Kenny Omega put the AEW World Title on the line against Adam “Hangman” Page in the main event of Full Gear. As The Invisible Hand, Don Callis, rooted Omega on at ringside, the crowd chanted “let’s go Hangman.”
Near the finish, Kenny Omega pulled the referee in front of Hangman’s Buckshot Lariat. Paul Turner was out cold as Callis brought the AEW World Title into the ring. Hangman punched Callis out, but Omega got the belt. The Cleaner missed the belt shot and Page hit a Dead Eye as Aubrey Edwards ran to the ring to make a two count.
After Kenny Omega kicked out of a One-Winged Angel, his own finisher, Page hit a Buckshot Lariat to the back of Omega’s head. Then he hit one more as the Young Bucks gave him a nod.
Adam Page won the AEW World Title with a clean pinfall and the celebration was very emotional. The Dark Order even joined Hangman in the ring afterward.
