Kenny Omega was in buoyant mood after The Elite reunited with Hangman Adam Page on the May 17th episode of Dynamite.
Page and Omega had been close friends and tag team partners but that relationship eventually fell apart. Shortly after the pair lost the AEW World Tag team Titles at All Out in 2020, Omega expressed his desire to return to singles competition. This saw him defeat Page to become the number-one contender for the World Championship.
While Omega went on to win the gold, Page struggled with his identity before clawing his way back to the main event picture, defeating Omega to win the World Championship at Full Gear in 2021.
Even after Omega returned to AEW following a lengthy absence after that defeat, there was no reconciliation until now.
On the May 17th episode of Dynamite, Page came to the aid of The Young Bucks and Omega as their rivalry with the Blackpool Combat Club continued to escalate. Omega had been enduring something of a crisis of his own after Don Callis turned his back on him a week earlier.
After Dynamite went off the air, Omega was in a celebratory mood, commenting that the reunion was proof that enemies can unite for the greater good.
“I saw a sign out there in the crowd. ‘Where’s Hangman?’ I saw another sign in the crowd. ‘Who can you trust, Kenny?’ I think we found Hangman, and I also think I found who I can trust. There’s a lot to celebrate today. You brought up a new show coming, AEW Collision. That’s exciting news.
That all pales in comparison to something more near and dear to my heart, and that’s catching up with someone that I thought I’d maybe never be able to be in the same room with again. If there’s one thing that this proves, Hangman, it’s that bitter enemies, bitter rivals, men that once hated one another, can sit in a room, can sit in a ring, and hash it out for the greater good. So call me old-fashioned, if you will, but to me, that sounds like a cause for a celebration,”

Kenny Omega And The Elite Heading For Anarchy In The Arena
Following Omega’s speech Page tried to offer his friend a beer, something the Best Bout Machine jokingly had to decline as he doesn’t drink.
It has been announced that Omega, Page, and The Young Bucks will be in action at Double or Nothing when they take on the Blackpool Combat Club in an Anarchy in the Arena match.
