In an unexpected twist during Wednesday's edition of "AEW Dynamite: Fyter Fest," wrestling icon Christian Cage announced he's bound for London, England, signaling a significant shift in the wrestling landscape. The night's drama unfolded after A.R.
Fox found himself pinned during a tornado tag team bout with partners Darby Allin and Nick Wayne against adversaries from the Mogul Affiliates. In a shocking move, Swerve Strickland, in collusion with Prince Nana, ousted Fox from the Mogul Affiliates faction, highlighting the unpredictability and high stakes in the world of AEW.
This expulsion was further intensified when Brian Cage, seemingly out of nowhere, unleashed a devastating Drill Claw on Fox.
Cage Steps In, Tensions Rise
Yet, hope was not entirely extinguished for the beleaguered Fox. Coming to his aid were Allin, Wayne, and the legendary Sting.
Following this unexpected rescue, Allin turned to Strickland, demanding to know who would replace Fox in the upcoming tag team coffin match slated for AEW All-In. It was then that fans witnessed the grand entrance of Christian Cage and the reigning TNT Champion, Luchasaurus.
Amid the electric atmosphere, Cage confidently declared himself as the replacement, simultaneously tossing some rather pointed comments at Wayne, evoking memories of his late father, Buddy Wayne. It’s worth noting that Fox's association with the Mogul Embassy began only in late July.
His alliance had caught the wrestling community off-guard, especially since he betrayed Allin in a singles contest against Strickland on "Dynamite." Up until that shocking twist, Fox had collaborated with Top Flight, showcasing his prowess in an array of matches spanning programs like "Dynamite," "Dark," "Dark: Elevation," and "Rampage," with a history tracing back to July 2022.
The inception of the much-anticipated tag team coffin match can be traced back to an announcement two weeks prior, a direct result of the simmering animosity between Allin and Strickland, which reached its boiling point during the 2023 Royal Rampage match. As AEW fans worldwide anticipate this epic showdown, the addition of Cage only amplifies the excitement.
