As expected Brian Cage has debuted. As a weekly Impact Wrestling fan I can safely say he will pushed to the top and be a future champion.

I love that he's been paired with Taz who is a far better speaker than Cage is.

This partnership really interests me to see where it goes and how Taz will explain his role be it manager or advisor or confidant.

Brian Cage has been signed since January but been injured until now, they obviously really wanted him if they were willing to pay him to stay home for the first 4 months of his deal. 

For me this is the best signing AEW have made so far, just the little I saw of his work in Impact made me a big fan of Cage. He hasn't worked for WWE either so this is a guy they can build into a homegrown star. 

I really like the pairing with Taz too, Cage isn't the best at promos and Taz is a great talker, this partnership almost has a Heyman and Brock type feel to it. 

He was booked strong in the ladder match and I wouldn't be that surprised if he wins the title from Moxley.

Cage looked impressive this week with a quick squash match win, I love his Lesnar meets Goldberg power based style in the ring, especially his vertical suplex into a piledriver finisher that looks really impressive. 

Taz as his mouthpiece is great, Taz is one of my all time favourites who was terribly underutilized in WWE, he's a great talker and I enjoyed his short promo this week, as I've said it's very much a Brock and Heyman style dynamic. Taz himself has said for a while he would always be interested in a managerial role rather than just being a announcer so Im glad he's finally getting the chance to do that. 

Cage vs Moxley at Fyter Fest should be great, really looking forward to it.

So when Cage made his debut in AEW with Taz as his manager I was excited to see where it went, however after a strong start it now feels like Cage's star has faded fast and is almost playing second fiddle to Ricky Starks. 

AEW is heel heavy right now and it may be smart to turn Cage babyface and move him away from Team Taz and book him similarly to how he Impact booked him during his main event babyface run there with his Terminator inspired gimmick. They could of course just turn all of Team Taz babyface as Cage does benefit from having a strong mouth-piece in his corner, but really I feel like a babyface who just keeps his promo work short and sweet is the right move.
