Jake Hager calls out Jon Jones for AEW match

Last updated

AEW star and former WWE Superstar Jake Hager recently discussed the rumoured grappling match between him and Jon Jones.

Hager had already responded to the claims on social media, saying that there was nothing in place for a contest between the two men.

Speaking with Renee Paquette and UFC’s Anthony Smith on SiriusXM, Hager called out Jones for a potential match inside of an AEW ring.

‘Well I don’t know what’s going on because I’m training, I’m ready. As far as I know, it’s on and then it got quiet on his end” Hager began.

“I don’t know if he saw my resume and was like, ’˜Ouuu, this is an Oklahoma country boy I don’t wanna wrestle with.’ Maybe he saw that I wrestled for AEW and he got a little scared” Jake continued.

“You know, everybody wants to work for AEW so maybe he wants to get a job so I’m wondering, Jon, come out of hiding. Prove that you’re still the GOAT and I’ll put in a good word with Tony [Khan] for you” Hager stated.

“You know, I work with GOATS every single day Jon. I work with the GOAT of pro wrestling Chris Jericho so I’m like a farmer of GOATS and I can also wrestle a little bit. I think he’d wanna see that” Jake Hager concluded.
