The surprise debut of Christian Cage at AEW Revolution was one of the most anticipated and most discussed wrestling debuts in recent years.
On the March 3rd edition of AEW Dynamite fellow new signee Paul Wight, formerly known as the Big Show, teased that a “hall of fame worthy talent” was heading to AEW to sign with the company at Revolution.
This announcement sent the rumour mill into overdrive, with speculation and hype levels at an all time high, right up until the moment that Cage walked through the curtain.
However, due to way that his surprise debuted was promoted and teased leading up to the event, some fans expressed disappointment when Cage was revealed as the mystery debutant. While former WCW President Eric Bischoff also expressed disappointment on Christian’s behalf for how the debut was handled.
In a new interview with the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, Christian Cage has now responded to fans who were critical or let down at Revolution.
“When you make that kind of announcement, it doesn’t matter who it is, there’s going to be people with an opinion and they’re going to pick who they think it should be or who they want it be, and if it’s not who they want it to be, they’re going to be upset. It doesn’t matter who it is. That’s fine. That’s their choice and it’s pretty obvious that social media, especially wrestling fans, are very fickle. A lot of times, that’s just the way it goes. The same people saying if I went somewhere else, they’d be saying, ‘Oh, he’s not being used right.’ It is what it is. You take it with a grain of salt and move on,”
Following his debut at Revolution, Cage crossed paths with AEW World Champion Kenny Omega on the following episode of Dynamite, before saying he was in AEW to “out work everyone” during an interview at Dynamite St Patrick’s Day Slam.
