Cage then revealed that it was WWE Chairman Vince McMahon who thought the moment was great because Cage was a heel at the time. He said:
“The next day, I walk in and I saw Vince. He said ‘Great stuff last night.’ I said ‘ Really? I forgot everything.’ He said ‘You’re a heel, right?. When you’re a heel, you can get away with anything. If that ever happens again, step back, take a breath and look at your partner. Ask him what you were talking about and go back to it. Act like these people don’t get to hear you talk until you’re ready.’
“It was a big lesson. From that point on, I stopped trying to memorize things. You have to go out there with your own voice and some bullet points of what you want to talk about.”
Christian Cage recently made his surprising debut in AEW and made a bright start with the win on Dynamite as he defeated his old rival Frankie Kazarian. He has also faced Powerhouse Hobbs.
