Frankie Kazarian has showered high praise on Christian Cage, who made his debut at AEW Revolution 2021. Captain Charisma's debut for Tony Khan's promotion was teased by Paul Wight on the final AEW Dynamite episode before the PPV.
During an appearance on The Week in Wrestling, Kazarian said Christian Cage is the most underrated performer in the history of professional wrestling. He further said Christian Cage has the highest in-ring IQ among all the wrestlers he has competed against.
"Christian Cage, maybe in the entire history of pro wrestling, is the most underrated guy to ever do it. Maybe the highest wrestling IQ I've ever been around." (H/T - Fightful)
Kazarian also revealed that it feels surreal to be facing Christian Cage in his comeback match in AEW. Though he added that it was an honor to square off against Captain Charisma, he was quick to say that he couldn't wait to defeat him.
"If you had told me a month and a half ago that I would have the chance to wrestle Christian Cage again, it just wasn't in the cards. The fact that it's happening is still surreal. I'm looking forward to the match. It's a huge honor to be his first opponent in seven years and I can't wait to beat him." (H/T - Fightful)
