IMPACT world champion Brian Cage was the latest guest on the WINCLY podcast to talk about the formation of AEW, and gives his thoughts on WWE’s newest championship, the 24/7 title. Cage admits that he thinks the idea of IMPACT teaming with AEW is a good one since it could lead to deeper storylines and newer matchups. He also proposes a potential partnership between IMPACT and Ring of Honor.
Obviously, yeah. Essentially, everyone in the pro wrestling business is in the business together. We’re all trying to make money and WWE is obviously the global conglomerate and has the stronghold on everything. I feel like everyone who’s competing against each other and them, if everyone would work together, we would present way more possibilities as far as matches and storylines. I would love to see more partnerships going down whether it be with Impact and AEW or Impact and ROH.
On the 24/7 title:
It was really cool when they had it originally back in the Attitude Era,” stated Cage. “But honestly, no. I think it’s cool as a niche or short-term gimmick, but I don’t think they need to bring that back. It over saturates that market too than it already is as far as the hardcore and extreme stuff.
