‘Hangman’ Adam Page Injured in Title Bout During Live TV Broadcast

A very scary and confusing incident that aired live on a special Tuesday night edition of TBS’ AEW Dynamite, had viewers aghast, and wrestling fans taking to social media with concern.

During the main event for the AEW World Title between champion, Jon Moxley and challenger, ‘Hangman’ Adam Page, the match came to a sudden and abrupt halt which was not scripted, or planned.

In the ring, Moxley hit Page with hard-hitting King Kong Lariat that sent ‘Hangman’ flipping over and landing awkwardly on his head and neck. When it was apparent that Page was not moving, the referee called for the ringside physician and stopped the bout.

It was at that point that the live television broadcast became very concerning.  The cameras did not show Page being attended to in the ring, but instead cut to the announce table where commentators: Taz, Excalibur, and Tony Schiavone were trying to improvise and pivot, while clearly being stunned by what they were watching unfold in the ring.

While some fans may have thought this was initially a ‘work’, the disorganization of it all took anyone from that belief to that  something seriously happened to Page.  It was made further worrisome, when in order to get Page on a stretcher and out of the ring, they had to lower the ring ropes.

To kill, which was now almost 10 minutes of TV time left on the episode, Excalibur began to rattle off the matches for Friday night’s AEW Rampage. Then, with Hangman being medically attended to backstage, Moxley grabbed the mic and called out to the ring, MJF to end the show.  It was then viewers learned the ultimate game plan.  It will be MJF vs. Moxley at November’s Full Gear pay-per-view for the AEW World Title.

Following the show, AEW put out a statement on Adam Page’s medical condition, revealing he suffered a concussion. It read: “Hangman Adam Page was taken tonight by medical personnel to a Cincinnati trauma center and diagnosed with a concussion. He was discharged, but will remain in AEW’s concussion protocol. AEW and Hangman Page are grateful for the exemplary response and care of staff and local medical personnel, and are appreciative of the love and support of fans everywhere.”

You can watch some of the videos that captured Page’s injury shared on social media from fans who attended the live show in Cincinnati below.  Plus, what the cameras did not catch on the live broadcast.

So, what did you think of ‘Hangman’ being injured this way … and how ‘AEW Dynamite’ handled it live on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.


AEW Head Honcho Tony Khan Previews New Look ‘Dynamite’ and ‘Rampage’ for 2023

When AEW Dynamite marks its first full year on TBS on January 4th live from Seattle (8:00 pm EST), there will be changes afoot in the look and feel of the pro wrestling series as well as its companion show AEW Rampage Friday night’s on TNT.

In a recent interview with TV Insider, AEW’s president, founder and co-owner, Tony Khan teased what the aesthetic changes may be and how it may affect production:

Khan shared: “I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag necessarily, especially so close to the big day. But at the start of 2023, we’re going to open the year on Wednesday, January 4 with the first Dynamite in Seattle, marking a full year of Dynamite on TBS. We’ll definitely have a new look, to say the least. I’m excited about it. I think it’s a nice thing to present to the fans, but frankly, I’ve found more so than ever, the more you talk about these things. When you build them up, you don’t want to create expectations that are impossible. I will say the set will be beautiful though. The look of Rampage will also be different. This will affect the way people view AEW on Wednesdays and Fridays in terms of presentation with the set and the show with the same great action.”

AEW’s Vice President of Post Production Kevin Sullivan also took to Twitter and posted a video teaser for the new look, expressing: “We set out to create a new brand identity for #AEWDynamite with a comprehensive set of package elements. The team is thrilled to finally share our new, bold vision, that will help create a new spirit for the show. This is what 9 months of work looks like in :15. To be continued!”

However, before we get to the new year, there’s the matter of tonight’s final show of the year when AEW Dynamite airs live ‘New Year’s Smash’ beginning at 8 pm ET on TBS.  The big bouts feature Ethan Page vs. Bryan Danielson, Samoa Joe vs, Warlow and the sixth in the best of seven series trios title bouts between The Elite and Death Triangle.  You can watch the promo also below.

So, intrigued to see how the new look ‘Dynamite’ and ‘Rampage’ may raise the bar in production of the two weekly pro wrestling shows? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Tony Khan Confirms William Regal’s Exit from AEW to Return to WWE

On Wednesday, ahead of tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TBS, and to promote Saturday’s Ring of Honor Final Battle pay-per-view, AEW President Tony Khan spoke with the media and answered questions on several topics.

