Newly signed AEW star Christian Cage recently spoke to Bleacher Report. Cage discussed a number of topics during the interview, including some valuable advice he once received from WWE CEO Vince McMahon.
“One time, I was doing a promo on Raw, and I had memorized words I was going to say” Christian Cage began. “It was Edge and me, and Mick Foley was going to come out and interrupt it.”
“Midway through talking and I just went blank and couldn’t remember anything.” Cage continued. “Edge was looking at me like ‘what’s wrong with you?’ I started fumbling words. They say you can’t see the faces in the crowd, but trust me when I say I saw every face in that moment.”
“I started to panic and it wasn’t good” Christian added. “When Foley came out, he said something like ‘Did you forget your lines?’”
Christian Cage on Vince McMahon Advice
“The next day, I walk in and I saw Vince. He said ‘great stuff last night.’ I said ‘ Really? I forgot everything.’ He said ‘You’re a heel, right?. When you’re a heel, you can get away with anything. If that ever happens again, step back, take a breath and look at your partner” Cage noted.
“‘Ask him what you were talking about and go back to it. Act like these people don’t get to hear you talk until you’re ready’” Christian Cage revealed.
“It was a big lesson. From that point on, I stopped trying to memorize things” Cage concluded. “You have to go out there with your own voice and some bullet points of what you want to talk about.”
