AEW star Jake Hager is expected to grapple with former UFC champion Jon Jones. There don’t seem to be many updates so far with Hager waiting for an update.
The AEW Man recently spoke on ‘Throw down with Renee and Miesha‘where he provided an update on the grappling match against Jon Jones. Jake Hager also explains how he discovered the grappling match on the table.
“I was having dinner one night and got a call from my head coach, Josh Rafferty. He said, ‘I have a great situation for you. You should just say yes before I tell you what it is. ‘ I was like, ok, I love Josh, he’s a man, so I said, ‘Yes.’ He said to me and I said, ‘Yes, let’s make it happen.’ As far as I know, we’ve been waiting from then on to conduct negotiations and finalize things. He jumped the gun a bit and made announcements on Twitter when we didn’t have anything signed. I know my reaction is a bit harsh, but you have to say my name correctly, and you have to endorse my company if you want to work with me. ”
Jake Hager isn’t sure what to keep with Jon Jones. He thought maybe he looked through his AEW resume or even his wrestling take note.
“I don’t know what’s going on because I’m training. I am ready. As far as I know, it was working, and then it went silent on his end. I don’t know if he looked at my resume and said, ‘Oh, this is a guy from Oklahoma. I don’t want to wrestle with him. ‘ Maybe he saw me wrestling for AEW and he got a little scared. Everyone wants to work for AEW, so maybe he wants to get a job. So I wondered, ‘Jon, get out of hiding. Prove that you’re still a ENJOY and I’ll say well to Tony (Khan) for you. ‘”
Jake Hager taking on Jon Jones will be interesting. The AEW star is sure to have a competitive bout with the former UFC champion.
