Adam Page found his success with fans organically thanks to his relatable character work and excellent in-ring skills. He is also part of one of the most compelling storylines in AEW thanks to his storyline with Kenny Omega. Hangman is taking some time off television right now, and he’s slated to miss All Out as well.

Page definitely cemented himself as one of the best workers in the company and he certainly has a lot of history with The Elite, namely Kenny Omega and Young Bucks. During AEW Fight For The Fallen, The Elite faced off against Adam Page and The Dark Order in a 5 on 5 elimination tag team match. If The Elite won, then Adam Page wouldn’t get a shot at the AEW World Championship.

Despite Adam Page’s best efforts, he was unable to win the match and ultimately lost to Kenny Omega in the end. This is due to the fact that Page was not in the plans for a main event match at AEW All Out.

Adam Page has been off AEW television since his loss to Kenny Omega and now the reason for that has been revealed. According to PWInsider, the reason for Page’s absence is because his wife is pregnant with their first child and that it was “always” the plan for him to take time off in order to be with his wife.

For those wondering about Hangman Page, is told that the plan was always for him to take time off for family time in advance of his first child being born.

On another note, AEW also pulled Hangman from a beer commercial, but that had more to do with red tape than his wife.

Christian Cage ended up replacing Adam Page as he will be challenging Kenny Omega for the AEW World Championship at AEW All Out on September 5th. We will have to wait and see when Adam Page will return to AEW television, as it could be a while.