Chief among them is the status of William Regal who reportedly is heading back to the WWE.  In story, Regal was taken out by MJF on last week’s AEW Dynamite, after Regal helped MJF become the AEW World Champion during the main event at the Full Gear pay-per-view in November.   During last week’s episode, Regal was carried out of the ring by stretcher after being clobbered in the head from behind with brass knuckles by the new champ in another swerve.

Today on the media call, Khan reportedly explained the Regal situation sharing that Regal approached AEW executive Megha Parekh and requested to be released form his contract so he could go back and work his “golden years” coaching his son, Charlie Dempsey, and to the WWE.

This all went down around the time Khan was with his mother in Toronto, who was undergoing a major operation when doctors found that she had a spot on her heart and if the spot was removed, that it the best chance of stopping the strokes she was having.  She has already had two strokes, previously.

During this time, Khan arranged a call with Regal and shared that Regal had good intentions for wanting to go back. He was very empathic to the situation, given what he was going through with his mother and his own family at the time.

Khan added that Regal is still with AEW through the holidays, but he wishes William all the best and that it was “hard to see him go”, and they’re going to make some on-screen sacrifices to help him do the right thing for his family.  In addition, Regal’s release was on the condition that he could not be on TV next year, meaning Regal could then only work behind the scenes at WWE, anyway.

Tonight on ‘Dynamite’ look for Khan to address the William Regal situation.

AEW DYNAMITE: The Elite Mock CM Punk In Chi-Town; Jon Moxley Confronts William Regal After ‘Full Gear’ Swerve

Anticipation was high for Wednesday night’s Thanksgiving Eve AEW Dynamite on TBS.  There were plenty of questions to be answered from the fallout from the Full Gear pay-per-view.

Airing live from Chicago, the show opened with William Regal, who came to the ring to address the crowd who were already hostile towards him for his heel turn during Full Gear.  Regal, who had been the manager of the Blackpool Combat Club, and supposedly in then champion Jon Moxley’s corner at Full Gear, passed brass knuckles to MJF, who used them on Moxley to become the new AEW World Champion.  On ‘Dynamite’, Regal had some explaining to do, only we never got the explanation!

When Jon Moxley came to the ring to confront Regal for his betrayal, out came Bryan Danielson.  Danielson pleaded with Mox to not attack Regal, followed by Danielson slapping the former champ in the face.  Moxley eventually told Regal: Lordship, I only want one thing from you.  I want you to run. Run far away, as far away as you can, and you never, ever come back. Right now. Walk. And keep on walking.”

Next, Regal left the ring and headed to the back, but is it for good? Previously, Regal told the crowd, MJF was off shooting a motion picture (The Iron Claw) and would return to ‘Dynamite’ next week and all would be explained.  AEW fans in attendance and the viewers at home were left with basically no answers … for now.

In another major development, during the second in the best of seven trios matches between The Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson) and AEW Trios Champs, Death Triangle (Pac, Rey Fenix, and Penta El Zero Miedo), The Elite effectively mocked CM Punk in the ring during the match.

This did not sit-well with the fans from Chicago.  After all, Punk is their hometown boy.  When Omega bit Pac during the match, it was a mocking of Punk’s friend Ace Steel allegedly biting Omega in the backstage brawl a few months back. Then, Omega hit Punk’s finisher, the GTS to try to pin Pac.

Later, Matt Jackson executed Hangman Adam Page’s signature move, the Buckshot Lariat, but as if he were Punk in his championship match with Page.  In that match, Punk botched the move several times.  It should also be noted, The Elite are friends with Page.

In the end, Death Triangle (using a hammer again) won the match going up 2-o in the best of seven series.

One thing is for sure, Wrestling Observer noted that people in Punk’s camp were not happy with the mockery The Elite made of the backstage brawl, and Punk in the ring, during their match on ‘Dynamite’.

So, why do you think William Regal aligned with MJF? Do you think CM Punk could be on his way back after he is healed from his torn tricep surgery, or is he on his way out of AEW with a contract buyout as has been previously rumored? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out the action of what went down on “Dynamite’ below.
