The special Tuesday night edition of AEW Dynamite came to a shocking and unfortunate after Adam Page suffered an injury in the main event against Jon Moxley.
The injury came with almost ten minutes of the show remaining and in the midst of a stunningly hard-fought AEW World Championship match. Moxley had been bleeding heavily from before the opening bell even sounded and that set the tone for the entire contest.
As the two men brawled Moxley launched himself at Page hitting a thunderous King Kong Lariat which spun the challenger inside out. As Moxley collected himself the referee and doctor quickly checked on Page and immediately ended the match.
With Hangman Adam Page being tended to by medics and stretchered from ringside a number of promo packages for Rampage were played, with no footage of the ring or replays being shown. With Page on his way to the back Moxley wished him well before calling out MJF.
