Hangman Adam Page likes wrestling and cowboy sh*t and has admitted that he feels frustrated at not being able to indulge one of those passions since becoming AEW Champion.
At Full Gear, in the main event Hangman Adam Page fulfilled what seemed to be his destiny from the minute AEW was announced as a company when he captured the AEW World Championship from Kenny Omega.
Speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions Page discussed what it felt like to be crowned champion and admits he’s not entirely happy that he hasn’t been able to compete since capturing the gold:
“It’s great. It’s a little surreal, I don’t think it’ll ever sink in at this point. It’s also a little frustrating because I’ve worked so hard for so long and won this championship and I have not gotten to wrestle a match since I won it. It’s been three or four weeks and I’ve been asking for a match with Bryan Danielson since after the pay-per-view and I haven’t gotten to wrestle.”
“It’s kind of frustrating as well. I’m sure it feels that way for people in other sports. You win the Super Bowl and then you just don’t play football for a long time, which is not what I want at all, so it’s a little frustrating. Otherwise, an incredible feeling.”
“An incredible feeling to know that myself, what I put into everything that AEW started, it wasn’t rejected, it was embraced and helped me achieve something. It could’ve went the other way where people sh*t on who you are. You become so vulnerable and try something different, but it worked, so it’s an incredible feeling.”
Hangman Adam Page’s prayers will be answered at AEW Winter Is Coming when he finally gets his hands on number one contender Bryan Danielson. The American Dragon has embraced his villainous sides in recent weeks promising to kick the heads in of Page’s friends in The Dark Order.
