The Young Bucks: Hangman Page Is The Future Of AEW
The Bucks are full of praise for their former running mate
Adam Page is set for the biggest match of his career in nine days when he faces former tag partner Kenny Omega for the AEW World Championship at AEW Full Gear.
Fans are rallying behind ‘Hangman’ as he looks to finally put The Elite behind him once and for all, but despite their differences on screen, Elite members The Young Bucks know that Page is the future of the company.
The Jacksons revealed as much when they sat down with Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso, saying the following about Page:
“I knew he was special when we specifically told [New Japan Pro-Wrestling referee and executive] Tiger Hattori that he needed to join the Bullet Club,” said Nick Jackson. “He just needed the push to get to where he is now. There’s no doubt that Hangman is the future of AEW. He is arguably the most over guy in our company and I feel like his backstory is very relatable to the fans, which makes his character so compelling. Him and Kenny Omega is box office.”
Matt Jackson added, "Kenny is the greatest singles wrestler in wrestling and we’ve said it for years. Any show that doesn’t have an Elite match in it is going to suffer or just simply not be as good. He’s just like us, always thinking outside the box. No idea is too crazy. That’s how we keep challenging ourselves to get to that next level. Hangman will be the centre of the company long after we’ve all had our moment in the sun. But right now, Kenny is king and he’s on the run of his life.”
