Reflecting on their recent clash aired on the February 7 edition of "AEW Dynamite," which concluded in a time-limit draw, Strickland admitted, "I just got my ass whooped going 30 minutes on live television in the ring with 'Hangman' Page.

I shudder to say that...name on this show, but shout out to him. He's one of the best wrestlers in the world."

I literally have scars on my face from this man." Their confrontation continued on the latest episode of "AEW Dynamite," where Strickland and Page engaged in a verbal exchange, with Samoa Joe overseeing the proceedings. Amidst Strickland's assertion of his championship aspirations, Page interjected, drawing boos from the audience as he made his case against Strickland's deservingness.
