Christian Cage Wants AEW Rubber Match With Kenny Omega

Make it a trilogy

Since signing with All Elite Wrestling in early 2021, Christian Cage has cemented himself as one of the promotion's top stars and he clashed with Kenny Omega in two world title matches back in August. Captain Charisma won their first match for the IMPACT World Title on the first episode of Rampage, but Christian would fall short in their AEW World Championship match at the All Out pay-per-view in September, succumbing to an Avalanche One-Winged Angel. 

This leaves Omega and Cage tied at one win apiece and Christian revealed to Shakiel Mahjouri of ET Canada that he wants to face The Best Bout Machine in a rubber match at some point in the future.

Speaking about their feud, Chrisitan noted: "For me, it's one of those things where I had heard the buzz about Kenny for years, but I'd never really seen a full match of his until he was really kind of on top in New Japan [Pro-Wrestling]. And when I watched his matches at that point, I was thinking, 'Damn, if I could have gotten the ring with this guy, we could have done some special stuff.' It was what-ifs, you know, like dream match type stuff.

"To be actually able to get in there and have a couple of matches with him. We had the match in the first episode of Rampage where I beat him for the IMPACT Title. Hey, we're one-on-one we still have to have that the rubber match here at some point down the line. It was huge. To be able to headline, to this point, the biggest pay-per-view that AEW has ever put on it is, it's pretty special. It's not lost on me that opportunity that I had to main event that pay-per-view. It's pretty big."

Cage might be waiting a little while for a potential third match, though, as Omega is currently out of action while he recovers from several injuries.
