AEW hasn’t featured Brian Cage in the way that many fans thought he would. That situation came to a head recently as his wife Melissa Santos spoke her piece on the matter. Now she is clearing things up.
Melissa Santos obviously wants the best for her husband. She told Chris Van Vliet on Insight that he is legit her favorite wrestler. That is how they started talking in the first place. Now she is his biggest fan, but he’s not on television as she would like to see.
While clearing things up, Santos explained that she’s not looking for him to get a huge push, but it would still be nice to use him a lot more on AEW television.
“I’m his wife. I’m not going to be like ‘Oh I wish things were different…’ No, f*cking use him more! I love my husband, he is my favorite wrestler. That’s how we started talking, I called him my favorite at Lucha Underground. There are not many people that look like him. I want to see him more like I used to. At Lucha Underground he was used all the time, at IMPACT he was the champion. I’m not saying ‘Hey. Let’s make him the champion!’ I just want to see my husband more. He comes out on the first episode of AEW and he f*cking ripping ladders apart. He is doing like the body guy stuff and you don’t really see that anymore. You see more like the cruiserweights. For me, yes I am biased because he is my husband, I want to see more of that. I did get heat because I am spicy, I’m very straightforward.”
Santos said that she would feel bad if Brian Cage got heat because of her, because he’s not the one saying anything.
“I found an article because there were a lot of articles written about him. I got really spicy when I shouldn’t have. But then he got all the heat for that, he didn’t say anything. I do feel bad for that because he loves wrestling, loves AEW, loves Tony Khan, and loves being there. A lot of it came from the love of being involved. But because I am loud I got him in trouble, but it’s hard man.”
We’ll have to see what happens next for Brian Cage. He was a big signing for AEW at the time, but it seems that they simply haven’t utilized him. His reign as FTW Champion came to an end and now he is still waiting for his next opportunity to perform in AEW’s growing spotlight.
