Professional wrestlers Matt Cardona and Brian Myers have a cool side gig in the form of a podcast where they talk about wrestling action figures and other merchandise, and they recently tweeted new limited edition Christian Cage enamel pins coming soon to shopimpact.com.
Christian is one of several wrestlers featured in the series 1 run which includes Brian Myers, Willie Mack, Deonna Purrazzo, and the Good Brothers (Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows) and each pin is limited to 125.
What’s cool about this is Christian is currently signed to AEW, but AEW and Impact Wrestling are currently in a partnership and there’s been some movement between the two companies talent wise.
Another interesting tidbit is Christian’s AEW entrance song, “Take Over,” is a remix of his TNA version he used from 2005 to 2007.
With this news we expect there to be plenty of rumors that Christian is really signed to Impact Wrestling or they’ll buy him out.
While the buy out is always an option or may be part of his contract, this feels more like nothing more than a cross promotional moment and we could see more of it in the future.

The two companies have been working well together with AEW’s Kenny Omega defeated Rich Swann at Rebellion to win the Impact World Championship, so this is the logical next step.
We’re really curious to see what’s next from the marketing department. As much as we’d love to see some action figures, these deals tend to last the length of a wrestler’s contract with a promotion.
Or in this case a collaboration between two companies?
Nearing the end?
The end of their partnership nearing its end could be one of the reasons behind the limiting of 125 of each pin, or it could just be to give us a chance at something that could be a cool collectible.
While our knowledge is limited when it comes to collecting action figures and other memorabilia like this, we’re looking forward to what The Major Wrestling Figure Podcast shares with us next.
We have to admit, this is a pretty cool thing to see and Impact Wrestling has been getting back into the action figures game step by step lately.
We’re crossing our fingers for more news to come about other special releases.
