This past week on AEW Dynamite, Paul Wight (f.k.a The Big Show) made his first appearance on AEW programming. He will be doing commentary for AEW Elevation, but also came into the company with an exclusive scoop. There will be a huge Hall of Fame level signing, and it’ll be made clear at AEW Revolution.
AEW owner Tony Khan doubled down on this, mentioning that it will be a multi-year contract, and that the wrestler in question is one of his favorites of all time. Wight added earlier in the night that no one here can outwork them. There was a ton of speculation on the road to Revolution, but now we find out who this is exactly. It certainly wasn’t Ethan Page, who made his debut in the ladder match. He’s great, but not Hall Of Fame worthy.
Christian Cage Joins All Elite Wrestling
Justin Roberts would call them to the podium, and we get a ten count. It’s Christian Cage! He made his return to the ring from a career ending injury at WWE’s Royal Rumble earlier this year, making the final four. It seemed like he was going to rekindle his old tag team with Edge, but instead shocks the world by signing with AEW!
This is a wrestler who can do it all. He’s held the NWA Heavyweight Championship, WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and countless other championships along the way. Christian is able to outwork everyone truly, and he’s here in AEW to change the game. We got a taste of what he can do in the Royal Rumble. He’s in the best shape of his career, and now might get to add to AEW World Championship to his list.
This is better than options like Brock Lesnar who doesn’t work full time, Kurt Angle who is broken down, and Rob Van Dam who is past his prime. Christian Cage has a lot left in the tank, and is ready to show that over the next few years.
