Colton Cage speaks for himself
The "Casanova" opens up on The Hollywood Clique, Young Rock and missed opportunities
Colton Cage’s career in Memphis Wrestling has seen its share of ups and downs. The rising star and former Trios Champion was until recently a member of The Hollywood Clique, a stable of talent managed by the infamous Jimmy Blaylock. However, that relationship has clearly soured in past weeks, as Blaylock and Cage’s tag partner Van Viciouss both blamed him for a string of disappointing losses.
The situation culminated in a match between Cage and Viciouss in episode 106, where the members of The Hollywood Clique finally - and, brutally - lashed out against their onetime friend.
Colton Cage spoke to Memphis Wrestling Plus about the situation with The Hollywood Clique, appearing on NBC’s Young Rock, and more.
Memphis Wrestling Plus: Let's start at the beginning. How did you join the Hollywood Clique, originally?
Colton Cage: I joined the Clique when I was about a year into my tenure at Memphis Wrestling. I had tasted a bit of success with the company being a former Cobra Cup finalist and Trios Champion. Jimmy came along and promised me everything I wanted at the time - championship opportunities, high profile matches, the works. “Hollywood” is very good at telling you what you want to hear.
Were you shocked at how quickly the relationship seemed to deteriorate as of late?
