Brian Cage On Why He's Chosen Impact Wrestling As His Home & Headlining Homecoming
Cage is someone who has carved a career outside of WWE. Outside of a cup of coffee in WWE developmental, he's spent most of the last decade either with TNA/Impact or competing on the indie circuit.
Cage talked about why he chose Impact as his home and if he had opportunities to go elsewhere.
"Unfortunately, while everyone's singing my praises, no one has given me the opportunity… [Lucha] Underground definitely got me on the map and Impact offered me a deal and led the way. They gave me the ball and gave me an opportunity and I took it and ran with it," said Cage.
"Hats off to them and I'm trying to live up to my end of the bargain. So far, so good. I've enjoyed my time there and looking forward to what this year has to bring and hopefully start it off as world champion."
Already a former X-Division champion, Cage can become the Impact World Champion tonight at Impact Wrestling Homecoming. There, he will face off with current champion Johnny Impact who plans on having a couple of his Survivor castmates sitting ringside.
"He can have his Survivor buddies in the crowd," stated Cage. "I don't think that's going to affect me or give him any advantage. It didn't help him win Survivor, so why would it help him win the match?
