Adam Page addressed his medical status on AEW Dynamite after suffering an injury against Jon Moxley in October.
On the October 18th episode of AEW Dynamite, ‘Hangman’ Adam Page attempted to win the AEW World Championship from then-champion Jon Moxley in the main event of the show. The hard-hitting match came to an abrupt halt when a clothesline from Moxley left Page unmoving on the mat, clearly unable to continue.
After being taken to a hospital and receiving medical attention, it was determined that Page had suffered a concussion, but he assured fans the next day that he was feeling ok after the scary situation took place.
Page made his return to AEW Dynamite in early December with his sights set on attacking Jon Moxley, angry that he’d been taken out of action by the former AEW Champion. However, after multiple brawls, Page was told he was under strict instruction not to get physically involved until he was medically cleared.
On the January 4th episode of AEW Dynamite, Tony Schiavone interviewed Adam Page in the middle of the ring, and Page admitted to the crowd that he was not yet medically cleared. However, he said that he would be able to compete on next week’s episode in answer to Jon Moxley’s challenge last week if he clears one more brain scan.
This brought out Jon Moxley, who said that he’s tired of the candlelight vigil for Hangman Adam Page and after some trouble with his microphone, said that he was tired of Page “playing the victim.”
In retaliation, Page said that he wasn’t angry that Moxley had injured him; instead, he was angry that his foe had made a joke out of the situation, and accused Moxley of feeling threatened by him. He concluded with the words:
“I’ve had two in the chamber with your name on them for a while and you get them at the Forum”.
Moxley made his intentions clear when he said that after the next battle between the two men, Page won’t be able to get up again.
