Adam Page's Full Gear Challenge ends in a good cause.
Adam "Hangman" Page won the All Elite Wrestling Casino Battle Royale at Double Or Nothing to earn a shot at the AEW World Championship and he and Chris Jericho will clash at a later date for that title. On the road to Double Or Nothing, Page was getting his body ready for the show so that he can fit into his ring gear which was dubbed the 'Full Gear Challenge'. Adam Page auctioned off his ring gear to benefit the National Eating Disorders Association and an article was published about his auction on NEDA.com and here's an excerpt from the post:
Professional wrestling offers a unique combination of athleticism and the art of storytelling. Through the use of larger-than-life characters and sometimes relatable storylines, the audience is met with events they can connect with. For months, professional wrestler Adam Page has offered a storyline of his journey through pressures of looking perfect for a big matchup. His friends make comments that he needs to be “full gear ready” (skinnier and bulkier) for this match. With a mix of these comments and comparing his body to his opponents, he struggles with his body image, and this takes over his life. We see that he becomes obsessed with training and how he eats. Eventually, he does accept his body and regains self confidence. At the end of this storyline, he tweeted out that he recognizes that the journey to self confidence may not be as easy for those struggling and has decided to auction off his ring gear donating proceeds to benefit NEDA.
Here’s a nice little article from NEDA about the Full Gear Challenge.— HANGMAN PAGE (@theAdamPage) May 29, 2019
Auction ends tomorrow morning!
Chris Jericho earned his spot in the AEW World Title match by defeating Kenny Omega and shortly after Jericho's victory, he was laid out by former WWE Champion Jon Moxley. Moxley joined Jericho's podcast recently to chat about why he left WWE and to read one of Fightful's published articles about that podcast appearance, click here.
