The All Elite Wrestling roster is always growing, and Brian Cage made his official debut with the company back in May when he competed in the Casino Ladder Match at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view.

Cage went on to win the match, and this week he was finally able to cash in his title shot on AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, but unfortunately for Cage he wasn’t able to win the gold.

Prior to signing with AEW Brian Cage had multiple offers to consider, and he recently explained to TSN why he chose AEW over WWE.

“There were multiple factors. I think just overall, it was the cool, new thing that everybody wants to be a part of, obviously, but to be able to break through the reach I’d already done – the Ring of Honor crowd, the Impact crowd and so on – and I felt like I needed to go to a bigger, national scene like an AEW. And another big thing was AEW had the most unique, cooler [potential] matches, if you will, and all of them would be first-time ever matches, whereas everywhere else would have been repeats and not as exciting. And if I were to go to WWE, I wouldn’t have as much creative control. That, artistically speaking, was a big reason why. I’m going to go to a place where I can showcase my abilities and have the most fun, intriguing matches and I had more personal desire to go to AEW than anywhere else.”
