During Impact Wrestling’s Hard To Kill pay-per-view, Brian Cage competed in a short match. He was apparently injured and required bicep surgery.
Brian Cage took to Instagram and revealed his current situation. He has in fact, not signed with any company. He will be having surgery on Monday in order to repair his bicep.
He was apparently considering “a few other companies,” but he will not be making any decision until he has his surgery.
“I know there’s been a lot of speculation on what’s going on with me, where I’m going. Rumors that I signed here, that I signed there, all kinds of stuff. I haven’t answered much and I’ve been keeping to myself about it because, yeah, my contract did come to an end with IMPACT Wrestling. They did make me an offer to stay, as did multiple other companies. And while I was mulling all that over, unfortunately, I tore my bicep. I was trying to stay positive about it, and it was looking like I was going to need surgery […] if it’s required but not necessary, and I didn’t want to say anything until I knew what was going on.”
“So as of now, I am set to get surgery this Monday. I am not technically with any group right now at all. I did like I said have a bunch of amazing offers from all over the place and I’m just hoping they’re still there as soon as I heal up. As far as that goes, healing up, I wish I had an ideal time frame. Some people are saying it could take up to six months to recover. I’m a machine so I’m destined to do it faster than that and I know a lot of top tier athletes have done it pretty quick, and that’s almost my goal now too, try to be optimistic and looking at positives.”
It is likely we will not know what he will be doing next for six months.
