Hangman Page cashes in.
As The Joker in the Casino Battle Royale, Hangman Page had the good fortune to enter the contest as lucky #21. Despite a "knee injury," Page managed outlasted the competition, earning himself a shot at the winner of Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega and the AEW World Title.
The bout came down to Hangman Page and MJF, who thought he won after a sneak elimination. However, Page held on before his feet hit the floor, clobbered MJF with the Buckshot Lariat, and eliminated The Salt of the Earth.
Other highlights from the bout:
Page was originally scheduled to face Pac at AEW Double or Nothing, but reported creative differences between Pac and AEW caused the match to fall through. Instead, Page traveled to Nottingham, UK to face Pac at Wrestle Gate Pro last weekend. The match ended in a DQ with Page being declared the winner. After the match, Pac attacked the knee of Page causing an "injury." Earlier this week, Page stated he was "not allowed" to wrestle at Double or Nothing.
