Brian Cage is not a man, he’s a machine. He’s also the first-ever Warrior Wrestling champion.

Chicago was the place to be this past weekend as in addition to the historic All In, AAW: Professional Wrestling Redefined and Warrior Wrestling both ran shows in the Windy City. The Swolverine took part in all three. And while Cage’s record over the weekend was just 1-2, having lost in AAW and at the All In Zero Hour: Over Budget Battle Royal, Cage won the match that counted the most.

Alongside seven other huge names in wrestling: Rey Mysterio, Austin Aries, Rich Swann, Sammy Guevara, Pentagon Jr., Jeff Cobb and Rey Fenix, Cage took part in Warrior Wrestling’s absolutely stacked War of Attrition match to crown its first-ever champion. This was just the second overall show for the promotion, which debuted this past May.

At the end of the night, Cage stood tall, newly-won Warrior Wrestling Championship in one hand, IMPACT Wrestling X-Division Championship in the other.

For Cage, who is the midst of his 13th year as a professional wrestler, this was the 23rd title of his career, fourth of which he currently holds. In addition to both WW and IMPACT, Cage is a two-way champion in WrestleCircus holding both the Sideshow and Ringmaster titles.

Now the face of the self-proclaimed Weapon X-Division in IMPACT, Brian Cage is someone who is the true definition of an independent wrestler in 2018 in that you will see him everywhere and anywhere. In this year alone, Cage has worked 74 matches for 24 different promotions spanning six different countries. These include Lucha Underground, House of Hardcore, IMPACT, Bar Wrestling, World Series Wrestling, The Crash, Lucha Libre AAA, Beyond, AAW, PCW Ultra, DEFY, Fight Club: PRO, Revolution Pro and more.

Despite being a former WWE developmental wrestler, Brian Cage is not defined by those three letters. In fact, like so many of the best wrestlers in the industry today, of which Cage is one of, he’s made his name his own way. A rising star since 2015, Cage is now one of the top independent wrestlers on the circuit. He’s also garnered huge respect among his peers for his work in the intergender wrestling scene, of which he is one of the top male performers.

Brian Cage is willing to get in the ring with anybody, no matter the gender, and that’s part of the reason that makes him such a top wrestler in 2018. Now, with four titles to his name and two televised wrestling shows a week, Cage has the gold and the national exposure to back up that claim.
