Hangman Adam Page Reportedly Not Challenging For AEW Title At All Out

Hangman Adam Page

Hangman Adam Page is reportedly out of contention to fight for the AEW World Championship at All Out with the cowboy seemingly figured in for that spot previously.

At AEW Fight For The Fallen Hangman Adam Page opened the show with The Dark Order in what is one of the most iconic entrances in company history. Donning the colours of his friend’s group Page looked to solidify his place as the number one contender to Kenny Omega’s AEW World Title. In the process, he also hoped to secure The Dark Order a shot at the AEW World Tag Team Championships.

Page teamed with John Silver, Alex Reynolds, Stu Grayson, and Evil Uno to face the all-star Elite Squad in ten-man tag team action. Should Page and The Dark Order win they’d get the title shots, if not then Page’s title aspirations would walk into the sunset for now.

With the fans in Charlotte, North Carolina firmly behind Page, a hush fell over the crowd when Kenny Omega managed to put his former tag team partner away with the One Winged Angel to win the match and dash Page’s dreams once again.

Now Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has reported in his latest newsletter that Page was figured into the title picture for the All Out show in September but those plans appear to have changed.

Meltzer wrote:

“Adam Page is not getting the main event for All Out with Kenny Omega. At one point it was the plan but plans change. The ten-man tag was designed to shock people when they veered off that match, but one would think they will be going to it later.”

Meltzer then goes on to discuss possible opponents for Omega including Christian Cage and Eddie Kingston. Cage has been touted for a title shot of some kind in recent weeks as he remains undefeated in AEW. Kingston has a long-standing rivalry with Omega and The Elite dating back to his friend Jon Moxley’s own issues with the group.
