Christian Cage Came Up With AEW Faction

Christian Cage has been credited as the mastermind behind one of AEW’s newest factions.

Speaking on Talk Is Jericho, Ryan Nemeth revealed that the Wingmen group, consisting of himself, JD Drake, Peter Avalon and Cezar Bononi, was formed when Christian told Tony Khan that he thought the group would be funny.

Nemeth said:

“There was a time where I think, maybe Tony (Khan) just liked seeing me in matches but didn’t know where I fit in. ‘Okay, let’s try you tagging with Peter. Let’s try you tagging with JD.’ Then, things kind of overlapped with Peter and Cezar tagging and it was like, is this a group or not a group? It was unclear what was happening. I remember walking out on Dynamite and three people were like, ‘Have you talked to Tony yet? Go talk to him.’ I knocked on the door, he goes, ‘You’re going to be The Wingmen. Christian thought of this. He thinks you guys look kind of funny together and it could be funny. You can figure it out, right?’

Nemeth continued on to explain the group’s motives, starting with them trying to make JD Drake more ‘sexy’. Nemeth said:

“I went back, gathered everyone around, and was like, ‘Alright, we’re the Wingmen now. You know, when you go to a bar and help a guy meet a girl. We’re just that. All the time.’ It’s not ever about women, at least it hasn’t yet to be. It started out as us trying to make JD as sexy as the rest of us, which I love that we think we’re the sexy ones. I went on Amazon and ordered what I thought were sexy shirts from the early 2000s. A lot of see-through things.”

Christian Cage will be in action on next week’s (July 28) Fight For The Fallen episode of Dynamite, where he teams with Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus against Private Party and Angelico.
