Hangman Adam Page is set to compete in his second pay-per-view singles match of the year at the inaugural AEW WrestleDream next month in a first-time-ever match-up against a former NXT star! Page has competed at all five AEW pay-per-views of 2023 so far and yet only one of those has been a singles match: His Texas Deathmatch with Jon Moxley at Revolution this past February where Page came out the victor.
Since then, Page has competed in several multi-man matches across the four other AEW pay-per-views that have taken place this year. Page was one of four members of The Elite to lose to The Blackpool Combat Club in Anarchy In The Arena at Double or Nothing but equaled the score with a victory in a 10-man tag team match at Forbidden Door. Page went on to suffer another tag team loss at All In: London to Bullet Club Gold & Konosuke Takeshita before winning the Over The Budget Charity Battle Royal on All Out’s Zero Hour one week later.
With a 3-2 win/loss record on pay-per-view this year, the former AEW World Champion is now looking to maintain his momentum in his upcoming singles clash at AEW WrestleDream on October 1st. During last night’s Dynamite, Page defeated Brian Cage of Mogul Embassy, leading the group’s leader Swerve Strickland to issue a challenge to Hangman for a match at WrestleDream.
Before Page could give his answer, he was ambushed by Cage from behind – leading to a beatdown from Cage, Swerve and their mouthpiece Prince Nana. However, Page’s long-time Elite allies The Young Bucks made the save and chased Swerve’s group away. Swerve and Hangman shared a staredown as the announcers revealed that the two will clash in Seattle on October 1st, which will mark the first time they have ever faced off in a singles match.
The two’s rivalry stems from a confrontation on last week’s episode of Dynamite where Swerve confronted Hangman following his Battle Royal victory at All Out, which ended in Mogul Embassy laying Page out. This is the second match to be officially confirmed for AEW WrestleDream after Bryan Danielson versus Zack Sabre Jr was announced for the event this past Sunday.
