Christian Cage has been taking heat lately for his promos for All Elite Wrestling (AEW). Recently, the former WWE Champion went after Jeff Hardy in a promo during AEW Dynamite. Cage was with Luchasaurus and was talking about how they have taken on a darker persona, according to Wrestling Inc. That's when Matt Hardy came out and said that Cage is the "Michael Jordan of being an a—hole." Cage then went after Matt Hardy for defending Jungle Boy, a star he recently attacked.
"You're starting to make your brother sound like the sober one," Cage told him. Cage went on to attack Matt by saying that his "screw-up, loser brother" isn't the biggest embarrassment to the family, but thinks Matt is. Jeff Hardy was charged with another DUI after being arrested on June 13. The charges against Hardy include a third DUI offense within 10 years, which is a felony in the state of Florida, as well as driving with a suspended or revoked license and a violation of restrictions placed on his driver's license. Cage's comments come after mentioning Luke Perry in a promo that goes after Jungle Boy. Outside the ring, Jungle Boy's name is Jack Perry, the son of Luke Perry who died in 2019. Here's a look at fans going after Cage for his recent promo.
One fan on YouTube wrote: "Nobody has been able to pull heat like this since MJF. I could hear the boos much louder being in that crowd! And that was the loudest of the night for sure. Keep banking on heel characters like Christian Cage to get us through."prevnext

Another person wrote: "Christian really is an instant classic. I think a lot of us forget how well he can play to a crowd and everyone in it while at the same time pulling off main event energy. Everything from the turtle neck to the realism in his insults and of course timing gets better and better."prevnext
