Christian Cage wrestled Kenny Omega twice in 2021. The wrestlers squared off on the first ever episode of Rampage for the Impact World Championship with Cage emerging as the new champ. Omega returned the favor at All Out with the AEW World Championship on the line. The Cleaner successfully defended his belt on that occasion.
Kenny eventually dropped the AEW title to Hangman Adam Page at Full Gear. He then took a break from wrestling as he required surgery to deal with some nagging injuries. Cage has since aligned himself with Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus.
Christian says he still has unfinished business with Kenny Omega. Cage recently spoke with ET Canada. The former Impact World Champion said he would love to have a rubber match to settle the score once and for all.
“For me, it’s one of those things where I had heard the buzz about Kenny for years, but I’d never really seen a full match of his until he was really kind of on top in New Japan [Pro Wrestling]. And when I watched his matches at that point, I was thinking, ‘Damn, if I could have gotten the ring with this guy, we could have done some special stuff.’ It was what-ifs, you know, like dream match type stuff.
To be actually able to get in there and have a couple of matches with him. We had the match in the first episode of ‘Rampage’ where I beat him for the Impact title. Hey, we’re one-on-one we still have to have that the rubber match here at some point down the line. It was huge. To be able to headline, to this point, the biggest pay-per-view that AEW has ever put on it is, it’s pretty special. It’s not lost on me that opportunity that I had to main event that pay-per-view. It’s pretty big.”
Time will tell if Christian Cage and Kenny Omega will square off again. There is no schedule for Omega’s return to AEW. Christian will be waiting for him if he’s interested in making their rivalry a trifecta.
