Hangman Page would not imagine him changing into AEW World Champion was a plan from day one.
This week, Hangman Page was the newest visitor on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette to debate all issues AEW. When speaking about his huge championship win over Kenny Omega at Full Gear, Page did not imagine there was a grand scheme in place when the corporate began for him to grow to be champion.
“I wouldn’t even talk about, at least with my journey to the AEW World Championship as like some grand scheme that was hatched on day one or something like that because it never was, at least to me, it was never that way,” Hangman Page stated. “When AEW started, I was just a guy that was losing all the Bullet Club multi-man matches. I don’t want to say I was a nobody, but I certainly wasn’t like the main event guy who was suddenly going to be main eventing the first ever title match in AEW. I knew people wouldn’t buy it, and it didn’t matter what I said, it didn’t matter what I did in the time between. It was too fast. It was too soon.”
Hangman Page’s susceptible character led to the assist of the AEW fanbase
Despite all that, Hangman Page stayed the course. He remained true to himself on AEW Dynamite, exhibiting a stage of vulnerability all through storylines with The Elite and The Dark Order, which led to followers totally embracing him on his course to grow to be AEW World Champion.
“I knew people would be forgiving, but I knew deep down they wouldn’t buy it,” Hangman Page continued. “It felt like I got off on the wrong foot and I wanted to rectify that. I felt like the only way you can is to be vulnerable and to let that loss and disappointment come out over a long time. Every week we would get to TV and it wasn’t like some grand scheme on how we get Adam Page winning the world title. I just would think, how do I feel about this? What would I feel about this, and let’s do that this week.”
Hangman Page will defend the AEW World Championship this week in opposition to Bryan Danielson on the Winter is Coming particular.
