'It was a gift to get it back' - Christian Cage

The current IGWP Champion said to Cage that he still had a lot left in his career and it was a good opportunity for him to redefine his career. Cage claimed that his return to action was more of a gift. Since then, Christian has been one of the top Superstars in AEW pulling out great promos and matches.

"Jon said I should have a conversation with Tony Khan. I was like, I don’t know. And he said, Well, you’re actually an idiot if you don’t, you hold all the cards here. He said you have the ability to pick where you refinish your career. So like I said, when I got my career back after being retired for 7 years, it was a gift to get it back," said Cage in the interview.
