Former World Heavyweight Champion Christian Cage made his surprise arrival in All Elite Wrestling during Revolution, revealing he was the "Hall-of-Fame-worthy" star that Paul Wight teased during this week's AEW Dynamite. Christian, who was last seen competing in the 2020 Men's Royal Rumble match for WWE in January, walked down to the ring, posed for the crowd and signed the contract before revealing his official slogan — "Out. Work. Everyone."
Christian's last WWE appearance came several days after the Rumble on The Bump. At the time he was asked about his future with WWE, and he couldn't give a definitive answer.
"No decisions have been made," he said at the time. "I'm not sure at this point, it's still to be determined. We'll take it day-by-day. If that ends up being my last match, I did it on my terms and that's all I wanted."
Cage previously had to retire due to injuries in 2014, but much like his tag partner Edge he was able to rehabilitate and train his way back. He recently shared an Instagram post showing off the body transformation he underwent in half a year.
