“Hangman” Adam Page is the new AEW World Champion by defeating Kenny Omega at the Full gear pay-per-view. The main event of Full Gear saw Page hit 2 Buck-Shot Lariats to capture his first World Championship in AEW.
The main event had a big fight feel, complete with a special entrance for the challenger. “Hangman” Adam Page was seen riding a horse through the empty streets of Minneapolis, with videos of his previous attempts at the top title being projected in the background:
The match saw Don Callis, who accompanied Kenny Omega to the ring, interfere without, with spots including grabbing Page’s leg and frequently distracting the “Hangman.” Later in the match, the referee was knocked down, to which Callis tried to capitalise by attempting to strike Adam Page with the gold. However, Page thwarted the attempt and knocked down The Invisible Hand.
Page then hit the Dead Eye on Omega, but no referee was there to count the pin. Aubrey Edwards sprinted to the ring, but there was only a 2 count from the delayed pinfall attempt. Attempting to beat the now former champion at his own game, Page then hit a One Winged Angel onto Omega, but Kenny kicked out. In the closing moments of the match, Page hit one Buck-Shot Lariat to the back of Omega’s head. The cowboy then made his way to the other side of the ring and looked at The Young Bucks, who had also made their way to ringside. Following a mild nod from Matt Jackson, Page hit a second Buck-Shot Lariat to become the new AEW World Champion.
“Hangman” Adam Page won the opportunity at the title by being victorious in a Casino Ladder match on the anniversary episode of Dynamite. Despite being the first World Championship reign for Page, this is not his first championship in All Elite Wrestling. The new AEW Champion is a former AEW Tag Team Champion, with his partner in this reign being Kenny Omega. Their reign lasted for 228 days, before losing the championships to FTR at All Out 2020.
