Christian Cage comments on a booking decision from his time in WWE that “bothered” him

Former AEW TNT Champion Christian Cage did an interview with Chris Van Vliet and discussed the end of his first run with WWE in 2005. Christian brought up how he received a positive crowd reaction during a match against Batista and there was no follow-up from the company…

“After we came back, he [Bastista] said ‘What are they doing with you man? They have to do something’ and I was like ‘I don’t know.’ And then after that…the triple threat thing happened with myself and [John] Cena and [Chris] Jericho. When they inserted Chris into that to kind of…maybe they didn’t see me as a big enough star at the time to be able to carry that…that bothered me.

I was like ‘You’re not even giving me the chance to prove that I can do this? You’re just going to add somebody else in there?’ So that to me was kind of the writing on the wall. I was like ‘Nothing is going to change unless I change it myself.'” (quote courtesy of
