I guess she isn’t pleased. There are a lot of people on the AEW roster, which makes things a little more complicated. While there is a lot of talent around in the company, there is only three hours of television time a week. That does not leave room for a lot of people to be included, which is made even more complicated when AEW is bringing in even bigger stars. Some people are not going to be used and now we are hearing some complaints.

Melissa Santos, the former ring announcer for Lucha Underground and the wife of AEW’s Brian Cage, has taken to Twitter to complain about Cage’s current status in AEW. Santos mentions that Cage is a superstar and has not gotten the chance to show that so far. Cage responded and seemed to agree, though he did not say anything specifically negative about AEW. This comes as Cage has been feuding with Ricky Starks and Team Taz in recent weeks.

Is she onto something? Check out Santos’ commentary and Cage’s recent efforts in AEW:

Opinion: I’m not sure if this is going to cause a problem for Cage in AEW, but ultimately there is only so much time to go around in the company. There are a lot of big stars coming in and some wrestlers are going to be left out. That is going to make things all the more interesting when the contracts come up, as not everyone is going to be sticking around the promotion forever.

What do you think of Santos’ comments? How would you use Cage in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
