Christian Cage, who had his first match in AEW on this week’s Dynamite, has revealed what long-time tag partner Edge thought of the match.
Christian explained that Edge is actually staying with him right now and they watched the match together as it was a pre-taped show this week.
Speaking with ET Canada, Christian said:
“So he’s actually staying at my house. Yeah, because obviously Smackdown and Raw are here in Tampa so we watched it together. He was very happy for me and was very complimentary of it. And of course, we always both kind of nitpick and give each other constructive criticism and those sorts of things.
“But I think, for the most part, he felt the same way that I did. I don’t think it could have gone better for the first one back.”
Christian Cage picked up the win over Frankie Kazarian in a highly praised bout. He also spoke about his feelings on the match, saying:
“It felt great to get back in there. Honestly, it was a little surreal. I had to kind of pinch myself right before I went out there. I stepped through those ropes and I kissed the ring. And that was kind of a symbol of like taking back what I had lost seven years ago. And it was like coming home.
“As soon as I stepped foot to those ropes, it all comes back. No matter how much training you put in, nothing can replicate getting in there and doing it for real. So it was a real test and it was a test against myself and against Frankie and against all these factors of coming back after such a long layoff. But I am always my toughest critic, so I will grade myself a B-plus.”
