Tony Khan Names Christian Cage MVP of AEW television

Tony Khan praised Christian Cage during the AEW Double or Nothing media call, calling him the MVP of AEW television over the past year.

Despite retiring from WWE in 2014 due to injuries, Cage returned to wrestling by joining AEW in 2021. There, he has won the TNT Championship twice and is set to challenge Swerve Strickland for the AEW World Championship at AEW Double or Nothing.

“I think Swerve Strickland is a great, great champion for AEW,” Khan said. “He has really done very well for us since winning the championship. He’s been involved in some major segments, had a great first defense of the title against Claudio Castagnoli on a really important episode of TV. Then we’ve got Christian Cage, who has been, in my opinion, an MVP of AEW television over the past year. What Christian Cage has done for the company is unbelievable.”

“I absolutely believed that was what we were gonna get when we signed him, and I think it’s been proven right,” Tony Khan said. “I think Christian Cage is one of the best signings we’ve ever made in AEW. All the hype around his signing was very justified because he’s one of the greatest wrestlers in the world, and he’s done the best work of his career in AEW.”

All Elite Wrestling’s “Double or Nothing” returns to Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday, May 26, at 7 p.m. Eastern time.
