However, Cage’s victory seems to have affected Omega deeply as he left a rather emotional message with a bit of warning on his Twitter, saying that he felt cheated and his baggage felt lighter at the airport [indicating that his loss of two belts].

He further added that he’s putting everyone on notice and made sure that he took his loss at the very first fight at AEW Rampage personally, and will be out for revenge.

“Not a cheerful ride to the airport. Baggage is light and I feel so cheated and disrespected. You’re all on notice. I’m taking this personally.” Omega wrote.

Surely, to think Omega would let this loss slide over would be a mistake for Cage, who won the IMPACT Championship after years; however, Cage should be more careful moving forward.
