At All In, he teamed up with Swerve Strickland in a tag team coffin match against Darby Allin and Sting, which the latter won. The next week, at All Out, he helped Luchasauraus retain the gold against Allin. On the September 23 episode of Collision, the champion defended the gold against Allin and Cage in a triple threat match, which Cage won after Luchasaurus allowed him to get the pinfall.

After the match, Cage, Luchasaurs, and Nick Wayne laid out an attack on Darby Allin and Sting, who were saved by a debuting Adam Copeland.

He then embraced the chaos, involving Shayna in his group and accepting a brutal No DQ match against Copeland at World's End. Cage lost the title, but in a shocking twist, he claimed Killswitch's title shot and defeated Copeland to become a two-time champion. His reign continues with a successful defense against Daniel Garcia at AEW Revolution in March 2024.
