AEW has a few people on their roster who are not used to their full extent. WWE is also paying close attention to the competition’s roster. A lot of fans have noticed that Brian Cage disappeared from AEW television, but it turns out that WWE could have interest.

It was previously reported that Brian Cage’s AEW contract is set to expire very soon. Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that his deal is set to end “imminently.” It seems that there were “some hiccups” in that process.

The report went on to say that AEW hoped to extend Brian Cage’s deal, when he was out of action due to injury. That being said, Cage wasn’t having that, so he “pushed back” and “was interested in exploring free agency.”

It was further noted that WWE is interested in Brian Cage’s services. They can only do something about it if he becomes a free agent.


Fightful Select has been told that WWE has maintained interest in Cage in the event he becomes a free agent, and are open to having conversations with the ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champion. That period won’t have to wait long, as we’re told AEW and Cage agreed to work together through the end of March, specifically the ROH Supercard of Honor PPV.

We’re told that some of the time that was supposed added to Cage’s contract is actually because Cage was signed while injured after leaving IMPACT Wrestling years ago. Those familiar with the situation claim that AEW offered Cage a contract extension comparable to his current deal, which hasn’t been ruled out.

It was also noted that, “Cage’s AEW contract was set to expire between late January and mid-February. We’re told that Cage has had some ‘heavy hitters’ within AEW in his corner of late. Chris Jericho specifically spoke publicly, saying he hopes that Cage re-signs with AEW, and putting over his work.”

We will have to see what happens with Brian Cage in the upcoming months. If AEW won’t put him on television, then WWE might be able to facilitate that for him. Tony Khan might not make that easy, by trying to extend Cage’s deal; and this is the same thing he did to Kenny Omega.

Do you think WWE could use Brian Cage better than AEW did? Should Brian Cage stay with AEW, or venture to WWE? Let us know what you think in the comments section!
