Brian Cage Says Impact Made Him An “Incredible Offer” To Stay, Set To Undergo Surgery Monday

Brian Cage released a video statement on Instagram today confirming reports that he had suffered a bicep injury prior to Impact Wrestling’s Hard To Kill pay-per-view on Jan. 12th, which ended up being his final appearance for the promotion.

In the video Cage confirmed that his contract with Impact has indeed expired, adding that they made him an “incredible offer” to re-sign. The former world champion also noted that he had received “a bunch of amazing offers from all over the place”, but despite reports claiming that has signed with All Elite Wrestling, Cage maintains that he is not officially with any group at this time.

He will be undergoing surgery to repair the torn bicep this coming Monday. While he doesn’t have a timetable yet, Cage said he has heard up to six months, but obviously hopes to come back much sooner than that. He will likely have a more accurate estimate after the surgery.

For fans in the Chicago area, Cage will still be in attendance at Warrior Wrestling 8 on Feb. 14th to participate in the VIP meet-and-greet, but due to the injury he will be forced to vacate the Warrior Championship. He personally requested the War of Attrition match to defend the title (an 8-man tag team match where the winners face off in a tag team match, and the winners of that face off to determine the champion), and is seeking a replacement.
