On the October 18th episode of AEW Dynamite, “Hangman” Adam Page faced off against Jon Moxley in the main event. The AEW Championship match between the two had been heavily promoted, with Page cutting a fiery promo last week that garnered loads of praise from his fans as one of his best promos to date.
However, the main event of AEW Dynamite came to an early and frankly scary conclusion. Jon Moxley exploded out of the corner with a monster King Kong Lariat which flipped the challenger inside out. As Moxley gathered himself the referee and the ringside doctor went to check on Page and quickly called a halt to the action as the challenger was clearly injured.
The star wasn’t shown again in the ring, and replays of the incident were also not played. As the challenger was tended to by AEW medical staff, hype packages were shown for AEW Rampage, with Page leaving on a stretcher to chants of “cowboy sh*t” from the crowd. He was taken to a local hospital for evaluation after he was checked out by the medical staff backstage.
