Nick Patrick reacts to Christian Cage joining AEW (Exclusive)




Former Judge Nick Patrick believes Christian Cage chose to join AEW because he is more interested in the stories of his character than personal finances.

Patrick judged for both WCW and WWE during his 30-year wrestling career. While Patrick worked for WWE from 2001 to 2008, Christian worked spells with Vince McMahon’s company from 1998 to 2005 and 2009 to 2014.

I’m talking to Dr. Chris Featherstone on Sportskeeda Wrestling Inside SKoop, Patrick explained that Christian’s return to the ring was not motivated by money:

“He is one of those guys who are more driven by passion than money, so he will always have it in him to come back. It’s just a question of how long his body will be able to hold its position. My mind tells me many times that I can do this, I can do that, but my body is like, ‘No way, Jose.’ “

Nearly seven years after he was forced to retire due to a concussion, Christian Cage returned to the WWE Royal Rumble in 2021.

Nick Patrick praised the work ethic and personality of the WWE two-time heavyweight world champion behind the scenes:

“He is one of the guys who always seems to get back on his feet because of his work ethic. When I met him, he was one of the guys who learned how to merge a new school [with old school]… more videos, but you can still tell stories with it, properly selling it at the right time when it doesn’t look like choreographic acting. He could do it very well and he had a great personality. “

Despite WWE’s interest in a permanent return, Christian decided to join AEW earlier this month. He is currently involved in a story with AEW world champion Kenny Omega.
