Brian Cage made a name for himself in various promotions before making his way to AEW. He also isn’t afraid of facing off against the most intimidating of opponents. It seems he got heat on him because of his wife.
Brian Cage was engaged in a feud with Team Taz, after he was betrayed by them back in July. Cage was usually prominently featured on AEW television but his wife isn’t a fan of his booking in AEW as she ranted about it on social media.
While speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Melissa Santos talked about her previous comments. Santos admitted she might have gone too far and got heat on her husband because of what she said.
I got really spicy about it. Maybe I shouldn’t have. But then he got all the heat. He didn’t even say anything. I know, I know. He got all the heat. I do feel bad about that because he loves wrestling, he loves AEW, absolutely adores Tony (Khan), loves being there and I feel like all of it came from the love of wanting him to be more involved and that’s really it.
It was just from a passionate place and because I’m all loud, loud, loud, I got him in trouble and I do feel bad for that because that wasn’t my intention, even though when I look back at the videos I’m like, ‘Damn, I should have just not been as spicy’, but damn, it’s hard. It’s hard man. I get myself in trouble. I gotta sugarcoat things a little bit.
But yeah, so hopefully I can see my husband killing it a little bit more now that, you know, hopefully some of the heat falls off because I feel like in wrestling, there’s always something new that’s happening that’s like the talk of the town and so, you know, I’m sorry babe. I didn’t mean to get you all the heat. I just miss seeing you on TV, that’s really what it is and you know, AEW’s dope. I love more wrestling on TV. I love more of my husband on TV too. That’s really what it is.”
Brian Cage has not been seen on AEW television since losing a street fight to Ricky Starks on the October 6 episode of Rampage. We will have to wait and see when Cage will return to AEW television.
