he’d like to wrestle, including Pac, Kenny Omega, and even Luchasaurus and Wardlow.

“I’ll leave Kenny [Omega] out of it because that’s a given, I really, really want to work PAC,” Cage said. “I would love to work with PAC. We don’t have a lot of big men in AEW, but all the big men are good. I’m torn between Luchasaurus and Wardlow, which one I’d rather have a balls to the wall [match with]. I worked with Luchasaurus before and we killed it, he’s super athletic as well. Wardlow is underrated athletically and I feel like we have more of a similarity to it. Either one of them would be great, and then as a third one, Bryan Danielson would be amazing. And my all time dream match has always been AJ Styles, since I started wrestling.”

It seems like Brian Cage’s knee has recovered. More recently, he has joined several other AEW stars in dragging Roman Reigns on social media. You can check out his full interview below.
