Adam Page Excited To Let His Hair Down On AEW House Shows
“Hangman” Adam Page has shared his excitement at AEW adding house shows, stating their importance in developing talent.
Over recent months AEW has been refereeing to many of their talents as home-grown stars, developing in the company.
During the recent match between Anna Jay and Julia Hart, AEW commentators Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone highlighted how the young competitors were AEW originals.
Additionally taking pops at WWE with The Jericho Appreciation Society calling themselves ‘sports entertainers’, and the creation of The Outcasts, a faction of three former WWE Superstars.
AEW announced their first-ever UK event this August, taking place at Wembley Stadium, home of the legendary Bret Hart v British Bulldog SummerSlam 1992 match.
Alongside this, a new Saturday night event is set to launch, with the prospect of CM Punk returning to bring in a global audience.
But as AEW have realized, it is crucial that they establish their own talent, with MJF, Jungle Boy, and Anna Jay, all becoming household names.
Former AEW Champion “Hangman” Adam Page is delighted that AEW has also announced plans for house shows, which are non-televised events, as these will give talent the opportunity to further develop their skills.
Page appeared on WXFR to discuss the importance of house shows, and how the AEW locker room should be excited at the opportunities the shows will create.
“They’re a good opportunity for younger guys to learn. They’re a good opportunity for guys like me to let our hair down, have fun, not worry about the constraints of television. So I’m really excited about that. It’s a good opportunity to visit somewhere like Roanoke, like Salem. Maybe it’s a test and if it does really well, maybe we come back with TV the next time.”
Page is currently battling with Jon Moxley and the members of Blackpool Combat Club, and will be looking to exact revenge after being attacked with a screwdriver.
He is not alone in the fight though, as Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks managed to gain the upper hand on Moxley last week.
Omega’s AEW future has been subject to speculation, as Dave Meltzer shared the current contract status of The Elite member.
