A big AEW star is reportedly set to be leaving the company soon and potentially be making their way over to WWE in the near future.
According to a new report/rumor from The Wrestling Blog, Brian Cage is set to leave All Elite at the end of March 2023, and WWE are extremely interested in him.
“Brian Cage’s contract is set to expire the last week of March”, the account claimed on Twitter this week.
“It has been reported that AEW tried to activate an injury clause on his contract but where not successful in activating that clause. WWE is the top candidate to sign him as soon he hits free agency,” Wrestling Blog noted.
Could Brian Cage leave AEW for WWE?
It’s worth noting that this rumor from The Wrestling Blog is just that, a rumor, as we are unable to verify whether or not the report is legitimate at this time.
Cage going to WWE would make a ton of sense, as he has the exact look that they traditionally like, plus he is an absolute freak athlete.
The fact that All Elite hasn’t used him more is fairly baffling, but a run in NXT followed by time on Triple H-led creative on the main roster could mean that he has a decent run in WWE.
