Multiple industry insiders are reporting that Impact’s Brian Cage has signed a deal with All Elite Wrestling. The news was originally broken by SoCalUncensored.com.
Cage was supposed to wrestle Rob Van Dam yesterday at Hard To Kill but an injury prevented him from doing too much physical stuff. Van Dam then ended up wrestling Daga instead.
The 35-year-old Cage worked for Impact between 2012 and 2014 and then returned in 2018 where he won the Impact World title. Cage was supposed to take part at the Double or Nothing Casino Battle Royale back in May but his appearance was pulled out due to some creative differences between AEW and Impact Wrestling, who opted not to have their world champion competing in a battle royal.
Cage’s wife, Mellissa Santos, refuted the online reports that her husband is now part of AEW. On Twitter, Santos wrote, “Really?? How can you confirm something that isn’t true???? I’m his wife and I can CONFIRM, he hasn’t signed on any dotted line.”
