After celebrating the anniversary of his return to the ring at the 2021 Royal Rumble, Christian Cage says he will end his career in AEW.
Despite having to retire due issues with a concussion in 2014, Christian Cage returned to action on January 31st 2021. As a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble match, Christian briefly teamed with his friend Edge before being eliminated by Seth Rollins.
Just one year earlier, Edge had returned in similarly shocking fashion and remained with WWE. While many expected Christian to do the same, he instead headed to AEW.
Reverting back to his Christian Cage moniker, the tag team legend made his AEW debut on March 7th at Revolution. In the weeks and months that followed, Cage racked up the wins eventually earning a shot at AEW and IMPACT World Champion Kenny Omega. On the first-ever episode of Rampage, Christian Cage defeated Omega to become IMPACT World Champion.
He then wrestled Omega again at All Out in September in an effort to become a double-champion but was ultimately unsuccessful, receiving his first loss in AEW as a result.
In celebrating his whirlwind of a 12 months on social media, Cage said that he plans to end his career in AEW.
1 yr ago today I took my career back. Man, 2021 was wild, I was involved in 3 PPV main events for 3 different companies & had some special moments. That being said, @AEW is my home for the rest of my career. So what do I want in 2022? The world, Chico, and everything in it. pic.twitter.com/dKX8SeXrpb
