Hangman Page returns to singles action this upcoming Wednesday on AEW Dynamite and it happens to be with a familiar face.
All Elite Wrestling announced via Twitter that the lone cowboy will be squaring up against Ryan Nemeth on next week’s episode.

Nemeth, who is the younger brother of Dolph Ziggler, has created a resume for himself on the independent wrestling scene after working in the NXT developmental system back in it’s late Florida Championship Wrestling days and a little after when it truly turned into the black and gold brand. Since then, Nemeth spends his time wrestling and doing stand-up comedy.
This bout is coming fresh off his tag victory with The Dark Order against Chaos Project and TH2 to celebrate Brodie Lee Jr.’s birthday where post-match Hangman was confronted with the decision to join Dark Order. As Hangman said “he can’t,” a poorly timed celebration took place in anticipation of him saying, “yes,” which evidently did not happen. A despondent Page thanked them for the fun time, but noted he had bad luck working in groups before grabbing the handle of booze as he exited. Odds are this story has a ways to go before we get a potential Page aligning with Dark Order payoff.
