Brian Cage On WWE's Plans For Him Before Firing Him, Re-Naming X-Division Title

Brian Cage recently spoke with the folks from The Roman Show to promote his upcoming X-Division Championship match at the upcoming Slammiversary XVI pay-per-view in Toronto, Ontario, Canada this Sunday. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On Cody Rhodes telling him he needed a character change: “I am out there having awesome matches with Justin Gabriel, Tyson Kidd, Trent Barreta, and Dusty Rhodes pulls me to the office and goes, ‘Let me tell you something baby. You are a phenomenal worker. You got to have something else. You can’t be that. Hey Matt, what’s that guy called the Honey Badger The Wolverine yeah. But you can’t be the Wolverine because that’s a trademark, so give me something else.'”

On what WWE had planned for him before he was released: “I went back, and I was looking through my trading cards and comics, and I said, ‘I’ll be like the Dark Claw which is Batman and Wolverine. I made my attire off that, and they were going to bring me up, and then Hurricane came up and Dusty said, ‘OK, we are thinking of feuding or teaming you with Hurricane.’ So I started doing a bunch of heel promos but I got released.”

On his plans to win the X-Division Championship this Sunday and re-name the title: “He will lose the title, and I’ll change it to the Weapon X Division title. It’s a play on Wolverine, and I’ll remain supreme, until I move over to another title.”
