Inner Circle member, Jake Hager recently spoke with WrestlingInc.com where he discussed the differences between Hager and Jack Swagger.

“As cool as Jack Swagger was, he felt choreographed,” Hager stated. “I look at that as a 20-year-old Jake Hager. Now, Jake Hager is in his 30’s, he’s been around the world a couple of times, he’s got culture, he’s got experience. He’s just a, smarter, more well-developed human being.”

Hager also discussed how he is able to balance AEW alongside still keeping an MMA career going:


“The biggest difference so far is the rest days that I have,” Hager went on to say. “We normally train Monday through Friday, when my training partners are available, and we’d take the weekends off. Now, with AEW on Wednesday nights on TNT, we changed Wednesday’s-Thursday’s to our rest days and Friday’s-Tuesday’s as our work days. It is an exhausting grind, and I have to be really focused on getting my rest on those days off and getting the proper nutrition so I can come home and start right back up again. I can’t miss a beat because it is a short window that I have.”

Finally, Hager also spoke about who he would most like to face in the future at AEW:

“At AEW they have such a great roster. Off the top of my head, I can name ten people I want to wrestle there,” Hager went on to say. “Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, The Young Bucks, Rey Fenix, Penta. There are so many guys there that would be a fresh matchup for the Jack Swagger/Jake Hager-style. In MMA, I’m very excited about the heavyweight division. I definitely want to fight (Heavyweight Champion) Ryan Bader. I would love to fight Fedor Emelianenko in Russia, maybe we can make that happen. As for a third, can I say a politician? Chuck Schumer.”

Tony Khan Discusses The Process Of Bringing Fans Back To AEW Dynamite

Published

on

AEW was the first wrestling company to bring live fans back, and Tony Khan has discussed the process of making that happen.

Every wrestling company has handled things differently, with WWE creating the ThunderDome, while IMPACT, MLW, and ROH have continued to simply run empty arena shows. However, AEW has been allowing a limited capacity of fans into Daily’s Place each week, which has created a more familiar atmosphere to those shows.


When speaking on Rasslin With Brandon Walker, Khan explained how it all came about, admitting that he was inspired by drive-in movies as he even considered doing a drive-in wrestling show.

“Eventually, as we’ve gone on and learned more, we learned we could do outdoor shows with limited risk of transmission as long as we kept everyone split up. I wanted to bring fans back and allow fans to come to the show in a safe manner. This was inspired by drive-in movies. When I saw drive-in movies were doing it, I was thinking there had to be a way to do it. At first, I thought about doing drive-in wrestling, but it wasn’t viable to get the ring set-up and do it with cars, though I do think people have tried it and it’s a cool idea. For us, doing a live television show, sooner or later you’re going to run into logistical problems with weather and other challenges. Before any sports had done it, we were the first ones to have pod seating and giving them a chance to do socially distance viewings of the show,” he said.

Sting

Sting is coming out of retirement.

AEW has officially announced that TNT Champion Darby Allin and Sting will take on Team Taz’s Brian Cage and Ricky Starks in a tag team Street Fight. The big match will take place at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view on February 27.


This will be Sting’s first wrestling match since competing against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions in September 2015. Sting suffered a career-threatening injury during the bout, leading him to announce his retirement during his 2016 WWE Hall of Fame induction.

Whether this is a cinematic bout or not remains to be seen. However, the tag team Street Fight stipulation allows for Sting, 61, to be protected and still work at a comfortable level.

No other matches have been announced for Revolution at this time.
