Over the course of his career, Christian has won twenty-two titles between WWE and TNA: he is a six-time world champion, having twice held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, the ECW World Heavyweight Championship and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship; he also won the Light Heavyweight Championship, the Hardcore Championship, the European Championship, the Intercontinental Championship (four times) and the World Tag Team Championship (nine times).
In addition to these accolades, Reso is the twenty-third wrestler in WWE history to have completed the Triple Crown and the twelfth to have reached the Grand Slam. Former WWE referee Jimmy Korderas discussed two of AEW's new signings - Christian Cage and Paul Wight.
Jimmy Korderas started with WWE in 1987 and took charge of a number of big matches throughout his career as a referee. He left WWE in 2009, after over two decades with the promotion.
Christian Cage set to make his in-ring AEW debut recently
"Little bit surprising for me.
At the same time, these are guys who have earned their stripes. I don't know what the situation is with Christian, health-wise, whether WWE was just not willing to let him go full out or whether he was completely cleared.
I don't know what the situation was with him. He's one of those guys where maybe they offered him a position as an agent because he has a great mind. You talk to anybody who's talked to him backstage and he's got a great mind, great psychology for this industry and hopefully the guys there listen to what he has to say.
Maybe WWE's plan was to get him to be an agent or producer or whatever but he wasn't ready for that. He wants to go out on his own terms and maybe that opportunity was offered to him by AEW and the same with Paul Wight, same with the Big Show.
Here's an opportunity for him... he loves the commentary stuff and was there a place for him on commentary in WWE? They could have made a spot for him but are quite set now. He's also another guy who wants to go out on his terms" - Jimmy Korderas stated.
Christian Cage made his AEW debut at the Revolution PPV, coming out and signing his contract. We later saw him on Dynamite, going face to face with AEW World Champion Kenny Omega. Christian Cage is set to square off against Frankie Kazarian in his AEW in-ring debut on next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. We will have to see whether Cage will win the match.
