Brian Cage just appeared on Impact Wrestling’s Pay Per View “Hard To Kill” in a losing effort to Rob Van Dam. Cage was one of the featured players for Impact since Don Callis and Scott D’Amore took over, going as far as to win the Impact World Championship.
Website SoCalUncensored broke news shortly after the match that Brian Cage has signed a multi-year deal with All Elite Wrestling.
Brian Cage has signed a multi-year deal with All Elite Wrestling SoCalUncensored.com has confirmed with multiple sources. No start date was given but we were advised “soon.” The former Impact World Champion and Lucha Underground Gift of the Gods Champion went to a no-contest with Rob Van Dam earlier tonight at Impact’s Hard to Kill pay-per-view.
Cage, who became a free agent when his contract with Impact expired, reportedly received offers from Impact to stay and an offer to go to Ring of Honor but decided to go with AEW. The Ring of Honor contract offer is said to have been for the highest dollar amount, but they do not offer the exposure that AEW currently has.
Cage has been featured on television with Lucha Underground, Impact and participated in AEW’s Casino Battle Royale. He will still wrestle his independent bookings and possibly continue to take independent dates because AEW contracts do not prohibit their wrestlers from wrestling on select independent dates.
