Mental health has continued to be a big topic in wrestling and AEW hasn't shied away from the topic on television with Eddie Kingston often referencing his mental health struggles and CM Punk bringing up Jon Moxley's decision to enter inpatient alcohol treatment.

Speaking on DAE On Demand, Page explained how AEW helps with mental health.

"It's huge," Page said when asked how much of a topic mental health is in AEW. "We get emails and have meetings and we have staff that looks after people and will reach out to people. There's a large amount of people we can use and resources for things like that. AEW is a big family when it comes to the way we treat each other and think about each other. After the coffin match, where I essentially died live on television against Darby Allin. I was not a fan of that. I came to the back and Tony Khan looked me in the eyes, shook my hand, and gave me the week off and told me to spend it with my family. Hard work gets rewarded and family time is valued by my boss. He has the best interest at heart when it comes to his talent."

Page lost the coffin match to Allin on the July 14 episode of AEW Dynamite. He didn't wrestle for AEW again until August 4 when he taped a match for AEW Dark.

Page is set to team with Sky, Junior dos Santos, Andrei Arlovski, & Dan Lambert at AEW Full Gear against The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana & Ortiz).
