Hangman Page On The Differences Between Full Gear 2021 And His First AEW World Title Match
Different feelings this time around
Over two years since his last AEW World Title match, Hangman Page will challenge former tag team partner Kenny Omega for the gold at the Full Gear pay-per-view on November 13.
Speaking to Comicbook.com ahead of the match, Page revealed he has very different feelings this time around from his match against Chris Jericho at All Out 2019.
"As a person, as an athlete I like to think a lot and I think that's reflected in whether I can put it into so many words or not how I feel about this coming weekend versus how I felt only days out from that weekend. Very different feelings. I don't want to say confidence because that sounds lame. It sounds dumb, even though it may be true to an extent," Page began.
"I know that when I wrestled Jericho, I was the young guy who joined the Bullet Club who had the break of his career in being able to do that, being able to travel to Japan, who was in all those multi-man matches and who probably got beat in all those multi-man matches with Bullet Club. And the next thing he's challenging for this new championship for a brand new company, headlining a pay-per-view. It didn't add up for people and I think truthfully it didn't add up for me deep inside. I didn't understand how I got in the position. I mean I know that I won a battle royal to get there, but honestly, that doesn't feel as meaningful if I had worked my way up from something more. So, yeah I don't know if I've felt a hundred percent the way that I do now back then."
Since his loss to Jericho, Hangman Page has developed into the biggest babyface in All Elite Wrestling and many fans are ready to see him win the AEW World Title at Full Gear.
