Looks like he’s next. Titles are what ultimately matter the most in wrestling more often than not. It is a rather simple idea and something that any wrestling fan can understand. Someone has a big shiny belt and someone else wants it. This is the kind of thing that can set up a huge match in a hurry, which is what we are seeing again in what could be quite the showdown.

This week on AEW Dynamite, Christian Cage was named the new #1 ranked contender after defeating the Blade. Cage mentioned that he was in AEW to win titles and promised to be at next week’s AEW Rampage to see World Champion Kenny Omega. Earlier in the show, Omega said that he had no challenger for his title and that he was considering retiring as champion. There is no word on when the match will take place, assuming it does.

This could be a showdown. Check out the two of them on their own and together:

Christian Cage is a Man on a Mission! | AEW Dynamite, 5/19/21

Was Fenix Able to Capture the AEW World Championship? | AEW New Year's Smash Night 1, 1/6/21

What Happened When Christian Cage and Kenny Omega Came Face to Face? | AEW Dynamite

Opinion: The more I think about this, the less likely I think the match is to happen. I could see it taking place on a Dynamite or Rampage, but having the match at All Out would seem to be quite the surprise. Cage as a one off title challenger is fine, but he does not feel like a pay per view World Title challenger. Throw in the Daniel Bryan/CM Punk factors and it could go in a few different ways.

Will Cage get the title shot? Do you want him to? Let us know in the comments below.
