The time when Christian Cage pitched the idea of a new Faction

Sitting on AEW Unrestricted, AEW superstar Peter Avalon talked about the time when he got injured and when he can be seen in action again.

He also talked about the time when Christian Cage pitched in an idea of a new Faction in AEW called – Wingmen group, comprising Peter Avalon, Ryan Nemeth, JD Drake, and Cezar Bononi.

“I think it’s just an idea that when people see something next to each other, it just kind of works. The idea for The Wingmen was Christian’s idea… think he said to put the four of us together, and Tony (Khan) liked it. I was with Cezar already as Pretty Picture and then Nemeth and Drake were together. I had hurt myself… I’m still out with an injury.

“So that had taken me off TV for a little bit. I’m not sure when the decision was made to put us together. I just kinda got filled in and then when I came back, I’m like, ‘Here I am boys, let’s play’.” Avalon concluded.
