“I signed a multi-year deal with AEW. I am committed to getting through that and then we’ll see where I’m at,” said Cage, speaking to Bleacher Report“I haven’t put an exact date on it yet, but I know I am closer to the end than the beginning. In a way, my body has been preserved for the past seven years.”

Christian isn’t holding the future to the present and wishes to live in the moment rather than plan on something that may not be there for long. Realizing he has a new lease on his career, he wants to take it one step at a time. 

“I feel great in the ring so we will see what happens. Getting this back is a huge gift, and I won’t take it for granted any time I step through these ropes. I am taking it one step at a time and am thankful for every moment I get,” Cage concluded.

Christian’s best friend Edge also made a miraculous comeback last year when he returned at Royal Rumble, much to the delight of fans. He made a second comeback earlier this year to win the same event.

Edge has expressed his desire to work on a full-time basis and promises not to be ‘that’ part-timer. Christian Cage showed the same attitude when asked about the frequency of his work.

“I’ll be wrestling on a regular basis,” he confirmed, and we can expect a lot more from ‘Captain Charisma’, who is certainly going to make the most of what many believe is his final run.
