While there is the spotlight for the final run, Cage realizes that there is a lot of young talent that he can put over by delivering some huge matches. There is always that prospect of passing on what you know to the next generation, and Christian is keen on doing just that.

I am looking forward to getting in there with a lot of young guys,” Cage said, speaking to Bleacher Report“You have Darby Allin, who just had a great main event with Matt Hardy. I look at a guy like MJF who can talk the talk. He is another young guy who I think is really talented. It’s scary to think of where a guy like that might be five years from now. Sammy Guevara has got a ton of talent and a lot of that is untapped.”

Just like his best friend Edge, Christian has his own bucket list of things to do before calling it on his career for good. 

The pro-wrestling veteran understands his role in the company and will work his best to ensure that AEW’s future is secure. Every prospect needs a push against an established star to make it over the top, much like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin against Bret Hart.

Christian Cage is optimistic of the way things are going forward, and this is, of course, in reference to AEW crossing the 1 million viewership mark for the second week in a row. They overtook former weekly rivals NXT, which has not made significant progress yet. 

“Coming to a young company like AEW, it’s a whole new set of goals. For one, it’s helping the company grow. We saw this past week with the great ratings, and we want to capitalize on that and keep the momentum moving forward,” said Christian.
