AEW's Jake Roberts: Vince McMahon Ruined The Cage Match

Escaping the cage to win doesn’t make much sense does it…

The cage match is one of wrestling’s greatest stipulations. Lock two heated competitors in the confines of a steel cage, and watch them beat each other to a pulp.

Cage matches have been integral to WWE, but when Vince McMahon took the reigns of the sports entertainment behemoth he changed the stipulation somewhat, and according to Jake Roberts on the DDP Snake Pit podcast, it ruined the cage match entirely:

“Vince McMahon, for all the good he did in wrestling, he ruined the cage match,” Roberts said. “When he made the cage match, the finish, you had to escape the cage. That was the whole reason you had the cage. You had the cage to keep that chickens*** in the ring with you so you could get even with him and so you could keep other people out. And Vince ruined the whole damn thing. He said first one that escapes this cage is the winner. Are you serious? That blows off all of the heat.”
