Tony Khan confirms when Hangman Page will cash in his ‘chip’ and get his title match with Kenny Omega.
AEW President Tony Khan appeared on ‘My Mom’s Basement’ with Barstool Sports’ Robbie Fox and during the interview, Khan appeared to have confirmed that AEW World Champion Kenny Omega will defend his title at Full Gear against Adam ‘Hangman’ Page.
Hangman Page returned to action and won the Casino Ladder Match on this past Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite, which earned him a future AEW World Championship opportunity. The date of his title shot remained unconfirmed, but now it looks like Page and Omega will meet at Full Gear for the second consecutive year.
“I’m sure you were a fan of the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament and last year, it culminated in Kenny [Omega] versus Hangman [Adam Page], which is very fitting because now as we go into Full Gear, this year we’re back, but Kenny’s the world champion and he’s facing Hangman. As we saw last year, Kenny won the eliminator tournament last year and he ended up winning the title from Jon Moxley. Well, now we have this huge eliminator tournament coming up. I’m really excited about it, and we’ve got have announcements coming up. I’ll have the full bracket this weekend on TNT on Dynamite.”
AEW Full Gear takes place on Saturday, November 13 from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
