Willie Mack To Debut On AEW Soon After Successful Dark Match
On the January 11 episode of AEW Dark: Elevation, Brian Cage defeated Willie Mack, and now the former Impact Wrestling star is slated to make his AEW TV debut as a result of his effort in the match.
Fans highly praised the match after the broadcast. Mack, who departed from Impact in May 2022, wrestled Cage on Wednesday night after Dynamite for Friday’s Rampage episode that will air on TNT.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted AEW President Tony Khan liked the match so much on Dark that he wanted to do it on television.
“Brian Cage beat Willie Mack, so the deal here is that they had a match on one of the streaming shows this week that was really good apparently. Tony wanted to do it again, this time on television and also because Brian Cage is wrestling Bryan Danielson (next week on Dynamite). Brian Cage getting a win on Rampage to build that up makes all the sense in the world. Brian Cage won with, I believe, Weapon X," Meltzer stated
