It was the October 18 AEW Dynamite episode when ‘Hangman’ Adam Page went down with a concussion, suffered upon taking a Lariat from Jon Moxley in their AEW World Championship match. Page was subsequently stretchered from ringside with the match ruled in favour of Moxley.
Luckily, the one-time AEW World Champion stated that he was doing well in the aftermath of the incident. It’s believed that the prognosis could have been a lot worse, had Page fallen even slightly differently than he did.
“He Was Smiling” – Tony Khan On Adam Page
In a new interview with First Coast News, AEW CEO Tony Khan provided an update on the status of Adam Page, now two weeks on from the injury being suffered:
“He’s doing really well, I talked to him just in the past 24 hours, and also saw him not long after he was officially cleared and saw him after he came back, not long after we took him to the hospital and he got out. It was great to see him in good spirits that night. About 90 minutes after he got hurt, he was smiling and feeling pretty good. That’s about as fortunate as we could be given that he got knocked out in the match.”
Continuing, Tony Khan added how well AEW’s medical team handled the difficult situation, while also praising Jon Moxley for his handling of the injury during his post-match promo:
“I thought the doctors and the referee handled it really well. That’s what you have to do in a big fight. If one of the fighters is hurt, you need a referee that is going to come in, do the right thing, and stop the fight. The doctors took care of him, got him out of there, I thought Jon handled it well in his interview. He was very classy after and once they safely got Hangman out of there, we saw going forward it’s going to be Jon Moxley vs. MJF.”
Jon Moxley is next due to defend the AEW World Championship against MJF at AEW Full Gear on Saturday, November 19.
