Adam Copeland On Christian Cage's AEW Run: 'This Is Jay Without Any Constraints'

One month after making a shocking return at the 2021 WWE Royal Rumble, Christian Cage (Jay Reso) provided wrestling fans with another surprise, revealing that he had inked a contract with All Elite Wrestling. As the TNT Champion soon approaches the third anniversary of his AEW debut, his long-time friend Adam "Edge" Copeland lays out his assessment of Christian Cage's AEW run so far, which includes the ongoing storyline revolving around Adam Copeland, Killswitch (formerly Luchasaurus), Nick Wayne, and Christian Cage himself.

"This is Jay without any constraints," Adam Copeland told Sports Illustrated's FanNation. "He's discovering and sometimes accidentally stumbling on things that garner a reaction. He's the type of performer whose ears are always open. If he pushes a button, then just wait, he'll do it again and even better. And he's helping bring others up, too."

Since joining the company in 2021, Christian Cage has gradually grown to become a regular fixture on AEW television, simultaneously elevating his career and those of Killswitch and Nick Wayne. Most recently, Christian Cage successfully defended the TNT Championship against Adam Copeland on the December 6th episode of "AEW Dynamite," albeit with the added help of Nick Wayne's mother, Shayna.

Despite his loss, Adam Copeland is proud to see his real-life friend continuing to excel in the ring while also boosting two of AEW's rising stars. "[Killswitch], he is a talented guy," Adam Copeland said. "A guy that size, with that much talent, we've wanted to show the world what he can do. He's in a good position right now. And Nick Wayne has incredible instincts. That's from growing up in the industry, learning from his father, who was a wrestler, and watching wrestling his whole life. He hasn't disappointed yet."
