Hangman Adam Page Speaks About Becoming a Champion and The One Regret He Had
“It’s great, it’s a little surreal.
I don’t know that it ever will sink in at this point, you know what I mean? It’s also a little frustrating because I’ve worked so hard for so long, I’ve won this championship and I have not gotten to wrestle a match since I won it.
And it’s been three or four weeks, and I’ve been asking for a match with Bryan Danielson since, you know, the Wednesday after the Pay-Per-View. Look, I haven’t gotten to wrestle so then, it’s kind of like, frustrating as well”.
Hangman Adam Page has fought Bryan Danielson inside AEW and is currently the top AEW guy. However, he stated that he wasn’t supposed to be the top guy in AEW when he started working at AEW. “I wouldn’t even talk about, at least, my journey to the AEW World Championship as some kind of ‘grand scheme’ that was hatched on day 1 or something like that, because it never was.
At least to me, it was never that way. When AEW started, and I, you know, realized I was going to be suddenly, like, I was just the guy, like, losing all the Bullet Club multi-man matches. I was, you know, not to say 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.
Like. 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. I knew people might, they would be forgiving, they would go ‘oh yeah, okay okay,’ but I knew deep down they wouldn’t buy it.
It felt like I got off on the wrong foot and I wanted to rectify that, and I felt like the only way you (Hangman) can is to be vulnerable and to, you know what I mean, let that loss and disappointment come out”.
