Hangman Page's ring name was inspired by one of rock and roll's most legendary figures.
Speaking with Virginia Tech, the AEW World Champion (real name Stephen Woltz) shared who and what inspired his in-ring name.
"I was trying to come up with a fake wrestling name when I was younger and just mashed together a bunch of names. I ended up with Adam, the first name of my ACW foe and real-life best friend, and Page from Jimmy Page, guitarist of Led Zeppelin with whom I was obsessed as a teenager. Hangman came a bit later when New Japan told me that would be my name to fill the role of then-departing Luke Gallows," Page said.
Page expanded on Doc Gallows' influence on his name during an appearance on AEW Unrestricted. You can click here to learn more.
