The original plan for AEW Double Or Nothing was for PAC and Adam “Hangman” Page to have a match. However, close to the event actually happening, it was revealed that “creative differences” were present and the match was cancelled. The bout took place at Wrestle Gate Pro about a week before Double or Nothing instead, with PAC getting himself disqualified for the loss.
We haven’t heard too much, if anything, about PAC’s relationship with All Elite since the Page match was cancelled. However, in an interview with Chris Van Vliet, AEW Executive Vice Presidents Nick and Matt Jackson have revealed the former WWE Superstar will be back in the company eventually (thanks to Fightful for the following transcription):
Matt: He’s coming. I mean, eventually.
Nick: It’s a work in progress. It’s obvious that Matt and I are big fans of his. We met him like 10 years ago over in Japan so we’ll always have ties with him and we wanna work things out with him.
Matt: It’s a priority for us and I think we’re gonna make this thing work.
Nick: I think it’s just a matter of trying to fit his schedule with ours and hopefully, things will work out.
